“No accumulation of steps, can’t lead to thousand miles. No integration of streams, can’t result in seas and oceans.” The learning of Chinese can’t expect results overnight. I am more than happy to accompany them to explore the colorful world by reading, write down their passages by their heart, and search for the pleasure in learning Chinese.

My Hometown

This content is only available in Chinese. 有人說,華夏民族是最戀家的民族。為甚麼呢?   古代的中國,版圖遼大,交通卻十分不發達。無論是進京考取功名,還是去他鄉做官,亦或被流放外省,都很難知道何時才能重返故鄉。短則一年半載,長則一生,於是,古代很多人有了這樣一個身份——遊子。還記得那個「少小離家老大回」的賀知章嗎?當他再度回到故鄉時,五十幾年過去了,雖是「鄉音無改」,卻已「鬢毛衰」了。   遊子常年在外,每當思念故鄉時,他們就將自己的思鄉之情化為文字,寫成一首首思鄉詩。讓我們一起來看看千百年前遊子思鄉的詩吧。   一千多年前的一個晚上,月光皎潔,在揚州一間旅舍中的李白,望着天空中的一輪明月,思鄉之情油然而生。他揮揮筆,寫下了膾炙人口的名句「舉頭望明月,低頭思故鄉」。李白在思念故鄉的甚麼呢?短短四句詩沒有告訴我們,但卻能夠引發我們無盡的聯想。這就是詩歌的一個特點:言有盡而意無窮。你在讀這首詩的時候,又在想些甚麼呢?是想到了自己的故鄉,遠在故鄉的親人和朋友,還是發生在故鄉的往事呢? 小時候的我很喜歡唐詩,早早就把《唐詩三百首》背得滾瓜爛熟。可是,對於其中一些詩句,當時卻沒能產生真正的共情。直到獨自在外讀書的第一個中秋節,那晚的月亮又大又圓,月光灑在水面上,波光粼粼。在江邊散步的我,突然就理解了張九齡的「海上生明月,天涯共此時」。那一刻,作為小小遊子的我,跨越了時間和空間,和詩人懷揣了同樣一份思鄉之情。   「故鄉」二字,早已深深扎根於每個人的內心。故鄉的一花一草,哪怕是一捧泥土,都承載着人們的回憶,寄託着人們深深的留戀之情,無論到了天涯海角,都無法忘懷。遊子思鄉,在古代,是重陽佳節「獨在異鄉為異客,每逢佳節倍思親」的孤單,是「春風又綠江南岸,明月何時照我還」的急迫,是獨自一人在夜深時「月是故鄉明,露從今夜白」的感慨……在當代,是余光中先生的一枚郵票,是各地的春運熱潮,是不遠萬里也要回家和家人共度除夕的執着……當然,有了飛機和高鐵,我們回家的方式變得多樣又快捷;有了電話和網絡,我們和家人的聯繫變得即時又緊密。當代的遊子思鄉,更多是抱着希望和帶着快樂的心情在思念故鄉吧。 好了,就先寫到這吧,我也要收拾回鄉的行李了。          … Read More
