What is SYME?

​常見問題

F.A.Q.

SYME是一天12小時的密集訓練課程,不用出國就可以體驗國外文化,每天只能用英文與老師交談,同時教 導你如何使英文和聖經生活化。

SYME是一個大家庭,我們鼓勵老師和學員在課餘時間也可以繼續一起相處、出去玩、分享神對他們生命的 影響!基督教生命之道訓練事工是一個非營利機構,老師們都是在自己的國家募款而來的,花費許多的心 力關懷來學習的學員。

SYME接受十八歲以上或高中畢業的基督徒和非基督徒學員, 來上課的學員要渴慕學習英文並且願意過基 督徒的生活方式。單身學員都需要住宿,把握機會沈浸在英文環境裡。

不是的!我們是非營利組織,我們的運作目的是在於分享神的福音、造就基督徒以及協助學員體驗國外文 化。

Is SYME free?

請問SYME是免費的嗎?

SYME is not free. Although all of our teachers are VOLUNTEERS or Missionaries (Thank you teachers!!!)  SYME still has basic costs, including student dorms, meals, materials, etc.

不是喔。雖然我們的老師們都是志工(謝謝老師們!!!但是學程仍然需要費用的支出,像是住宿 費、伙食費、教材費等等。

Note: Due to living arrangements/meals and class hours, the cost for attendance is different for married and unmarried students. Please message or call for more details.

由於已婚學員不需要住宿和晚餐費,而且參與課程的總時數比較少,所以已婚學員和單身學員的費用會有 所差別,如果需要知道細節,請與我們聯絡

Do I need to live in the dorm?

請問我是否需要住宿?

Are unmarried or single? Then yes, you need to stay in our dorms.

你身為未婚:是的,我們要求單身學員住宿。

Are you married? Then no!

你身為已婚:不用,我們鼓勵已婚學員下課後回家陪伴妻子/丈夫及家人。

We provide separate male and female dorms for students, these dorms are shared with our single foreign teachers so that you can build a deeper relationship with them.

我們所提供的宿舍分為男生宿舍和女生宿舍,並且單身的外國老師會和學員一起住宿。

*Why do I need to live in the dorm if I am not married?

請問為什麼未婚就要住宿舍?

Because SYME is designed to be an immersive experience. Our foreign teachers also live in the dorms with our students, so that students can have a more authentic [living-abroad] experience, without ever leaving the country!

SYME整個學程的核心在於國內留學,所以學員在宿舍依然可以與老師們用英文交流,好讓學 員即使不用出國也可以有更多的機會沈浸在英文環境中,享受更多元的體驗。

Do I need to be a Christian to attend SYME?

請問只有基督徒才能參加 SYME嗎?

You do not need to be a Christian. As long as you understand that much of our classes are about God, the Bible, and Christianity, and you are willing to participate in our program, we are happy to have you join us.

不是喔!雖然許多課程中 會談論到聖經、上帝、以及關於基督教的觀點,但是只要學員不排斥,我們很歡迎每個人參加!

Can my child attend SYME?

請問我的小孩是否能參加SYME?

No, sorry. Our curriculum is designed for adults.

不好意思,我們的課程對象為成人(18以上或高中畢業)

Students must be 18 years old OR have completed high school in order to attend.

Am I too old to attend SYME?

請問有針對年長學員的年齡限制嗎?

No. We often have students in their 40s and 50s and have even had several students over 60 years old.

沒有啦!我們有許多學員都是四五十歲以上的,有些學員甚至還超過六十歲喔!

Can I choose to take classes separately, instead of studying full-time?

請問我可以隨機選課嗎?還是我需要全時間在這裡上課?

No. Our curriculum is designed to be an immersive experience. Anything less would not allow students to achieve the desired results.

抱歉!我們所設計的課程目的是為了要讓學員沈浸在英文環境中,如果讓學員 自由選課,便無法達到這個目的。
