hey you know what
我刚刚看香港新闻,有一个法国人到北京旅游想看看将有奥运会的北京,他最先到北京天坛,买票都没有问题,售票员都能说英语,街上也有义务的翻译人员帮助,可是他想吃东西,可是餐厅里的餐牌只有中文他看不懂,服务员听见英语后都走开,旁边的美国华人看不过走来帮助他,他最后能够吃到北京传统的拉面.他到地铁,地铁都有英语没有问题,但他觉得北京人太没有礼貌,上落车时都争先恐后.
报道说北京最先要改进的是人民的素质!

OHNO 真棒,希望你能够为国人争光!

请有没有人帮我翻译我这番说话!

Actually , the tiny thing isn't my concern. Something saddens me after I read this article from Yanglan's blog.


"他要Sex?! 杨澜:08奥运会我最担心国人的语言 " -- 杨澜博客
2008奥运会临近了,我一点不担心场馆的建设,交通、空气啊,我想这些都会管理得很好。但恐怕语言会有问题--并不是每个人会说Hello,Good-bay就行了,而需要更深层次的交流。

五一期间,我陪几位美国朋友先去敦煌,后又去丽江。到了丽江,一位美国朋友要等一个传真,就和酒店的服务生说:我要我的FAX。大概是服务生的语言没有过关,所以一开始没明白什么意思,后来突然恍然大悟,说:我知道老外要什么了,他要Sex。就在他的房间里放了一些避孕套,弄得我这位朋友哭笑不得。所以说语言是很大的问题。

再有,就是思维方式的不同。比如说我刚去美国的时候,有点不习惯,就是我们在国内,向外国介绍中国的时候,总是说中国有"四大发明",有老子、孔子、孟子等,用这些来说明我们的文化。但我发现其实这很难说清楚。因为在国际通用的语言里,并没有"四大发明"这个固定词组。而其它重大的技术发明和科学原理的发现,还有很多,如果你给人讲,我们的孔子是如何重视"礼",如何重视"仁",如何普及了教育和文化。那么人家看到一个随地吐痰的中国人,在公共场合大声喧哗的中国人和在听音乐会时不关手机的中国人,恐怕给人家讲多少遍孔子和孟子也没用。
据统计文化一共有183种定义。其中有物质生活层面的,象景德镇的瓷器;有精神生活层面的,象我们的昆曲、京剧,武术。而更重要的,也是更直观的,应该是生活方式和思维方式这个层面的。

前不久,看了新闻,由斯皮尔伯格担任顾问,张艺谋、陈维亚担任导演的奥运会开、闭幕式的创作班底已经组成。我想他们遇到的最大的问题,并不是怎样展示一个正在腾飞的中国的气象,这并不难。展示古老文明的悠久也不难。最难的是,怎样让人家心动起来。不是说一万人的震耳欲聋的安塞锣鼓,就能打动人。而是现在的中国有什么能感动人。我觉得如果能做到这一点,东西方文明才真正达成一种交流。

中国人不懂得英语不是什么大不了,我们在自己的国家里生活不需要使用英语,所以不懂英语是非常之正常.
我想......相反地,外国人到来中国这个大国里,为何不准备一些语言工具,就这样买张机票?!
如果有人在法国用英语向法国人说话,法国人会理睬吗?

听错了更加不是可笑的事情呢,有什么奇怪的?!

Sen, read this. I devoted my summer break to volunteering in Havest Jazz and Blues Festival in Canada last year. In 2008, I probably use my vacation to do so. Many of my non-Chinese friends want to be Volunteers in China too. They are really warm-hearted.

Recruitment of Olympic volunteers to start in August 2006



The Beijing Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXIX Olympiad (BOCOG) released the "Action Plan of Beijing Olympic Volunteers" at the launching ceremony of Beijing Olympic Volunteer Program in Beijing on June 5.

Recruitment will start in August 2006 and end in April 2008.

As guidance for the formulation and implementation of the programs and operation plans included in the Beijing Olympic volunteer mission, the action plan was outlined based on "Beijing Olympic Action Plan" and the Beijing Olympic volunteer strategic plan.

It includes seven parts: preface, general principles, four volunteers projects -- "Towards Olympics" Voluntary Service, the Olympic Games-time Volunteer Project, the Paralympic Games-time Volunteer Project and the BOCOG Pre-Games Volunteer Project --, as well as safeguard for the Beijing Olympic volunteer mission.

The plan provides detailed definition of Olympic volunteer and introduction of the recruitment and selection, training, field practice in public-welfare undertakings, encouragement and reservation, posts as well as specific descriptions of volunteer program, its main tasks, objectives, personnel structure, norms of behavior and orientation.

