一位孟加拉国留学生的太极梦_英语新闻

As a student from Bangladesh who is studying for his master’s degree at Shangdong University, I have been a witness of sorts to Chinese culture, and as such am really interested to learn the Chinese language and more about the country. I have especially noticed people here are so hard-working and civilized. My journey here was well-arranged and convenient. After watching the martial arts taichi in the opening ceremony, my pursuit to learn kung fu and taiji increased tenfold.

作为从孟加拉国到中国山东大学来读书的一名研究生,我是丰富多彩的中国文化的见证人,因此也让我对汉语和中国产生了浓厚的兴趣。特别是,我发现中国人十分勤劳,非常文明。我在中国的游历被安排的很好,很方便。在入学开学典礼上看到了非常精彩的太极武术表演后,我渴望学习中国功夫和太极拳的念头增长了10倍。

Since childhood, I have seen amazing action movies starring Bruce Lee, Jackie Chen and Jet Li, and I was always curious to learn the martial arts. Where there is China, there is kung fu, at least in my mind. Once I arrived in China, it was my dream to learn taichi and kung fu and master the techniques of martial arts. I chose taichi as an additional course to my other courses.

我打小就看过李小龙、成龙和李连杰等功夫巨星的电影,一直渴望学习中国功夫。我甚至认为,有中国人的地方,就有中国功夫。来到中国后,我更是对太极拳和功夫魂牵梦绕,希望能掌握武术的技艺。因此,我把太极拳作为我的选修课程。

After my arrival on campus, I got up early in morning, as the jet lag had not yet worn off. When I went for a walk on the first day, I saw a number of older people practicing taichi slowly in tandem. I stopped and watched their movements closely. It fascinated me, and the very next day at registration time, I rushed to the admin office to choose taichi as my additional course. Within the next couple of days, I visited our campus and a few scenic spots in Jinan city. The traditional touch in the buildings is fantastic. It was amazing to see the Baotu Springs, Daming Lake and explore a number of beautiful places in Jinan and all over China.

入学第一天,虽然时差的影响还未完全消退,我仍起的很早。第一天晨跑,我看到一群老年人正一前一后地慢慢打太极,我走上前仔细观察他们的动作,真的太有意思了。第二天是新生注册登记的日子,我赶紧跑到行政办公室,把太极拳填在了选修课的一栏。接下来的几天里,我参观了校园,游览了济南市几处旅游景点。古色古香的建筑,神奇的趵突泉,美丽的大明湖……济南、中国的那么多美景让我如痴如醉。

The following week I was on the grounds early in the morning with my classmates and our teacher was ready to tell us about the taichi. Different from the other courses I chose, The taichi class is practical work, where you can learn and enjoy at the same time. In the lecture he told us that taichi is practiced for its health benefits. I was surprised to learn that the main concept behind it is defense training. The movement of the body is related to the yin and yang forces which are part of the taiji philosophy.

第二周一大早,我便和同学们来到操场等待第一堂太极拳课的开始,老师也作好了准备。这堂课与我选的其他课程不同之处在于,学生要时刻动手实践,学习与快乐交织。老师告诉我们,太极拳的目的在于强身健体,其背后的理念是训练防守,这实在让我意外。身体的移动与阴阳之力相协调,这也是太极拳的哲学之一。

Each night of the six–day-long extensive practice, I was excited to explore new things the next morning. Every day before training in the morning, I woke up early and headed to the ground straightaway. The main principles that the teacher taught us were attitude, discipline and balance. I was taking every bit of the training seriously and trying to maintain my balance, which was a difficult job.

在六天的大量训练里,我每晚都会对第二天的新知识激动不已,因此,我会在第二天训练开始前起个大早,直奔操场。老师教导我们的主要原则是态度、纪律和平衡。我认真对待每一堂训练课,努力保持平衡,着实不易。

As a master degree student and social worker, I want to bring positive change to people’s lives, especially woman and children. I also want to improve the living standards of Bangladesh by learning from Chinese welfare activities in this sector. I hope to work for women and children’s development with the Chinese and Bangladeshi governments.

作为研究生和社工,我希望给人们,特别是妇女和儿童的生活带来正能量。同时,我也希望通过学习中国的福利体系,提高孟加拉国的生活水平,与中孟两国政府一起,促进女性和儿童的发展。

No dream is too small, and it is not impossible to fulfill our dreams, no matter how difficult they are. Our attitude, our willingness and our actions make the impossible become possible. Starting at Shandong University and making a new start in my professional career, I will strive to bring a positive change in society.

梦想无大小,只要不畏艰难,梦想就都可以实现。态度决定一切,意志决定成败,行动决定未来。山东大学是我梦想的起点,是我职业生涯的起点,从这里出发,我将为社会带来积极的影响而不懈努力。
