Daniel’s Speech at Julong School

Dear principle Yu,Dear teacher and classmates:

Good morning!

I am DANIEL, from UK thousands of miles away. As theChinese saying goes: “It is better to travel ten thousand miles than toread ten thousand books.”? so when Igraduated from University of West of England, I came to China, the world’soldest country.

Different life, different cultures, differentlanguages, very special experience, must be the most valuable wealth in my life

My life in China is very different to my life in theUK. I think the 3 biggest differences are – the Chinese people, the food andthe weather. The Chinese people are very friendly and warm-heartedhard-working. In China, people treat foreigners with lots of respect andhappiness. That is why I am very happy to be here in Julong, China. My memoryof Chinese people will be very happy.

When I first came to China I had a very difficult timeeating Chinese food. I found the food to be very spicy and had lots of oil. ButI have now been in China for 3 years and I really love Chinese food. It’s myfavourite food. In England, we very rarely eat rice but we eat lots of meat –like chicken and fish. But sometimes I miss the beautiful food that my Mumcooks at home in the UK!

In my hometown, it rains nearly every day! It is oftenvery cold and very windy. I really don’t like the weather. But in China I thinkthere is lots of sunshine and I can wear shorts and tshirts a lot! In the UK, Iusually need to wear a coat and and a hat. Even in the winter in China it isstill not very cold. In the winter in the UK, it is so cold and there is lotsof snow. I prefer the weather in China but I don’t like the thphoons.

I am very happy to be a teacher in Julong because Ithink it is a very special school. The principal is very thoughtful,Theteachers and the students are very hard working and I love teaching here. Ihope to be here for a long time and watch all the students grow up and watchthem be successful young adults.

I use the words of Shakespeare to end the speechtoday: The time of life is short ;o spend that shortness basely,it would be toolong .

Thank you everyone!Have good day!

 

尊敬的余校长,亲爱的老师同学们:

大家早上好!

我是丹尼尔,来自千里之外的英国。中国有句谚语:读万卷书不如行万里路.所以,我从西英格兰大学毕业后,就来到了世界上历史最悠久的国家——中国。不同的生活,不同的文化,不同的语言,特别的经历,一定可以成为我这辈子里最珍贵的财富。

我在中国的生活与英国的生活是非常不同。我认为最大的区别是:中国人民,中国美食和天气。

中国人民非常友好,他们都非常努力地对待工作。在中国,人们对待外国人特别尊重,并传递着幸福感。这就是为什么我很高兴来到中国,来到聚龙,我对中国人民的印象是非常好的。

当我第一次来中国时,我对于每天吃中国菜感到很苦恼,因为我发现食物很辣,放很多油。但我待在中国已经3年了,现在我真的很喜欢中国菜,中国美食我最喜欢的食物。在英国,我们很少吃米饭,我们吃了很多肉,比如鸡肉和鱼。虽然中国美食很好,但有时我想念的味道是——我的妈妈在家里做的西餐。

在我的家乡,几乎每天下雨!它通常很冷,风很大。我真的不喜欢家乡的天气。但在中国,我认为这里有很多阳光,我可以经常穿着短裤和T恤!在英国,我通常都要裹一件外套和戴一顶帽子。在泉州,即使冬天,它仍然不是很冷。冬天的英国,寒冷无比,会下很大很厚的雪。对比之下,我实在喜欢中国的天气,但是台风是个例外。

我非常荣幸地在聚龙当老师,因为我认为这是一个非常特殊的学校,老师和学生都非常努力地对待工作和学习,我喜欢在这里教学,我非常希望能够长久地在这里工作,看着所有的学生长大,看着他们成为成功的年轻人。

我用莎士比亚的一句话结束今天的演讲:人生苦短,若虚度年华,则短暂的人生就太长了.

谢谢!
