Kazakhstan ‘Shock 2’ Exchange

哈萨克斯坦Shock 2’交流

Over two Wednesdays on the 23rd and 30th of November, pre-IB grade ten students held English exchange sessions with another IB school in Kazakhstan. Via Zoom, an internet software similar to Skype but with a bigger range of functions, our English A and B students took turns presenting two-minute speeches and getting feedback from both sides. Topics must be of global significance in the IB’s spirit of ‘international-mindedness’, and ranged from choosing environmentally friendly cars to water wars and issues surrounding being a teenager.

十一月2330号,IB十年级预备班的学生与哈萨克斯坦一所IB学校进行了英语交流活动。通过使用在线视频软件ZOOM,英语A/B的同学们都依次展示了两分钟的小型演讲,并与哈萨克斯坦的同学们互换意见建议。所选演讲题目都基于IB“全球化理念”。同学们的演讲题目从“选择利于环境可持续发展的新能源车”到“作为青少年所关心的话题”。

Despite initial problems with the technical set-up, once the speeches got under way, several interesting questions were raised to get to know both cultures better. For instance, there were questions on how much homework the students typically get in China and Kazakhstan as well as how to improve communication and relationships with those around them. Every presenter was marked using a common scale agreed on by both sides before, and strengths and weaknesses discussed. Students had fun learning from one another’s presentation styles and fascinating powerpoint slides.

虽然活动伊始有些技术设置的问题,但是演讲开始之后,同学们都很快进入角色,提出基于双方文化的问题。例如,哈萨克斯坦与中国学生们每天大概的作业量,如何提高交流和人际关系。双方的演讲者都会通过之前规定好的评分细则来评分。优缺点都会双方讨论。通过此次激动人心的活动和美轮美奂的PPT展示,同学们都享受其中并学到了很多。
