2018年6月2日,参与德国多特蒙德工业大学(TUDO)暑期交流项目的10名同学顺利抵达并开始了在该校的学习生活。

一、大学简介 Introduction of TUDO

 

        TUDO全名为多特蒙德工业大学[Technische Universität Dortmund],位于德国西部北莱茵威斯特法伦州[Nordrhein-Westfalen]的多特蒙德市[Dortmund],始建于1968年。作为专长于工科学科的重点理工类大学,TUDO为德国老牌工业区鲁尔区[Ruhrgebiet]培养了大量高素质的劳动力及科学人才。例如,在刚刚收购了全球农化巨头孟山都[Monsanto]的著名化工公司拜耳[Bayer AG]中,约有40%的工程师毕业于TUDO的生物与化学工程系[Fakultät Bio- und Chemieingenieurwesen]。

 

Founded in 1968, Technische Universität Dortmund (TUDO) is located at the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, which lies in the west of Germany. As it focuses on engineering subjects, TUDO has nurtured a large quantity of technical labour force for Ruhr region, the world famous industrial district. For instance, in Bayer AG, the pharmaceutical magnate who just purchased the world-leading agrochemical corporation Monsanto, about 40% of the engineers graduated from the Bio- and Chemistry Department of TUDO.

 

二、生活初感 A First Touch of German Life

 

时差 Time Difference

 

        德国位于东一区,比处在东八区的中国慢七小时。然而由于三月进行了夏令时调整,所以暑课期间比中国慢六小时。即北京时间13:00对应柏林时间当天早上7:00。五点左右日出,九到十点日落。

Due to the adjustment of daylight saving time in March, during the whole summer course Berlin time is six hours slower than Beijing time, i.e., 13:00 in China is 7:00am in German. Usually the sun rises at 5am and the sunset is around 9pm or 10pm.

 

三餐节律 Dining Time

 

        德国素来被称为”最不注重饮食的国家“,就餐时间也并不固定。十一点时可以吃早餐,午饭可以从下午三点开始吃,而晚饭则可能是五点开始。总而言之,什么时间吃什么餐的都可能有。值得注意的是,由于就餐时间晚,食物总量多,很多德国人在吃完”午饭“之后并不会再吃晚餐。强烈建议胃不好的同学随身携带充饥食物,因为和德国同学一起出去时你永远不知道下一餐什么时候吃,在哪吃,吃什么。

 

It is not a surprising issue that in Germany, the country that “pays the least attention to dining”, people do not have a regular meal time. You may spot someone having breakfast at 11:00, lunch at 15:00, and dinner at 17:00 — it is possible to have any meal at any time. However, a large portion of German do not have dinner due to the late time and large intake of lunch. Thus, for those with a weak stomach, it is strongly suggested to always take some snacks with you, since you seldom know the time, location, or content of the next meal when hanging out with German friends.

 

键盘 Keyboard

 

        德语键盘中Y和Z的位置是对调的。并且,为了适应umlaut字母(ü,ö,ä)及ß的输入,大部分标点符号的位置都做出了调整。此外,在MacBook上从德语输入法切换至中文输入法后,这些设置仍会生效。

 

The locations of Y and Z are exchanged in a German keyboard. Also, to cope with the representation of the umlaut letters (ü,ö,ä) and ß, most of the punctuations are relocated.

 

 

三、校园一瞥 A Glance of the Campus

 

        分为南北两个校园,通过H-Bahn[Hängerbahn空中有轨列车连接。凭学生卡可免费乘坐,否则需要买票。建筑风格是浓厚的工科气息。楼的全名和缩写从不同时出现,刚到时要认真加以辨别。

The whole campus consists of a south part and a north one, which are connected by H-Bahn, a kind of hanging railways. The railway is free with a student card, otherwise it charges fees. Every component of the school architecture gives out a strong sense of engineering style. Additionally, since the full name and the abbreviation of a building never appear at the same time, it might take some time to recognize the buildings for fresh students.

 

四、本周活动 Activities in the 1st Week

 

与Double见面 Meeting Our Doubles

 

        每位参加ISP的同学将会被分配一位TUDO的学生作为Double(可理解为一位”地陪“),可以通过他们直接方便地了解德国学生的日常生活。当然也可以向他们介绍中国(有的歪果仁认为中国人需要使用一块超级大且包含所有汉字的键盘打字。

 

Every participant of ISP will be teamed up with a Double from TUDO, and can grasp a deeper understanding towards German culture and student life through these friends.

 

欢迎会及烧烤 Orientation & Welcome BBQ

 

        对交换项目及生活须知进行简单介绍,参观校园后进行烧烤及游戏。

 

A brief introduction on the exchange program and life in German;
A guided campus tour and a welcome BBQ;

 

 

                                                 (Typical German beer games)

 

 

 

 

                                                          (体验 Beer Games)

 

多特蒙德城市参观与酒吧体验 Dortmund City Tour & Bar Visting

 

        围绕多特蒙德室内各大火车站进行介绍,最后体验典型的德国酒吧。其实比起想象中纸醉金迷嘈杂喧闹的场景,德国酒吧更像是一个普通的小餐馆(也可能只是因为世界杯还没开始)。

 

The tour leads to several important train stations in the Dortmund city, and ends at a typical German bar. Without large noises (maybe it is simply because the World Cup has yet to start), German bars are just like ordinary small restaurants.

 

霍赫绥堡远足 Hiking to Hohensyburg

 

        一次总时长将近五个小时的爬山(爬坡),占领微信运动封面从此不是梦。山里空气很好,树木葱茏;登上山顶后开阔景色尽收眼底。但如若身体不适,不建议前往。

 

The hiking takes approximately five hours in total and requires lots of walking as well as climbing. Fresh air and pleasing scenery views. However as the hike is extremely tiring, it is essential to evaluate your body condition before deciding whether to go or not.
