    拥抱加拿大

    大连枫叶国际学校  唐漫

    当我离开空调,走下大巴的的那一刻,耀眼的阳光和闷热的空气立刻将我包围住,使我不快地皱了皱眉头。看来加拿大并不是像我想象的一样,有着凉爽的夏天,是一个终年寒冷的国度。其实他们的夏天也能让人抓狂。我皱着眉头,用手遮挡着阳光,慢慢抬起头,眯着眼睛看向我眼前的这所大学 。我立马脱口而出:

      The moment when I left the cool air conditioning, stepped off the bus, the glare of the sun and the hot air immediately surrounded me, made me frowned with displeasure. Canada was not the same as I thought, which has a cool summer, and is cold all year round. In fact, the summer can also make people mad. I frowned and kept out the sun with my hand, raised my head slowly,looked at the university in front of me.Immediately I blurted out:

      “哇塞!太漂亮了。”

      “Wow! So beautiful!

        这简直就是一个古香古色的大城堡。青苔和藤蔓攀附在沥青色的房砖上。沿着通往城堡的小路看去,就能看到一块块石板,上面写满了这所学校的历史。城堡下面绿树成荫。

    This is a giant ancient castle, with mosses and vines clambering on the wall. When you look along the path to the castle, you will see pieces of slabs, which are full of the history of the school. Under the castle, there are full of trees.

        我的心情立马好起来了。这所大学叫做皇家大学,是一所非常古老的学校,其中有一些专业是世界上都少有的专业呢。听说我们的任董事长,也曾在这里获得过学士学位。

      I became happy at once. This school is called Royal Roads University, which is very old. Some of the majors are very rare even in the whole world! I have heard that our principal has received a bachelor's degree in this school.

        迎面向我们走来了一位面带笑容的中国解说员。在一所外国大学里能听到中文的讲解实在是让人倍感亲切。她和几位中国学生带领我们参观了整个校园。国王大学真的是太美了,清澈的小溪,满眼的翠绿,根本不足以形容这里的美景。走在湖边时,微微的清风让人心旷神宜。这为学生提供了一个很好的学习环境。想像一下,午休的时候,漫步到湖边的小庭院里,深吸一口新鲜空气,拿起课本静静地思考,再难的题都能解出来了!听解说员说,这里在很久很久以前是一个私人城堡,主人因为喜爱花花草草,才建了这么一个美丽的大花园。可如今几百年过去了,它还是这么迷人。时光已逝,花香永存。

      Here comes a Chinese commentator with smile on her face. It’s so hospitable to hear Chinese in a foreign university. She showed us around the campus with several Chinese students. King's college was so beautiful. Its not enough at all to use the words clear streamsor green to describe here. While we were walking along the lake, the wind made me very comfortable. I thought it was a very good learning environment for students. Imagining, after lunch, walking to the small courtyard beside the lake, taking a deep breath and thinking quietly. Any problems can be solved! The commentator said that the university was a private castle long long ago, and because the master loved flowers, he built this large, beautiful garden. A few hundred years have already gone, but it is still charming. Time cant stop the beauty of the flowers.

        然而光看景色怎么行呢?有心的国王学校为我们安排了一堂课,来体验在大学上课的感觉,同时也能锻炼我们的动手能力和合作能力。教室里,我们五六个人围成一桌,互相嘀嘀咕咕着,欣喜又紧张地等待着自己人生中第一堂大学课程的到来。只见一位教授走到了教室中央,开始给我们讲解这堂课的内容。这是一堂实践课,我们需要以五六个人为单位组成一个小组,在规定的时间内,用桌子上现有的器材,为鸡蛋做出一个防护层,使它从几米的高空坠落,却不摔碎。天啊,这也太难了吧。

      However,it’s not enough to only see scenery. The king school arranged a class for us, in order to experience the feeling of studying in a university. At the same time, we also can also practice our manipulative abilities and cooperation abilities. In the classroom, around every table, there were about five or six people. We were whispering to each other, and waiting for our first university class in our life happily and nervously. I saw a professor walking into the the classroom, and started to teach. It was an activity lesson, and we needed to find a group of five or six people.We should use the equipments on the table, and make a protection for the egg, so that it wont break when it is thrown from a few meters high. Oh my god, it was too hard.

