学生面试

我们何炳章进行了精彩的交谈, 他是中国人,现居住在里约热内卢。他向我们介绍了他的经历。 你为什么住在里约热内卢?因为我在巴西的大学教汉语课。您为什么决定学习巴西葡萄牙语?因为我对小语种更感兴趣,而且学葡语的前景很大,并且学葡语也就更容易了解其他印欧语系的语言。当然在巴西生活学习葡语是必不可少的。巴西的生活与中国的生活有很大不同吗?在里约的话生活还是有很大区别的,在圣保罗和中国大部分城市的生活更像。里约有更多的自然景观,各种各样的海滩,各种各样的山,可以爬山、徒步,人们也更喜欢户外运动,生活节奏也相对更慢。 您觉得学习巴西葡萄牙语很难吗?我觉得要看对葡语学习的动机是否强烈。任何一门语言都不简单,但是如果很需要学习并且努力学习,都不会是一件难事。您在里约热内卢的生活中受到了什么文化冲击?大部分情况都还好,因为本身心态比较开放。最大的文化冲击是在路上或者派对上会经常有人问“我能不能亲你”,人们在男女关系上是比较开放的。在里约热内卢生活有哪些积极方面?里约有丰富的自然资源,山、海、瀑布、森林等,人们也都很热情、友好、善良,每个人都很开心,在里约生活会很快乐。人们喜欢跳舞、音乐,有更种各样的聚会、酒吧。也有世界各种各样的美食,也有丰富的文化和艺术,有很多博物馆可以参观。不利之处是什么?公共交通比较贵;并不是所有地方都很安全,在路上需要注意;周日很多商店都不营业;有很多流浪汉在路上乞讨;移动支付还不普及您会给想要学习葡萄牙语的任何人什么建议?学习语言没有捷径,所以最重要的是坚持,每天都要坚持不断的学才会更有进步。
