我沙龙于2018年征文“双语沙龙的故事”获福建省翻译协会纪念改革开放40周年翻译组二等奖。全文如下

The storiesof  Bilingual Corner
   Just a gathering of English lovers,inadvertently witnessed many foreigners come here to share, lecture,acquaintance, gradually become a place to close the world, the world close theplace, seeing the developing and growth of Sanming .
   In 2013, as an English enthusiast, I set upa bilingual salon dedicated to practicing spoken English for English lovers,which is different from other salons, whether Chinese or foreign, regardless oflanguage, as long as willing to share, everyone can find a place here, so, manyEnglish lovers, even some beginners of English learning are also willing to tryspoken here, more English majors lovers, due to various reasons can not engagein foreign language works, who could also found the stage to release hisprofessional ability in salon. At the beginning of the establishment, three orfive friends gathered in a coffee shop, each took an English book to learn thespoken language of the book, but also to share the theme, its learning andfriendship charector gradually attracted many English lovers to join. As thebilingual salon was separated from the original English salon, foreign teachersworking in Sanming gradually joined the bilingual salon, becoming a place forthem to learn about Sanming and study local culture. As a participant in thebilingual salon, I can feel the changes in those who came from variouscountries participated in the activities over the years, as well as the changesin our Fujian Province, from few foreigners in Sanming to the increasing numberof foreigners in Sanming now. From only doing foreign language teaching to work,living, and a study. It really brought the change of mountain city by theimplementation of the national strategy of "Belt and Road" in ourcountry. On the one hand, this change has increased the opportunities forforeigners to understand our country, but also for foreigners to enter our city,investment, business, life and travelling as well.
  In 2014, Ms. Izabla from Poland, came hereand became an English teacher in a senior high school, was attracted by the ourtraditional cultural heritage of this small town as soon as she arrived at Sanming.In addition to visiting the tourist resorts such as Taining and Jianning, shealso shared it through attending salons. Let everyone know the changes thathave taken place in the years of her staying and working in Sanming. Forexample, when she came to Sanming for the first time, she shared her hometownof Poland and her method of learning languages. In the later days, she always stayswith her students and visit their homes in Sanming .  She learned Chinese martial arts and  learned to the Chinese tea art and the Chinesecheongsam. She also participated in the cheonggown show organized by the localcheongsam association in the county. Her participation gave a trace of exoticdemeanour to our traditional Chinese cheongsam art. Her interest in traditionalculture has led her to enter local society more often, to make friends withpeople of various professions, and to be win the prize of the "BestFriendship Award" by the provincial government for foreigners.
  Here, there are foreign students studyingmajored in Chinese manufacture. The International College of Sanming Universityis increasingly recruiting students from countries along the "Belt andRoad" to study or work here. Since the 2015 turning chairmanship system, Salonhas received a group of foreign students to share here. They are fromBangladesh, the United Kingdom, Kenya, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, the United States,Finland, Australia, Italy, Cameroon and other countries. Students who alsovisit Sanming are mostly from Asia, Africa and Latin America. For example,Mizan from Bangladesh, who was originally a clothing dealer, He plane to cometo China to study modern business and management knowledge. He and hisclassmates are studying mechanical manufacturing at university, Through thelocal translation association and the association of English lovers of SanSteelcompany, which is the largest steel enterprise in our province, they went tothe modern factory workshop to study. They highly praised the automation manufactureprocessing in the workshop, if they can get permittion, Many internationalstudents even said they'd like to work in this enterprise. Perhaps it is theexport of China's advanced production technology that makes them (developingcountries such as Asia, Africa and Latin America) develop faster and better. Ithink this is also the purpose for them to study advanced management technologyin China.
