【看CP學英文】俄羅斯西伯利亞東北部的奧伊米亞康素有「世界上最寒冷的村落」之稱號,夜間均溫零下58度,儘管天氣嚴寒,當地學童還是必須走路上學。12月8日,當日早上溫度零下51度,未達零下52度的放假標準,因此當地學校學童必須頂著嚴寒走路上學。

Oymyakon in Russia’s Sakha Republic of north-eastern Siberia, also called the Pole of Cold, is one of the coldest inhabited places on Earth; and the average nighttime temperature is -58 degrees. Despite the cold weather, local children still have to walk to school.

On Dec. 8 when the temperature was at –51 degrees Celcius, students still had to make the walk to school as it was one degree short of schools closing.

在世界最寒冷的小鎮上僅有一所學校,來自別村落的學童必須搭公車,約10到18分鐘的路程才能抵達學校;而村落裡的孩童大多和父母、狗狗走路上學。

There is only one school in this area so students from other villages need to take a 10-18 minute bus ride to arrive at school.

On the other hand, most of the local children walk with their parents and oftentimes, dogs, to school.

學校上學時間從早上9點到傍晚5點,然因緯度高,孩童時常出門時尚未天亮,放學後天已轉黑。

School starts at 9 am every morning and lets out at 5 p.m.; however, because of the high latitude of the area, children often head out when it’s still pitch black outside, and head home 3 hours after sunset.

當地攝影師席夫塞福(Semyon Sivtsev)告訴《西伯利亞時報》 (Siberian Times) ,他早上9點,在零下51度的嚴寒氣候拍攝孩童上學,「感覺有多冷呢?我必須隨時帶著手套,非常不舒服,但若未戴手套我的手指會凍傷,所以能在短時間內盡速拍攝

Local photographer Semyon Sivtsev told the “Siberian Times” that he began filming at 9 a.m. under cover of the bleak weather.

When asked how cold it felt, Sivtsev answered, “I had to keep my gloves on which wasn’t very comfortable, but otherwise my fingers would have been frostbitten, and I could only film in very short bursts.”
