美国归来(四)心里的话 Words From The Heart                           夏令营学生感想,日记摘录

 

2013广州二中美国科技夏令营系列报道四(共四)

 

……寻梦……

     

          柳乔丰高一(1)班            

活在梦中           

  紧闭双眼,再睁开的时候,一束耀眼的光线照进眼眸。

到了。嗯,这片我还未踏足的大陆、我在梦中无数次梦见的遥远大陆,将出现在我的眼前。朦胧中我仍然感到渺小的大家乘着风,遨游在无边无际的海洋上方,沐浴着远远的落日洒下的余晖。

     在郊区公路上,我透过车窗,望着那些从我身边匆匆掠过的景物。草地随处可见,那里也是孩子们的圣地吧。沿路上也可以看到各种各样的树木,错落有致地排列着。

美国人的房子都是沿路而建的。从中,我看到美国人的别出心裁:他们会在门前的小花园里种上几束别样的花,而且他们也很讲究搭配,给经过这里的人一种别致的感觉;花园前铺着一条弯弯曲曲的小径,小孩们在这里嬉戏的画面浮现在我的眼前;他们也很讲究空间感和与众不同,房子都建得各有特色,而且一家与一家之间隔着一定的距离,让人看着不觉得拥挤。

梦的不同

大家首先到达的是菲尔勒狄更斯大学。它拥有美国大学赋予 大家的大部分印象:清新的空气,随处可见宽阔的草地、高大的树木,各种有趣的动物,各式各样的新式建筑,静谧清幽的校道。因为出发前几天大家恰好参观过北大清华,所以大家自然而然地对它进行了对比。参观北大清华的时候虽然大家也有校园很大、树木很多的印象,但是不及的是,那里的空气完全不及狄更斯大学,可能是因为那里经常有人开车穿行吧。而在北大清华却也少见各式各样的动物,而且人声、汽车鸣笛声交杂得也愈发不像是在校园里。在狄更斯大学,经常会有一些小鸟停在地面上休息。甚至还有同学在那里看到了小鹿。

在大学里,大家首先参与了一些课程。对于我和几位高 中同学来说,这些课程十分轻松。于是,我就关注了一些课堂常识外的东西。这些课堂的内容和初中常识的程度十分接近。初中的同学们也十分认真。给大家上课的老师是本校的毕业生。她选择给大家上一些有趣的内容,让大家找乐子。比如,第一天,她就让大家发挥天马行空的想象写下一句话作为开头,然后传给下一位同学,让他在后面再接着写,然后再传给下一位同学以此类推。写完再让同学们朗读“佳作”,在欢笑中提高写作水平。还有,就是为了让大家熟悉一些单词,特地设计了游戏,让大家在户外玩起来。她选择让大家按照自己的兴趣选择内容来学。在上课的2个小时里,但是大家却一点都不觉得枯燥。一节课可能大家学习的内容不算很多,可是正是这样,体现了美国教育“学习不在多,重在理解”的观念。所以初中的同学们也很开心,很快懂得了很多还未接触到的常识。

这次的旅行中,有一部分是参观博物馆。在华盛顿特区,有专门的一块区域专门设立各种博物馆给人们参观。我也通过这 次参观学习到了很多常识。了解到了一些课本从未提及的美国历史。(而且在参观自由科学博物馆的时候,我还发现了一点:博物馆内,有一处有一个很大的两个类似链条的东西,旁边有个可以摇动的转动杆。当我转动它的时候,我发现两条链条缠绕在了一起。我瞬间意识到了这是DNA骨架的模型。但是那里却不是直接告诉你那是什么的模型,而是选择让你自己体会,然后有兴趣的人可以扫描旁边的二维码了解365bet体育官网的东西。)这就是美国和中国的不同,很多时候中国人会选择“授人以鱼”,而美国人却总是选择“授人以渔”。

