紫砂壶茶楼

桂子落画亭,梅影弄碧洲。胜迹追武陵,美酒流心沟。

Sunday 05 Jan

    After a nice sleep at home, I got up at 10. Having pasta for breakfast, I went to The University of Nottingham to do the first thing to check the email. The ground was covered by snow making the scenery more beautiful, with the sun shining brightly. I felt very relaxed today, thinking that I could soon contact with some of my friends again.

    When I came into the library computer room, I found there were only a few people in it. New school term begins tomorrow.

   

Monday 06 Jan.

    It was the first day of the new term. After the long interesting journey, I went to school as usual. Today I put on my western uniform and polished my leather shoes.

    When I walked into the classroom, Chris greeted me and joked if I had got a job in a company in England and so did my classmates. I told them that I bought the uniform in Paris and some of them believed. Chen came over and looked at the brand, which was Romon, made in Ningbo. They all laughed.

    At ten o’clock, we began to have our lesson. Chris continued to introduce some class activities to us.

    We have no lessons in the afternoon for the first week. So I feel quite relaxed. After the lesson I went to the computer room to type my journals.

    Mr Wu Xuguang called me from Hanzhow at 11 o’clock at night. He wanted me to take over his job after his retirement. But I was told that someone had been applied by the authority, which made Wr Wu unhappy. Anyway, the matter has not finally been decided and it makes me no different where to work.

 

Tuesday 07 Jan.

    Sarah was late for her lessons to give us. So Chris continued his lessons on how a successful learner does in his or her learning. We discussed a lot about the question.

    At ten, Sarah came. We greeted warmly to her. Then she took over the job from Chris and talked on the same subject. Class was over at 11.

    We were told that Mr Bao Tianren, who is in charge of our programme, would come to see us especially from China at two o’clock. So I first went to the computer room to do my own business. Before two o’clock I came to Room A64 Trent Building to wait for Mr. Bao’s arrival. All of us were there.

    Soon Mr Bao came smiling. We gave a warm welcome and we were all very excited.

    Bao said he placed great hope on us. He said that Sun Zhongshan went abroad to seek for truth that year and overthrew the Qing Dynasty and that Zhou Enlai, Chen Yi etc. went to France to study the new ideas and they finally set up the new republic. He wanted us to give a renovation in teaching English after we went back. And in ten years more than 1000 teachers will be trained and that is a great strength to bring English teaching into a right scientific way. He said that new thought and idea were countless strength that would change the current English teaching trend in China. He wanted us to conclude a best way to teach English in China. So we immediately felt the responsibility and were greatly encouraged by his words and understood why we were sent here.

    He told us not to miss home and stuck to learning here for another 3 months. He said that when we went back to Beijing, he would come to meet us.

    We were all so moved that some of us expressed their decision to study harder.

Wednesday 08 Jan.

    Another professor gave us a guest lecture on motivation of learners this morning. This was the first time I had attended such a topic. So I felt very fresh. The professor gave a very clear explanation and he expressed his idea vividly.

After the lecture I decided to go on typing my journals. It was snowing hard then and very cold outside. So I quickly went into the nearest computer room. Suddenly I felt warm. In fact, I was sweating. I had to take off more of my clothes leaving only a shirt.

Snow sent me a mail today, telling me there was electricity failure yesterday so she didn’t send me mails. She had learned to chat with me using MSN messenger. So we chatted for half an hour. Her English was poor, but I could guess what she was talking about. It snowed heavily in Ningbo yesterday and became very cold after the snow. She said she then felt hot in heart when she was talking with me but cold in feet. She also told me that for the last three nights she dreamed of me and put her hands around my neck and we talked sweet words in the dream.

Thursday 09 Jan.

    Sarah gave us a lesson on motivation again. She provided us with some practical activities. I think they were useful.

    As you knew, I had no lesson this afternoon. So I went to the library. There were a lot of students there today. The queue of waiting for using the computer was long. It was lucky it was soon my turn to use the computer. As usual I signed in the MSN messenger and read BBC news. After an hour I began to type my journals.

   

Friday 10 Jan.

    I was free today. After having a good breakfast, chicken and rice. At half past 9, I went to the university computer room to go on typing my journals. At 11 o’clock, the electricity suddenly failed in the computer room, so all the words I typed on the PC may get lost. I waited patiently for a long time for the electricity to come again.

    Twenty minutes later, it still didn’t come. So I left the library and quickly went into Geography and Economic Building to go on with my typing. The words I typed just now were lost and I had to begin with the right beginning today.

   

Saturday 11 Jan.

  

    Mr. Wu called me in the morning telling me something about the office work. He used Wang Tong Card to phone me through PC, which cost less, three jiao per minute.

At about half past 12, SST, my son, contacted with me by MSN messenger. We first used microphone to talk for a while. His voice was very clear to me. But unfortunately, he was off line and I knew that the PC died again. A few minutes later he signed in again and we just chatted by typing words. He told me that he won the first prize in the maths and English competitions. He also told me that he had already learned about 2000 English words. When I asked him if he could talk with me in English after I come back, he answered that he could. I advised him to write English journals as I did and send me some by email. He promised to do so and asked me to wait and see. He also promised me to read some English novels during the holidays. It is strange that he didn’t receive my postcard.

SST said goodbye to me at half past one. Snow was busy marking the test papers. She would have four lessons tomorrow.

    I began to read news for about an hour then went home.
