珍妮
K:嗨,珍妮,你以前去过其他国家吗?
J:我去过日本。
K:好的。你觉得加拿大怎么样?
J:那里环境很好,那里的人们很有礼貌,也比我们更悠闲。
K:听起来不错。住在你的寄宿家庭你习惯吗?
J:是的,我在寄宿家庭感觉很好。我寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈喜欢电影。每天们都会聚在一起看电影。我和他们的孩子一起又看了《哈利波特》的电影。虽然我以前看过几次,但我喜欢和他们一起看电影。最让我感动的是,寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈特意注册了微信账号来与我聊天。
K:他们太好了。你在“寄宿家庭日”做了什么特别的事吗?
J:我们去他们的祖父母家吃了一顿丰盛的家庭晚餐。祖父母的房子很大,是一座三层的别墅。后院旁还有一个湖。我们在湖上航行,玩得很愉快。
K:很好! 这是一个快乐的寄宿家庭日。
J:我觉得寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈非常尊重我们的隐私。他们进我们房间之前都会敲门。
新体验
许多孩子喜欢加拿大夏令营的寄宿家庭。他们有机会与一个加拿大家庭真正住上一周,学习他们的家庭规则,与他们一起吃饭,并在周末庆祝“寄宿家庭日”。珍妮有一个很好的机会真正登船游湖,然后回到他们的祖父母的别墅度过一天中余下的时间。她用微信给同学们发了很多很酷的照片,她也把许美好的回忆带回了家。


雨果
K:这次参加夏令营你上了很多课。你最喜欢的课是什么?
H:我喜欢射箭和钓鱼。
K:你在射箭课上射得很好,是吗?
H:还行。但是,我发现很难把握弓的角度。
K:我相信你练得很好。
H:实际上我的射箭成绩在全班排名第二,只比最高分少一分。
K:哇,你太棒了!钓鱼课怎么样?
H:湖里有许多鱼,我们可以很容易钓到。这让我们很有成就感。
K:我明白了。这次参加夏令营你有丢过什么东西吗?你是怎么收拾行李的?
H:不,我什么也没丢,我把自己的东西保管得很好。我喜欢打包行李。对我来说,收拾行李箱是小菜一碟。

坚韧
雨果总能找到参到我们的每一项活动中的方式,而且排名经常很靠前。坚韧是加拿大精神之一,在整个营地里,雨果真的很有一个战士的精神,他表现出了与同学们一起出国旅行时的兴奋,并且做好了充足准备,尽管他以前从未出过国。雨果是个坚强的孩子,他坚韧的精神是加拿大价值体系的有力反映。

 

杰克
K:嗨,杰克,你以前去过其他国家吗?
J:我去过美国、日本和德国。
K:很酷,你去过这么多国家。你觉得加拿大怎么样?
J:空气很干净,环境很好。而且人们都很好。
K:你觉得你的寄宿家庭怎么样?你习惯了他们的生活方式吗?
J:我们的寄宿家庭有一个很大的房子,有一个大后院。后院里种了一些果树,还有一个充气游泳池。我们寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈在晚饭前会去游泳。
K:听起来很有趣。那你和他们一起游泳吗?
J:是的,我和他们一起游泳了几次。
K:很好。你参加了许多课程,如ESL、犯罪现场分析、射箭、钓鱼等等。你最喜欢的课是什么?
J:射箭和骑行。虽然我的射箭成绩并不理想,但我就是喜欢这门课。我们有两天的自行车骑行时间。我们第一天在平地上骑行,第二天是在山里。我选择了一辆小型自行车。第一天我骑得很快,很顺利,但在山上骑的时候却不怎么好。
思想开放
杰克的老师和寄宿家庭很高兴他能尝试新事物。即使他以前从来没有做过,他也会毫不犹豫地参加了某项活动,或者尝试了一顿新的饭菜,而且喜欢直接投入到事情中去。这种开放性经常出现在旅行者和具有国际心态的人身上。看着杰克在工作和玩耍的时候,你可以看出他真的准备好迎接任何新生或变幻的事务。


泰迪
K:嗨,泰迪,你去过其他国家吗?
T:没有。
K:所以这是你第一次出国。你感觉如何?你觉得加拿大怎么样?
T:那里的空气和街道都很干净。但刚刚抵达的头两天,我有时差综合症,当时感到头晕眼花。
K:哦,那有点糟糕。你习惯寄宿家庭的生活吗?
T:我的寄宿家庭有两个儿子,一个只有两岁,另一个是四岁。他们有一个大房子和一个大后院。我们可以在那里玩蹦床和荡秋千。他们没有宠物。我和我的搭档住在地下室。与我们中国的地下室不同的是,他们的地下室是一个阳光充足的房间,很舒服。
K:哦,真的吗?
T:他们在地下室有一个私家电影院。
K:哇,酷!

