Yo what’s going on guys? Today I am hereto bring you another video about my life in American high school, and my topic todayis about the culture. I want to share my thoughts towards cultures with you.

大家好!今天我给大家带来的视频仍是关于我在美国高中学习生活的。今天的主题是“文化”,我想和大家分享一下自己关于“文化”的看法。

 

After coming to the US, I found thiscountry very different from my motherland, China.

来到美国之后,我发现它和我的祖国(中国)有非常大的不同。

 

Here is an interesting example.

以下就是一个有趣的例子。

 

Once during history class, the teacher wasdiscussing about an identity named “Harambe”, and people started saying “RIPHarambe”. I was really confused and asked one of my friends, “Who is that guy?”He was very surprised of me not knowing this, because everyone else knew thisinformation from somewhere. The truth was: during late May of 2016, achimpanzee named Harambe in Cincinnati Zoo was trying to save a child who fellinto a river in the animal zone. One of the zoo workers shot Harambe and killedhim to save the child. This incident was known for almost everyone, however Iwas sadly not informed.

有一次上历史课,老师让大家讨论“Harambe”的主题。同学们开始说“RIP Harambe”,我真的很困惑,于是就问一个朋友:“那个人是谁啊?”我朋友感到非常的惊讶,因为其他人都知道这个故事。事实情况是:2016年5月下旬,在辛辛那提动物园里,一只叫做Harambe的黑猩猩试图挽救在动物园区里落水的孩子;而一名动物园工作人员以为猩猩在害孩子,开枪打死了Harambe。美国班上每个人都知道这件事情,遗憾的是,我却没有一点概念。

 

Here is one another example of me notunderstanding the culture of America. During school dances, when pop or rapsongs come up, everyone seems to know all of the footsteps and all. However Ihave not either watched the music video on YouTube or listened to it on Spotilybefore, therefore I was clueless when the music was up. 

再举一个我不了解美国文化的例子。在学校舞蹈晚会活动里,当流行歌曲说唱音乐出现时,每个人似乎都知道跳舞的脚步和动作应该是怎么样的。我因为没有观看过YouTube上的音乐视频,或者没有在Spotily的网站上听过,当音乐响起来的时候,我真的很无助。

 

Maybe this is the gap between me and myfriends. No doubt that cultural differences are standing between me, my friendsand others, and ignorance towards their lives are making you saying awkwardthings and not getting their points…

这也许这是我和朋友之间的差别。毫无疑问,我、朋友和其他人之间的文化差异是事实存在的。而对他们的生活的不了解,让我说了很多尴尬的话,或无法正确理解其话语下的真正涵义......

 

All these kinds of things made me sad andembarrassed in the beginning, but I made it through. I am not saying that Iunderstood the western American culture well, but at least I put my effort intoit, and I tried my best. I didn’t live my first 12 years in this country, so Ithink that it is really not that shameful to not know things. And in thisvideo, I am going to share my life stories with you, so that when you go to andlive in a different country, you will at least know a little better at startinga normal life and get along with your friends.

一开始,这些事情让我感到难过和尴尬。但是我尽力地去融入。我并不是说自己对美国的文化了解得很清楚了,但至少我努力了,尽力而为了。事实上,我的前12年没有在这个国家生活过,我觉得,如果真的对一些事情不了解,那也并不可耻。在本视频中,我和大家分享我的故事和建议,这样,你到一个不同国家生活时,你就能更好地了解他们的日常生活,包括你也可以和朋友融洽相处。


One of the important things I concluded,is to treat them like normal. Don’t think people in America and other country areopen, weird, and tall and strong (even though some of them are like that),everyone is different, everyone has different personalities and thoughts, sothink through what you are going to say before talk it out.

我总结的一个要点就是:像对待普通人一样对待别人。不要以为外国人全都是开放的,或怪异的,或长得又高又壮(即使他们中的确有些人是这样)。其实,每个人都是不同的,每个人都有着不同的个性和思想,针对不同的人要有不同的话语。

 

I know a lot of people who have divorcedfamilies, including one of my first friends I made. I still remembered when Itold him: “It must be unfortunate and sad for you to have your parents apart.”He told me that he is living a happy life now. Parents are good friends and heeven gets to live in two homes! Now it is way better than his parents didn’tget divorced.

我认识很多离异家庭的人,包括我的第一个朋友。我仍然记得那时我问他的这句话:“你父母离婚了,你一定很不开心甚至很伤心吧?”他告诉我说,他现在过得很幸福。父母彼此间是好朋友,而他可以随便在哪个家里住!这远比父母不离婚要好得多。

 

These examples above are just very fewthings that happened in my life. After countless awkward conversations andsituations I encountered because of lack of knowledge of this culture, Irealized that it was needed to be actively engaged more.

以上例子只是我生活中的一小部分。在经历无数尴尬的交谈,以及由于缺乏对当地文化的了解而遇到状况后,我意识到自己需要主动去积极融入。

 

Like I said above, there is no shame ofnot knowing something of their culture, because you didn’t spend your first tenyears in their place. Don’t be afraid of asking them questions too. You will behappy to answer questions from a foreigner about Chinese culture when you arein China, right? I am sure that the Americans will feel the same way too!

我前面有提到,如果你不懂得他们的文化情况,不要觉得有什么不妥,因为你并没有花上10年的时间来学习。不要害怕向他们提问。事实上,在国内,你肯定也很乐意回答外国人关于中国文化的问题,对吗?我相信美国人也是如此,他们愿意回答你的问题!


Another thing is: don’t make stereotypes.Never make your complete impression of one just because something they havedone. I used to not talk to a particular person just because that person waswearing something that I do not like to see. However, after a chance of gettingto know that person deeper and better, I now know that he was a kind person,and a great friend as well.

此外,不要擅下定论,不要因为他们所做的事情而给他们定型印象。我以前不和某位同学说话,因为他一直穿着我不喜欢的那种类型的衣服。然而,在有机会深入了解这个人之后,我知道他是一个善良的人,也是一位很好的朋友。

 

In addition, travel! One of the best waysto experience and understand other cultures is to actually live among them. Itmight take a while to save for, but planning a trip overseas to a countryyou’re interested in can be the best way of opening yourself up to newcultures.

当然,旅行也非常重要!体验和理解其他文化的最好方法之一就是生活其中。当然,去到那个你感兴趣的国家可能需要一段时间来准备或计划,但它可能你了解新文化的最好方式。

 

The last thing here is, interact with yourfriends, enjoy various activities with them, and talk to them about their oryour concerns, and share your life experiences with them. I am sure that mostof them are willing to listen and enjoy the time being with you.

最后一点,多与你的朋友互动,一起享受各种活动,一起交流他们的或你的顾虑,分享你的生活经验。我相信他们大多数人都愿意倾听和享受的。

 

Till now, I still have a lot of things tolearn about this culture, and I often make awkward conversations too! However,there is no stop for learning, so I watch many movies, read books, and TV showsduring free time, but I know that these are just basics. People I know and talkto, are more important than anything else.

我知道,要了解美国的文化,我还有许多东西要学。我还常常会有一些尴尬的对话,然而,我的学习却不能停止。在空闲时,我会看电影,看书和看电视节目。我知道这些只是最基本的,而最最重要的是人,要和真实的人多多交流。

 

Alright, let’s end it here today, thanksfor watching guys, if you have thoughts about my video, leave a like andcomment, and I will see you next time.
