从晚上九点才落日到如今下午四点的晚霞,从炎热的夏季步入阴冷的冬天,我来英国都已经两个月了。

初到时的陌生就像还在昨天。刚到阿伯丁那几天,从visa check到学校注册,从签订住房合同到搬进宿舍整理一新,从选课到开会,接触的都是全新的环境,全新的同学和老师。不适应也是有的。去餐厅点菜就像在做说明文阅读,听着浓重的苏格兰口音英语就像在做雅思听力。与在中国不同,这边课程不多,但是每门课都需要在课下自己花时间阅读相关文献资料、温习预习做练习。在一个没有食堂的学校,一日三餐成了头疼的大问题。曾经每天早中晚到食堂就可以吃上可口的饭菜。然而在这里,每天吃着早饭就要思考中午晚上吃什么,在做出艰难决定以后还要去买菜洗菜。毫不夸张的说,出国就是去新东方厨师学校的一次修行。从来没想过我会在这样一个地方学会刮鱼鳞剁排骨,不论是荤的素的,还是西点中餐,不管是红烧清蒸,还是煎炸焗煮,如今已通通不在话下。我切菜握刀的那根手指甚至都已经磨出了厚厚的茧。不适应的日子里,好在有同行的朋友们一起,互相照顾,一起八卦一起聊天,想家了就一起回忆以前在武汉的时光。

早有耳闻苏格兰是一个民风淳朴的地方,事实的确如此。在街上经常会有不认识的人对你微笑,有时候还说着hello how are you寒暄两句。每次去超市,收银员都会笑着给你打招呼,贴心的问你需不需要什么帮助,还会跟你聊上几句今天的见闻。在没有红绿灯的地方过街,司机会停下车示意让行人先走。有一次我和朋友去超市想拿一个购物推车,但是翻遍身上都没有一磅的硬币(在国外推一个购物车需要塞进一磅硬币)。在我们准备放弃的时候,身边走来了一个年迈的奶奶,她笑着掏出一枚一磅硬币问我们需不需要。我们又惊又喜,怀着谢意接受了老奶奶的帮忙。虽然这只是一件不起眼的小事,但是足以温暖一颗游子的心。

很多学弟学妹都会在纠结要不要出国的时候问我的建议,待了两个月以后,我想告诉你们,有机会出国一定要去。这是一次历练,你永远不知道你会在出国以后会有多大的成长与改变。求学的路还有很长,这仅仅是一个开始。



      It has been two months since I arrived in Britain. In the first few days, everything was brand new to all of us. We had to do visa check and registration, and sign housing contract by ourselves, which was very challenging for me since it was the first that I had been so far away from home. Reading menu in the restaurant was like doing reading comprehension of exposition. English with strong Scottish accent was hard to understand. Moreover, we had to cook by ourselves. We did have hard time keeping everything in order and getting used to it, but fortunately, friends were always by our sides.

      Scotland is a place full of love. People may smile at you or even say hi to you when walking in the street. When you finish shopping and pay at cashier, they will have a chat with you which really makes your day.

      Studying abroad is really an exciting experience for us. So don’t hesitate whenever you get a chance. Because you can never imagine what pleasant surprise you can get from it.
