[明珠人物]MAX

恩美幼儿园,外教


在明珠的教师队伍中,有一群这样的人,他们有着不同的肤色,来自不同的国家,有着不同的文化背景,却不约而同来到中国,相聚在明珠。

在明珠发展的过程中,外籍教师的队伍也在不断壮大,而今天,我们要带来的这位明珠人物,就是来自俄罗斯的外籍教师——MAX,

MAX的全名是Пименов Максим Сергеевич.Pimenov Maxim Sergeevich,但他更愿意让别人称他为MAX。


你一定会很好奇,这些外籍老师为什么会愿意离开故乡,来到中国。但对于MAX而言,最初的原因很简单,中国的传统文化吸引了他。刚开始,MAX的身份是一名好奇的游客,从东到西,自南向北,来中国的四年时间,MAX不仅走过了北京、山西、成都、天津、乌鲁木齐这些大城市,也游历了众多的高山大川。旅途中MAX全程用招手搭车的方式完成了向目的地的进发。热情的货车司机,好奇的私家车主,让初到中国,语言不通的MAX几乎天天上演 “人在囧途”。但MAX说,这些困难比起自己沿途所收获的,都算不上什么。就像翻山越岭之后美景一样,中国的茶文化、道德经、老子、儒家文化,让MAX大为着迷并深深吸引了他。



两年前,MAX开启了中国的新旅程——在山西怀仁当一名中学外教老师,辅导初中生的英语。虽然是新体验,但游历各地的丰富经历,让他和孩子在交流中如鱼得水,乐天好学的性格帮助他在教学工作中更加舒适。结束山西的工作之后,他又参加了在秦皇岛的夏令营,一次偶然的机会,MAX来到了武汉,来到了恩美幼儿园。


MAX之前在俄罗斯读大学的时候,学的是计算机专业,毕业后从事的也是IT工程师工作,对于性格活泼的他来说,这份工作是枯燥无味的。于是当坚持了一段时间后,MAX果断选择了放弃,而在游历中国偶然拾起的教师这一份工作,他却认为这是一个光荣的职业,亦是一种很棒的人生体验。

MAX有着非凡的教学热情,也正是这个特点,让他产生了转型、去做一名教师的想法。

他坦言,过去的经历对现在的工作帮助很大。对于现在自己从事的、教师这份职业,他认为最值得高兴的是让孩子们喜欢上英语,体会学习英语的乐趣,进而激发孩子们学习英语的积极性。现在,每天,在恩美幼儿园,他把生活的元素生动的融入教学中,让整个课程更具有吸引力和创意。MAX说,想让课堂变好,在课外做的很多准备都是有帮助的。他会找很多材料去为课堂准备。

对此,他颇为自豪地说:“我懂孩子们懂得如何与他们相处,也愿意花时间去懂他们,在我的课堂上,没有感觉在上课,更多的是我们开心的在一起玩。其实学习也可以是件很有趣的事。”他用纯正的英语发音、活力无限的授课方式,带领着孩子们在音乐和游戏中学习,并配合肢体动作加深对英语的印象。孩子们就在唱唱跳跳中,在游戏中,轻松地学习英语。

谈到对中国幼儿园和家长的印象,MAX打了个比方:“中国的父母都希望为孩子提供最好的,为他们更好的未来而努力,但随着孩子一天一天长大,父母却还是认为他们还是孩子。” 在这位外国老师看来,这是一件“不太能理解的事”。在本次采访中, “interesting”是出现频率很高的一个词。教育从兴趣开始,语言学习也一样,从小就要打好牢固的基础。

在我们问到学习英语有没有什么秘诀,或者是需不需要人督促学习的时候,MAX很惊讶的说,学习是不需要督促的,兴趣是最好的老师,对英语有了兴趣,才会在生活中才不间段的给自己创造机会去接触,去锻炼自己的表达方式和逻辑,多阅读,小到英文的说明书,大到看一部片子,这些都是很好的语言学习方式。

帅气阳光的MAX在幼儿园的人缘非常不错,但是最打动老师们的还是他全情投入的工作态度,班上的孩子弄脏衣服,保育员不在的时候,他主动抱过孩子,帮忙清洗,而蒙氏的示范工作中,对于年纪最小的孩子,他也会给与很多的关注,是一个非常细心和温柔的人,而课堂气氛他也完全可以带动,孩子们很喜欢他。


对于一个外国人来说,能在一个完全陌生的国度里,一个陌生的城市里度过两年,对这个国家历史文化的热爱自然不必说,但也还是会有不习惯的时候。在一个人口密集的城市里,对于一群关注他人的热心中国人,当然还是会有不适应的,但是MAX的生活态度很积极乐观,他认为人和人之间是需要换位思考的,对于好奇的注视,他可以理解。

在采访中,MAX还兴致满满的告诉我们,他来到恩美幼儿园后,慢慢开始学习汉语,目前觉得汉语的音调是一个难点,因为在俄语和英文中都没有声调,所以对声调极其不敏感。他平时喜欢登山,休息的时候也会做做饭,像面食,蔬菜沙拉这些他还是很拿手的,他还用普通话告诉我们他喜欢武汉的热干面,每三天都要吃一次,煎包,煎饼果子也是他经常选择的小吃,从饮食上看来,他已经入乡随俗融入这座城市了。

Welcome to China,MAX。

最后送上MAX为我们带来的,一首他自弹自唱的《From Russia with love》。




from Russia with love


In the faculty of pearl, there is a group of people, they have different color of skin, come from different countries and have different cultural background, but we came to China, meet in Lustrous Peral International Education Group, in the process of the development of the Lustrous Peral International Education Group, foreign teachers team is also growing, and today, Our SUNNYman, is the foreign teachers from Russia -- MAX.