我们为学员们设立了一个专门的微信群,鼓励学生们每天在群里发自拍照。当天“自拍比赛”的获胜者第二天不用做家庭作业。泰迪很擅长拍摄与家人日常生活的照片,无论是游泳、看电影,还是在外面玩。

 

Happy开心
K:你好,你以前去过其他国家吗?
H:我去过俄罗斯、韩国、新加坡、马来西亚,我也去了你们2017年的加拿大夏令营。
K:哇,酷!你去过这么多地方。你觉得我们上次的冬令营怎么样?
H:我喜欢。我喜欢滑雪。所以我下次还去你的冬令营。
K:欢迎参加我们即将推出的冬令营。既然你去过两次加拿大,你觉得加拿大怎样?
H:那里空气很干净,环境很好。
K:好的。你觉得你的寄宿家庭怎么样?
H:我寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈都老了,就像我的祖父母一样。我寄宿家庭的爸爸是一个印度人,妈妈是本地人。
K:他们的食物怎么样?你喜欢他们的饮食吗?
H:我的家爸爸擅长做许多美味的食物,如炒饭、汤和其他印度菜。这些食物都是我喜欢的。
K:哇,听起来很好吃。
H:是的,妈妈有时会为我们做披萨。

责任
这是Happy的第二次游学营经历。他非常乐于助人,像一个营地领袖,指导新学生去哪里,怎么做。他也很可靠,因为他知道我们游学营的活动规则,为其他人做了很好的榜样。我期待着在下一次冬令营与他一起滑雪!

 

科拉
K:这次夏令营你上了什么课?
C:浆果采摘、饼干烘焙、自行车骑行和钓鱼。
K:你最喜欢哪门课?为什么?
C:我喜欢烘焙和钓鱼。因为这是我第一次做饼干,我觉得这对我来说是新事物。湖里有许多鱼,我们很容易就能钓到鱼。
K:我明白了,那么这个夏令营最让你印象深刻的是什么?
C:我喜欢加拿大的课程,和我们中国的课程很不一样。在中国,每天我们都要做大量的作业,老师填鸭式地让我们死记硬背。我们缺乏批判性思维。
K:是的,你说得很对。
C:然而在加拿大,老师们可能只是坐在教室前面,鼓励学生提问,他们有很多互动。我喜欢这种学习方式。
K:是的,他们鼓励探究式学习。那么你在参加夏令营后有什么变化吗?
C:是的。我现在很主动地表达我自己的想法。在去年的冬令营里,我都不敢和我的寄宿家庭的家人说话。这一次,我可以流利地与我寄宿家庭的爸爸和妈妈交流。

谦逊
许多学生害怕在教室里畅所欲言,担心自己可能会给出错误答案。然而,在课堂上,科拉很快就接受了加拿大的教育方式,她在不理解的时候会提问,并试图尽可能地模仿老师的例子。在加拿大教育中,承认自己不知道并不是一件坏事,这反而能让教师能在课堂上做得更好,帮助学生更好地理解过程。


琪琪
K:那你最喜欢什么课?为什么?
琪琪:我喜欢射箭和钓鱼。因为我认为射箭可以锻炼我的手臂和眼睛。湖里有许多鱼,我们甚至可以在没有蚯蚓的情况下钓到鱼。
K:哇,酷。
琪琪:我们在不列颠哥伦比亚大学里看到了一些兔子。它们不怕人,非常可爱。我们喂了它们。
K:很好,我们应该保护我们的动物和环境。那么,这个夏令营对你来说最重要的记忆是什么?
琪琪:我觉得自己更独立了,对团队合作更了解了。
K:很好。这次参加夏令营你有丢过什么东西吗?你知道怎么收拾行李吗?
琪琪:没有,我很会收拾行李。我把干净的衣服和脏衣服分开放在行李箱里。
K:很好。你给父母买什么礼物了吗?
琪琪:我买了枫树糖浆和果酱。但我爸妈觉得枫树糖浆太甜了。