  More foreigners live here. English Salon meta British veteran, Alen, who met his present Chinese wife in Oman and stayed inChina after retirement. In the coffee shop, he used to hold pictures of hislife which he was worked and lived in various countries, such as coins, ID,passportand so on, talking to students about the culture of these countries, where hehas been, I was ever asked him whether or not he like this place, the Englishgentleman said very seriously, I like the mountains here, the water here, and,more importantly, the people here, and I think what he said is true, becausehere he may find the feeling of going home. Besides taking care of each otherwith his lover, Fujian's fresh air, friendly living environment, sound medicaland health care , increasingly convenient transportation make him feel that thetown is match for his native England. Another British architect, Robert, methis girlfriend while working in English as a Yoga instructor in the UK andlater became his wife. He goes back to Fujian two or three times a year. Wecasually talked about his experience in China. He said that Fujian hasdifferent feelings for him. He worked in a local architectural design institutein Xiamen and often returned to Sanming. He felt that the slow life of thesmall city and the familiarity between people were better than in large citieswhere he had stayed. In recent years, he has also witnessed the development ofFujian. He told me that he and his wife had already taken the train  of sightseeing for the beautiful spring.
   Here, foreigners even could opened an exhibitionof paintings. Mr. sef, from the Netherlands, was an early art lecturer atSanming College. He used the lens and brush to record the places he was in,Hong Kong, Shanghai, Beijing, Xiamen, Sanming, and so on. He shared his lifeexperience at the bilingual salon, which shocked the whole audience. Ithappened that one of the artists at the exhibition immediately promised to helphim realize this dream. As a result, the exhibition of Mr. Seif's paintings wassuccessfully held in Sanming calligraphy and painting Institute. His worksinclude the lives of the ordinary citizens of Sanming, the places he hasvisited, and the changes that modern life has brought to people's lives, suchas high-speed rail, bamboo products, architectural schools and so on.
   We also successfully held a speaking contestdue to the  "one belt and oneway" strategy. More than 300 contestants from the whole city take the"The maritime silk road in my eyes" as the topic, and express theirsincere compliments on the economic development brought to the countries, alongthe route and the friendly exchanges between the peoples of all countries sincethe ancient strategy of  silk road was establishedby the country, looking forward to a better tomorrow, the English SpeechCompetition has became the place where contestant could showed their freshspeech style and level, the country's belt and road culture has been deeplyrooted among the people.