在繁华的New York City的街头,到处是熙熙攘攘的人群。豆粒大的雨点开始肆意地落着。很多人都像这样:左手提着皮制公文包,右手臂上挂着一杯咖啡,右手撑伞,肩上还夹着一台手机,在通话中。他们都是这样匆匆地路过。建筑和建筑  的转角暗处,我却看见了有人在雨中颤抖着,勉强地依靠在墙角下,头低着,任由雨点顺着发梢滑落。截然不同。我瞬间明白了,美国是这样的一个适者生存的资本主义社会。大家看《中国合伙人》也能体会到这点吧。就是这样的强者留下,弱者淘汰。对,也正是因为美国人民足够强大,才能成功赶走英军,获得独立战争的胜利,并在这里建立了美利坚联邦。这点也是自他们建国伊始就深入人心的一种规则啊。

在旧金山的时候,导游和大家讲到恶魔岛和天使岛。他说,其中的天使岛就是用来关押那个时候前往美国的华人的。在刚开始的时候,华人是最不被当地人敬重的群体。而当时他们很大一部分即使通过了天使岛的近乎变态的检查后,也要通过打黑工过活。但是他们却没有丧失骨气。即使在这么艰难的情况下,他们依然坚持了下来。甚至后来还建成了旧金山这个城 市。这让大家要知道,无论在哪里、身处何等艰难的境地,大家都要做有骨气的中国人,都要做打不倒的巨人,靠自己的努力闯出自己的一片天。

梦的思考

漫步在斯坦福、哈佛等名校的校园中,望着蔚蓝的天空,我陷入了沉思。美国,真的是一个十分值得来的地方。看着眼前如此美丽的校园,我不禁赞叹。真希翼以后能有机会再来这里,来这里学习常识,并生活一段时间。这是多棒的梦啊。但是,什么可以撑起我的留学梦、美国梦呢?我想了很久。虽然我也可以依靠我的父母的帮忙,但是我觉得,那些真正有骨 气的人是靠自己的努力去实现梦想的。我要做那些有骨气的人。我想,只有常识,才能我的命运改变。其实,我知道,和我一样有这到美国留学梦想的同学不在少数。我希翼,大家可以一起加油,通过努力学习,一步一步地,实现大家大大的梦想。大家不要做只会做梦的做梦者,要做懂得去梦想并去实现梦想的梦想家。与你们共勉。

Trip to the IVY常春藤之旅[]

肖雨菲 本部初二9

 I have visited New York, Washington D.C., Boston, San Francisco and other cities in the US Summer Camp during this summer holiday. We all had a  wonderful time there and we have learned a lot.

The first five days, we attended lessons at the famous Fairleigh Dickinson UniversityFDU. The location of the university was someone's estate many years ago. The owner died and it became a university. (Our teacher said his ghost may come out at night!)

We had ESL lesson in the morning and science lesson in the afternoon. It's a bit difficult to learn science lesson abroad since there are many special words we have never learned before. But we got used to it soon with the help of the teachers. The ESL lessons are so interesting that we even had lessons  in the garden. Our teacher, Mr. Anthony was surprised when he knew there are 50 students in a class in China. He said that would be horrible to teach 50 children at the same time.

There are many animals in the university. Squirrelslittle raccoons and deer can be seen here and there. They are so afraid of humans that they always hide themselves somewhere nearby.

Then we visited Liberty Science Center, National Museum of Natural History, National Museum of Air and Space. We saw many amazing animals like poisonous frogs and lizards in Liberty Science Center.  There are too many things to see, but we spent too much time on the way, so we don't have enough time. What a pity!

We also visited some other famous campuses like Columbia University, the  West Point, Harvard University, MIT and Stanford University. We saw some children playing football in the university. They were enjoying summer holidays, just like us.

In the last two days, we were in San Francisco, where it was much cooler than in Guangzhou. Most of us didn't bring enough clothes. But we still had a nice time in San Francisco. We visited the Museum of Intel, the Golden Gate and the Fisherman's Wharf. Then we went back to Guangzhou.

