今天是陰雨綿綿又只有
10度低溫的日子,經過了歷時一個多月的準備與連絡,我們終於要踏上前往宜蘭湖山國小的道路,早上七點中在忠孝新生捷運站前集合,往常總是遲到的我因為住在一個超級準時的Jully小姐家,所以今天出乎意外的早到,但是‥為何都不見人影呢?難道是我們等錯地方了?還是我們的手錶壞了?等了一會看到鴨蛋兄從捷運站走出,我們著急的心才放鬆了下來,原來大家都還沒來阿!
 
約在華南銀行前,因為氣溫實在太低了,寒風一直迎面吹來,我忽然發現轉角有一個24小時ATM櫃檯櫥窗,提議進去裡面避風寒,本來只有我、Jully、鴨蛋,後來大家陸陸續續地來了,小小的櫥窗裡擠滿了我們Hello UK!的夥伴,不知情的路人說不定還以為我們要集體作壞事呢!好不容易全部人都集合完畢,哇!已經七點半了呢!我們要快點趕去宜蘭,開始我們這次的『Hello X’mas』啦!

Our Hello UK! English Camp members all work in different fields; we have different life with different friends. We are all here because we were all studying in UK. After we came back to Taiwan, we hold a lot forgathers just in order to meet more friends who have same experience. When the group is getting bigger and bigger, we are all thinking what we can do for our homeland. We are willing to give and we’ve discussed many ways to help others. However, it’s very difficult to find something in common in this group. Finally, we found that all of us can speak in English. Therefore, teaching English sounds the best way to contribute to the Taiwanese society. We have started with no funding at all, all members came out with their own resources to make it happen. Someone provided printing papers, someone bought colour pens, some people don’t know how to teach but they came here to drive us to school. In this English Camp, we contributed our love to children, and we got a lot of feedback from children’s smile. In this group, many of us work like dog but they don’t really enjoy their life, but… when we saw those children’s naïve smile… it’s just the best feedback.

There were 18 of us went to Da Shu primary school which is in E-land a few weeks ago. We hope children can learn English without any pressure. We want they all know that English is a language for communication, just like Mandarin. English is for our daily life to use, not for exams. I still remembered that time I taught them “ABC”, they have learned very quickly then I decided to play a game with them. When I picked a letter of “M”, one of children said that is Mcdonalds’“M”, then we played role play, I told them that they were customers, and I was the waitress in Mcdonalds. They have to tell me what they want to order. It’s so funny that they learn a lot of vocabularies about food, so… if one day, they really go to UK or other countries. I believe they won’t starve because of the language issue.

Now, our Hello UK! English Camp wants to go to as many remote districts as we can. To help more children to develop an interest in English, but it’s really cost a lot of money to do so. Therefore we have to get some funding to support our English Camp. We were lucky to get St. Andrews University’s funding last time, and we’ve also joined and won Johnnie Walker’s “keep walking”project. It’s a great achievement.

對我來說,能付出是一種幸福!從小在環境優渥的空間下長大,從來沒接觸過太多的貧苦,我從來無法了解,原來世上有各式各樣的生活型態存在...

在我的成長過程中,我似乎很少聽到有人家裡"貧苦",有人"家庭暴力",有人家人為了某種原因自殺...這對我來說...是一個完全不同的世界...在我大學時,我認識了一些和我生活背景全然不同的朋友,我才知道...原來自己有多麼幸福~我可以不用為家庭生計煩惱,我可以盡情地享受我的求學生涯,我可以擁有一大群愛我在乎我的人...可是...原來這些對我來說微不足道的事,對社會上的許多人來說是永遠難以達到的境地.
