第一次出国 第一次义工 第一次放飞自我 My Volunteer experience in Thailand อาสาสมัครนานาชาติ รร.บ้านเขาจาน จ.สระแก้ว ม.ค. 2018

初遇

2018年1月13日晚23:30飞机正式起飞

翌日凌晨2:20我们下了飞机正式踏上泰国的领土

看着英文指示牌顺利找到了填写入境单的地方,由于提前做了相关功课,所以即便是第一次出国我们也很快的就填好了,接着就是漫长的过海关等待(没想到大晚上的还有那么多人,还有很多中国人),然后取行李换掉大棉袄,寄存行李箱,一切都准备妥当之后,曼谷一日游就这样在凌晨3:30正式开始了。

由于实在是太早了,所以我们之前准备去的那几个地方都还没有开门,也不想打车去那几个几十公里以外的水上市场,虽然都在曼谷也很有特色,但打车实在是不划算。于是我们在机场7-11简单的解决了早餐(到泰国的第一顿饭——泰式面包,味道还不错哈哈)之后就一直等到6:00才去坐的city line去恰都恰市场和另一个小伙伴会合。下午去了曼谷一个很有名的Shopping Mall “Siam Paragon”(顺便安利一下,面积很大,王权很划算,尤其匡威的鞋子不到200CNY),晚上便回机场和Grit安排的前来接我们的老师会合了,还有最后一个小伙伴也是晚上才到的。搭载我们前往义工住宿地的Van很舒服让我一下就爱上了泰国的车(不过后来事实证明抗颠簸性能并不强哈哈),睡了大概3个小时约23点时到达住宿地,太困了勉强洗了个澡倒头就睡了,路上老师给我们买的零食也没吃结果被我们忘在那里放了好几天哈哈。

First Meet

The plane took off at 23:30 on the evening of January 13, 2018. At 2:20 am the next day, we got off the plane and landed in Thailand. Following the English signs we found the entry smoothly due to some “homework” in advance, so even if this was the first time to go abroad we also get ready quickly, then there was the long wait to pass through the customs, there were so many people even at night. And then picked up the luggage and change big cotton-made jacket, after everything was ready, the day at the Bangkok begin at 3:30 am. Because it was too early, so there were a lot of places have not opened, and we didn’t want to take a taxi to the several dozens of kilometers outside to the water market, it’s not cost-effective. So we stayed at the airport and went to 7-11 to simply solved our breakfast (Thailand’s first meal – Thai bread, taste not bad ha ha).We waited until 6:00 am to take the city line to the Qiatuqia Weekend Market and met another friend. Afternoon we went to a very famous Shopping Mall in Bangkok named “Siam Paragon” , then back to the airport at night to meet our teacher, and the last friend is just arrived. We took a van to get to our volunteer base which is very comfortable , I just fell in love with Thailand’s car , after 3 hours we reached at about 23:00 pm o ‘clock ,we were too sleepy to take a bath and fall asleep.

第一次出国 第一次义工 第一次放飞自我

Day 1

由于我们一行5个人中我们有3个人本来就是认识的所以大家并没有什么磨合期,一大早起来就嬉笑打闹搅成了一团,没有谁还没睡醒,没有谁很腼腆,每个人脸上都带着笑,准备好了迎接我们的第一天义工之旅。7:00负责人Jason和Mam就准时来接我们了,大家还没来得及切换成泰语模式,仍用的Hello打招呼 =v= 然后就出发啦~

到达学校的第一件事就是先做自我介绍。孩子们都很好奇地盯着我们,怀着忐忑而又紧张的心情我们向他(她)们介绍了自己,他(她)们似乎都很喜欢我们,激动而又热烈地鼓着掌,孩童天真的笑容让我们的不安很快就烟消云散了。接着就是参观他(她)们的教室和课堂了。

