    2018年12月3日,第73届联合国大会第44次全体会议通过决议,将每年1月24日定为“国际教育日(International Day of Education)”。国际教育日倡导“使所有人可以拥有终身学习的机会”,这与枫叶“致力于不分种族、肤色、国籍,为所有受教育者提供一流的教育服务”的使命高度吻合,这充分体现了枫叶的国际化和多样性。

    As a Foreign Student in Maple Leaf

    Maple Leaf International Schools - Hainan

    Being an ocean and thousands of miles from where I grew up from, I came to Maple Leaf (district of Hainan) BC high school during the summer of 2018 as a foreign student.

    Arriving in China, my parents and I have decided to select Maple Leaf as my school. When I first got here, I was unfamiliar with the culture and traditions, especially with the Chinese language. Consider the fact that I never spoke Chinese back in America, learning the language was a great challenge for me. Besides from education, I believe living here is like living in a different world and surprisingly, it was easy integrating into the society. Life on this campus has a great difference compared to my old school back in the United states. 

    Being a foreign student could also gain an unforgettable experience living in a different environment. Interacting with people from a different nation and learning the culture. I had to slowly immerse and integrate into the society here and the traditions or manners in China. A difficulty would be that there may sometimes be some cultural shocks as I may not understand every aspect of the traditions here. Some ways that I might’ve know back from where I was may not be appropriate here.  Every now and then I would often have grammar errors translating English into Chinese. Although the way I say it is incorrect since it is different when it is English grammar to Chinese.

    It is certainly hilarious when you often misunderstand people or don’t even understand when they are saying. Often times, all I could do is nod my head when someone ask a question I don’t understand in Chinese. It can be confusing when you learn in both languages. I realize that I still need to work harder in learning Chinese. One major comparison is the school type, a public school from where I was and a private school here. However, I’m not used to the uniforms and staying at a boarding school, but I chose to respect and abide by it.

    During my time here, I believed I’ve gained more confidence from presentations and socializing more with my classmates. At least once a week, we would have either a team project or an oral presentation. I could greatly enhance the academics taken here. For science10, we went over four different kinds: Biology, Chemistry, Physics, and Earth Science. We learned slowly and cautiously sections by section for every subject.

    Some of my favorite activities and memories that I cherish is when I met amazing people like my teachers, friends, and participated in many event occasions. These social activities had influenced me to become more confident in different situations. I think I have gained a lot of knowledge on public speaking as well through all the hosting activities and presentations. 

    Constantly, I relied on support from the activities to build up my confidence. At first, I may have encountered fear of being not used to socializing but successfully got the hang of it. I felt welcomed when I first got here and friends here appears to be closer and seems as if we’re a family. I love the presence of my new friends, teachers, and classmates. 

    Overall, I believe living in a different country is like taking an intriguing voyage to a new world. The language and school’s learning system is certainly different. It is an amazing opportunity to explore various types of traditions and cultures. I got to experience new ways of learning things as wonderful teachers and classmates slowly mentored me. With plenty of things to get used to, I believe in the family of "Chinese and Western optimization" in Maple Leaf, I am going to have a great experience. As a great education system, Maple Leaf help students to explore their potential and realize their dreams, I look forward to gaining more in Maple Leaf.

    作为一名枫叶的国际生

    海南枫叶国际学校

    上个暑假,我远渡重洋,以一名国际生的身份来到海南枫叶国际学校的BC高中。

    到了海南,我和我的父母选择了枫叶国际学校。初来乍到,我对这里的文化、风俗,特别是语言感到很陌生。因为我在美国长大,几乎没说过汉语,所以语言对我来说是个巨大的挑战。除了学习,我认为生活在这里就像到了一个充满惊喜的世界。中美两国的校园学习、生活有很大差别,我没想到,融入到这个集体当中,竟是如此的自然。

    作为一名国际生,我在枫叶收获了许多珍贵而难忘的经历。通过与中国同学的合作交流,和学习他们的文化,我慢慢地融入这里的圈子,领会中国的传统和礼仪。然而,当两种文化碰撞时,难免会出现“文化冲突”。当我遇到与美国截然不同、难以理解的现象时,我选择了尊重和学习。比如在中文学习上,我在“英译中”时,往往会出现一些语法错误,因为中英文的语法不同。

    当你经常误解别人,甚至不理解别人说的话时,那当然是很滑稽的。一开始,当有人用中文向我发问时,我只能点头。当你用两种语言学习时,可能会感到困惑,我意识到我在中文学习上还需更加努力。中美学习的另一个主要区别是学校体制,对比我在美国上的公立学校,在这里我需要穿制服并住在寄宿学校,但我选择尊重和遵守。

    在这里,我从课堂展示和与同学的交往中获得了更多的自信。我们每周至少会有一次小组合作项目或者口头报告,我的学术水平有了大大的提高。在科学课上,我们有条不紊地学习生物、化学、物理和天文这四门科目。

    人际交往使我变得更加自信,我很珍惜我所遇到的这些亲切的老师和可爱的朋友们。另外,在主持活动和表演展示中,我充分锻炼了自己的能力。

    一直以来,我在枫叶参加的各项活动帮助我提升了自信心和融入了集体。我初来乍到就受到大家的接纳,同学们也渐渐与我成为朋友,让我感受到集体的温暖。我很喜欢并感恩我在这里的老师、同学和朋友。

    总的来说,我认为在一个不同的国度生活就像是一场通往新世界的旅行。陌生的语境、不同的学习体系,是我探索多元文化的绝佳的机会。虽然,还有很多生活、学习习惯仍在磨合中,但我相信在“中西教育优化结合”的枫叶大家庭中,我将经历一段美好的时光。枫叶作为一个科学的教育体系,帮助莘莘学子发掘潜能、实现自我,我期待着在枫叶收获更多。
