1 Jun Yi and students in kitchen Residence  

Hello, 大家好,我是仪俊
Hello, everyone. I'm Jun Yi.

很高兴在这里与大家分享我在University of Sudbury 宿舍的一些经历。
I'm so glad to share my living experience at the University of Sudbury.

首先我要强烈地推荐University of Sudbury Residence. 为什么呢? 我在这里有一段非常愉快和难忘的经历。
Firstly, I’d highly recommend the University of Sudbury Residence. Why? Because I had a super happy and eventful experience while living here.

这里就更像是一个大家庭一样。Gisele 和 Annette 她们就像是家长竭尽全力为每个学生解决生活上的难题。
I would say it’s a home rather than a residence. Gisele and Annette are like our parents trying their best to solve every student’s living issues.

其次,每一个人都有一个私密的空间,但是开放式的厨房,活动区域,以及各个重要节日的庆祝活动又能使每个学生,特别是留学生, 减少他们的思乡和孤独情绪,帮助他们更好地融入到当地文化当中。

Secondly, everyone has their private space, but the public kitchen, lounges, as well as the celebrations and activities held for all important occasions enable everyone, especially international students, to mitigate their feeling of homesickness and loneliness.

然后在新冠病毒这样一个特殊的时期,我非常感激宿舍和当地的一些组织,他们对学生提供了精神疏导和定期的免费食物捐赠。
We were looked after circumspectly during the lockdown in response to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic. I really appreciate the psychological support from our residence and their efforts in combination with those of the local communities in donating free foods to us every week.

这也是我为什么喜欢加拿大这样一个富有人文文化的国家。
That's why I like Canada, a country full of humanitarianism culture.

最后我还想再分享一下我的学习经历。

Lastly, I would like to share my studying experience.

我体会到这边教授他们是有一个更加平等和互相尊重的一个关系。
I realized the relation between professors and the students is based on equality and mutual respect in Canada, more than what I had imagined.

他们能面对面的与学生进行交流探讨,引导学生进入更深沉次的研究。
They are willing to communicate and discuss with students face to face formally or informally, and guide us into further and deeper studies.

使学生拥有一个更加全面的批判性思维。
This enables students to form comprehensive critical thinking abilities.

而这边学校也会定期组织院长、校长与学生的交流会议。
The University will also organize meetings on a regular basis between students, the Dean and/or the President, creating a channel to connect the executive level and us.

去聆听学生的声音,以帮助他们后期进行一些更好地完善,去营造一个更好地学习氛围。
Students' suggestions and advice is collected attentively to help make improvements and to create a better learning environment.

同时这边的学习对学生自主学习能力有一个更高的要求,经常需要学生进行大量的阅读和研究。
However, students need to develop a good autonomous learning ability to meet the academic requirements, which usually involves a lot of reading and research.

这也是保证以后在工作上,学生能有一个更好地学习和工作的态度去融入到这个社会。
This also helps students build a positive attitude in integrating into the society and pursing their career goals.

这就是我的分享,谢谢大家。
That's my story. Thanks!
