PART 1 地点类-祖国

Q1:Which part of your country do you want to live in?

I would prefer to live in the countryside, rather than where I live at the moment in the heart of one of the bigger cities in England. There is a lot of noise and too many people, so more space would be nice. Although at the same time, it would be good to live within walking distance of my workplace – so perhaps not too far outside of the urban area.

Q2:What makes you feel proud of your country?

I am proud of England because of its great history. It once held an empire encompassing a full quarter of the globe or more, and it was said that ‘the sun never sets’ upon it. Even after the dissolution of this, we have retained an impressive position of saliency upon the world stage. We

are a small island nation that should be pretty insignificant in the scheme of things, and yet through our ingenuity and our spirit we have managed to maintain our situation as a great power.

Q3:Do you know the history of your country well?

Yes, I have long taken quite an active interest in the history of Britain, and how our history fits into that of the broader globe. It is quite an exciting sweep of grand narratives, so there is always more for us to explore and to interrelate with. It is easy to get lost in it, but then it is also easy to find one’s self, one’s ancestors, likewise, within its folds. More people should take an interest in their history, their heritage – and use it to connect with each other, as well.

Q4:Will you stay in China in the future?

I may stay in China in the future, although I am quite keen to get back to the more familiar culture (and language) of my home country, on the other side of the world. I am thankful for the opportunities that I have benefitted from during my time here, but home is where the heart is. And my home lies back across Eurasia on the far side of Europe in England.

PART 1 地点类-博物馆

Q1:Do you think museums are important?

Museums have a role to play to help illustrate a city or
country’s history and cultural traditions. It would be a crying shame if they didn’t exist anymore. They are a big tourist attraction here in the UK especially. I enjoy going to see museums when I visit different countries too. It’s usually one of the first places I’ll try to go and see. However, people want to know important relics from history are being kept safe and sound. Unfortunately museums have been targets for criminals in recent times.

Q2:Are there many museums in your hometown?

There are quite a few here in London. My city has a wonderfully rich history and museums help to provide a platform for people to experience it. I even go down to the science and technology museum once every few years to keep an eye on new exhibits. In the past I would go to other museums showcasing history as part of school trips or a day out with family. Millions of tourists come here every year to visit the museums in my hometown. It’s a big part of my hometown.

Q3:Do you often visit a museum?

Nowadays I find myself going to the museum less and less, and it’s not because I don’t like them anymore. I just don’t have the time to visit. When I was a child I would go at least once or twice a year to different museums in my hometown. I look back on it fondly. I will try and get to the science and technology museum in London at some point in the near future.

Q4:When was the last time you visited a museum?

It must have been two or three years ago now. Not recently though. `The last time I went to a museum was in America actually. I was there on holiday and checked out the Hollywood Museum. It was quite spectacular actually. I was amused by all the waxed figures of all the super famous

celebrities. I took a few pictures posed next to them. It was such a great time!
