姓名:靳婷婷 学校:鹿特丹商学院 专业:国际商务管理 荷兰跟中国是个非常不同的国家,我出生在中国的西北,以干旱  沙尘暴  而闻名。而荷兰正好到处是河流湖泊的国家,景致完全不同。像Delft Amsterdam更是河流穿梭于整个城市。荷兰的官方名字是Netherlands,意思是海平面以下的国家。据记载荷兰的整个国土上最高地海拔-6米。这里陆地也是平坦的一塌糊涂,我见过的最有曲线的地貌也就是丘陵了。记得刚来的时候正好是夏末初秋,到了晚上10点天都不黑的,而到了冬天下午4点就已经华灯初上了,着实一奇,让我联想到了极昼极夜。回忆起这一年来的点点滴滴,我只能说是痛并快乐着,目前依然在垂死挣扎阶段。仔细想想,更多的应该是心灵的旅程。借我同学的话说就是出国就像是挖个坑把自己埋了,而你只有两个选择要不发芽,要不闷死在土里,相信对于每个踏上出国路的人来说,这条路是自己选择的,跪着也要把它坚持走下去。

  首先说说这里的学习生涯,荷兰的高等院校分为学术型大学和应用型大学,前者高一个档次,鄙人胸无大志就上了一所谓的“二流”大学。这里我想要回答一个大家都会问到的问题,我不会说荷兰语为什么选择了去荷兰。首先美国,英国这样的主流留学国家的签证是出了名的难签,有的甚至被拒的次数达两位数字之高,所以我不想把时间浪费在这样的程序中,经历了高考千军万马过独木桥的盛况,我还是不要凑这份热闹了。其次,我选择的是商科,而在欧洲荷兰的教育又以商科而闻名,这里有欧洲第一的经济学专业,排名世界第八的MBA商学院,而且低廉的学费,发达的英语环境,为中国人留学创造了扎实的软环境。再次,北京两年的生活经历,让我对大城市的交通管理深痛恶决。全荷兰也只有北京的两个半大,就算在鹿特丹这样的第二大城市里生活用步行就可以解决。再三权衡,11个小时的高空飞行之后,我落地阿姆斯特丹荷兰首都。

  尽管我上的只是二类大学,但是依然不可小觑。在这里上大学比在国内上高中还要辛苦,在这里短短一年比我整个高中3年写的字都多,就算小小的一门副科也对我是个很大的挑战。因为是应用型大学,所以处处都体现着实用的特点。从大一开始,就接连被一堆presentation轰炸,很多人刚刚高中毕业就过来,别说用另外一种语言做presentation就是用中文都是前所未有,所以从语言到心理都是一个极大的挑战。其次就是写作,每门课几乎每个星期都要交报告。从封面设计到排版,都有严格的要求,处处体现着细节与专业,这在国内更是闻所未闻。再次团队合作,不知道其他国家怎么样,这里对小组作业是情有独钟。这个也是大家最恐惧的作业, 一个作业顺下来把领导力,协调力,沟通力,影响力全都锻炼一圈,比自己一个人做还要累。最后,也是我最不适应的是老外真的很喜欢email.这里大大小小的事情都用email通知,所以我也最讨厌翻学校信箱,只要有新邮件就意味着有新的事情等着你去处理。这也是外企的一大特点。通过以上举例,可以看得出来学校从方方面面把你武装成标准的职业人不仅是理论知识包括职业技能。国内大学在这一点上不能与之同日而语。

  当然在忙碌的学习生活背后,我也在积极地进行的自己的社会交际生活。能想起的最搞笑的事件应该是--情欲数字6事件。话说那日夜里完成了智力及体力双重较量的赌场之旅之后,一行人去bar小酌,饭桌上当荷兰同学得知几日后就是我的第一次的荷兰语阶段性考试时热情地帮我复习起荷兰语。首先从1,2,3......数数教起。英文中6是six,荷兰语是zes,z发s的音。我憋了很久绞尽脑汁地终于吐出来一sex.当场众人酒喷,我也暴囧!

  荷兰人对酒钟爱有加,尤其是他们出口各国的喜力啤酒。个人觉得这里的口感要偏苦一些,不喜欢。而酒精也是友谊最好的催化剂。每次开party,酒绝对是少不了的节目。就像我们说的,不管你能不能喝,感情深一口闷。也许因着酒精的缘故,荷兰人也都非常的热情。每当四目相对时,都会彼此打招呼这是基本的社会礼仪。 上次鹿特丹海港节,我在瑟瑟寒风暴雨中,因为冷一口闷掉手中的一整杯的喜力之后,立马有一中年荷兰人像我竖起大拇指,询问我来自哪里。当听说我来自中国之后,对我国的美食大加赞赏,还为我推荐出名的中国餐厅,就好像已熟知的老友一般。这里我要说明一点,似乎各国人民对我国的美食都是赞不绝口,以致一次聚餐一新加坡的女生在饭馆里就忍不住地大呼好吃,她还仅仅吃到的是广州菜式而已。

  不过荷兰倒是个自驾游的好去处。因着城市小地势平坦的原因,开一天车也不觉得累。荷兰是个农业与工业都很发达的国家,没有城市与农村之说。在城市的接壤处都是大片大片的农场,也就是荷兰有钱人的居住地。在夕阳西下的余晖中,金灿灿的阳光装饰着绿油油的草地,两只肥羊,四只花奶牛三三两两的点缀在那一片绿地上,远离城市的喧嚣与繁忙,是一幅多么诗情画意的景致,整个人也跟着松懈下来。顺便说句题外话,荷兰小到我们留学生都习惯性的称其为城市,而它的城市除了阿姆斯特丹其它地方都戏称为村,比如格罗宁根就简称为格村。在这里任何一个城市都看不到我们国内的4车道,也很难找到一座几十层的摩天大楼,一般建筑物都不会高于5层,一般一个城市最雄伟的建筑物就应该是那尖尖角的教堂。

最后上一张从朋友相册偷来的海港节的照片,希望我们大家的海外生活都如这烟花般绚烂多彩。
