41日,坎特伯雷大学孔子学院 与中国驻克莱斯特彻奇市总领馆共同举办第十届“汉语桥”世界中学生演讲比赛。来自南岛两个分赛区的19名优胜选手参加了此次全南岛的最终角逐,百余名学生家长及亲朋好友前来助威。中国驻克赖斯特彻奇总领事金智建、教育领事翟建军、新西兰坎特伯雷地区民族多样性促进会办公室顾问张侃蒂(Candy Zhang)出席颁奖典礼并致辞。

此次比赛由主题演讲、知识问答和才艺表演三个环节组成。此次演讲的主题是学会中国话,朋友遍天下。演讲过程中,选手们纷纷讲述自己与汉语和中国的情缘。分享自己对中国文化从好奇到了解和迷恋的过程。一位来自(Middleton Grange School) 的高中生马蒂森˙米拉(Madison Millar) 在演讲中说道:“学中文让我交到很多的中国朋友,今年我们家和基督城的一个中国家庭一起庆祝中国新年。我们都非常喜欢中国文化,现在我的爸爸、妈妈也开始在坎大孔院上中文夜校课。”在才艺表演环节,大家都绞尽脑汁让自己的才艺中国文化相关,有现学现卖的剪纸、有钢琴弹奏的《熊猫》、有小提琴演奏的民谣《茉莉花》、有清唱的中国歌曲《月亮代表我的心》,还有伴随着中国古典乐曲的扇子舞,这些异彩纷呈的展示一次次将赛场的氛围推向高潮。

经过紧张激烈的角逐,此次比赛共选出五名高中组学生前往奥克兰参加新西兰汉语桥全国赛。来自坎特伯雷大学的学生拉森˙泰勒(Nathan Taylor)荣获大学组第一名,将代表新西兰坎特伯雷大学孔子学院前往中国参加全球总决赛。

比赛结束之后就是颁奖典礼。在颁奖典礼上,主持人麦克˙博瑞(Michael Perry)跟大家分享他去年去中国长沙观看全球汉语桥总决赛的经历时说道:学中文,说汉语不仅会给大家很多的机会,还可以让大家交到更多的朋友。去年去长沙参加汉语桥全球决赛的选手来自一百多个不同的国家,我们有不同的成长背景、语言背景、文化背景,千万种不同种中的相同就是我们都会说中国话。汉语是一座无形的桥,沟通着来自不同文化背景的你我他。

在嘉宾致辞中,新西兰坎特伯雷地区民族多样性促进会办公室顾问张侃蒂(Candy Zhang)说:新西兰鼓励民族文化多样性,乐见越来越多的新西兰人学习中文。金智建总领事援引了新西兰教育部公布的数据,说:目前整个新西兰全国共有三百多所中小学开设了汉语课,中文已经成为新西兰最受欢迎的外语,以后也将有越来越多的学校开设汉语课。学好汉语对大家来说无疑会带来更多的机会和选择。与此同时,大家也都是沟通中国人民与新西兰人民的重要桥梁,促进了中新之间的友谊。



   “Learn Chinese to make more friends”

On April 1, the Confucius Institute at the University of Canterbury (CIUC), New Zealand together with the Consul-General of the People’s Republic of China at Christchurch held the 10th Chinese Bridge Competition finals for the South Island at Lincoln High School. 19 competitors, from all over the South Island, entered this final round. More than one hundred students’ parents and relatives came to the competition venue to support their children.  The Chinese Consul-General, JIN Zhijian, Chinese Education-Consul Zhai Jianjun and Diversity and Engagement Adviser from the New Zealand Office of Ethnic Communities Candy Zhang also presented awards at the ceremony and gave speeches.

The topic for this year’s competition was “ 学会中国话,朋友遍天下” (Learn Chinese to make more friends). Each competitor had three components to their performance: speech, questions and answers and talent show. One of the judges from senior category said that it was very hard to decide who the best was, because they all did a great job. For the talent show section, students thought very hard about how they could give a talent performance that was in some way related to Chinese culture. One of the students gave a violin solo of “茉莉花 (Jasmine Flower)”, a well-known Chinese tune, another sang the famous Chinese song “月亮代表我的心 (The moon represents my heart)”, another one performed a Chinese folk dance to a classical Chinese music. All their speeches and performances were applauded by the audience and acknowledged by the judges.

Finally, five students from senior category were selected to represent the South Island at the New Zealand national competition. Nathan Taylor from the University of Canterbury will represent CIUC to attend the worldwide competition which will be held in China.

Michael Perry from the University of Canterbury also shared his experience of  the worldwide Chinese Bridge Competition in China during the award ceremony. He said he made lots of friends from all over the world when he was in China. “We all grew up in different cultural backgrounds and spoke different languages but Chinese brought us together.”

Candy Zhang from the office of Ethnic Communities said New Zealand was encouraging of diversity and urged more students to study Chinese and learn about Chinese culture. Chinese Consul- General JIN Zhijian quoted statistics from the New Zealand Ministry of Education and said “More than 300 schools in New Zealand have now started Chinese courses and Chinese has become one of the most welcome foreign languages. The trend to open more Chinese courses is still increasing which means that there are more opportunities those of you who can speak Chinese, besides you all contribute to strenthening the tie between China and New Zealand.”
