我的一本海外生活笔记:当美国式文化遇到中国式生活(英汉对照)试读:

前言

本书首先注重实用性,第一步帮助有志于到德国留学的青年才俊,自己动手DIY-Do it yourself-办妥留德手续,无需任何中介帮助。对于准备申请德国留学的学生,APS审核是一大关,本书结合很多参加者的经验,编写成了审核这一部分。结尾附上了德福考试的例题,希望对有此志向的读者有所帮助。

英国著名哲学家培根说读书所获得的知识“最见于高谈阔论之中”。你在德国留学,和德国人谈些什么呢?没有深入的交谈,你怎么交朋友?本书对德中两国的重要文化知识及其差别进行了详细的讲解。为了便于你提纲挈领地掌握有关文化知识,本书安排了文化小贴士。前一页提问,后一页解答。

出国学习、旅游和工作,除了语言的准备,关键是要对目的国的文化要有所了解。入乡随俗,入国问禁,只有这样才能少碰钉子。文化是一种体验。有了本书的经验,你在德国学习、工作才会事事顺利。如果不注意,轻者,签证会被注销,人会被遣返;重者,甚至有牢狱之灾。

德国文化是产生大师的文化,哲学家有康德、黑格尔、马克思等大师,文学家有歌德、席勒、海涅等巨匠。德国的诺贝尔文学奖获得者在世界上首屈一指。德国文化也是种富有自我批评的文化,德国总理勃兰特跪倒在犹太被害人纪念碑前的那一刻,世界都对他充满了敬意。南京大屠杀时期,救下无数中国人的拉贝,也将永远活在中国人民的心中。德国文化中的严谨、缜密对世界文明的发展做出了自己突出的贡献。

本书的作者邀请读者和书中主人公一起来体验德国文化,由浅入深、由表及里地让读者对德国文化有一个比较全面深入的了解。

在中国的德国留学生Arvo参与编写和校对,Arvo现在已经学成归国。本书一部分可以说是非常珍贵的留学指南。内容从申请APS证书、APS的有关介绍,到申请德国学校;从留学新生到达德国后必须熟悉的外事处、宿舍等细节,到如何待人接物都介绍得非常清楚。去德国留学的学生,可以以此作为参考。

接着介绍不莱梅和慕尼黑的风土人情,还有“疯子”路德维格国王的传奇和他的神秘城堡。中国有喜欢绘画、不理政事的宋徽宗,有专心致志修下水道的汉桓帝刘志,有天才木匠明熹宗朱由校。德国当年的巴伐利亚也有个极度害羞、不理政事、沉浸在天鹅骑士传说中的国王路德维格二世。他和风流倜傥的歌剧作家瓦格纳交为挚友,倾国力建造城堡,而且还是个同性恋者。

通过介绍莫扎特的著名歌剧《伊多梅诺》,对比中国的京剧,让读者对比了解东西方的高雅艺术和有关礼仪,学会用英语谈有关问题。

建筑是凝固的音乐,建筑是一个城市无言的纪念碑。通过介绍慕尼黑大学周围的标志性建筑,让读者对东西方建筑的差别、有关术语和文化有一个大致的了解。

德国的博物馆闻名于世,柏林就有一座博物馆岛,是到那里旅游的文化人不能不去的地方。本书介绍了柏林的几个主要的博物馆。参观这些博物馆,不了解西方和中国绘画的差别是很难有什么收获的,这些在德国是常识。我们在书末,重点谈论有关艺术流派和重要作品,教你怎么谈高雅艺术。

书中介绍了德国历史上最主要的伟人和名人。其中每个人物都有些令人称奇之处,例如布莱希特逝世时,根据他的遗愿,在他的心上刺入了一把匕首,他被装殓进一个钢制棺材下葬,以免他的遗体被虫子吃掉。阿多诺·冯塔纳57岁才开始写作生涯,居然名垂史册,应验了那句老话,只要努力,永远不晚。席勒发展了美的灵魂这个概念。海涅一生都在自我身份的认知中苦苦挣扎。汉娜·阿伦特和马丁·海德格尔保持着一种长期、风雨飘摇和浪漫的关系。

