       尽管美国的历史没有中国那么悠久,但是美国文化中还是有一些很独特的方面,虽然很少有外国人愿意来探索。许多我认识的中国人,他们主要专心于美国的学校教育而不是美国本身。他们的主要目的是得到很好的分数,最后得到一份好工作,几年后他们可能选择回中国。美国少数民族的历史,包括文化,音乐,舞蹈,艺术,时尚,食物,电影和流行文化等,是理解美国和美国文化的很重要的方面。但是,学习一种文化不需要通过等级考试。遇到一个不仅和你有相同的音乐兴趣,而且可以理解美国文化的人是很有意思的。通过看电影,认识不同的人,保持开放的思维,这些学生学到了更多关于美国的东西。而且他们的英语甚至比美国同学的英语还好。
Though the history of America is not as long as that of China, the American culture still has its distinctive features. However, few foreigners would like to explore them. I know many Chinese who are more interested in the education system of America than the country itself. Their goal is to get a good score and then a good job, and probably choose to return to China in a few years. The history of the minority groups in America including their culture, music, dance, art, fashion, foods, films, pop culture, etc., is actually an important part to understand America and its culture. However, learning about a culture doesn’t require a person to pass certain examination. It’s still fun to meet someone who shares the same interest in music with you and happens to understands American culture as well. Chinese students can learn more about America by watching its movies and getting to know different people by keeping an open mind. In this way their English can become even better than their American classmates.
       我经常对美国中学生讲我的经历。我希望他们可以学习中国的现代历史,电视节目、电影,当然还有古代历史。这样,学生们就能够更好地理解具有全球影响力的中国文化和语言,并且可以在生活中得到优势,更加全面地看待世界。学习中文打开了我的新世界,这是一个我从没有意识到的新世界。对于那些对外面世界有兴趣而且希望多学习的朋友们,我鼓励你们多读书,多看杂志、电视,更重要的是多多认识新朋友!
I always talk about my experience with middle school students in America. I hope they can learn something about the modern Chinese history, its movies and TV, of course, and its ancient history. By doing so, they can better understand this globally influential country with its language and culture, and gain some advantages in life by viewing the world from a comprehensive perspective. Learning Chinese has opened a new world for me, a world which I have never realized before. For those who are interested in the outside world and wish to know more, I encourage them to read more and watch more local TV programs, most importantly, to make more friends.
