《Non-Violent Communication》 This is a class about communication through emotional interacting. If a conflict happens usually people would act like a jackal, whether shouting or escaping our emotions but not facing real problems. There're 4 steps in Non-Violent Communication: Observation, Feelings, Needs and Request. Behind every feeling there's a need. Once you observe your feeling, you know what the need is. NVC recommends people to share their feeling with others, because every person has their own criteria of need. One thing I like the best in NVC is that usually the classroom is spacious. We sit in a mat or a chair. Students felt really relief in the class or in the way we interact with Finnish teachers here, more like friends than teacher and students, everybody is so quiet and in peace, without pressure or annoying examinations, the education system here. Soon I found it hard to implement NVC into practice, usually we don't discuss our feelings with others due to tons of reasons: for jobs, for the peace of positions, for everything. As a result, me before once actually despise NVC method, thought it's a fake theory, however, later in school I have several arguments with one of my friend, I started to give it a try. Soon, the magic power of NVC demonstrated its power and it worked like a charm. Ever since, when I face strong emotions I calm down first, observe that why I felt sad/angry/confused/ecstatic. Again, behind every feeling there's a need. Find out your need and you can get control of your body, whether mentally or physically. In this class, you'll not only learn the NVC theory, the way or method of meditation, get further control of your mind and body. In my opinion, sometimes it's better to know more about soft knowledge but not only solid ability for yourself.(309字)

《School》: Laurea University of Applied Science has a lot of chances of internship or part-time job opportunities. There're 7 different campus in Laurea and the one where I study is Laurea-Tikkurilla Campus, one of the most convenient campus among these. 《HOAS student office》:There're three mainly places for HOAS student flats: Helsinki(Capital, 30 mins to Laurea-Tikkurilla; Pasila, said to be the best place,5 mins to Helsinki; 10 mins to Campus; Vantaa, where I live, 5 mins to School but 45 mins to Helsinki. Rent Price differences: Helsinki>Pasila>Vantaa My rent per month is 389euro / month Select the type of your flat and rent budget carefully: Studio(shared room without privacy) or Dormitory(Private rooms with shared restroom and kitchen) The closer to Helsinki, the more expensive the rent is. The A/C is really bad, you'll still feel cold in the endless winter nights. Fixing broken stuff for free. Free Sauna to reserve. 《Weather》: Winter:0 to -20 degree / Summer : 10 degree above. In 2017 it snows from December to April. Day light from 6 hours per day to 19 hours per day. Better get used to sleep in such bright light or taping your curtain to the window to prevent sunlight in the evening. 《Food》: It's very expensive to eat out(12euro above), better cook on your own. Choose Lidl market(German market) for the best bargain price. 《Clothes》:In winter, gloves are necessary for snowing weather. Stockmann offers the best quality and is the most famous department store in northern Europe. 《Transportation》: 50 euro/ month for infinite ride of metro, bus and tram.(256字)

(四)自我成長

《Cultural Shock》: Finnish people are very shy and quiet ethic group; more or less, Taiwanese are shy as well, so actually I don't feel really uncomfortable. Secondly, I felt surprised how clean the water is, I've never seen people buy water from the store, people just drink from the tap and never heard of anyone feel ill because of it. 《Language Barrier》Before I came to Finland, once I was worried about the Taiwanese accent or my listening comprehension here. 《Meals every day》 One of the biggest challenge I encounter is the food. Before the exchange year, I never cook on my own when I was still in Taiwan. Therefore, the start of my exchange year is a miserable start. 《Endless Winter》The winter in Finland is long, quiet and dark, you can easily feel depression or nothing to do at home or even go out, so it's important to find out your passion or interest to (Enhance yourself/Killing some time). Luckily, I realized my passion in Finland: Making videos to share about my life in Finland and share Finnish cultural to people. 《About the class》Finnish education doesn't value progress, they value the equality of learning. In fact, there's is no reason for an Asian people to feel pressure in studying in Finland. The only thing you'll be worried about is too much casual time, too less classes for you. I'll say what matter is how you conquered the challenge but how you get control of your heart to get cross every difficulties you faced.(257字)

(五)大三出國建議

1: There're two school cooperate with Tamkang University: Laurea University of Applied Sciences and University of Turku. Laurea is kind of metropolis place; meanwhile University of Turku is countryside atmosphere. 2: Know your purpose of choosing Finland to exchange, Finnish acquires good English ability, convenient to live here, nevertheless, it's not Native-English country. You have to motivate yourself or be positive if you want to improve your language skills. 3: There're not much entertainment in Finland, usually people do sauna and clubbing, that's all for winter. It's important to cultivate your interest or passion. Only if you find your passion you won't waste your time and do something meaningful. 4: Visit Finland as soon as you can (The first month rent in HOAS is free) Most of the festivals are in Summer: July:Throwing cellphone competition; August: Carrying wife competition. Before there're even Sauna competition, sadly, it canceled 8 years ago because one man died in the final. 5: Learn at least one or two recipe in Taiwan, the price in Finland on average is triple the price in Taiwan. Eat out in a restaurant is around 15 euro, I recommend you cook on your own. Download the app:iCook愛料理 if you're a rookie in cooking. 6: There're not much daylight during winter, consume Vitamin D daily to prevent your depression in winter. It's a weird feeling for Taiwanese people who live in tropical area. 7: For more information, subscribe my channel(SteveFinland),which provides my experience in Daily life and knowledge of Finland https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsXNWA0Ht24U4rUvrO9cMVg?view_as=subscriber (258字)