        还没等我反应过来,计时开始了。每个组的每一个人都开始忙活起来了。只见我们组的智商担当“神女”同学猛地抓起一叠彩纸,嘴里喊着:“快!把所有东西都缠在鸡蛋外面,有什么缠什么!“所有人都立马反应过来,手忙脚乱地开始行动。我也赶紧拿起一卷胶带,一等他们包裹完,我就”刷“地撕开胶带,非常”草率“地把鸡蛋缠了一圈又一圈。我们又在包裹外面套上了纸杯,并用橡皮筋固定住。剩下的时间越来越少。渐渐地,我们组越来越默契了,鸡蛋的防护层已经成了鸡蛋的好几倍。就在倒计时还剩下两三分钟的时候,我突然发现在桌子上,有一个没有被用上的透明密封袋。我拿起了它,惊喜地看向我们组的成员。不知是谁灵机一动,说:”快把鸡蛋装进袋子里,吹满气!”“神女”同学赶快把鸡蛋装了进去,拿起吸管,把袋子吹得鼓鼓的。我们全组成员都有些佩服自己的机智了,每个人笑得眼泪在眼圈。老师们从我们组旁边经过,对我们的成果指指点点,还满意地点了点头。我可真是高兴得心里就跟吃了蜜一样甜。

    Timing began so quickly that I didn’t have time to react. Everyone started to work. The student who had the highest IQ in our group shouted: "quickly! Put everything around the egg!" Everyone reacted immediately, and started doing their jobs. I hurriedly picked up a tape, as soon as they finished, I would stick the tape around the protection. The rest of the time became less and less.  When there was only 2 minutes left, I suddenly found that, on the table there was a transparent bag which was not used. I picked it up, and looked at the members. Someone said: "Quickly put the egg into the bag! And blow gas into the bag!" A member put the egg into the bag at once, and blew the bag until it was very big. We all felt very proud of ourselves. The teachers passed by and were very satisfied. I felt so happy.

    不一会儿,时间到了。老师带领着同学们来到了室外,一个栏杆边,可以把鸡蛋从高空扔下去的地方。地上有一个记号,鸡蛋落下后,离目标最近的组优先胜利。到了我们组的时候,只见像气球一样的防护层毫发无损地落到了地面上。就在我们高兴的时候,令人惊讶的一幕发上了。鸡蛋落地后,由于保护层的弹性,又弹了起来,滚到了“千里之外”。我们都惊呆了,一句话都说不出来。

      After a while, time was up. The teacher led us outside, and the eggs could be thrown down from there . There was a mark on the ground, and the egg which was the closest to the mark would win. When it was our turn, our protection outside the egg didn’t break at all when it fell onto the ground. As we were all very surprised, something happened. The egg rolled away because the protection was too bouncy. We were shocked.

      结果,因为我们组的鸡蛋离目标太远了,没有取得最终的胜利。虽然我们组确实有很好的防护措施,可我们却忽略了另一个重要的要求。看来以后做什么事都要考虑周全啊。

    As last, our group didn’t win because our egg was too far from the goal. Although our group did have very good protections,we ignored another important requirement.In the future, before doing everything, we should think about it carefully.

      在这十四天里,我们还参观了很多所大学,多伦多,滑铁卢,UBC..每所学校给人的感觉都不同。有的古老,有的优美,有的现代化,但是无一不让人震撼。他们让我立下了人生的目标,并使我有了努力的动力。这一次夏令营大学之旅,我受益匪浅。

    During these 14 days, we also visited many other universities, such as The University of Toronto, The University of Waterloo, UBC, and so on. Every school gives different feeling to me. Some are old, some are beautiful, some are modern, but they are all perfect. They made me set my goal, and work hard. I have learned a lot in this summer camp of universities.                    .
