2014年暑假,通过苏教国际组织安排,带17名高中学生去英国游学。英国在我的印象里,一直都仅仅停留于英国女皇,威廉王子,伦敦眼等电视中才出现的画面,但这次前去却给我不一样的感受。

 During the summer vacation of 2014, organized by Jiangsu Education Services for International Exchange (JESIE), 17 high school students had a study tour to Britain. My original impression of Britain was always with those television images of British queen, Prince William, the London Eye, but this year’s trip actually gave me a fresh feeling.

七月十五日,学生们终于在父母的灼热的目光下离开了扬州,又伴着飞机阵阵轰鸣声离开了上海。坐在飞机上,看着脚下的云团像一朵朵棉花,想着自己要带领学生飞向另一个国度,心中充满了责任感,同时也充满对心中科学的圣地——牛津、剑桥的向往。

On July 15th, the students left Yangzhou with parents’ expectations, and soon set off from Shanghai. On the plane, while viewing the cotton-like clouds and thinking of my leading all those students to another country, I felt a strong sense of responsibility on my shoulder and a dream to be lived --- going to the holy lands, Oxford and Cambridge.

11个多小时的飞行时间,朦朦胧胧中我们到达了英国伦敦。拖着行李箱从机场走出的第一步,感受着英国独有的夏日气息,看着周围形形色色的白肤黄发高鼻梁,才真正实实地感受到自己竟然已经在英国了。

We arrived in London after a flight of more than 11 hours. The moment we stepped out of the airport pulling our suitcases we felt we were in a unique British summer. Looking around, all around us were people of blond high nose. Until then we realized that we were really in Britain now.

在接下来的几天中,我们在伦敦,参观了格林尼治天文台,体验了一脚在东半球一脚在西半球的新奇感觉;走在大本钟脚下,听着只有在英国广播中听到的钟声;学习在大英博物馆、圣保罗教堂、国家美术馆,感受英国历史和文化;野餐在海德公园,看着野鸽与人共食,感叹动物与人的和谐相处;散步于泰晤士河,行走在伦敦街头,享受着异国风光。不仅如此,我们又怀着憧憬的心情走进了牛津、剑桥,站在各个学院门口,学生们的心中不免向往有朝一日真正成为其中的学生。

In the next few days, we went to London, visiting Greenwich and experiencing how it felt with one foot in the eastern hemisphere while the other in the Western. We also walked at the foot of Big Ben, listening to the bell rings that could only be heard through BBC broadcast home. We visited the British Museum, St Paul Cathedral, the National Gallery etc, experiencing British history and culture, having a picnic in the Hyde Park, looking at pigeons and people eating harmoniously, walking along the Thames River, wandering in the streets of London, enjoying the exotic scenery etc. On top of that, we also had a walk in Oxford, Cambridge, stood at the gate of each college, all students dreaming some day in the future that they could be part of them.

英国游学之旅给学生以很多的锻炼,留下很多的记忆,也给学生留下很多的思考。东西方文化的区别在哪里?中国教育发展的道路应指向何方?

       The study tour to Britain not only gave students a chance to polish up their abilities, but it also had much kept in their memories and set them thinking a lot. What are exactly the differences between eastern and Western cultures? How can education of China achieve better?
