参与感言

马老师
北京中加学校
项目带给学生的成就感是无与伦比的,这些天里我能感觉到学生的用心。即便是在乐高乐园里,学生还是始终不忘学习调研的任务。给我印象很深的是街头采访环节,即便刚开始采访被拒绝了,学生还是锲而不舍的努力去做,直到成功。学生自信的提升,他们的成就感、满足感真的是来自于完成任务的过程,这也是对他们付出努力的回报。很少有项目可以像“关键成长”这样让学生们愉快的同时还能有这么多的收获,所以我认为是非常值得来一次的。

艾老师
北京中加学校
在下午的GESE 课堂上,他们与伦敦当地的老师共同探讨这些问题,兼听其他同学的意见,晚上的自习时间,他们在中国带队老师的辅导下,学习、巩固与问题相关的词汇和语法,继而完成每份成长报告。为了给学术报告提供充足的素材、为了给学生提供充分的思考时间、空间,每天的活动行程中都安排了伦敦地区的参访活动。

杨基民
贵阳花溪碧桂园学校
我感觉,在英国十四天的学习,很大程度的提高了自己思考问题的能力。比如讨论 Topic of my city, 刚开始我真的一点没有头绪,慢慢随着学习的深入,我开始学着提出自己的问题,这也帮助我最后的口语考试中取得好成绩。ASDAN 的活动还有很多 Teamwork,很多有趣的活动让你迅速融入到团队中。还有采访街头路人,调查一些 Financial 问题以及问一些关于Media 的问题,这些都提高了自己的沟通能力,让自己跟陌生人对话不再紧张,我真的很推荐大家来参加关键成长项目。

马美茹
北京中加学校
GESE 课堂氛围很好,一点都不枯燥、沉闷,大家都是在很快乐的学习。老师也会参与到她布置的任务中去,同学都很愿意去做这些作业。最难忘的是我们小组一起做的 Cupcakes 商业计划案,小组成员合作写方案,算财务数据,团队合作的感觉真的很好。

董老师
苏州外国语学校
短短的十数天时间,我感觉到了学生们明显的成长和进步,从不爱开口到爱开口,到主动找老师交流。尤其是社会调研采访,一些同学其实生活中面对身边的人都不愿开口说话,现在面对外国人,甚至是非英语母语国家的人,他们都能开始自信主动得跟对方交流。另外一种无形的收获来自于国外生活贴近的体验,不管是深入体验伦敦的公共交通,还是走进当地的蔬菜集市,感受地道的英伦生活、镜头背后伦敦人的生活,这些对学生都有潜移默化的影响。这段经历对学生是历练,也是一个难得的成长锻炼的机会。

盛嘉仪
苏州外国语学校
我觉得这个活动比想象中的“累”,但学到的东西非常多,比如说可以更加流利的跟外国人交流,锻炼自己主动处理问题的能力以及在团队中合作。之前我来过英国,那次时间还挺久的,但感觉这次活动反而收获的更多。首先很多活动是分小组进行的,我是小组的组长,团队合作一直很好,也很开心,学到了怎么样去领导团队。然后活动也很多元化,比如在BBC,学习了解怎么做新闻节目、天气预报,很专业也很有意思。印象很深的还有做 Business Plan,刚开始觉得很难,毕竟初中生嘛,经验不足。但在 ASDAN 老师的指导下,我们逐渐有了思路,开始有了自己产品的定位、团队分工等等,感觉很好。我对未来参加活动的同学建议是:在这里你一开始就要尽量主动些,可以认识很多朋友,这是难得的体验,所以最好要认真一些,把报告写好。

李思莹
上海平和光华学校
ASDAN Key Steps 行程中我印象最深刻的活动是团队合作。一天的团队活动中我们要自己设计采访问题、访问他人并制作视频,这都是我从未尝试过的活动,对我个人而言是非常大的突破。行程中 Go Ape 野人计划探险之旅是我最喜欢的,除了锻炼身体还锻炼了胆量和谋略。我会推荐我的朋友们来参加关键成长项目。
