SEI 2017 每日更新 第二十三日


Headed to San Francisco

前往旧金山

Early this morning, staff and students loaded onto four 50+ passenger charter buses and headed to the great city of San Francisco. After a long and exciting few days of travel week, it was fitting for the students to have a chance to sleep, relax, rest and enjoy the ride. The full day trek across The Golden State was beautiful, offering gorgeous views – unique to California! Because of the length of the trip, the scenery continued to change throughout the journey. Many students appreciated looking at the rolling hills, towering mountains, and stunning California saplings, while others enjoyed watching a variety of American movies to keep them entertained, while on the bus.
SEI 同学和工作人员们一大清早就坐上了四辆50余座的舒适大巴,前往旧金山这座大城市。在漫长又充满激情的几天旅行周后,放松的睡眠和轻松的旅途正是同学们所需要的。在公路旅行的这一天,我们横跨黄金之州,一览壮丽的美景,而这美景是加利福尼亚州独有的!因为这趟旅程跨越的区域够广,一路的风景不断变换,(让人应接不暇)。部分同学被路上起伏的群山、巍峨的山壁,以及美丽的加州树苗所吸引。其他的同学则在车上看不同的美国电影来消遣。

Getting Settled

安顿下来

Upon arriving in San Francisco, students checked into their hotel room after eating dinner at a local mall. After settling in, many students took a dip in the hotel pool, watched TV and spent quality time with their roommates. This quality time was very beneficial, as students will begin to part ways in just a few short days. Tomorrow, the group will tour a prestigious American university – Stanford – and visit the Golden Gate Bridge before the final “SEI 2017 Farewell Party”.
到达旧金山后,同学们在当地一家商场内吃完晚饭,便一起入住酒店。安顿后,一些同学到酒店的游泳池里嬉戏,看电视,并与室友们一起度过的时间。这段时间对于同学们特别弥足珍贵,因为说再见的日子不远了。明天,SEI大队伍会参观非常有名望的美国大学——斯坦福大学——然后前往金门大桥后,会举行2017SEI的告别派对。

Reflections from an SEI Student

一位SEI学生的反馈

“SEI has given me more confidence to speak in English. Coming from a place where my home language is IsiXhosa, and one didn’t have to speak English all the time, SEI has made me confident in speaking it. This opportunity has made me grow in my reading and writing skills of English. Being here has made me a different person than who I was before. It has made me grow and I have personally learned a lot.”
-Zikho Gwengu
SEI建立了我说英语的自信。我家乡的语言是IsiXhosa,我们并不需要总是说英语,SEI让我对于讲英语更有自信了。 这次机会提升了我的英语阅读理解和写作能力。在这里我被彻底地改变了,这个营会使我成长,并学习到了很多!”