I won't forget this valuable experience forever.

[] 常青藤联盟

常青藤盟校的说法来源于上世纪的50年代。早期的常青藤学院只有哈佛、耶鲁、哥伦比亚普林斯顿4所大学。4罗马数字"IV",加上一个词尾Y,就成了"IVY",英文的意思就是常青藤所以又称为常青藤盟校,后来这4所大学的联合会又扩展到8所,成为如今享有盛誉的常青藤盟校。

它们是:马萨诸塞州的哈佛大学,康涅狄克州的耶鲁大学,纽约州的哥伦比亚大学,新泽西州的普林斯顿大学,罗德岛的布朗大学,纽约州的康奈尔大学,新罕布什尔州的达特茅斯学院和宾夕法尼亚州的宾夕法尼亚大学。

新常春藤

新常春藤(New Ivy),或者称为泛常春藤,指的是除了上述八所学校之外的美国顶尖大学或文理学院。它们的生源教授毫不逊色于常春藤大学,而在诺贝尔等奖项和校友质量方面甚至比常青藤更出色. 2012年评选出的新常青藤名单包括:

私立大学 斯坦福大学 、埃默里大学、圣母大学、圣路易斯华盛顿大学、波士顿学院、塔夫茨大学、伦斯勒理工学院、卡内基梅陇大学、范德比尔特大学、麻省理工学院、加州理工学院、罗彻斯特大学、莱斯大学、纽约大学

公立大学密歇根大学(安娜堡分校)、加州大学洛杉矶分校、加州大学伯克利分校、弗吉尼亚大学、北卡罗来纳大学教堂山分校、威廉玛丽学院

文理学院:鲍登学院、韦尔斯利学院、斯沃斯莫尔学院、科尔盖特大学、里 德学院、斯基德莫尔学院、阿默斯特学院、富兰克林欧林工程学院、科尔比学院、戴维逊学院、凯尼恩学院、威廉姆斯学院、麦卡利斯特学院等.

Happy Camp

  本部初一5

 This summer, I went to America for the summer camp .We stayed in the  Fairleigh Dickinson University for four days. I have experienced the college life. It's very different from China. People there are so nice, they help each other and they are very polite. After this trip, I deeply feel that America is a free country.

We visited from the east to the west in America after we left the college. The street and the buildings are very clean and simple, unlike China. The Lincoln Memorial Hall is the great buildings to commemorate this great man, who was the 16th President of the United States.               

In my opinion, American government pays attention to people's life, for example, education and medical treatment. They spend their money on the people rather than on the city beautiful. That's why America is the world's great power.

I learnt a lot about America from this summer camp. It shows me a better country. I wish China can catch up with America in the future. I love America! And I also had a great time in the United States.

A perfect summer camp

                                田源 苏元初一(4)班

This summer holiday was the best summer holiday in my life.  I went to  summer camp in America for 15 days. I learned a lot there.

 This summer camp not only taught me how to speak English well, but also gave me courage. I was a shy girl before. I used to be afraid of talking with foreigners. I thought I can’t speak English well, so I never talked to the foreigners. After this summer camp, I can speak English a little better than before. The most of all, I can talk to the foreigners and won’t be shy any more. If I don’t know how to say a word, I can use my body language to tell him.

I think this summer camp was full of fun. Everybody was divided into groups and did some interesting games. After playing games, we understood each other. These games made us more unity.

We learned a lot of knowledge in the USA. We visited the Liberty Science Center, the National Museum of Natural History and the National Museum of Air and Space. I saw some endangered animals and some strange animals in the Liberty Science Center. We cannot see these in China.

I have to say American food is very delicious. I like pizza best. There is plenty of cheese in American pizza. It tasted much better than Chinese pizza. It was very big, but it was so yummy that I ate 3 pieces. I will not forget the taste forever.

