Examination

Coming back from Beijing, I finished my first battle last weekend. Everything goes extremely well, I suppose so.XD
The examination was not such difficult as I thought before. Maths was quite easy, though I didn't get enough time to check my answers. The topic of English essay was "My Role Model". And I wrote Caoying(草婴 ), who is a wonderful Russian translator. I do respect him.

When I was waiting outside the interview room, I felt a little bit nervous. However, by the time I entered the room, I was totally relaxed. The topic was "Describe a thing which impressed you the most". I was chosen to be the first person to give the English impromptu speech in my group which consisted of 8 students. Well...I said something related to Bunin and Turgenev, because it is Russian Literature that impressed me the most. It's a miracle.
As my aim is to get admitted to the Russian department of UIBE, I also explained my career goal to the professor who interviewed me. In my opinion, a good Russian translator is not only the person who can translate Russian into Chinese or Chinese into Russian, but also the one who treats Russian language as his or her beloved sweetheart.

After the speech, here comes free debate. The topic was "Euthanasia", and we've been divided into two sides randomly. I was in the pro side. We made a list included every team member's idea. Although we didn't even know others' names before the interview, we become strong alliance during the debate.

To tell the truth, I did enjoy the 50-minute interview. It was so interesting, especially the part of free debate. I just love to cooperate with other people, no matter we're strangers or old friends.


<- Before entering the interview room, I took this photo at the school gate...hope I can return back at the very beginning of next semester! XD

Here are some photos taken in Beijing. Thanks to the ticket of Moscow Metro, it brings me great luck.
I've never seen the snow of north...as a matter of fact, our snow in south is always snow with water and ice TwT. By the time I opened the door in the morning of the examination day, it was snowy! Words can't express my feelings when I saw the white outside...snow was just...adorable.><


At the Millitary Museum.


The snow of Beijing looks like white sugar. XD


Outside the Beijing Exhibition Center. Yes I...I went to LaoMo again...to enjoy the "Kol-Kol Feast".XD

By the way, I went to Yabao road before the examination day. It's said that the ELEPHANT restaurant of Yabao road serves great Russian food. That's true, ELEPHANT is better than LaoMo...although LaoMo has longer history--it was opened in 1954.

I really can't remember now did I eat in Elefant or any other restaurant there... But I remember I ate somewhere, and it was STRANGE Russian meal. LOL

I wonder, where did you take this ticket? ))

Oh, there is one tea shop on Yabaolu. Tea is good, and host is named Dima. He has a brother, Zoya (don't ask me why he choose female name). Please if you'll have a chance to see him, 我问他好!

I know your feelings...just like last time I went to Tianjin, found a shop selling Choudoufu(a special local product of Hunan)--I'll never think that strange thing is Choudoufu without the description! And it tastes awful.TwT As a person come from Hunan province, my expression just as strange as that...well, they call it "Choudoufu".

I wonder, where did you take this ticket? ))
You mean the ticket of Moscow Metro? One of my friend from Moscow send it to me, and I received it just before I went to Beijing for the examination.

Okay I'll send your greetings to Dima next time when I find his tea shop. :) Maybe this summer, if I could get admitted into the UIBE sucessfully.XD

loooool I don't want to say anything bad about restaurants on Yabaolu! :laugh: Really I think Chinese restaurants in Russia are no more Chinese than Russian restaurants in China are Russian. While I love some Chinese restaurants in Moscow. In Peter I was in one and it was TERRIBLE! O_O Awful expirience.

Choudoufu... that thing with STRANGE aroma?
