重阳节是我国重要的传统节日之一,为了让外籍教师们更好地了解中国优秀传统文化,感受重阳佳节气氛,国际合作与交流处于2020年10月25日,即重阳节当天,组织了外籍教师传统文化体验活动。

来自美国、韩国、巴基斯坦等8个国家的9位外籍专家及其家属参加了此次活动。本次文化体验活动共安排了三个主要项目,分别为郊野采摘项目、博物馆参观以与观影活动。在上午的采摘活动中,外教们体验了自己亲自动手在大棚里新鲜的蔬菜,在果林间穿梭寻找最满意的红果、苹果,或是在田野边采集一束野菊花。亲近自然,采集生态蔬果的经历,让许多外教欣喜不已。来自贝宁的外教马福亚表示,蔬菜采摘的环节让他感觉很惊喜,能够亲自动手采摘这些绿叶蔬菜,让他想起了自己的快乐童年。

在天津博物馆参观“人民至上——天津市抗击新冠肺炎疫情纪实展”的过程中,按照纪实展览的顺序,外教们认真参观了全市抗击新冠肺炎疫情的壮举。一份份详实的数据、一张张真实的实物、一张张鲜活的照片记录下了无数医护人员、一线工作者、志愿者前赴后继、无私无畏的动人事迹,让参观外教们动容。

在观影环节,外教们一起观看了电影《掬水月在手》,观影后,外教们纷纷表示电影中的诗词、文物、音乐之美,让人赏心悦目,一生坎坷坚韧仍不渝追寻初心的叶嘉莹老师也很是值得敬佩。受电影启发,外教Carlton表示将会在自己的课堂上组织学生进一步讨论叶嘉莹的诗词。

本次活动不仅让外教们感受到了重阳佳节秋游传统带来的快乐,也为外教们提供了了解中华民族之坚韧、诗词文化之博大精深的机会。充实的活动内容安排,得到了外教们的一致肯定,外教们纷纷表示期待下一次继续参与交流处举办的系列活动。

外教Ann:

I loved the cultural  'day out'. For one thing it was special to get out of the city into the natural environment of the farm. We picked our own vegetables and fruit and enjoyed the weather - clear skies, warm sunshine, clean air. It was perfect. We had lunch at a wonderful restaurant which took us back to the 1900s and the day continued with a visit to an exhibition about the battle against Covid 19, finishing up with a screening of a beautiful documentary film about the famous poet Professor Yeh Chia Ying. Altogether a special day I won't forget.

外教Mafoya:

It was EXCELLENT.  I really enjoy this experience and am ready to do it again if given the opportunity.

外教Shakeel:

First of all, I would like to thank the Nankai University International Office for organizing a cultural activity for International staff. It was an adequately managed whole-day activity where we enjoyed and learned something about Chinese customs.

We visited the Tianjin museum for the theme exhibition, namely “People’s Warfare against the Epidemic,” to pay tribute to health professionals and learn about Chinese people’s efforts for COVID-19 prevention. The exhibition explained how the Chinese and Tianjin people overcome this challenging situation with determined and disciplined manners. It also displayed how Tianjin health professionals and nursing staff helped, contributed, and provided assistance in most affected epicenter areas in China.

For Chinese culture understanding, International Office also arranged a movie relevant to Chinese classical and modern poetry. That movie/documentary was based on a famous Chinese poet Prof. Yeh’s life experiences and her contribution to Chinese poetry. The movie also included several poetic scripts of Prof. Yeh and briefly discussed various Chinese poets and thinkers' viewpoint. As a scientific researcher, for me, it was the first-ever experience of learning about Chinese poetry.

In the end, once again, I will pay my gratitude to Nankai University International Office teachers for their efforts for such a refined cultural activity.