At last, America is a good place to visit. Everyone can learn what you want to know, such as Biology, Science, History and so on. Fifteen days is too short to visit America. If I get the chance, I will go to America again and learn about it more.

About the USA

                                                       李欣玥 苏元 初一2

For the first time I went out so far away from home for 15 days, I felt very excited. Although a little nervous for the unknown country, the United  States, I will do my best to seize this rare chance to learn more.

FDU is a beautiful place with quiet environment, green grass and tall trees. Here, I felt the breath much different from China.

Look! There was a squirrel on tree trunks. It is very lovely. In China, we can't usually see these lovely animals but they are everywhere in the United States. It can be seen that the environment here is better than the environment in China! Our teaching building is really big and beautiful. It looks like a castle!

My favorite city in the United States is Washington D.C. because it is very clean and there are many beautiful white houses in Washington. I love the white houses. We also visited the Capitol building after we arrived in Washington. It is tall and it has a round roof. We took photos in front of the building. The sun was shining and we felt hot but happy.  There were many lovely ducks swimming in the lake.

My favorite university in the United States is the Stanford University. It is the one of the most beautiful and largest universities in the USA. My favorite building in the Stanford University is the church. The church is really big and glorious! There is a big statue in the front of the church. When we came in the church, we felt quiet. The Stanford University is large. We walked along the road and we felt good. It is a nice place to study!

America is a beautiful and advanced capitalist country. I love America and I learn a lot from this trip! I felt sad when I had to leave this country.

柳乔丰 高一(1

My dream place and the best choice for traveling is always USA. After a long and tiring flight, we finally arrived at the Fairleigh Dickinson University, our destination of the USA Summer Camp.

As I set foot on The American continent, an inexpressible feeling was poured into my mind. The rosy sky, a lovely cool breeze, the beautiful scenery were all around me. Then, I took a deep breath, and whispered "America, here I came." This feeling might be the same as what Columbus felt when he first arrived here.  What an amazing and incredible feeling!

Birds’ singing, children’s smiling and wind's breezing are all combined to make a beautiful, pleasant and natural picture. What really surprised me is that we can see deer here in the campus, which reminds me that few days earlier, I had a chance going to Beijing and visited the Qsinghua University and Peking University. When walking through the paths in them, I just can confirm that it is in China. "The world is theirs." However, in FDU, things are entirely different. What a place!

This morning, when we entered the classroom, a young girl sat there waiting for us. She introduced the college to us. From her short but brief introduction, I knew that there were going to be various activities in and after class. And the students here have a very flexible schedule. They have a lot of time to exercise and strengthen their bodies. What a life!
     I really appreciate and enjoy the life here. More curiosities crowded my mind. What a trip!  

徐心悦 苏元初一(2

Today is an amazing day!

I got up at a quarter past seven. The weather was cloudy and  it was a  little cooler than yesterday. Then, I brushed my teeth and washed my face . After doing that, I went to have my breakfast. I ate bread, potatoes and sausages for breakfast. They were very yummy. Tasty food made me happy.

Then, we had a lesson. The English class was very fun, especially the game which was called “Simon Said”. Theis game was good for my reaction speed. Many classmates made mistakes. This game was not difficult and it was full of joy.

In the afternoon, we had a chemistry class. In China, students had the chemistry in Grade 9. But I ‘m just in Grade 7, so I felt it was difficult.

I attained new knowledge today and I felt very happy. What a nice day!

陈洛然 苏元初一(2

I have to leave here tomorrow.

 It’s so sad! I will miss here! Today we had a delicious meal outside the Dinning hall. We took photos with our teachers. Pamela wore a blue shirt. She ‘s still so beautiful. Anthony likes smiling so it’s happy to have his classes. All the beautiful things will go away tomorrow. I will leave here and maybe never come to FDU again. I heard that Anthony will get married with another teacher who taught my classmates today. I really hope they will have a great life together. They are both humorous!

