语言文化日 ✦

 Spring Languages Fair 

近期,清华附中国际部八年级的学生们在老师的指导支持下,主导组织了“语言文化日”活动。大家运用已经学习到的法语或西班牙语知识,制作出了内容丰富多样的展板,通过轻松有趣的互动游戏,向七年级同学们介绍多元的文化风情,为他们接下来的语言选修课提供参考。


Recently, THIS 8th-grade students, with the support of their French and Spanish teachers, hosted this year’s Spring World Languages Fair. These students applied what they had learned in class to create a variety of posters and fun, interactive games to introduce French and Spanish to the 7th graders. The aim for this event was to ignite interest and curiosity for these world languages as students are beginning to look ahead to next school year’s program of study.



中文、英语、西班牙语、法语和印地语是世界上使用人数最多的前5种语言。因此,国际部十分重视对日后即将走上世界舞台的国际部学生们的多语种交流能力培养。


Because Chinese, English, Spanish and French are the top 5 most spoken languages around the world (together with Hindi), THIS places great emphasis on developing the multilingual communication skills of our students who will, in future go on to the world stage.


从八年级开始,我校为学生提供法语或西班牙语作为选修课。每年的语言文化日,就是希望同学们能够在文化”初体验”中,找到学习另一门外语的兴趣,了解学习语言不仅仅是学习单词和语法,更重要的是了解和熟悉属于这种语言的文化和风土人情,这样才能够在掌握后真正运用在交流中。


Foreign Languages (French and Spanish) are a few of many electives THIS offers to high school students. With this “first taste” of these foreign languages, we hope to encourage students to develop an interest in learning a foreign language and to understand that learning a language is not only about learning words and grammar, but also about understanding and familiarizing with cultures and customs.





Mr.Christophe Eloy 

法语老师 / French teacher


French grammar is way more complex than English or Chinese, and the pronunciation is very different. Despite these challenges, the students are very lively in French class. It was interesting to see them become the teachers at the fair. Whether they were preparing trivia, a game, or a short French class, they reflected on what they have learned and what they can let others discover easily in 5 minutes. They put a lot of effort into making their stations fun, and I think the fair was quite successful.


法语的语法比英语或中文都更复杂些,而且发音也很不同。尽管有这些挑战,我们的学生在法语课上依然非常积极主动地去学习。看到他们成为“小老师”,是一件很趣且值得骄傲的事。无论是准备一个小游戏,还是准备一段简短的法语课,这都是他们在反思自己所学,同时转化和运用知识的过程。我很高兴看到,为了让每个展示站点变得有趣,同学们都投入了大量精力,认真对待。





Ms. Yolanda Talero

西班牙语老师 /  Spanish Teacher


Learning a third language is a challenge for our students because of the grammatical differences between Chinese and English. However, they come to class eager to learn the language and the different cultures the 21 Spanish- speaking countries share. They took the Fair activity very seriously. They did a lot of research and came up with the design of beautiful posters and videos and felt very proud of teaching the seventh graders what they have learned so far about the language.


由于中文和英文在语法上的差异,学习第三种语言对我们的学生来说是一个挑战。然而,他们在课堂中充分展现了对西班牙语——这门21个国家都在使用的语言的学习热情和渴望。为了这次展示,他们做了大量的研究,设计制作了精美的海报和视频。大家都为能够向七年级学生讲述他们目前所学到的语言知识而感到非常自豪。

七年级的学生们积极参与到互动学习中,通过丰富多彩的展示,了解了许多关于法语和西班牙语国家美食和人文方面有趣的知识,感受到了浓浓的多元文化氛围,同时也萌发了学习另外一门外语的兴趣。


The seventh graders participated actively in the languages fair. They learned a lot of interesting knowledge about the cuisine and humanity of the French and Spanish speaking countries through the presentations, feeling the strong multicultural atmosphere and getting the interest in learning another foreign language.







学习一门外语绝非易事,需要学生们在课堂内外都做出努力。我们生活在一个广阔的、具有丰富历史的多元文化世界中,无论是去世界各地旅行还是生活,了解并尊重当地的文化都是至关重要的。这次“语言文化日”通过充分调动学生们的视觉、听觉、味觉,让大家初步地了解了法语和西班牙语,更重要的是感受到了语言背后不同文化的瑰丽。


Learning a foreign language is never easy. It requires effort inside and outside of the classroom. Because we live in a multicultural world, it is essential to know about various cultures as well as build effective communication skills wherever you live or might travel. The World Languages Fair was a great opportunity for the students to learn about French and Spanish and, more importantly, to experience the beauty of the different cultures behind the languages by engaging their senses of sight, sound and taste.
