EDUCATION REPORT - In Class With Peace Corps Volunteers in Africa, Asia

This is the VOA Special English Education Report.

This week marks the fiftieth anniversary of the Peace Corps. President John Kennedy began the program in nineteen sixty-one. The Peace Corps sends American volunteers to provide technical assistance in education and other areas in developing countries.

这周是美国和平部队第五十个周年纪念日。这个计划是 1961 年肯尼迪总统建立的。这个和平部队派美国的志愿者给发展中国家在教育和其他领域提供科技帮助。

Amanda Pease is one of almost forty volunteers serving in rural schools in Sierra Leone.

阿曼达其在里昂农村学校服务的十四个志愿者之一。

Ms. Peace teaches science at Saint Joseph's, a high school in eastern Sierra Leone. She studied chemical engineering at the University of California, Los Angeles. She decided to serve for two years in the Peace Corps after she finished her degree.

和平女生在一所高中教科学。她原本在加利福尼亚大学教化学工程。在她完成她的学位之前她决定在和平部队里服务两年。

AMANDA PEASE: "I was trying to decide between going the academic route and doing a postdoctoral degree and go into industry, and then I had been doing some volunteer work and the idea was kind of always of floating around."

我正在在走学生路线和读博士后之间做决定,然后我又一直在做志愿者,所以我的想法总是在变化。

Peace Corps volunteers left Sierra Leone in nineteen ninety-four because of civil war. But now they are back.

因为内乱志愿者在一九九四年离开了科尼亚但现在他们又回来了。

Science teachers are in especially short supply. Efforts in Sierra Leone to get more children through primary school have led to crowded high schools.

科学老师特别短缺,让更多孩子上小学的努力已经导致了高中的拥挤。

Amanda Pease is the only chemistry and physics teacher at her school. She says she has to work hard to get students more interested in learning, as she thought they would be.

在她的学校阿曼达是进有的化学和科学老师。她说她必须努力工作以使更多的对学校感兴趣,她也认为他们会的。

AMANDA PEASE: "I kind of had sort of a romantic idea coming to a developing country where everyone is super motivated but just does not have opportunities, and that is not exactly how it is. Not that I am saying the opportunities are so great, because of course there [are] limited opportunities if you compare it to America, but I think one of the biggest things is literally just motivation."

 我也有一些不切实际的想法,来到发展中国家,那儿的每个人都是很积极地,只是她们没有机会,但是现状完全不是这样。并不是说机会是重要的,因为假如和美国比起来课程限制了他们的机会,但是我认为其中一个最大的事情从表面上看正是积极性。

What she loves best about her experience, she says, is the magical moment when students understand a chemical process or ask her for more exercises.

她说对于她经历的她最喜欢的是那种有魔力的时刻,学生理解了一个化学课程或者向她要更多的联系。

More than eight thousand Peace Corps volunteers are currently serving around the world. Volunteers become part of the community where they work and live. Travis Bluemling from Pennsylvania teaches English in a rural Indonesian community.

超过八千个志愿者目前服务在全世界。志愿者变成了他们工作和生活的社区的一部分。特拉维斯在农村地区教英语。

TRAVIS BLUEMLING: "Even if some of these kids can't get to college, learning English and at least having some knowledge of the language can separate themselves from the people next to them when they are looking for a job or meeting people."

 即使一些孩子不能上大学,但是学习英语或者至少有一门语言不至于让他们与和他们相似的人相隔离当他们找工作或会见某人的时候。

Mr. Bluemling's family expressed concern for his safety in a country where Islamic militants have sometimes attacked Westerners. But what concerned him, he says, was the thought that leaders in his village might not welcome him.

他的家人对他的安全担忧因为激进分子有时袭击西方人。但是使他担心的是村长不欢迎他们。

TRAVIS BLUEMLING: "However, I could not have been more wrong. They have allowed me to enter their house. I joined them in their Muslim meetings. I joined them with fasting and I have even entered the mosque."

但是我也不必太担心。他们已经允许我进入他们的房子。在他们的教会中我加入了他们。我和他们融入很快并且我曾经进入过清真寺。

In addition to Indonesia, Peace Corps volunteers in East Asia serve in China, Thailand, Cambodia, Mongolia and the Philippines.

除了印度尼西亚志愿者在亚洲还服务于中国、泰国、柬埔寨、蒙古以及非礼宾。

And that's the VOA Special English Education Report. If you have a Peace Corps story to share, go to www.unsv.com or post a comment on our Facebook page at VOA Learning English. I'm Steve Ember.