张逸 本部初一(10

Today is sunny and hot. I got up early. Then I went to the canteen with my two friends. The breakfast was good.

At 8:30, we had an interesting English lesson. In the class, we  played games and visited the school.

In the afternoon, a teacher told us about the school. It was very boring for I didn’t understand his words but I liked this school very much.

In the dinner, we had a “BBQ” with our teachers. It was very happy. We all enjoyed ourselves.

07.24

田源 苏元初一(4

Today, we visited the Liberty Science Center. I saw a lot of interesting things there. The most interesting place was the Eat and Be Eaten. I saw plenty of strange animals that I’ve never seen before.

The introduction is all in English so I couldn’t understand most of them. What a pity! I had to look up the words in the dictionary often. At last , I understand some of them.

I want to come to the LSC again when I grow up. Then I won’t need the dictionary any more and understand all.

07.25

吴芊芊 本部初一(10

We got up very early to have a new day. First , we went to the National Museum of Nature”. We can see many interesting things in it. Then we went to “National Museum of History”. Our school teacher Mr. Chen  told us many things and then we knew the history of America flag, the president, the clothes, the buildings and the other things.

We went to the National Museum of Air and Space”which was so beautiful. But there were too many people in it including Chinese. At night, I was very tired, and my head felt uncomfortable. I had a very bad night.

07.26

田源 苏元初一(4

This was a new day! In the morning, we went to visit New York City. It was the biggest city in America. First, we visited the White House. It was the President Obama’s home. It wasn’t very big, but it was beautiful. And then, we went to a lot of memorial halls about famous people in the USA. I thought Americans are proud of them. I was excited to see these revolutionaries.

07.27

高鸿楷 本部初一(10

Wall Street was beautiful. There is a gold bull in the street corner.  After visiting the Wall Street we went to visit the statue of Liberty by boat. There are many many people in New York and the time square is very busy.

07.29

王浩玮 苏元初一(3

After breakfast, we went to Boston. There are many famous universities in it. In the morning, we arrived at Yale University. It is a beautiful school with a very long history. We visited its library, restaurants and teaching buildings. Then we played games in the school. All of us ran about, jumped excitedly, laughed highly and smiled happily. We all had fun there.

In the afternoon, we went on our travel. We went to Boston by bus. When we arrived in it, it was very late. It was getting dark. All of us felt very tired so we fell asleep as soon as we went to bed.

07.30

张明禹 本部初一(10

Today, we went to visit Harvard University. This university is very ancient. We visited the statue of the founder of the University and took many  pictures. After that we visited Boston Park and ate lunch. In the afternoon we visited Kunxi market later we went to the airport for San Francisco.

It was too late and cold. I was very tired but very happy. I enjoy this trip very much.

07.31

陈洛怡 苏元初一(2

Today, we met a new tour guide – Mr. Chen. He is a humorous man who knows a lot about American places of interests.  He is not only patient but also careful. We visited Stanford University in the morning. It is a beautiful school with a long history. Then we went to the Golden Gate Bridge. It is an old bridge. A lot of visitors from many countries came to visit it because of its beauty. After that, we went to have dinner and went back to the inn. (PS: The inn is the worse inn that I have ever seen.)

 

 

后记:

一年一度的二中海外修学夏令营结束一个月了。Rose老师在电脑前颈酸眼花地抄写着同学们的游学手稿,并一一地为发过来的稿件做修改,还得为文章放上网站前做所有的图文准备,在录入的过程中又得绞尽脑汁地尽量做到图文匹配,她感觉好像有点......。但当她一边做一边看到带队老师和同学们写下的篇篇心得和体会,尤其是看到初一的小同学们流畅自如的英文表达,她的内心充满着喜悦。因篇幅所限未能将所有来稿登出,请谅。

亲爱的读者谢谢您对二中国际部的关注,希翼来信:ioffice@gdgzez.com 分享心中的故事。
