尊重他國文化文化交流在日本 21世紀東亞青少年大交流計劃(2018/19學年) | A rewarding experience on cultural exchange -- Japan-East Asia Network of Exchange for Students and Youths Programme (JENESYS) (2018/19)

 

21世紀東亞青少年大交流計劃」旨在透過提供不同國家青少年的溝通交流機會,以提升東南亞國家青少年對於日本的認識,並促進文化交流。可譽中五級鄭芷棠同學成功通過甄選,成為香港代表團43名參加學生之一,於2018129日至17日代表香港前往日本參加交流活動。

芷棠認為,參加這個交流計劃增加了她對於日本的認識。香港代表團學生獲得機會與日本學生交流,「我們能與日本學生一同上課,還可以參觀日本的學校。我們的眼光大開。」參加這個交流團,芷棠發現日本人有很多值得學習的地方。

除此之外,參加交流團讓芷棠更認識澳門,以及自己居住的地方——香港。香港和澳門的學生會一同前往日本,在出發之前,大會提供機會讓兩個地方的學生互相認識,互相了解兩地的相同之處,以及相異之處。在交談中,學生漸漸明白兩個地方在中國,甚至世界的定位。

到日本交流,還是與澳門學生交流,都讓芷棠明白到不同地方有不同的特色,不同的文化都是值得尊重的。

 

JENESYS aims to promote mutual understanding among the East Asia region, and deepen understanding of Japan through activities including field visits to cultural, economic and environmental facilities, school visits and home stays for education and cultural exchange. Our S.5 student, Summer Cheng, was interviewed and successfully accepted to participate in this programme. She was one of the 43 student representatives of Hong Kong travelling to Japan from 9 to 17 December, 2018 with another team of students from Macau.

In the trip, Summer was given chances to experience school life in Japan by paying visits to Japanese schools and attending classes with other Japanese students. She also stayed with a host family and she could communicate with local Japanese. These activities allowed her to explore and learn more about Japan.

In addition, Summer has made new friends with other participating students from Hong Kong as well as Macau before the trip. Apart from getting to know each other, they discussed the cultural similarities and differences between the two places. Through the interactions among themselves, they have learnt about the importance of respecting other cultures.

It was definitely an eye-opening and rewarding experience for all participants including Summer to broaden their horizons and perspectives.