琪琪性格坚强,从不害怕尝试任何新事物,她认为一切都有可能会变得有趣。因为她不怕说英语,能结交新朋友,愿意尝试新的活动,这对她的出国游学很有帮助。她是另一个具有加拿大人“坚韧”品质的学生。


Interview Transcripts for Vancouver Camp

Jenny
K:Hi Jenny, have you been to other countries before?
J:I have been to Japan.
K:What do you think of Canada?
J:The people there are very polite and more relaxed than us, and the environment is very good.
K:Were you accustomed to living in your host family?
J:Yes, I felt good in the host family. My host dad and mom love movies. Every day we would get together to watch movies. I watched the movie Harry Potter again with their kids. Although I had watched it a few times before, I enjoy the movie times with them. And what moved me most is that my home dad and mom registered a WeChat account specially to chat with me.
K: Did you do anything special on the “Host Family Day”?
J:We went to their grandparents’ home for a big family dinner. Grandparents’ house is very big, it is a three-storey villa. And there is a lake beside the backyard. We sailed on the lake and had a great time.
K:So, it was a happy Host Family Day?
J:I think my home dad and mom respect our privacy very much. They would knock on the door before they came in our room.

New Experiences
Many kids love the homestay aspect of Canadian camp. They are allowed the chance to actually live with a Canadian family for a week, learning their house rules, eating their daily meals with them, and celebrating a “host family day” on the weekend.  Jenny had the awesome chance to actually go out onto the lake on the family’s boat, and then head back into their grandparent’s villa to hang out for the rest of the day.  She had a lot of cool photos she sent out to our student WeChat, and some great memories to take home with her.

Hugo
K:You had a lot of classes during this camp. What was your favorite class?
H:I liked archery and fishing class.
K:You shoot quite well in the archery class, right?
H:Not bad. Yet I found it difficult to grasp the angle of the bow.
K:I thought you had been doing pretty well.
H:Actually my scores ranked second in the archery class, just one point behind the highest scores.
K:How about fishing class?
H:There are many fish in the lake so that we could catch fish very easily. We have a sense of accomplishment.
K:Did you lose anything during this camp? And how did you pack your luggage?
H:No, I lost nothing, I kept my own things very well. I like packing things, it’s a piece of cake for me to pack my suitcase.

Tenacity
Hugo always found ways to participate in every activity we took part in, and often times ranked highly when doing so.  Canadian’s value tenacity, and Hugo truly had a fighter’s spirit throughout the camp, to the point where he showed only excitement and preparedness with regards to travelling abroad with his classmates, even though he had never been outside of the country before.  Hugo’s a strong kid, and his tenacious spirit is a strong reflection of the Canadian value system.

Jack
K:Hi Jack, have you been to other countries before?
J:I have been to America, Japan and Germany.
K: What do you think of Canada?
J:The air is very clean and the environment is very good. The people are also very nice.
K:And what do you think of your host family? Were you accustomed to their living style?
J:Our host family has a very big house with a big backyard. They plant some fruit trees in the backyard, and there is also a gas-heated swimming pool. Our host dad and mom would go to swim before dinner.
K: Did you join them in swimming?
J:Yes, I swam with them a few times.
K:You had many courses, such as an ESL class, crime scene analysis class, an archery class, a fishing class, etc. What was your favorite class?
J:Archery and cycling class. Although I didn’t shoot well in the archery class, but I just loved it. We had two days for cycling. The first day we rode on flat ground, the second day was in the mountains. I chose a small bike and I rode very fast on the first day, very smoothly, but was not very good when we rode in the mountains.

Open-Minded
Jack’s teachers and home stay family were happy about how open he was to trying new things.  Even if he had never done something before, he showed no hesitation in joining in an activity, or in trying a new meal, and preferred just to jump right into things. This type of open-mindedness is often found around travelers and people with an international mindset.  Watching Jack at work and at play, you could tell that he was really ready for whatever new or dynamic thing came his way.

