 With EBSC, Christmas can be far more cheerful!

December 24th, 2019

This year’s Christmas Eve, Yuan Ze University EBSC students brought their handmade Christmas cards and gifts to Taoyuan Guanyin Bosheng elementary school to celebrate Christmas together.
These students, guided by Programming and Design class’s professor, Jeffrey Sebastian, the EBSC’s Director, Kazuaki Nakazawa, and the EBSC’s Trilingual Assistant, Annie Wu, use the skills taught in the class and also their creativity to make beautiful cards by themselves. 
According to Professor Jeffrey Sebastian, there are three purposes of this event. 
First, creating something special to make an ordinary life different and unique. Second, the both groups of the students can learn mutually. The elementary school children can learn English through our activities. At the same time, we also learn how to organize and manage this event and the activities! Moreover, teaching children precious knowledge and playing with them joyfully are the most important thing. Third, bringing love and care to children and let them know the meaning of Christmas. 
Director of EBSC, Professor Nakazawa, said that this activity involved students from different countries, and the children were able to interact with the foreigners to expand their horizons. In particular, our activities were mainly conducted in English. Therefore, children could experience intercultural communication when interacting with the EBSC foreign students.
eSwatini students studying in EBSC at Yuan Ze University said that this is the first time to participate in such a great event and felt extremely meaningful. They also would like to participate next year as well.
The music teacher who just came to Bosheng Elementary School mentioned that this is the first time to join in our Christmas event. It was very special to see YZU students coming to Bosheng Elementary School and the children having a lot of fun during this event.
The third-grade teacher at Bosheng Elementary School said there had several Christmas events before, but EBSC students manage events in a unique way. Their activities are not only unique every year but also made us looking forward to the next time.
The director of Student Affairs in Bosheng Elementary School said that because of the gap between teachers and students, it is hard for them to play together. Therefore, today the college students come to have fun with children, they are really happy and full of pleasant memories. Actually, before the EBSC Christmas celebration at Bosheng Elementary School, they barely celebrated Christmas. He, now, is so glad to have such a special opportunity! Besides, if there are other special festivals in the future, everyone from EBSC is welcome to celebrate them with Bosheng Elementary School children and to keep amazing them and creating beautiful memories together!
The most impressive thing is that, at the end of the event, while children were holding handmade cards and gifts and said "Be sure to come again next time!" with bright smiles!
After this activity, we believe that the elementary school children learned a lot, and we hope that there will be more opportunities for cooperation in the near future so that children can learn more about different cultures.

英為有你 聖誕不孤單

今年元智大學人文社會學院英語學士班的學生帶著手工卡片和禮物來到桃園觀音區保生國小一起度過聖誕節🎄希望透過這次的活動帶給偏鄉學童們聖誕節的歡樂!
由電腦設計繪圖教師雷傑以及系主任中澤ㄧ亮帶領前往,利用學生在課堂上用到的技巧再加上同學們的創意與巧思,做出漂亮的卡片,送給小朋友。
雷傑老師表示,辦這次活動的目的有三個。第一:創造特別的事讓平凡的生活變得不同而新鮮。第二:雙向的學習,讓孩子們透過有趣的遊戲,從玩樂中學習英文,同時,我們也能夠學習到如何組織、辦理活動以及教導孩子們與他們共同玩樂。第三:希望在這個聖誕節,帶給偏鄉的孩子們愛與關懷!
而中澤主任則表示,此次活動,有來自不同國家的學生參與,孩子們能夠與外國人接觸並開拓視野、增廣見聞。尤其是我們的活動主要是以英文進行,讓孩子們能儘早能夠體驗到國際化的世界!
在人社英專就讀的史瓦濟蘭學生表示,這次是第一次參與這樣的活動,覺得很新鮮以及有趣,如果有機會,下次還想要參與。
剛來保生國小就職的音樂老師表示是第一次參與我們的聖誕節活動。看到大學生們來到保生國小覺得非常特別而且小朋友們也十分開心的玩遊戲!
保生國小就職的三年級老師表示之前就一直有這個聖誕節活動,每一次都有一些不一樣的活動,令人期待下一次。
保生國小訓導組長表示由於師生之間年齡差距較大,如果是大學生來帶小朋友的話,小朋友都們會較開心以及充滿活力。在人社英專拜訪之前,其實保生國小較少過聖誕節,所以很開心有如此特別的機會!以後如有其他特別節日,也歡迎人社英專的大家來創造下一個美好的回憶!
在活動的尾聲,小朋友們拿著手工卡片和精心準備的禮物,笑容燦爛的對著我們說:「下次一定還要再來喔!」。
經過此次活動,相信孩子們一定收穫豐富,希望未來還能有更多合作機會,讓孩子們接觸並學習到更多不同的文化。
