【美国V视讯】 在全球新冠肺炎流行期间,隔离已成为常态,但位于新泽西州的一个青少年组织利用这个机会促进了中国和美国之间的文化交流。该组织由RutgersPreparatory School的两名高中生于2020年3月成立,旨在减少教育不平等并促进文化交流。“通过克服语言障碍和提高文化意识,我们可以将来自世界各地的人联系起来,”共同创始人宋恬然说。

文化桥聚集了一群对于教学和文化交流充满了热情的高中生志愿者们。从美国东海岸,西海岸,及中部到加拿大,欧洲,和澳洲,来自世界各地的小老师们都对教学和与孩子们建立友谊充满了热情。通过一年多的努力,文化桥的志愿者团队已经超过一百人,累计教学了超过两百名学生,达成了3000多个小时的社会公益服务。

文化桥的第六期公益英语教学活动已在七月初开始。文化桥负责人宋恬然,胡樱,朱宇轩和凌子衿共同带领一百多名志愿者组织了为期八周的免费英语辅导课程。文化桥设有教学、课程开发、社交媒体管理以及翻译团队。志愿者们通过用英语向学生们介绍世界各地的文化,培养了孩子们对英语以及文化学习的兴趣。同时志愿者们也为许多欠发达地区的孩子们提供了更多英语教育的资源。通过分级测试,学生们会根据英语水平被分入初学者组,初级组,中级组或高级组。课程的形式以一对一或二对二进行,长度为半小时到一个小时不等。他们的课程旨在为学生们创造与美国本土英语教学相似的学习经历。课堂也更加注重孩子的参与度以及启发孩子们的批判性思考能力,让孩子多说,多练习。每一期培训结束,团队都会根据反馈,对课程内容进行改进,并尝试通过不同学科的切入培养孩子们对英语学习的兴趣。从最初根据现有的教材进行教学,到现在每一期使用课程开发团队自主编制的教材,文化桥在每一期的活动中吸取经验,一步步完善课程。

“我一直对文学充满热情。通过文化桥,我可以与他人分享这些作品”,朱宇轩说。“作为领导者和老师,我见证了文化桥如何通过关于神话、科技和格莱美奖等主题的个性化课程来激发学生们对各国文化的兴趣。”

“最初我们的团队只有十多人。经过我们对项目不断的完善和学生家长们积极的宣传,我们的团队渐渐壮大”,共同创始人胡樱说。文化桥的志愿者们累计付出了超过3000小时的社区服务时间,并得到了学生和家长的好评。

“谢谢,你们组织的真的很棒。我来自农村,没有英语基础所以没有办法去教孩子,孩子上英语课外班有些题我也不会辅导。这里没有语言环境,孩子如果英语差他以后就会对英语抵触,对英语就越来越没有信心。真的希望孩子能向你们一样走出去,变得和你们一样优秀。幸好有你们。” —— Alfred家长

“除了促进文化交流之外,我们还希望进一步帮助来自欠发达地区教育资源有限的学生们”,胡樱说。除了网课辅导,作为梦想起航项目(DreamStart)的一部分,文化桥及其在Ridge高中的分部组织了各种筹款活动,并捐赠了超过1500美元(约合9710人民币)的资金来支持贫困儿童的教育。

从在学生、家长、志愿者和捐助者的持续支持下,文化桥团队希望能在新冠肺炎流行期间和往后继续他们的教学计划和筹款活动。

“希望通过网络以及新闻媒体让更多人可以看到我们文化桥创始人们的初心和所有志愿者们的热情,以及我们致力于为教育事业与文化交流出一份力决心,”文化桥项目市场推广总监傅歆玥说。

【Teen-Led Organization Provides Free Cultural Education During Pandemic】


Somerset, NJ - Quarantine and isolation have become the norm during the global COVID-19 pandemic, but a teen-led organization based in New Jersey has used this as an opportunity to foster cultural connections. The organization was founded in early March of 2020 by two high schoolers Tianran Song and Jennifer Hu from Rutgers Preparatory School to mitigate the pandemic’s disruption of education.


Although inspired by the issues that arose from the COVID-19 pandemic, their broader goal is to decrease educational inequality and foster intercultural dialogue. “By overcoming educational barriers and raising cultural awareness, we can connect people from all parts of the world and every walk of life,” says Tianran. And they have, through various programs and initiatives, Cultural Bridge has reached over 2000 people across 5 continents.


Recently, the sixth eight-week session of their English tutoring program began. Together, the co-founders and rising seniors Richard Zhu from the Peddie School, and Christine Ling from Ridge High School lead a group of over 100 tutors, curriculum developers, social media coordinators, and translators in organizing Cultural Bridge tutoring sessions that are

free-of-charge. The program uses lessons centered around common American literature and simple word games in order to teach students from underserved areas across the globe about the English language and American culture. Students are sorted into four different levels based on their English proficiency and paired with volunteer tutors for one-on-one lessons.


“I have always been passionate about American literature and poetry, and through Cultural Bridge I can share the magic of these writings with others,” says Richard Zhu. “Being both a leader and a tutor, I have seen firsthand how individualized lessons on topics like mythology, technology, and the Grammys have catalyzed student interest in the unique culture of the United States.”


"In the beginning, our team consisted of only less than fifteen people. After our continuous improvement and thanks to the promotion by our students and their parents, our team has gradually grown," says Ying (Jennifer) Hu. In total, over 3000 community service hours have been awarded through the tutoring program and the program has received great feedback from students and parents.


“Thank you. I’m from rural China. I value education, but there is no language learning environment here. I don't know English so there is no way for me to teach my son. My son was losing his confidence and resisted learning English. Fortunately, we met tutors from Cultural Bridge. My son learned so much and stepped out of his comfort zone to speak English.”—— Alfred's father, Parent Translated by Tianran)


“In addition to fostering cultural exchange, we wanted to further aid students from underserved areas with limited educational resources, '' says Ying (Jennifer) Hu. In addition to tutoring, as part of the DreamStart initiative, Cultural Bridge and its chapter at Ridge High School has in total donated more than $1500 to support the education of underprivileged children through various fundraisers.


The team looks to continue their tutoring program and fundraising initiatives during and after the pandemic with the continued support of students, parents, volunteers and contributors.


“Through the Internet and other digital media, we hope that more people can learn about the passion that our executive directors and volunteer staff have for the Cultural Bridge initiative. We hope to, through these media, convey our unwavering faith in the power of teaching and cultural exchange,” says Ariel Fu, Director of Marketing.