Teddy
K:Hi Teddy, have you been to other countries?
T:No.
K:So this was your first time to go abroad. How did you feel? And what do you think of Canada?
T:The air and streets there are very clean. But I suffered from jet-lag in the first two days. I felt dizzy then.
K:Did you get used to the living in your host family?
T:My host family has two sons, one is just two years old, the other is four. And they have a big house with a big backyard. We could play on a trampoline and swings there. They have no pets.  My partner and I lived in the basement but it is different from our basements in China. Their basement is just a room full of light - very comfortable.
K: Oh really?
T:And they have a private cinema in the basement.
We had a special WeChat group for our students, where students were encourage to send in selfies daily.  The winner of each day’s selfie contest wouldn’t have to do the homework for the next day.  Teddy was a pro at taking daily life pictures with his family, whether they were swimming, watching a movie, or just playing outside that day.
Happy
K:Hi Happy, have you been to other countries before?
H:I have been to Russia, Korea, Singapore, Malaysia and I also went to CIEO’s Winter Camp 2017 in Canada.
K:What do you think of our last Winter Camp?
H:I loved it, I enjoyed the skiing, so I will go to your Winter Camp next time.
K:Since you have been to Canada twice, what do you think of it?
H:The air is very clean and the environment is very good.
K:What do you think of your host family?
H:My host dad and mom are old, just like my grandparents. My hast dad is an Indian, my host mom is local.
K:How about their food? Do you like their eating?
H:My host dad is good at making many delicious foods, such as fried rice, soup and other Indian food. I loved all their food.
K:Wow, sounds very delicious.
H:Yes, and home mom sometimes made pizza for us.

Responsibility
This was Happy’s second camp with us.  As a camp leader, he was extremely helpful, guiding new students on where to go and how to act, and also reliable in that he knew our camp rules and was a good example to everyone else.  I’m looking forward to going skiing with him this next Winter Camp!
Cora
K:  What classes did you have during this camp?
C:Berry picking, baking cookies, cycling and fishing.
K:Which class did you like most? Why?
C:I like the cooking and fishing, because it was my first time to bake cookies so I felt it is something new for me. There were many fish in the lake so we could easily catch fish.
K:I see, so what impressed you most in this summer camp?
C:I like the programs in Canada, which are quite different from ours in China. In China, every day we have to do a lot of homework and our teachers just want us to cram. We lack critical thinking.
K:Yes, you are right.
C:Yet in Canada, the teachers may just sit in front of the class, and encourage the students to ask questions and they interact a lot. I like this way of learning.
K:Yes, they encourage Inquiry-Based Learning. So, do you feel any personal changes after camp?
C:Yes, I have great initiative in expressing my own ideas now. For last winter camp, I didn’t dare to talk to my host family. This time I could communicate with my host dad and mom fluently.
Humility
Many students are afraid to speak out in their classrooms, fearing that they might give an incorrect answer.  However, in class, Cora took to the Canadian style of education very quickly, asking questions when she didn’t understand something, and trying to mirror her teacher’s example as closely as possible.  In Canadian education, admitting that you don’t know something isn’t considered a bad thing.  Instead, it allows the teachers to work better with a class to better understand a process.
Kiki
K:Which class did you like most? Why?
Kiki: I liked archery and fishing. Because I think archery helps exercise my arms and eyes. There were many fish in the lake so we could even catch fish without earthworms.
K:Wow, cool.
Kiki:We saw some rabbits in UBC and they were not afraid of people. So cute! We fed them.
K:So, what is your greatest memory of this summer camp?
Kiki:I feel myself to be more independent, and I’m more aware of team work.
K:Did you lose anything during this camp? Do you know how to pack your luggage?
Kiki: No, I am good at packing things so I separated the clean clothes and dirty clothes in my suitcase.
K: Did you buy any gifts for your parents?
Kiki:I bought maple syrup and berry jam, but my parents think the maple syrup is too sweet.

Kiki has a real strong character.  She was never afraid to try anything new, and she thought everything had the potential to be fun.  This went really far for her while we were abroad, as she wasn’t afraid to speak English, make new friends, or try new activities out.  She was another student that modeled the Canadian virtue of being “Tenacious”.