本书的作者希望读者在尽情欣赏正文的同时,不要放过正文之后的注释和附录部分。注释中有一些特立独行人物的介绍,例如英国画家培根的狂笔,英国著名海军将领纳尔逊的英雄故事,还有德国巴伐利亚著名将领的传奇等,都值得一读。

赵庆勋教授的摄影作品为本书增色不少。德国外教高奈利娅·哈恩黛尔(Cornelia Haendel)和伊沃特·普林斯(Evert Prins)为本书提供了一些非常重要的素材,其中哈恩黛尔还帮助对本书进行了校对。没有他们的帮助,本书要达到现在的水准是非常困难的。编者2015年6月Part I Overseas Study in Germany and German Education 留学德国和德国教育Oct.20 th,2011,Thursday, Fine-A Long Wallet of Louis Vutton

In the afternoon sunshine, Wang Chenxin wanders along a lane near her house without a target. It is really a lazy affernoon.She is a senior of Sias International University and majors in education.She has just experienced a shock of her family.She planned to study in the U.S.A.and had a great score 110 of TOEFL while full marks are 120.Yet her daddy lost ffve hundred thousand US Dollars in Shanghai stock market, which means she had no fund to study in the U.S.A.Her mother was very angry and quarreled with her daddy.She escaped to the lane for a peace.

Her mobile rings.“Hurry up to the First People Hospital!Heart attack, your daddy.”shouted her mommy. Wang Chenxin calls a taxi and tells the driver:“The First People Hospital!Please drive as fast as possible.”Suddenly she feels something hard under her.Her hand touches a bag and she sees a Long Wallet of Louis Vutton-that is a wallet of Delighttul Monogram exactly.“My Lord,”she can not help yelling.

“What's the matter?”asks the taxi driver.

“I saw an old friend.”says Wang Chenxin.

She opens her bag, takes out something and put them and the wallet into her bag. Then she checks and makes sure nothing else leff in taxi.

Her aunt is in front of hospital. She tells her that her daddy has been saved and he is sleeping in Heart Ward 211.When she and her aunt enter the ward, she sees her mommy, uncle and cousins besides her sleeping daddy.She murmurs:“Thank you so much to help us.Now it's my turn to take care of my daddy.Mommy goes back to cook supper.Please go home now.If necessary, I will call you, uncle, aunt and my cousins.”

Affer her relattves go, she sits down and takes out the wallet.There are an identification card, a passport, a VISA card and six thothe USAnd Yuan RMB in it.Besides them, she ffnds some name cards, which are the same.She takes out a name card and reads:“Li Yucui.President of Student Union, Medical School, Munich University.Mobile in China:13511800628.Mobile in Germany:17668157321 Phone in Germany:089-56678993.”

Wang Chenxin walks out of the ward and calls Li Yuchui.

Wang Chenxin's mommy comes to the ward with supper. While they are eattng, a beauttful lady in purple suits walks in with a fruit basket in her hand.

“Who is Whang Chenxin?”asks she in a low voice.

“It's me.”says Wang Chenxin.

Li Yucui says“This must be Chenxin's mommy. Good Evening, Aunt.①”and hands her the basket.

“You are so kind to visit my husband with a giff.”

“How is Uncle?”asks Li Yucui.

“It is much better.”answered Wang Chenxin,“Here is your long wallet. Please check your Visa card, money, etc.”

Li Yucui puts the wallet into her bag and says:“I believe you.”

Wang Chenxin's mommy says:“My poor daughter. She should have gone to the USA.Now her daddy fails in his business and has a heart attack.”

“Mommy”,says Wang Chenxin with complaining eyes.

“Why don't you study in Germany without tuition?Today I have an appointment. How about 3 p.m.in Starbucks in Wanda Square on Saturday since I have to leave for Beijing and go back to Germany next Monday?I will treat you.”

“Thank you so much. I will be there”,says Wang Chenxin.

