Sharing by Students


  Vancouver Summer Program, University of British Columbia, Canada

"I am glad to have had so much fun and memorable moments in Vancouver. This programme offered us lessons of political science and international finance. In UBC, the teaching method is far more interactive, enabling students to express their thoughts. Teachers also encouraged us to discuss and think critically. The programme also offers a wide range of extracurricular activities, such as hiking, blueberry picking, kayaking etc. I could be able to engage in the different cultures and lifestyle of Canada and learn more about the country. I am also able to meet friends from different countries, such as Mainland China, Mexico, the UK, Dubai, India and the Netherlands. By exchanging our cultural ideas, that helps to broaden my horizons."

2017 International Summer School, Pukyong National University,
South Korea


“I enjoyed the Summer School very much and I have participated in many interesting activities with other students from all over the world. Besides offering Korean lessons, the programme also included different activities for us to learn various aspects of Korean culture. We have learnt Taekwondo, traditional music instruments, Korean dance etc. We also took some field trips, including visiting a national park and the United Nations Memorial Cemetery. This fruitful trip gives rise to many happy memories for me as I have built a close relationship with each of the participants during the programme."

 



  2017 Advanced English Language and British Culture Programme, Hertford College, University of Oxford, United Kingdom 

“I totally enjoyed the time spent in Oxford. I could hardly enjoy these activities in Hong Kong, such as playing Frisbee on a large piece of green grass together with new friends and punting in the river under a beautiful sunset. I had the opportunity to meet new friends, try new things and experience life in Oxford. Staying in Oxford helps me to get connected with the daily life of the UK. The atmosphere in the UK is awesome. The most important thing is that I could gain a perception of the British culture and improve my English. What a wonderful trip it is!"

The First 100 Days of Trump Presidency, Study Tour in Washington D.C., US

“During the tour to Washington, Aggie, the coordinator of the programme, introduced the main landmarks to us. She led us to the Newseum, where the most impressive historical events we found were wreckages of 911 Terrorist Incident and the Berlin Wall. Afterwards, we visited the National Air and Space Museum to know more about the history of flight and the lives of astronauts on the moon. We also spent time at the East-West Center, the Heritage Foundation and the US-China Business Council. People there were very friendly and willing to share with us. We had some in-depth discussions, which inspired me to think further on global issues Upon the visit, I had more insights on the situation of human rights and trading between the US and China.”
 



  上海交通大學 2017 年 博物館探索營計劃

今次的上海交通大學2017年博物館探索營令我獲益良多。首先,我被安排到上海電影博物館實習,負責管理及教育互動的工作。而我從小就喜歡看王家衛及梁朝偉的電影,而該館經理得悉後立刻向我展示收藏於館內<色戒>在威尼斯電影節所獲的獎狀,及後又展示模擬<色戒>的拍攝場景。再而講述上海電影的發展,我這才發現原來港滬兩地的電影業不斷相互影響並進行良性競爭,促使港滬兩地成為中國電影業上兩個至關重要的地方。完成博物館的實習後,我們到山西的大同及太原進行考察。我對山西的印象原本以為只有煤及農民,可是經過考察之後才知道山西曾經是古代中國的首都,並且是中原及絲綢之路的必經之路,具有重大的歷史價值。而我最難忘的便是位於大同的懸空寺。該寺體現了古代中國對不同宗教的包容。寺內分別有佛教、道教及儒家的建築。寺廟是建於半山中,而且全寺只由木材建成,是後人都為之驚嘆的建築藝術,令我不禁讚嘆古人的鬼斧神工。

北京語言大學普通話學習與中國文化考察研修班

在這二十一天的北京普通話研修班裡,我跟同學們在學習上有很大的得著。我們幾乎每天都在北京語言大學透過跟隨當地資深的語言系老師,朗讀普通話水平測試指定的課文、參與多次有關主題個人短講和模擬普通話水平測試,清楚了解自己常犯的發音錯誤,繼而進一步糾正自己普通話的發音以及加深認識變聲調的運用。另外,學校還安排一場由普通話水平測試評核員主辦的講座,讓我們了解對普通話水平測試各部分的要求,包括學生常犯的錯誤和發音要注意的地方,對我們未來要面對的普通話水平測試有很大的幫助。學校亦精心安排一些中國文化體驗和參觀活動,例如觀看京劇、學習書法和沏茶及到訪故宮、長城、頤和園等中國著名的歷史古跡,讓我深入認識中華歷史。