In its work in the next stage, the BOCOG will, based on the action plan, press ahead with the work of the volunteer program in various fields in different phases to provide characteristic and high-standard voluntary services for the Beijing Olympic Games.

The plan estimates that altogether 100,000 volunteers will be needed to serve the 2008 Beijing Games, with 70,000 for the Summer Olympics and 30,000 for the Paralympics.

The volunteers will be categorized as specialized and non-specialized, composed of 10 groups i.e. university students, high-school students, those from all walks of life, those from various regions on the mainland, those in venues outside Beijing, those from Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan, overseas Chinese, foreigners in Beijing, international volunteers and specialized volunteers.

The process of the recruitment includes application, examination of application, preliminary assignment and interview, initial post arrangement, sending enrollment notification, acceptance of assignment by volunteers, verification of volunteers' background.

The recruitment will combine fixed recruitment with that among the general public, combine collective application with individual application, as well as combine online application with written application. An efficient mechanism will be established to recruit volunteers from certain groups in different stages according to relevant processes.

The plan also expounds the qualifications of the volunteers: applicants should abide by China's laws and regulations and should be enthusiastic in public-welfare undertakings; they should have basic knowledge on sports and some foreign-language skills; they should be eligible for the posts they apply and for BOCOG's requirement on the schedule of the posts. Apart from the basic requirements mentioned above, specialized volunteers should master the professional techniques and special skills required on particular posts.

奥运脚步日近 北京“软硬兼施”忙个不停 ---中新社

8月8日晚8时,当奥运倒计两周年的钟声在北京敲响时,很快它就将被隆隆震耳的宏大建设的声音所淹没。这个城市正在“软硬兼施”,全力打造一个新首都,以迎接两年后那个激动人心的时刻的到来。

  据中新社报导,8000多个专案、9000多个工地、10000来个塔吊、1点4亿平方米建筑面积……眼下正在进行的北京城改造,无疑是中国继建筑长城以来最昂贵、最庞大的工程。

  许多人相信,当2008年8月8日那天真的来临时,古老的北京城将变得更加现代化,更加有活力。事实上,变化,已经悄无生息地在北京的每片土地上,以不可思议的速度发生。

  这种飞速的变化让北京的地图和黄页的“寿命”越来越短了。一张北京地图的生命力已从2001年之前的一版图能用3年,“缩短”到如今的3个月。一本北京黄页的寿命也由过去的两年缩短为一年。

  去年之前还存在的149个城中村,在今年的地图上已经找不到了,取而代之的是一座座摩天大楼和一片片绿地。聪明的地图设计者已经将北京日新月异的变化逐一显示在新版地图上。规划中的奥林匹克公园、正在建设中的中关村西区、城市轻轨铁路、地铁五号线、“鸟巢”、“水立方”、“巨蛋”等重大工程项目都已被“画”到了地图上。

  有外电评论说:中国首都正在经历一种根本性的变化,而这种变化是每个大城市通常只会经历一次的,比如到处都有宽阔的林荫大道的现代巴黎就是在19世纪初形成的。

  美国律师、北京古建筑专家龙安志说:“这比其他一切都更重要。”他说:“自从忽必烈13世纪创建这座城市以来,这是迄今为止最全面彻底的改变。”

  尽管北京的交通依然害怕暴雨的袭击,尽管北京并未彻底根治沙尘暴。但这个城市的决心已经坚如盘石。北京已决定奥运前在城市基础设施建设中投入1800亿元人民币,其中900亿用于修地铁、轻轨、高速公路、机场等,450亿用于环境治理。

  同时,官方也意识到,比摩天大楼更难建设的是软环境。因此,从2001年以来,以“迎奥运、讲文明、树新风”、“为祖国争光,为奥运添彩”等为主题的宣传活动一直在市民中广泛展开。

  媒体也以大篇幅长年累月地宣传“礼仪新三字经”,教市民如何与人握手、交谈乃至使用筷子,内容涉及生活礼仪、社交礼仪、文明观赛礼仪、职业礼仪、校园礼仪、涉外礼仪。办一次奥运,与全球握手、对话,正在令北京人经历一次震撼的文化和文明洗礼。

Yanglan's problem is that she seems to think that US is the only country on earth (just like a lot of other Americans, no offence). Human being is rich in diversity, so please don't suggest that American way is the way for all others.

that's right,why don't Yanglan and her american friend respect or try to respect Chinese 中国话,why didn't they bring a dictionary to make the waiter understand them!
Yanglan's joke is going to hurt the waiter!