Notes:

① It is a custom in China for young people to call an old lady“Aunt 阿姨”and an old Gentleman“Uncle 叔叔/伯伯”no matter who she or he is.Children will call them“Grandma 奶奶 and Grandpa 爷爷”whether the old are friends and relatives or not.2011年10月20日,星期四,晴 路易·威登包

王晨馨漫无目的地漫步在下午的阳光里,真是一个令人懒散的下午。她是西亚斯国际大学的大三学生,教育专业。她刚刚经历一场家庭地震。她本计划到美国学习,满分120分的托福考试,她获得了110分的高分。可他爸爸在上海股票市场损失了50万美元,这意味着她没钱去美国读书了。她妈妈非常气愤,和她爸爸吵了起来。于是她逃到巷子里,图个清静。

她的手机响了起来。她妈妈喊到:“快上第一人民医院来,你爸爸心脏病发作了。”王晨馨叫了一辆出租,对司机说:“第一人民医院。能开多快就多快。”突然她感到屁股下什么东西硬硬的。她的手触碰到一个包,那是一个路易威登长钱包,“是清晰地印有“LV”花押的帆布包。”她忍不住喊到:“我的天。”

出租司机问到:“什么事?”

王晨馨说:“我看到一个老朋友。”

她打开包,拿出一些东西,然后把这些东西和那个钱包放入包中。她然后检查了一下,确定没有什么遗忘出租车上。

她婶婶等在医院门前,她告诉她,她爸爸已经被救过来了,现在211心脏病科病房,已经睡着了。当她和婶婶走进病房的时候,她看到妈妈、叔叔、堂哥和堂妹站在爸爸的床前。她小声说:“谢谢你们的帮助,现在换我来照顾父亲吧。妈妈回去做晚饭吧,叔叔、婶婶、哥哥、妹妹,你们也请回吧!有事我再叫你们。”

妈妈和亲戚们走后,她坐下来,取出钱包。钱包里有一个身份证,一本护照,一张维萨信用卡和六千元人民币,还有一些名片,名片上的内容相同。她取出一张名片,读到:“李玉翠,慕尼黑大学医学院学生会主席。中国手机号:13511800628.德国手机号:17668157321.德国电话:089-56678993.”

王晨馨走出病房,打电话给李玉翠。

王晨馨的妈妈带来了晚饭。她们正吃晚饭的时候,一个穿紫色套装的漂亮女士,提着一个果篮,走了进来。

她低声问到:“请问谁是王晨馨?”

王晨馨说:“是我。”

李玉翠说:“这位肯定是晨馨的妈妈。晚上好,阿姨。”说着把果篮递了过去。“感谢你来看我老公。”“叔叔怎么样了?”

王晨馨回答说:“好多了!这是你的钱包,检查一下你的维萨卡、钱和其它东西。”

李玉翠把钱包放入她的包中,说:“我相信你。”

王晨馨妈妈说:“我可怜的女儿。她应该已经去美国了。现在他爸爸生意赔了,心脏病又犯了。”“去德国留学吧!不要学费。今天我有约。我星期一去北京,然后回德国。周六下午三点,万达广场星巴克店,我请你喝咖啡。”

王晨馨说:“太感谢了。我会去的。”New Words and Expressions

读书笔记

_______________________________________Oct.22nd,2011,Saturday, Shower Why don’t you choose Germany?

In Starbucks in Wanda Square, Zhengzhou, Wang Chenxin says affer sipping coffee:“Please introduce overseas study in Germany in details, my elder sister.”

“It's a pleasure. The security money is not necessary for overseas study in Germany.For admission to German Universittes, the language requirement is lower.With the certtffcate of certain credit hours of German Study(which is generally 800 to 1000 credit hours)or English Study, and after you pass the exam of DSH or DaF, you can have your admission notice from a German university.Before you decide to study in German, you should try to ensure if you are qualiffed.You should be a student of common universities or colleges listed on the website of the Education Ministry of PRC.The students of vocational Colleges are now not acceptable.Before you apply for admission to a college or university, a certificate issued by APS is demanded by German colleges or universittes.APS-Akademische Prüfstelle means the Academic Evaluatton Centre in English,”says Li Yucui.

“How can I apply for the certtffcate?”Wang Chenxi asks.“You contact APS which provides services on behalf of the Cultural Section of the German Embassy, Beijing. It was established in July 2001 in conjunctton with the German Academic Exchange Service(Deutscher Akademischer Austauschdienst-DAAD)and is based in Beijing.The APS is effecttvely the gateway to study in Germany for Chinese university applicants.After the successful verification of an applicant’s documents(this could include a validatton interview or TestAS—德适考试),the APS issues a certificate which German universities demand as an admission requirement.This certificate attests the authenticity of the documents that have been handed in by the Chinese applicants, and also that the person has achieved sufficient qualifications in China in order to apply for the study at a German university.You pay 2500 Yuan RMB, mail or submit the necessary documents.They will verify it.About the detailed informatton, you can consult the website-www.aps.com,”says Li Yucui.