MAX's full name is П и м е н о kind guide М а seem с и м С е р f е е kind guide и discusses some related problems. Pimenov Maxim Sergeevich, but he is more willing to let others call him MAX.


You will be wondering why these foreign teachers are willing to leave their hometown and come to China. But for MAX, the initial reason was simple: China's traditional culture appealed to him. At first, the identity of the MAX is a curious visitors, from east to west, from south to north, to come to China four years, MAX is not only through Beijing, Shanxi, Chengdu, Tianjin, urumqi, the big cities, also traveled to many high mountains and great rivers. During the trip, MAX made his way to his destination by waving his hand. Enthusiastic truck driver, curious private car owner, let the first come to China, the language of the result of the MAX almost daily "people in lost road". But, says MAX, these difficulties are nothing compared to what you get along the way. Like the beautiful scenery after mountains and mountains, China's tea culture, moral classics,LAOZI and Confucian culture fascinated and fascinated MAX.


Two years ago, MAX started a new journey in China, where he worked as a middle school foreign teacher and tutored middle school students in English. Although it is a new experience, the rich experience in various places makes him and his child enjoy the communication with him, and he is more comfortable in his teaching work. After finishing his work in Shanxi, he took part in a summer camp in Qinhuangdao, where he came to the NMK kindergarten.

Before MAX, he studied computer science in Russia and worked as an IT engineer after graduation. For him, the job was boring. So after a period of time when, MAX decisively chose to give up, and travel in China accidentally picked up the teacher this job, but he thought it was a glorious career, also is a great experience.

MAX has an extraordinary passion for teaching, which is what makes him transform and become a teacher.

He admits that past experiences have helped a lot. For now you are engaged in, the teacher this profession, he thought the most it is great that let children like English, to experience the fun of learning English, to stimulate the enthusiasm of the children to learn English. Now, every day, in NMK kindergarten, he brings the elements of life into teaching and makes the whole course more attractive and creative. MAX says that many of the preparations made outside the classroom are helpful to make the class better. He will find a lot of materials to prepare for the class.


To this, he is proud to say: "I know the children know how to get along with them, also would like to take the time to understand them, in my class, no feeling in the class, more is our happy playing together. Learning can be fun, too. He teaches the children in music and games with his pure English pronunciation and dynamic teaching methods, and he also helps to impress the English with his body movements. The children are singing and dancing, learning English easily in the game.

Impression of Chinese kindergarten and parents, MAX played an example: "Chinese parents want for their children to provide the best, strive for a better future for them, but as the children grew up day by day, parents still think they are still children." To the foreign teacher, it was "a little bit of a mystery". In this interview, "interesting" is a word with high frequency. Education starts with interest, and language learning is the same, so we should build a solid foundation from childhood.


When we asked is there any secret of learning English, or need not to need people urge to learn, said MAX surprised, learning does not need to supervise and urge, interest is the best teacher, has the interest in English, will only in the life period between don't contact, to create your own opportunity to exercise their own expression and logic, read more, small to English manual, big enough to see a film, these are all very good way to language learning.


Handsome sunshine MAX in kindergarten's popularity is very good, but the most impressed by the teachers or his full engagement of the work attitude, children of dirty clothes in the class, in the absence of the nurse, he hugged the child, to help clean, and the pilot work of the montessori, grade for the youngest child, he will also give a lot of attention, is a very careful and gentle man, and classroom atmosphere he also can drive, the children like him very much.


For a foreigner, can be in a completely strange country, spent two years in a strange city, the love of the national history and culture natural needless to say, but also there will be not used. In a densely populated cities, for the Chinese the zeal of a group of attention to others, or there will be not adapt to, of course, but MAX is very positive and optimistic life attitude, he think between person and person is need the perspective-taking, for the curious eyes and gaze, he can understand.

In the interview, MAX had enjoyed full told us that he came to after the NMK kindergarten, and slowly started to learn Chinese, now feel the tone of Chinese is a difficult point, because have no voice in the Russian and English, so is extremely not sensitive to the tone. He likes mountaineering, rest will do cook, like pasta, vegetable salad that he is very good, he also told us that he likes wuhan hot-and-dry noodles in mandarin, once every three days to eat, Fried package, and his often choose the pancake fruit snacks, from the diet on the point of view, he had come into the city.

Welcome to China, MAX. 

and finally to MAX for us, a song From Russia with love, which he played himself.
