My Fulbright Year at Ursinus College, Pennsylvania

Written by Ying-Jeng Wang 王瓔錚 Tuesday, 09 October 2018 11:53
       It was a great privilege and honor to be selected as a Fulbright Language Teaching Assistant (FLTA) in 2014. As I looked back on my Fulbright experience at Ursinus College four years later, I could see more clearly the many blessings that I received throughout my ten-month stay in Collegeville, Pennsylvania. It is impossible to detail every aspect of the grant experience in one single reflection, but three aspects figured prominently during the grant year: cultural exchange, academic study, and community outreach and travels.        One of the richest experiences as an FLTA is the exchange of cultures with my students and other FLTAs through sharing and learning. In terms of sharing, I had numerous occasions in my weekly conversation class to share Chinese cultures with my students – Chinese tongue twisters, shadow puppetry, cuisines, films and TV shows, poems, just to name a few.…

華語教學夢 - FLTA經驗

  華語教學夢 我在公立學校擔任英語教師,一直以來,都夢想著到海外教華語。當我看到傅爾布萊特學術交流基金會開放「教師赴美進修暨協助華語教學獎助計畫」時便立刻報考,也順利取得資格,成為台灣第一批傅爾布萊特華語助教。 赴美前,我參加了華語教學培訓,當時的我對新生活充滿期待。除了即將實現我在美國大學教華語的夢想,還修習免費課程,結交美國的朋友。

見山是山,見水是水

  如同十個月前離開的那天,我喝著巷口甘醇的古早味紅茶,迎面而來的不是克里夫蘭仍然微涼的冷風,而是濕黏厚重的空氣緊貼在皮膚上,耳邊傳來閩南語與國語夾雜的日常,於是清楚地知道,我到家了。

FLTA 筆記

  假期裡的某一天,旅行在伸手不見五指的漆黑洞穴裡,地下水流緩緩自腳下滑過,洞穴外是接近三十度的高溫,洞穴裡長年流淌的冰涼地下水,卻讓已經穿著防寒衣的我們禁不住打了一個冷顫。看不見天光,抬頭,頭頂的探照燈冷不防與洞裡的蝙輻四目相對,反射出詭異的幽幽紅光 ,無聲地抱怨這群不速之客的無故打擾。聽不見街道上奔馳的汽車呼嘯、也不聞市井小販的沿街吆喝,「嗒…」一滴水自冰涼的洞壁落下,就打破了一室的悄然寂靜。

美國體驗

       申請傅爾布萊特華語教學獎助計畫之前,我做了好一陣子的線上華語教學,從各國學生的學習反應、造句、作文,能聽聞各地的奇聞軼事,能領會與語言的妙處。有次我讓學生用手勢比出我所說的中文動詞,我說:「吃。」學生同時作勢拿叉子,只有我一個人伸出食指和中指作勢拿筷子扒飯。華語教學的樂趣讓我期待著這次到美國大學教華語,順道體驗與我迥異的生活和文化。

風城印象

         在八月中前往美國之前,我待在終年受海風吹拂的臺灣島上二十餘年。從大學入學到研究所畢業後的那段期間,我住在臺北城裡,花了三分之一的人生摸索與搏鬥。和生活搏鬥,也和自己。有時候覺得已經知道自己要的是什麼,但是困惑總是一而再再而三地回來。所以無論何時,我總是在包包裡放著一把傘。既然不知道什麼時候放晴,什麼時候會下雨,那麼確保能在雨滴落下時打傘撐著,總是不那麼狼狽一些。