Wang Chenxin asks:“Shall I have a TestAS as a senior student?”

Li Yucui says:“Chinese undergraduate applicants, who have not yet completed the sixth semester of their undergraduate studies, take the TestAS within the APS procedure instead of doing the interview. TestAS is made up with three parts:30 minutes of language test,110 minutes of core test-Solving Quantitative Problems, Inferring Relationships, Completing Patterns and Continuing Numerical Series,145 to 150 minutes of professional knowledge exams.There are four modules-Economics Module, Engineering Module, Humanities, Cultural Studies and Social Sciences Module, Mathematics, Computer Science and Natural Sciences Module.Applicants register online(www.testas.de),remit 2500 Yuan RMB to APS, including Visa cost, and submit documents for examinatton.Then they will have their TestAS on a date and in a locatton they chose.Affer they pass TestAS, APS will mail ten certtffcates to applicants.With them, they can apply to a German university or college.But in Germany, the applicants must study the same majors as in Chinese university and can not make a change.That’s another story.You must prepare an interview in APS o ces in Beijing or Shanghai.”

“How shall I apply for the interview exactly?”

The procedure in detail is:

1 You ffrst register online with website-www.aps.org.cn.

2 Remit 2500 Yuan RMB to APS account.

3 Submit your documents required by APS.

4 You will be waittng for a nottce of your interview ttme.

5 You must be interviewed on ttme.

6 You will have your APS certificate if your interview is successful.

There are 4 to 8 weeks from your submi ng your documents to receiving the result. Somettmes or during vacatton, the handling ttme will be longer or shorter.

“What documents should be submitted?”

1. Duplicate of remittance.

2.Online registratton document.(You print PDF ffle and sttck your photo of 2 inches on)

3.Duplicate of your identification card.(If you have your passport, duplicate of it is necessary.)

4.Duplicatton of graduatton certtffcate of your primary school.(Notarizatton is not necessary.In the document, there should be your educatton system and ttme of beginning and ending of your primary school study).

9.Notarization of each semester's achievements of each program(with notarization document of its English or German translatton).

10.Notarizatton of your English or German credit hours(credit hours or self-studying hours).

Wang Chenxin asks:“Are there anything else important for preparing the documents?”

Li Yucui says:“1. Certificate of studying in a college or university must state how students are admitted by the college or university, names of colleges, faculttes or departments, major, student ID NO.,program, beginning and ending of students’studying in the college or university, semesters students have ffnished, with the stamp of a school level o ce such as the stamp of the teaching affairs office or the stamp of archive or student record o ce, etc.Department Stamps are not acceptable.”

2.If an undergraduate student dose not have bachelor degree certtffcate, he or she must have his or her college or university’s certtffcate to state why he or she does not have the certtffcate.The original document is necessary.

3.College or university achievement documents should include every course the students study.Please never miss any one, include the course the student failed to study and did not pass the final exam.The achievements should be recorded semester by semester.Students should submit the document with the stamp of a school level o ce such as the stamp of the teaching affairs o ce or the stamp of archive or student record o ce, etc.Department Stamps are not acceptable.

5.The notarizatton documents should be with their English or German translatton notarizatton document.(Students can consult notarizatton o ces of their cittes.)

6.APS may require some applicants to submit extra documents.

“I was told that there is no bachelor degree in German Universities. The college students can study for their master degree directly.Is that true?”says Wang Chenxi.

“It was a tradition. But since 1999 more than 2000 international B.A.and M.A.courses have been introduced at German universittes.At the moment, B.A.and M.A.degree courses already account for about 35%of all courses taught at German universities, and by 2010 they are scheduled to have almost completely replaced the tradittonal degrees.I will talk about it in detail later on.”said Li Yi Cui.

“I was told there are three parallel but separate types of schools at the secondary level in German educatton,”Says Wang Chenxi.

“Yes, the German educatton system has three disttnct features which distinguish it from the education systems of most other industrialized nations.What you talked about is one of them.Second, there is a so-called‘dual system’of vocational training carried out simultaneously at the workplace and at vocational school.Third, most German schools and institu tions of higher educatton are tradittonally state-owned and free of charge,”says Wang Chenxi.