看双语沙龙看福建发展
   原本只是一个英语爱好者的聚会,不经意却也见证了许多外国人到这里分享、讲习、结识的历程,不经意地成为了一个地方走进世界、世界走进这里的地方,见证了三明这座小城在国家的“一带一路”建设发展中的点点滴滴。
   说来话长,2013年,作为一名英语爱好者,我组建了一个专为英语爱好者练习口语的双语沙龙,与其他沙龙有所不同,沙龙不论中外,不论语种,只要是愿意分享,都能在此找到一席之地,于是间,许多英语爱好者,带着半熟半生的英语也愿意在这里一试口语,更多的是英语专业的爱好者,由于各种原因无法从事本专业工作,却在沙龙找到了释放自己能力的舞台。建立之初,有幸遇见同样喜欢英语的茶馆老板,愿意免费提供沙龙场地,于是,每周末固定时间邀请三五好友在此茶馆小聚,原来的自由英文聊天,后来是以共读好书的方式,共同学习本英文书,学习书中的口语,又可分享其中主题,其学习和交友性质逐渐了吸引了许多英文爱好者的加入。由于双语沙龙为由脱胎于原来的英语沙龙,在三明工作的外教和外国留学生也逐渐地加入了双语沙龙,成为他们了解三明、学习当地文化的地方。作为双语沙龙的参与者,本人真切感受这些年到沙龙参加活动的各国友人来到三明的变化,也感受到我们福建的变化,从原本的在三明少有外国人,到现在三明逐渐增多的外国人,从来三明只是从事外教工作的外国人,变成了即有工作,也有在此生活、学习的外国人,真切地感受到我国“一带一路”国家战略的实施给山城带来的变化。这个变化一方面给外国人了解三明增加了机会,也为外国人投资在三明、兴业在三明、生活在三明带来了更多机遇。
在这,有在此工作和发展的工作友人。2014年,来自波兰的Izabla女士,应我市某中学的邀请,担任高中英语外教,这位能说五国语言的外教老师一到三明就被这座小城的传统文化底蕴所吸引,除了到了泰宁、建宁等旅游胜地参观外,更是通过参加沙龙分享,让大家了解到她在三明工作的几年来发生的变化,如初到三明,她分享了她的家乡波兰,分享了她学习多国语言的方法,第二年,在双语沙龙就分享了她在三明的学生家作客,并在工作的这一年时间学习到的中国武术、接触到中国茶道、中国旗袍等,她更是参加了当地的旗袍协会组织在县里举办的旗袍秀,让中国旗袍这一传统艺术抹了一丝异域风采。她对传统文化的兴趣,使她更多地走入当地人社会,乐于与各行各业的人交朋友,更是被省政府专为外国人颁发的“最佳友谊奖”。
在这,有在此学习中国制造专业的外国留学生。三明学院国际学院正越来越多地招收“一带一路”沿线国家学生在此学习或工作,沙龙自2015年轮值主席制度以来,迎来了一批双一批的外国留学生在此分享,他(她)们来自孟加拉国、英国、肯尼亚、津巴布韦、巴基斯坦、美国、芬兰、澳大利亚、意大利、喀麦隆等国家,即有来三明作志愿者的国外大学生,也在来三明旅游的学生,更多的是在三明工作的亚非拉国家学生。比如来自孟加拉国的Mizan,他原本是名服装经销商,在他们国家做传统生意也需要走出去学习现代的经营管理知识,他和他的同学一方面在大学里学习专业的机械制造,一方面,通过当地翻译协会与三钢英语爱好者协会组织,走进我省最大的钢企三钢,走到现代化的厂房学习,他们对工业生产过程中的自动化作业生产车间高度称赞,如果条件允许,许多留学生甚至表示能到企业工作。或许,正是我国的先进生产技术的输出,才使得他们(亚非拉等发展中国家)更快更好地发展,我想这也是他们留学中国学习中国先进管理技术的目的吧。
在这里,有更多的外国人在此生活。早年英语沙龙就遇见一位英国退伍的老兵Alen,在阿曼认识了现在的中国妻子,退休后就一直留在中国,在咖啡馆里,他习惯拿着他的这一生在各国工作和生活的照片、钱币、证件等,与学生们聊这些国家的文化、他去过的地方,我问他,你喜欢福建这个地方吗?这位英国绅士很认真地说,我很喜欢这里,这里的山、这里的水、更重要的是这里的人,都是我喜欢的,我想他说的是真的,因为在这里他或许可以找到回家的感觉,除了和他的爱人彼此照应之外,福建清新的空气、友善的人居环境、健全的医疗卫生和越来越便捷的交通,使他觉得这座小城,一点都不输老家英国。还有一位英国建筑设计师Robert,在英国工作时认识了女友,当时女友在英国是名瑜伽教练,后来成为他的妻子。他每年都要回福建两三次,有时在厦门、有时在福州、有时在三明,一次来三明的双语沙龙我们随意地聊起了他在中国的经历,他说,福建对他有着不一样的感情,他在厦门的某一建筑设计院工作,也常回到三明这座小城,他觉得小城市的慢生活,人与人之间的熟悉程度超过他呆过的大城市,而近年来,他也见证了福建的发展,他告诉我,他和他爱人,已经坐过了那趟开往春天的列车(闽西北地区高铁)。
在这里,有外国人开办了画展。来自荷兰的Sef先生,早年曾在三明学院担任过美术讲师,他常用镜头和画笔记录了他呆过的地方,香港、上海、北京、厦门、三明等,各种现代的、传统的都记录在他的画本里,他在双语沙龙分享他的人生经历,震撼了全场佳宾,刚好一位做画展的在现场当即答应帮他实现这一愿望,于是塞夫先生画展就在三明市书画院成功举办。他的作品即有三明普通市民生活的,也有体现他去过的地方,更多的是体现现代生活给人们生活带来的各种变化,比如高铁、竹制品、建筑流派等。
在这,更是借国家“一带一路”的战略,举办了学生英语演讲大赛,来自全市300余位选手以“我眼中的海丝”为题,抒发对祖国自古开辟“一带一路”战略以来,为沿线国家所带来的经济发展以及促进各国人民友好往来的由衷赞美,展望自己对美好明天的向往。英语演讲大赛即比出了风格,比出了水平,也从另一种方式传播了我国的海丝文化。
在这里,有更多的外国人走进三明、也有更多三明人走出国门,将现代的科技、文化、技术等,传播到国外,这里也会有现在进行时,以更加开放包容的姿态迎接各国人民来访。