教室里很干净整洁,不知道是不是泰国宗教文化的原因,泰国人民都很爱干净,即使是厕所也是如此。我们参观了幼儿园,小学,初中生的课堂,还自己组织并参与了一堂兴趣课。就是教他(她)们一首简单的歌曲,从这首歌里面学10个跟身体有关的英语单词,然后再用这些单词来玩“你画我猜”。所有人一共分为4组,每个人轮流来猜,其它小组成员负责比划,先是由小组长(我们4个志愿者,另一个负责出题,现场其他老师做裁判)做示范,然后再让小朋友们一个一个来,最先得满10分的组胜利。这个游戏很好玩,在国内都没玩得这么起兴过,可能是因为语言不通,我们只能用肢体语言来交流,所以显得非常有趣。接着我们又帮他(她)们其中的一个班批改作业,他们上课都学得很认真,作业也做得很好,比我当年写得工整多了。上完课顺便去参观了一下他(她)们吃饭的食堂,抢饭比我们还快哈哈😄。

接着下午我们去了集市上买English Camp所需要的东西,Jason请我们在当地一个很带感的小酒馆搓了一顿,乐队居然还唱起了《甜蜜蜜》,我也是惊呆了,原来泰国人民的中文这么6。然后就回住的地方准备去啦~头天晚上太累了没来得及看清楚,这次终于可以看清楚了。我们住的地方是一个仿造的树屋,相当精美,很漂亮,很有泰国乡村田园小清新的感觉。

Next morning we woke up with a smile because we were too excited about our work. At 7:00 am, Jason and Mam came to pick us. We didn’t have time to switch to the Thai language mode, and we still used “Hello” but not “Sawadeeka” to greet each other,and then we started.

The first thing to do when we got school is to introduce ourselves. The children are stared curiously at us, with uneasy and nervous mood we introduced ourselves to them, they seemed to be like us, excited and clapped warmly, the children’s innocent smile let us uneasy soon vanished.

Their classroom is very clean and tidy. I don’t know if it is the impact from Thai religious culture. We visited kindergarten, primary school, middle school students’ class, then organized and participated an interesting class. Just taught them a simple song, to learn 10 body-related English words from the song, and then use the words to play “you draw and I guess”. All people were divided into 4 groups, everyone took turns to guess, the other team members did the action part. First round was played by the group leaders (we four volunteers, another is responsible for sum up our scores), and then we let the children play one by one, the first victory was who won over 10 points. This game is very interesting. Probably because of the language barrier, we can only use body language to communicate, so it is very interesting. Then we helped one of the class to revise their homework. They studied very carefully in class and did very well in their homework, which was better than I had written. By the way, after class, we visited the canteen where they were eating.

Then in the afternoon, we went to the market to buy materials for the day after tomorrow’s English Camp. When we got back to the place where we live, I came to realize the homestay where we live is a beautiful tree house. We had a fresh feeling in Thailand when we saw this building and its attractive garden.

Day 2

幸运的我们遇到了泰国的教师节,于是跟着Jason和Mam进城去嗨皮啦~上午先是去一个大礼堂听和尚们念经,我和旁边的小伙伴顺利睡着💤结果还被另外几个小伙伴拍下了痴迷于睡觉的丑照。吃过午饭,下午Jason带我们去了当地一个游客很少的古庙,古庙负责人主动过来给我们讲这个古庙的历史故事,游客很少,很安静,一点也不拥挤。神秘的古庙在阳光下显得静谧、庄重,石头上的雕花很精美,暗示着这位王的高贵。我们就这样慢慢地走着,静静地享受着阳光,感受着古印度历史的熏陶。我很喜欢这样的午后,很有意义,除了我们也没多少其它的游客也就2~3个,很安静,而我什么都不用想,静静地感受就好了。这就是泰国的魅力,它能让你慢下来,感受空气中生命的呼吸。

