“他们的眼中闪烁着求知欲” “You could see in their eyes their desire to learn”

“他们的眼中闪烁着求知欲” (Please scroll down to see the English version) 真是印证了“时光如剑,岁月如梭”这句话,转眼间我们就已经快要告别严冬迎来暖春,同时也即将迎来2014年的春节,对于中国人这意味着将要真正地踏入2014。在这个全中国都在迎接春节到来的时候,海上青焙坊的第六批学生也已经学习了半年的课程了。 到现在我还记得第一次见他们他们给我的感觉,青涩的、腼腆的、怯怯的。他们对上海和烘焙的所有都充满了好奇,眼睛里也透露着想要探寻新事物的欲望,那是想要学习的欲望。从他们的身上我仿佛看到了几年前的自己,对他们有着陌生而又熟悉的感觉。也记得第一次给他们上完烘焙课试吃所有产品的时候,每个同学都对法式面包的代表产品法棍和乡村面包表现出了排斥,因为从来没有吃过那么硬的面包所以接受不了。而现在的所有的同学只选择吃法式面包。我觉得这是我们成功的第一小步,因为从事一个行业就要喜欢自己的工作。对于烘焙师来说是要爱上面包,这一点,我们的学生做到了。 当然,我们的学生这半年不只是学习了烘焙。由于我们的学生都是因为家庭的原因没有机会获取更多的知识,所以我们安排了一些英语课、生活技能课。通过这半年的学习,他们的英语水平提高了很多。有时候在上烘焙课的时候从嘴里出来的是英语,这让我意外也让我惊喜。 通过这些课程的学习和在海上青焙坊这个大家庭的熏陶,学生们的性格上也发生了很大的变化。那些以前害怕和人接触的同学现在也慢慢的建立了自信,会主动和人交流;那些以前总是以自我为中心的同学也开始关心身边的人了;那些卫生习惯不是很好的同学现在也慢慢的爱干净了;那些上课喜欢有小动作的同学现在上课也开始认真了。在实习的过程中碰到问题也会自己解决了。 作为他们的烘焙老师,看到他们的进步我非常感动。虽然在技术上他们还处在初级阶段,难能可贵的是他们每个人的学习态度都是非常积极的,这是做所有事情的基础。技术不是说用一年的时间好好学就可以学的非常好,这个是需要自己的勤奋努力和长时间的经验积累。 通过这半年的授课我很荣幸的见证了他们的成长:从对烘焙完全不了解到现在认识所有的烘焙原料、烘焙设备。甚至是对整个烘焙行业,他们也都有了大概的了解和简单的认识,我深深地相信在海上青焙坊的帮助下和通过他们自己的努力,他们每个人都会有一个很美好的未来。 王莉,海上青焙坊烘焙老师 “You could see in their eyes their desire to learn” How time flies! In the blink of an eye, we are going to say goodbye to the severe winter and welcome the warm spring
