圣大孔院组织美国教育学者访问中国

2015年12月28日,美国圣地亚哥州立大学孔子学院项目经理孟宪安带领15名教育学者访问中国。来访学者中包括圣地亚哥市联合学区教育理事会主席Michael McQuary博士,以及来自圣地亚哥郡内各学区的校长,国际文凭认可课程老师等。

行程的第一站是中国首都北京,停留期间他们受到了孔子学院总部/国家汉办北美大洋洲司项目协调人张勇先生和发展规划处处长霍福海先生的热情欢迎。霍先生为大家详细说明了孔子学院总部(汉办),全球各孔子学院,和孔子课堂的组织结构和发展愿景,让人印象深刻。之后,张勇先生带领大家参观了中国文化体验中心。通过亲身尝试和互相交流,在场的所有人都为博大精深的中国文物感到震撼。

之后在北京的其它旅游景点同样让人流连忘返,从雄伟的长城,故宫,天安门广场,到精美的中国国家博物馆,每一处都让大家赞美不已。

行程的第二站是厦门。厦门大学作为圣地亚哥州立大学孔子学院的合作伙伴,一向积极支持并协助发展许多圣大孔院的教育项目。厦大汉语国际推广南方基地/孔子学院办公室主任毛通文热情接待了来访的学者。在参加各个会议和研讨之前,大家参观了美丽的厦门大学翔安新校区。厦门大学副校长詹心丽出席并主持了欢送仪式和送别晚宴。

2016年1月6日,学者代表们结束了为期10天的中国之旅,依依不舍的离开了厦门。此次旅行让大家对中国有了更多的认识和赞赏。在了解了中国的风土人情之后,访问学者们纷纷觉得这个曾经是那么遥远陌生的国家,却和自己的故土如此相似。这些在中国的美好回忆和难忘时刻,将是他们珍藏永远的无价之宝。

On December 28, 2015, 15 U.S. Educators, led by Project Manager, Anne Chu, of Confucius Institute at San Diego State University, left on their journey to China. Among the delegates, there were principals from various school districts in San Diego County, IB teachers and President of the Board, San Diego Unified School District, Dr. Michael McQuary. 

Their first stop was Beijing. During their stay in the capital of China, they were greeted warmly by Mr. Yong Zhang, Program Coordinator of the Department of Americas and Oceania Countries and Regions, and Fu Hai Huo, Director of Development and Planning Department when they visited Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban. Mr. Huo gave a detailed presentation on the structure and missions of Confucius Institute Headquarters/Hanban, Confucius Institutes around the globe and Confucius Classrooms. Many delegates were quite impressed with the information they received. Later, Mr. Zhang led the group on a tour of the Chinese cultural Exploratorium Center; again, the visitors were in awe by the artifacts rich in Chinese culture, and the hands-on interactions they engaged in. 

Other must-see sites in Beijing, from the Great Wall, the Forbidden City, Tiananmen Square, to the National Museum of China brought more excitement remarks from everyone. 

The delegation group visited Xiamen City as their 2nd stop in China. Xiamen University has been a dedicated supportive partner in many education programs to CI/SDSU. Director Tong Wen Mao of the Southern Base of Confucius Institute Headquarters/ Office of Confucius Institute Affairs greeted the guests upon their arrival. They were guided for a tour at the new Xianan campus before attending a series of lectures and forum. President Xinli Zhan hosted the closing ceremony and farewell banquet. 

These delegates left China after a 10 day tour  on January 06, 2016 from Xiamen with a new recognition and admiration for China, a country so foreign to them before their arrival, yet so similar to their own homeland after they gained knowledge of the culture and people. Their memories full of amazing experiences of Chinese culture will be cherished forever.