“How about students of fine art, dance and music major?I have a good friend who majors in ffne art?”

“They must go to Germany to have an admittance exam in the related universittes or colleges.Interview is not for them.Of course, they can only study in the colleges of ffne art, music and dance.If they want to study in other common colleges or universittes, they must be in common examinatton procedure-common China applicant procedure or documents examinatton procedure.”2011年10月22日,星期六,小雨 为什么不去德国留学?

郑州万达广场,星巴克店中,王晨馨抿了一口咖啡说:“请详细给我介绍一下德国留学的细节,姐姐。”“好吧!去德国留学不需要交保证金。德国大学录取学生对语言的要求比较低。有德语学习的课时证明(通常要求800到1000课时)或英语学习的课时证明,并通过语言考试(DSH或DAF),你就能收到德国大学的录取通知。在你决定到德国学习以前,你要确定你是否具备上述条件。你必须就读于中国教育部网站所列名单中的大学或者学院。现在不录取职业技术学院的学生。申请入学之前,要求有APS所出的证书。APS-Akademische Prüfstelle意为‘学业评价中心’。”

王晨馨问:“怎样申请APS证书?”

李玉翠说:“你和APS联系,APS代表北京德国使馆的文化部门为你提供服务。APS成立于2001年7月,附属于德国学术交流服务中心,设在北京。对于申请去德国大学就读的中国学生来说,APS是有效的途径。申请者被查证通过之后(包括审查申请者提供的文件和查证面试或者德适考试),APS签发一个证书,德国大学录取你,将要求申请人有这个证书。此证书认证中国申请者提供文件的真实性,证明此人在中国已经具备资格,能够申请赴德国大学学习。在接到申请人的付费(2500元人民币)和邮寄或交上必要的材料之后,他们会全面审查。你也可以登录他们的官方网站—www.aps.org.cn了解更多详情。”

王晨馨问:“我是大四学生,需要参加德适考试吗?”

李玉翠说:“尚未修满6个学期的中国申请者,并准备申请德国大学的本科学位课程的学生,必须参加德适考试,替代审核面谈。德适考试由3部分组成:30分钟的语言测试,110分钟的核心测试——数字运算、确定逻辑关系、图形推理和数字排列。还有145至150分钟的专业知识测试。分为四个专业方面的测试模块,有经济学、工科、文化及社会科学、文科。申请者在线注册(www.testas.de),汇款2500到APS审核部,这包括签证费用,提交文件供审核。然后在他们选定的时间和地点,参加德适考试,通过德适考试后,审核部将会寄给他们10份审核证明。有了审核证明就可以申请德国学校了。申请者在德国必须学习他们在中国大学的专业,不能转专业。你是另外一回事,你必须准备在北京或上海进行APS面试”。“我具体怎么申请面试?”“程序具体是:

1 先网上注册—www.aps.org.cn.

2 汇2500元人民币审核费至审核部账号。

3 按要求递交审核材料。

4 等待审核部通知面谈时间。

5 按时参加审核面谈。

6 通过免试后获得审核证书。

从提交完整材料到审核结果,一般需要4—8周的时间,在个别情况下或假期里处理时间可能会延长或缩短。”“要准备交什么材料?”“1.汇款单收据的复印件。”

2.审核部在线注册证明(将PDF格式的电子文件打印出来,并贴上近期2寸证件照片)。

3.申请人身份证复印件(如有护照,也需提供护照复印件)。

4.小学毕业证书的复印件(无需公证,注明学制,学习起止时间)。

5.初中毕业证书的复印件(无需公证,注明学制,学习起止时间)。

6.高中毕业证书的公证件(附英语或德语翻译)。

7.大学录取花名册的公证件(附英语或德语翻译)。

8.在读生提供大学在读证明的公证件(附英语或德语翻译)。

9.大学成绩单的公证件(附英语或德语翻译)。

10.德语或英语学时证明复印件,或申请人自学德/英语的学时数说明。

王晨馨问:“在准备文件上还有哪些要注意的?”

