中美交换生时光:为学习,更为了解

高三中美班刘梦璠

The exchange student experience changed my life forever. I am an exchange student from Qingdao No.19 High School to Talawanda High School for one year, but I didn’t believe the power of being in an exchange program until I’m here, when I participated in the exchange program. I’d like to share a couple of the hundreds of experiences I had while in the U.S. that continue to amaze me.

When I came to here last year, I was afraid my life without my family, friends. I did not have much experience outside my own culture. I learned a lot going to school in the U.S. but the most important lessons I learned were outside of the classroom. The student life is quite different with us. At here after school, we have plenty of time to do things we want to do, like sports, arts, hang out with friends, volunteer etc. I am the member of volunteer club, Chinese calligraphy...These activities could make you enjoy your life at here.Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter...these American traditional festival, I learned the differences with our celebration in china. If you only want to enjoy your senior year at here instead of studying, you are definitely wrong. There are a lot quizzes in different class in one week, and unit test every other week. I do have some homework, while if you manage your time that teachers give you, you will still finish before due day. There is award in each quarter, if your grade is good enough, you will get the certification. I have had three times since I came here. These are just a few of my experiences. There are too many to list. But through all the diverse community service activities, my time at school, with my host family and with new friends, I have I have seen different faces of the United States. Being thousands of miles from home was not always easy. Like everything in life, my experience had its ups but also its downs. The hard times helped me grow up and move away from my comfort zone to gain maturity and independence. Every time I think about my host family, my local coordinator, friends, teachers or fellow volunteers, I cannot help but get emotional. They did so much for me. My host family gave me a place in their hearts and minds. My local coordinator was always there for me whenever I needed her, always making sure that I was adjusting and enjoying my stay here. My teachers and friends have volunteered to help me in the academics and took my situation in consideration whenever I did not understand something that was common knowledge to the other students. The volunteers I worked with tried to make my experience enjoyable and taught me all I needed to know.The lessons I learned will stay with me forever and my belief in cultural exchange will never leave me. 

作为青岛十九中高三中美班的一员,我很荣幸以交换生的身份进入到talawanda high school 的交换学习一年。短短十个月却令人回味无穷,我想在这与大家分享在美国的高中生活经历。

去年我来到这里的时候,我害怕身边没有家人,朋友们陪伴的生活。正是同学们的热情,老师们的鼓励和寄宿家庭的帮助, 我渐渐适应了这里的生活。这里的高中生活与我们大有不同,放学后,我们有很多时间做我们想做的事情,丰富的课余生活比如体育锻炼,和朋友一起出游,志愿者等等。我是志愿者俱乐部的一员,并加入了迈阿密大学书法社团...这些活动可以让你丰富你的课余生活。万圣节,感恩节,圣诞节,复活节...这些美国传统节日,都让我对美国传统节日有了深刻的了解,当然这期间寄宿家庭起了至关重要的作用。如果你只想在这里享受你的高三生活,而不是努力学习,你肯定是大错特错。一周内有不同科目的测验,每隔一周进行单元测试,当一门门复习学案迎面而来的时候,也是不小的压力。在这里每个阶段如果你的成绩足够好,你都会站在领奖台上迎接属于你的荣誉。

但是,距离熟悉的生活数千英里远并不容易。像生活中的一切,我的经历有它的起伏,种种困难帮助我成长,离开我的舒适区,获得成熟和独立,为我将来的大学生活打下了基础。每当我考虑到我的寄宿家庭,我的负责人,朋友,老师,感激的人还有许多许多。我的寄宿家庭给了我一个舒适的家,寄宿爸爸、妈妈就是我的亲人,与他们一起的生活相当幸福。当我需要负责人的时候,她总是在那里确保我在这里的学习和课外生活。我的老师和朋友都帮助我了解这里的文化,与我交流。当然,他们也愿意了解中国的历史与传统文化。

总之,这短短的交换生活令我受益良多,对于将来出国学习的我们是一个很好的经历。希望学弟学妹们珍惜机会,度过美好的高中生活进入到理想的大学!
