Yuxian teaching program

6/7/2020 - 6/20/2020 河北蔚县支教项目

Yuxian County is located in Hebei province and 265 kilometers away from Beijing. Yuxian is an Ancient Town, rich in history and culture but economic underdeveloped. Yuxian county hope their students improve the English and can introduce the culture to Foreign friends. Our volunteer program mainly teaches English inNuanquan Central School. We will teach 5th Grade。

Students of Nuanquan Central School hope that through this cultural exchange between China and the United States, the children can broaden their horizons, increase their interest in English,improve their conversational English, and gain self-confidence. At the same time, the students should be able to express, understand and explain their own culture and the world.

For the American volunteers, objectives include understanding the Chinese cultural symbols of Yuxian County, then teaching it to the students in English. Another objective is working with the school's lesson " Nuanquan, a famous historical and cultural town in China", to assist the Chinese students in completing the Nuanquan Cultural Interpreter Project. The project includes the creation of a presentation in both Chinese and English, and organizing a presentation competition (the Chinese content will be provided by the Chinese side), help in making Chinese and English cultural performances, and develop the students’ ability to host foreign visitors and explain the town’s culture to them in English.

 河北省蔚县距离北京265公里,是中国历史文化名镇,现为国家AAA级旅游景区,但经济不发达。蔚县人们希望他们的孩子能提高英语表达能力,可以给外国朋友介绍他们的文化。我们的义工项目主要到蔚县暖泉镇中心校教授英语,我们教的学生是5年级。   

暖泉中心校学生,希望通过此次中美文化的交流活动,让孩子们开阔眼界,增强对英语的兴趣,加强英语口语能力,对自己文化的了解与讲解能力。了解世界文化语言,增强自我信心。

美国学生志愿者的具体工作:了解蔚县中国文化符号,翻译为西方人可以理解的语言。结合学校的校本课《中国历史文化名镇—暖泉》,协助中国孩子完成暖泉小小文化讲解员项目,包括讲解词的中英文编写,ppt的制作,组织孩子们进行讲解比赛(中文内容中方会提供),协助创作中英文文化表演,提高中国孩子的表达能力,接待外国人的能力。

Chinaway Program Multidimensional Think

做义工越多越好吗?

随着美国名校在录取学生时对学生关爱社会或社区服务元素的强调,华人孩子做义工的趋势持续高涨,有些孩子甚至每年做义工达400~500小时。但这有助于名校录取吗?

社区服务即义工的定义是干对他人有益的事而不要求报酬;做对社区有益的事,没有报酬,而且必须是非盈利的领域。