李玉翠说:“1.大学在读证明必须注明:通过何种形式被大学录取、大学的院、系名称、所学专业、学号、学制、学习起止时间、已读完的学期数,并由教务处或者档案室或者学籍管理办公室等校级部门盖章,只有系级盖章无效。”

2.如本科毕业却没有获得学位证书,需由高校出具未获得学位的说明,并提供原件。

3.大学成绩单必须包括大学期间所学全部课程的成绩,请不要遗漏任何一门课程,包括不及格的课程,请分学期开具,并由教务处或者档案室或者学籍管理办公室等校级部门盖章,只有系级盖章无效。

4.以上材料可以邮寄或直接到审核部前台递交。

5.以上所指公证件均为有德文或英文翻译的公证原件。(详情请咨询当地公证处)

6.审核部有可能要求某些申请人额外提供其他材料。

王晨馨问:“据说德国大学没有学士学位,大学学生可以直接攻读硕士学位,是真的吗?”

李玉翠说:“这是过去的传统,1999年以来,在德国的大学,开设了2000多个国际学士和硕士课程。这些国际学位课程,6到8个学期完成一个学士学位,再花2到4年完成硕士学位。现在学士学位和硕士学位课程已经达到德国大学开设课程的35%,到2010年,他们计划把所有传统学位替换掉。关于这点,以后我再详细谈。”

王晨馨说:“据说德国教育的中等教育阶段,有三种平行但是不同类型的学校。”

李玉翠说:“是的。和大多数工业国家的教育制度相比,德国的教育制度有三个不同的特点。你说的是其中之一。第二,有一种被称为“双轨制度”的职业培训,同时在工作场所和职业学校进行。第三,大多数的德国高等教育学校和学院都是公立的,不收取学费。”“纯艺术专业学生、音乐、舞蹈专业的学生怎样申请?我有一个好朋友是学习艺术专业的。”“他们必须去德国,在相应院校参加入学考试。他们不用参加审核面试。当然,他们也只能在德国艺术院校或音乐学院就读,如果艺术类学生希望进入德国其它大学学习,则必须参加普通审核程序‘一般申请人程序’或材料审核程序。”New Words and Expressions

_______________________________________Dec.12th,2011,Monday, Cloudy Interview

Interview time is 3:30 p. m.It is 1 p.m.Wang Chenxin is in Starbucks in Wangfujing Street.In an international call, she asks Li Yucui:“I am going to my interview.A little nervous.What shall I pay attentton to?”

“The best way is the honest way. 6.800 Euros should be ready to deposit in the Germany Bank in Beijing.You can draw 700 to 800 Euros a month after you start your studying in a Germany university.You should show your ffnancial power-the job of your parents, your saving and how much they can earn a month.They will ask about your ability of foreign language.Do not forget to tell them your TOEFL scores.The relattve certtffcate should be ready in your bag.You should be proud of your English.You should be able talk about what you have learnt in each program.”

“Yes, I have tried to outline my programs and some key items of my chief programs such as linguistics, British and American Literature by heart.”

“That is great. You will make it.I am sure.”

“Thank you so much.”

Wang Chenxin walks out Liangmaqiao Statton of Subway Line 10.It takes her 7 minutes to the front of Liangma Building.She enters an elevator.There are already two girls and a boy in it.They are talking about the interviews they took last ttme, in which they failed.It is Room 11.They walk in, show their ID, store their bags and mobile in a box, sit in sofa and wait for their turn.Wang Chenxin is quiet while everybody else talks about APS interview.A Shanghai boy comes with his mommy affer he has failed for three ttmes in his interview and has no chance to have his APS certtffcate.His mommy wants to know exact reasons.A young girl says:“In the internet, I read a piece of information on the interview.Someone who has such an experience says you should talk more in your introductton so that they will ask you less because of ttme limit.”A boy says:“I am afraid that is recittng.It should not be a western way.Western people want you to react acttvely and give more cases and examples to show your understanding of what you have learnt.”There is a long screen over the service table to show the sequencein Chinese.Wang Chenxin tries hard to be easy.A tall German granny comes and asks in a low voice:“Who is Wang Chenxin?Come in.”

Following her, Wang Chenxin walks in a small room for written test. There are several dictionaries in the bookshelf.The test is on her major-educatton for 20 minutes.Before she ffnishes her paper, the granny knocks at the door.Her heart suddenly beats fast.Li Yucui ever told her quite a lot of people was not able to ffnish the paper and it