晚上我们参加了一个大party,就在早上开会的礼堂外面有个大操场。路上的夕阳很美,火烧云,在泰国每天都看得到。布置的比较简单,并不华丽,但依然是不错的,氛围也很好,还有现场抽奖活动。我们和刚到的另外两位志愿者坐在一起,他们俩都中大奖了!然后就是无尽的吃吃喝喝,吃饱了去跳会儿舞又继续吃。不得不说泰国人民真的热情度很高,也很放得开,即使不会跳舞,乱扭也可以,不用觉得别扭,更不用觉得害臊,没人会在意你的舞姿,热情到位了就对了,因为很多老师其实也不是特别会跳舞哈哈(ಡωಡ),最后由一个小伙伴喝醉了结束哈哈(ಡωಡ)。

Day 3

Engliah Camp is coming!

我们和高年级的大孩子玩了一整天,用的资料全是我们星期一下午和晚上准备的。他(她)们学得很认真,很快,也都很积极,有意思的是我们教他(她)们一个英语单词,他(她)们也会教我们泰语的名字。很快,泰语在不知不觉中就学了一箩筐了。我们一共有3个不同的游戏,每个游戏由2名志愿者负责,称为Station1,Station2,Station3,学生们一共分了5个组,从Station1开始,一直学(玩)到Station3。结束之后我们还互相合影留念。很开心和他(她)们在一起,让我有机会交到了不少朋友,还有一个玩得特别好的直到现在仍在联系。然后我们又一起去打排球,羽毛球,荡秋千,单纯善良的他们不时地有人给我们送来芭蕉和橙汁还有零食,很暖心,很放松,完全忘却了在学校的压力,没有学习的烦恼,向往的生活~

Fortunately, we met the teachers’ day in Thailand and went to the town with Jason and Mam. In the morning, we went to a great hall to listen to the monks chanting, but I slept with my friends hahaha.After lunch, Jason took us to a local temple, which was quiet and not crowded. The mysterious ancient temple appeared quiet and solemn in the sun, and the carved flowers on the stone were exquisite, implying the nobleness of the king. We walked slowly, quietly enjoying the sunshine, feeling the ancient Indian history. I love this afternoon, and it made a lot of sense. This is the charm of Thailand, which allows you to slow down and feel the breath of life in the air.

In the evening, we attended a big party, and there was a big playground outside the auditorium where we had the meeting in the morning. The sunset is very beautiful, and the “fire” clouds can be seen every day in Thailand.The party’s atmosphere is really good, and there is a living show. We sat down with two other volunteers.Then there is the endless eating and drinking, when we feel full we went to dance and after dancing we could continue to eat.Unbelievable how much I ate that night.Hahhhha~

Day 4

今天是和小一点的孩子们玩。小孩子们很可爱,眼镜很亮,像有星星一样,他(她)们会主动对你微笑,融化了我们的内心,所以我们对他(她)们总是严厉不起来,更多的时候我们都是寓教于乐,在陪他们玩,玩的时候教给他(她)们一些简单的东西。

晚上我们去了附近一个很有情调的小酒馆和老师们吃最后一顿饭。草垛、竹桥、向日葵、田野、远山,我们还喝起了泰国特色大象酒Chang,按泰国人民的习惯加块冰更好喝。大家玩起了自拍,拍累了就坐下来吃着花生聊天,或者唱唱歌,小酒馆有一个小舞台可以K歌,喝完酒的我们完全放飞了自我,每个人都上去唱了至少一首歌,这些都成为了我们后来美好的回忆。

The last day we spent with younger children. They are very adorable, their eyes were very bright, like stars on the sky. They always smile to us, which melted our hearts, so we were not strict to them when we taught them. In the evening we went to a nice little pub to have our last meal with the tearchers. I still remember the bamboo bridge, sunflower, broad field, distant mountains. We also drank the Thai special elephant wine “Chang”, better taste with ice. Everyone sang on the little stage,we talked a lot,which all became my cherish memories at last.
