Chelsea’s Ulpan Presentation

Hey everyone, below is the Ulpan presentation I gave today in Hebrew…I will also roughly translate it in English:

הרבה ילדים בארצות הברית הולכים למחנה קיץ.
אני הלכתי למחנה קיץ “קריין לייק” או בעברית: “אגם עגור“. זה מקום יפה בין ההרים במסאצ’וסטס. בניהדודים שלי וגם האחות שלי הלכו לאותו מחנה קיץּ וכשהייתי בת תשע ההורים שלי שלחו גם אותי.  היוםהראשון לא היה קל בשבילי, אבל עם עזרה מהמשפחה הִכַּרתי הרבה אנשים.  החברות שלי אהבו אתהבנים אבל בשבילי, הבנים לא היו חשובים… עד שהייתי בת שְׁתֵים עֶשְׂרֵה, כשכל הבנות האחרות התחילולהתנשק עם בחור.
אהבתי רק בחור אחד.  השם שלו דן והוא שיחק בייסבול ולקרוס.  דיברנו ולפעמים אהבתי לשחות איתובאגם. יש לו שיער ג’ינג’י (אדום) והוא היה נחמד ומעניין… ורציתי להתנשק איתו. זאת היתה הנשיקההראשונה שלי.
יום אחד קבוצת הגיל שלי נסעה לבוסטון באוטובוס. ישבתי באוטובוס מאחור, עם החברה שלי אלכּס. כלהבחורים התחילו לשחק את המשחק “שבע דקות בגן עדן.”  היה כיף וצחקנו הרבה.  אז אלכּס אמרה שאניצריכה להתנשק עם דן.
היו שירותים באוטובוס ושָׁם כל הבחורים התנשקו עם הבחורות.  דן ואני היינו עצבניים אבל הלכנולשירותים.
סגרנו את הדלת והתחַלנו להתנשק.  באותו רגע האוטובוס עצר וירדנו ודן נתן לי נשיקה.  היה דם על הפניםשלי וכשרצתי מהשירותים, המדריכה שלי ראתה אותי עם הדם ושאלה אותי “צ’לסי מה קרה?!”  עניתי לה,ש”זאת היתה הנשיקה הראשונה שלי!”
“A lot of kids in America go to summer camp.  I went to Crane Lake camp, which is located in a beautiful place between the mountains in Massachusetts.  My cousins and my sister went to this same camp, and when I was nine years old, my parents sent me there too.  The first day way difficult, but with help from my family, I met a lot of people.  My girl friends were very interested in boys, but they were not important to me…until I turned 12 and all of the other girls started to kiss the boys.
I liked just one boy, and his name was Dan.  He played sports and we used to talk and sometimes we would swim together in the lake.  He had red hair and he was nice and interesting…and I wanted to have my first kiss with him.
One day, my age group went on a trip to Boston, on a bus.  I sat in the back with my friend, Alex, and all of the kids started to play ‘seven minutes in heaven’.  It was fun and we laughed a lot.  Then, Alex said that I should partner with Dan and kiss him.
There was a bathroom on the bus that we were using for the game, where all of the boys were kissing the girls.  Dan and I were nervous, but we went into the bathroom.
We closed the door and we started to kiss.  At that moment, the bus stopped short, we fell, and Dan bit me.  There was blood on my face and when I ran from the bathroom, my counselor saw me, with the blood, and asked, ‘Chelsea, what happened?!’  I answered her, ‘I just had my first kiss!'”
The presentation went well and the class laughed a lot at the story.  Also, for the past two days, I have completely understood what the teacher has presented in class, which is a great feeling.  I also went to a lecture today about current events in Israel and got an interesting and comprehensive perspective on various domestic and international issues, including Israel’s budget issues, the ultra-Orthodox and the military, and of course Iran and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.  All in all, another successful and informative day in Haifa 🙂
