    4.老師及學生感想

    陳進華校長

      I still remembered that one of my missions I had planned to implement in LTY was to hold an oversea excursion. The country I planned to go to must fit my first criteria of providing opportunities for my students to practise their English in an authentic situation, as English is the major language for people to communicate with. Also, I did not want to spend too much time on the transportation. Although going to England or USA would be so good, students would have be suffered on the long flight for over 12 hours. I also hoped our students would not get sick easily in the cold weather or they would not have anything to fit for their appetite.

      In September, 2018, the school issued a circular as a survey to let students and parents choose where they wanted to go. Their options were New Zealand, Australia and Singapore. Finally, the latter one was the most popular one. Then we started the procedure to organize this study tour.

      On 12th - 16th March, 2019, 3 teachers, 39 students and I set off on our journey. We were so excited for this study tour as there were so many new things for our kids and we also had to make sure of their safety. Fortunately, everything was so smooth and our students were so good and they were eager to learn. They were so attentive during the lesson in the International School even though the content was so difficult for them. They tried to use English to talk to the students at recess. Finally, they took pictures with each other and they exchanged the contact number to keep in touch with them.

      I believe that English is the own media for them to communicate with. Besides, students had a lot of chances to practise their English in different authentic contexts such as buying food in the food courts, and listening and answering questions in different museums or learning centres. Of course, their favourite activity was buying souvenirs. They could not stop searching for what they wanted to. They tried to bargain with the shop-keepers. It was such an interesting moment to see them bargaining with other people in English. They also needed to speak in English to order the food on the plane and they even asked the flight attendants how to play the TV games.

      I am so happy to see the students can use English in their daily lives. I wished them not just to enjoy what they did on the trip but to learn how to use English to do what they need to or want to. This was therefore a successful trip and I will try to organize this kind of trip in every single academic year. I wish for all our students to have a chance to learn English in an authentic situation and broaden their horizon.

      我很高興能夠帶領學生參加2019年新加坡英語遊學團。雖然是次行程只有五天, 學生卻獲益良多, 因為同學們可以親身到訪新加坡不同的地方,了解當地的歷史 、文化及經濟社會發展。在眾多的旅遊景點中,令我印象最深刻的可算是帶領學生到輔仁國際學校進行交流及參觀水資源中心。

      新加坡是一個多元種族及文化的國家,因此學校的學生也不是單一種族。在輔仁國際學校裡的學生有中國人 、印度人及馬來西亞人等,他們和諧及主動的學習氣氛是香港學生的學習榜樣。

      另外,參觀水資源中心也令同學了解新加坡如何在水資源不足的情況下發展再生水,學生可從中反思香港在開發資源時可借鏡的地方。總括而言, 這次交流團富有學習意義 ,令學生增廣見聞。

      我有幸參與這次英語遊學團,與學生一同到新加坡學習,獲益良多。我們體驗當地文化和學習情況,運用英語溝通,並遊覽當地名勝,增廣見聞。

      我十分欣賞學生積極學習的態度,他們在國際學校上課的情況令我尤為深刻。雖然以英語授課的初中課程對他們一班高小生顯得艱深難明,卻無阻他們認真學習。他們在課堂專心摘寫筆記,有的更主動回答老師提問。小休時,他們向當地的「大哥哥,大姐姐」求教,了解當地的生活和學習情況,還成為朋友。新加坡為他們提供了一個真實的英語環境,不論點菜或是展館的互動展品、英語導賞和答問,學生均有大量聆聽和使用英語對話的機會。他們在旅程中努力以英語交談,有些更每天以英文寫作旅行日誌。

      透過參觀多個重要展覽館、民族文化區和野生動物園,我們上了一連串密集而有趣的常識課。這令我們增進科學知識,亦了解當地歷史文化和發展規劃。至於當地導遊的講解和分享則讓我們借鏡獅城,反思香港的現況。此行讓我們有機會多運用英語,放眼世界。

      是次新加坡交流團為同學提供了一個學習英語的機會。新加坡和香港有很多頗相似的地方。

      媒體經常會將香港和新加坡作比較,不同研究和調查均指新加坡在多方面甚至超越香港,故是次教流團除了提供學習英文的機會,還讓學生透過比較兩地相似和不同的地方,加強學生國際視野。

      此外,學生在交流團沒有家長在旁提供照顧,更能培養他們的自理能力。

      參加了新加坡英語交流團令我獲益良多。我不但能夠有機會接觸新加坡英文,也有機會與新加坡當地學生進行交流,了解當地的文化。我希望可以再一次到訪新加坡,增廣見聞。

      我很高興能夠入選新加坡英語遊學團。在這些旅程中,我學會了自律及提升了我的自我管理能力。在校長及老師的帶領下,我學會了守時,負責任及尊重別人的重要性。

      在這次旅程中,我發現了新加坡英語的獨特性。例如新加坡英文的發音及文法都與傳統英式英語有差異。我認識到英語的多樣性。我希望學校日後可以多舉辦遊學團,令我們增廣見聞。
