(二)課程學習

照片說明:Group Presentation

【照片說明:Group Presentation 】

My favor lecture is inequality and diversity of society. That is a harsh lecture because the teacher will randomly choose anyone to answer the question. Sometime teacher would ask us to debate about the present social issue. We also was asked to draw a poster in group discussion to explain our idea. Except the group discussion, lecturer sometime gives us some new theories to research online immediately and then we will announce in front of everyone. The lecture is about the social diversity to manifest and explain orthodoxy. We connect some social theories to the mass media and exchange the different experiences of daily life. There are two foreign students in class, me and a France girl. Sometime we cannot really understand what the teacher said, and then I felt really stressful when the time passed to group discussion. At least, my group member is very helpful, when I have any question they would help me to figure out. But the lecturer would speak slowly just because there are some foreign student in class. In this way, my English listening has improved a lot in short half year. These are two assignments have to hang in in the middle and end of the semester. The first assignment we have to find out a least four resource in our daily life to construct and analyze to the topic. The second one is 2000 words to analyze social issue in the different dimension. For instance, I chose the topic of “ gender is social construction.” In my words, the most different between the west and east education is students’ reaction. In this course, there are one hour of lecture for around 50 people, and two hours of module for around 15 people. The lecture is about Power Point to explain general ideology. And then the module part is teacher run some activities to discuss and debate by group with group. In shortly, I really enjoy this course which bring me significant growth of English and opportunity to interact with English group member. The lecture name is inequality, diversity and society by Sheila Ann Quaid. (348字)

Sunderland is extremely cold in 2018. The coldest temperature is minus seven. I heard my friend said that last year did not snow. However, in this year, it almost snows every week. It even got a serious snowstorm once and them the bus and university just stop running for two days. Although this city calls Sunderland, it is rarely sunny such as a typical English whether, namely, it is always drizzling. But inside the room is totally warm because of heater. Well, people will think live in England will much more expensive than Taiwan. Yet, but it is not in Sunderland, there is a market near the accommodation of university. Some ingredient in there is even cheaper than Taiwan, such as chicken leg or vegetable. I live in the Clanny House of university accommodation where is cheaper than others and any hardware is still good situation such as heater and Wi-Fi speed. All bill is include, one week is around 80 pound. However, Clanny House is far to city campus by walking for around 15 minutes. But don’t worry there are free buses commuting from campus to accommodation and city space, only have to show the student identity card. If someone missing Chinese food, you also can take the train to Newcastle, there are some Chinese markets and restaurant. On the aspect of vacation time, there are two longer vacations during Christmas and spring break both are around one month, namely, we can travel around whole Europe in this two vocation. (249字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:group discussion

【照片說明:group discussion 】

The most difficult part for me to live in abroad is living without family. It is seems like easy for just one year, but actually we have to leave our comfort zone where we already have been familiar with. The new situation we will meet is different culture, environment and foreign friend. Not like Asia people, black and European people are different to get along with. For instance, one girl is from north Europe, she likes to dancing and singing whole night which make me cannot sleep well every day and turn me into crazy. There are many different things will happen around us during the abroad studying. We need to figure out how to deal with everything independently. This process make us stronger and bravely face other challenge in the future. On the other hand, the race discrimination rarely happen in Sunderland. Actually, there are many Chinese people there even some Chinese market. I only met one discriminate situation which happened in group discussion, one girl had never talked to me when we discussed or I tried to ask her questions. It seems like she just ignore me without truly understanding who am I. But generally to say, everyone is still nice and helpful. I has changed a lot in the aspect of problem-solving and independently deal with any situation. In my word, this year is rough and reward with precious experience, I have conquered my fear of being alone in a new environment even deeply understanding myself in different aspects. (252字)

(五)大三出國建議

To study abroad is a precious experience, which help us to grow social management skill with different culture. Except the foreign experience, developing self-esteem and confidence when communicate with stranger is also important social skill. During this year, I often feel very lonely, because my good friends and family all are in Taiwan and I am isolated which make me become much stronger. It is the most specially and precious experience that learning how to live alone in an unfamiliar environment. During the class, there are many situation make me feel stressful and depressed, for example, when I am the only foreign student in the class, when teacher speaks English so fast, or when I need to find group member and no one want to be a team with mem…etc. These experiences make me feel awful but also bring me significant growth. Moreover, do not feel afraid to make a brave attempt which will make us become different. Perhaps, some people are willing to fine a part-time job during the exchanging year, it is good change to choose Sunderland. Because of tier4 visa provide students 20 hours per week for legal working, the salary is around two times more than Taiwanese minimum salary. I have found a job in Pizza Hut near me accommodation. Which is special opportunity to understand different kind of accent and ability for problem-solving. On the other hand, it also help us to quickly adapt into a new environment. In conclusion, these year I have been rewarded with different aspect of significant growth because I do not feel afraid to try different things. (267字)
