A1&A2班

     

3月22日下午,华中科技大学汉语学习班A1和A2班的20多名国际学生在韵苑足球场共同参加跳绳和踢毽的友谊比赛。在轻松愉悦的氛围中,国际学生们共同感受中国古人的娱乐方式。

这次友谊比赛主要分为三个环节。首先两个班的老师在教室里对中国传统的娱乐方式—跳绳和踢毽子做了一个简短的介绍,主要讲解了它们的起源、对身体的好处以及我们比赛的形式和规则。20分钟过后,我们有序地组织学生到韵苑足球场。清点完人数后,我们将学生分为了五组,同时给他们8分钟左右的时间进行赛前热身。随即跳绳比赛就正式开始了。首先是每位小组各派一位同学,轮流来跳绳,此活动是想让每位同学都能参与其中。在1分钟这个有限的时间内,大家都拼劲了全力,唯恐落在了其他组的后面,比赛现场相当激烈。第一轮单人比赛全部结束后,大家休息了五分钟,我们接着进行第二轮双人跳绳比赛。可能是大家有各自的文化差异,一开始不太愿意两个人面对面一起跳绳,但是经过老师和小组内部成员协商讨论后,每组派出了两位同学出来应战。第二轮比赛主要是锻炼学生之间的配合与协调能力,每一组的代表们都有自己的方法,比如说“1.2.3开始”、“眼神的交流”“扯着对方的衣角”等等,大家都乐在其中。第三个环节就是一组人围成一个圆圈,用踢的方式将毽子传给下一个同学,依次进行。这轮游戏也是为了加强小组之间的协调能力以及各成员之间的配合能力。有的小组成员可能是第一次见面,可能虽然在一个班,但是彼此之间不太熟悉,但是通过这轮游戏,大家也慢慢熟知起来,对自己的队友有了更多的了解,同时也给予他们更多的耐心,展现了组员之间的友情。

尽管是第一次开展文化活动,经验不是特别足,对学生在游戏中的表现没有很好地把握。但值得庆幸的是,每位同学都玩得很开心。在欢乐的游戏中,我们始终遵循着“游戏第一,比赛第二”的原则,在比赛中体验古人娱乐、竞技方式,同时也加深了他们对中国传统文化的了解与认识。(中英文编辑:杜芷仪&彭亚婷)

On the afternoon of March 22, 2018, more than 20 international students from class A1 and class A2 took part in the friendship competition of skipping rope and kicking shuttlecock together in Yun Yuan football field.

This cultural activity is divided into three parts. First, two classes of teacher made a brief introduction for Chinese traditional form of entertainment, rope skipping and shuttlecock kicking, mainly explained the origin of them, the benefits to the body and the forms and rules of the game. Twenty minutes later, we organized the students to the football field in order. After counting numbers, we divided the students into five groups and gave them eight minutes to warm up before the game. Then the rope skipping race is started formally. First of all, each group chose one student to jump rope in turn, for which everyone could participate in this activity. In the limited time of one minute, everyone has tried their best in order not to fall behind the other groups, and the competition is fierce. After the first round of singles play, we had a five-minute break, and we went on to play the double jump in the second round. It is possible that there is a difference in culture. At first two people were reluctant to jump rope together face to face, but they came out to fight each group after a discussion between the teachers and the members of the group. The second game, mainly is to exercise the student’s cooperation and coordination. The representatives of each other have their own methods, such as “starting after saying 1,2,3”,”making eye contact”, ”tearing partner’s skirts” and so on. Everyone all enjoy it. The third part is a group of people forming a circle, kicking the shuttlecock to the next student, in turn. This activity is also designed to strengthen coordination among groups and the ability to cooperate among members. Some members of one group may meet for the first time. The others are in a class, but are not familiar with each other. However, by this round of games, they are more aware of their teammates as well as giving them more patience, showing friendship among the group members.

Although it is the first time for us to carry out cultural activities, our experience is too deficient to prospect the students’ performance in the activity. But fortunately, everyone had a good time. In the joy of the game, we always followed the principle of "the game first, competition second". In the game we experience the ancient people’s entertainment and competitive ways, but also deepen their understanding and awareness of Chinese traditional culture.
