Seeing widely, not knowing deeply

Seeing widely, not knowing deeply


I read an article today, and said that when a university professor was an oral exam reviewer,
he found that many so-called “scholarly elites” had a very rich learning experience.
They either went abroad to exchange students or became international volunteers.
There are even footprints to the Solomon Islands in Oceania and Malawi in Africa. ​How many “adults” have such an experience,
which can be said to be out of reach? However, if you want to open these pages, it seems to be completely untested.

The article gives a few examples: a student came back from an exchange in Nuremberg, Germany,
and the interviewer asked him to introduce Nuremberg.
The student mentioned some attractions, but the professor did not want the booklet of the tour group,
but wanted to hear a deeper cultural understanding. , such as the “Great Judgment of Nuremberg”,
because of this historical background, Nuremberg became the first international trial court.
And this student, when he heard the “Judgment at Nuremberg”, may still have a blank mind…

Another example is also interesting:
a student wants to recommend a book by his professor Xie Zhimou to his classmates in the mainland.
The interviewer asked, do you know the importance of your teacher (Professor Xie Zhimou) in the education world?
In the end, the classmate only said that Professor Xie was very interesting and had a very absurd life experience…
And Professor Xie Zhimou was the first expert in adventure education in Taiwan

Those who are interested can refer to this article:

Think about it for a few more seconds, in fact, the above examples happen every day in our lives,
and the answers of these two students are not wrong ~ or else?
(The OS of the two students being greeted should be like this)
They can say that they have answered the question, or they can say nothing.
For students, you ask and I answer, that’s what I think; for professors, can’t you have deeper thoughts?

In fact, when I saw this article, my first thought was… ah!
I seem to be like this before… I don’t feel like I’m in the right seat…

I graduated from the Department of Russian, if you ask me what I think about Russia :

When I was in the first year of the Russian Department of National Chengchi University,
I should have only spoken… um… it was very cold… Russian is difficult….

I went on a one-month study tour during the summer vacation of my freshman year.
When I came back, I would say… the sky in Moscow is so big and blue, the buildings are so grand,
and the subway is so fast and noisy, but I will say it after a year of exchange in the third year of the museum,
because The Soviet Union, there are a lot of people from different countries and different races,
the Russians are only us and them in the world, black and white.


And today, for me, who lived for six years and married a Russian, there are more answers.
Because it cannot be summed up in one word, it needs to be discussed at different levels.
Everything is caused by a series of causes and effects.
If the Vikings did not need to expand due to insufficient food, there would not have been the first grand duke to Kyiv,
and Russia would not be today; if it weren’t for Red October Revolution,
the capital of Russia may still be St. Petersburg in the North Sea instead of today’s Moscow;
if it weren’t for the former Soviet Union, there would not be so many peoples
who can communicate in Russian perfectly even if they have their own national language;
if there is no firewood Kowski, maybe ballet died down with the fall of the royal family after the French Revolution. …

We always feel that the more we meet, the more we know…
Since I have been abroad for so many years, of course I know more! This logic is like,
sending children abroad to study, English (or other foreign languages)
will definitely be very good! As everyone knows, how many overseas students are chasing dramas in the dormitory every day,
or only with friends in the Chinese circle? ! A closer look at the reason is that “obedience”

We have been taught to be “obedient” since we were young,
and even most of the reasons for studying abroad are – “arranged by family members”,
since it is arranged, go for it ~ continue to stay in your comfort zone,
so on the surface It seems that I have “seeed a lot”,
but I don’t know that it is just moving the room from one country to another.
Without real experience of life, without real feeling of life, how to “know a lot”?
But if it’s a student who wants to go out spontaneously, it’s a completely different attitude!
At that time, my third-year study abroad was won by my mother.
Our economic conditions made me never think that I would have the opportunity to study abroad.
I don’t have much comfort zone outside, I have met many friends from different countries,
because with them, my Russian ability has improved greatly,
and I have come into contact with people from different cultural countries,
not only There are Japan and South Korea, Germany and France,
and more rare Central Asian countries, such as Azerbaijan and Kyrgyzstan.
Because of this experience, I started to learn to see things from a different perspective.
Most of the articles on the Internet are shared by backpackers
who are alone or by overseas workers. Because they come from spontaneous,
they will have a deeper observation and experience of the surrounding things.

Echoing the beginning of the text, why is there a situation where there is an answer but no answer?
Because the two ideas are fundamentally different. What students think is,
where is the fun place? What the professor thought was, what did you get for this trip?
The gap in the middle lies in the basic difference in the cognition of “learning”.
From elementary school to middle school, we accept all knowledge content in a receptive style.
We don’t have to think about anything.
As long as we open our eyes, take notes and copy the blackboard,
we can remember the exam. The boundary of a piece came too suddenly…

Should the line from seeing a lot to knowing a lot be blurred from an early age?
