体会北京

来北京是我一生中最大的愿望。我还是五六岁的小孩时﹐便常常听妈妈讲有关北京的情况和一些故事﹐那时候﹐去北京变成了我的一个梦想。我来北京语言文化大学学习汉语。来了好几天还没习惯﹐因为北京跟我原来居住的城市不一样。比如说﹐北京的天气和我住的城市有很大的区别。北京一年有春夏秋冬四个季节。冬天的时间最长﹐冬天的天气很冷﹐最冷的时候到过零下22摄氏度﹐常常刮风﹐有时候下雪。这时候我很喜欢滑冰﹐冬天在北海*滑冰很有意思。春天的天气很暖和﹐树绿了﹐花儿开了﹐公园里人也多了。春天的时间不太长﹐从6月到8月是北京的夏天。夏天的天气不太热﹐最热的时候是7月。7月8月常常下雨﹐这时候我很喜欢去北海公园游泳和钓鱼。9月﹐北京的秋天到了﹐秋天是北京最好的季节﹐天气很凉快﹐不冷也不热﹐几乎天天都是晴天。11月到了﹐香山的树叶都红了﹐这时候我很喜欢跟我的中国朋友去看漂亮的红叶。我已经去参观过很多名胜古蹟和高大的建筑﹐比如雄伟的天安门*﹐人民大会堂*﹐人民英雄纪念碑*。长城是世界七大奇迹之一﹐跟埃及*的金字塔一样。我也去过很多博物馆。我发现北京也是一个风景秀丽的城市﹐有大自然的景色﹐比如颐和园﹐它驰名中外﹐我去参观的时候﹐感到眼花缭乱。它像大花园中的宫殿﹐週围有山水﹐我认为这个宫殿可以和巴比伦花园*媲美。中国人民是很可爱和很有意思的人民。在街上﹐公共汽车上﹐我经常发现中国人的热情。比如说当我迷路﹐在路上查看地图时﹐便会有陌生的中国人过来告诉我怎么走。在中国跟陌生人很容易交流。我觉得中国人民跟埃及人民一样﹐他们都是勤劳和勇敢的人民﹐他们以吃苦耐劳着称于世。随着时间的延长﹐我对北京的这种爱也越来越深了。(人民日报海外版﹐1998年10月8日﹐3版﹔作者﹕塞玛哈(北京语言文化大学埃及留学生)﹔646字)北海﹕The Beihai Park.天安门﹕TiananmenSquare.人民大会堂﹕Great Hall of the People.人民英雄纪念碑﹕Monument to the Heros of the Revolution.埃及﹕Egypt.巴比伦花园﹕The gardens of Babylon.
