(一)基本資料

2017/8/21 It was the date that i first entered the land of America and started my junior aboard life. I attended Indiana University of Pennsylvania and as you saw it located in Pennsylvania state. In the first semester, most of courses i selected were related to the department of English. As for the second semester, i chose different courses from different department which i have more interested in. 2018/5/12 I finished all of studies and came back my lovely home. (78字)

Before I came to America, I wish I could learn Spanish. At that time, many people persuaded me not to learn this language because it was difficult to the beginner. However, I insisted on taking the course and never regretting the decision. In fact, except for English, Spanish was second language that widely used in America. With the rise of Latino group in American society, even some region of the state only used Spanish instead of English. Therefore, I thought it was a best place to learn second foreign language. The professor was friendly and patient. She treated everyone fairly and they had the opportunity to practice Spanish. At first, she tried her best to use simple Spanish to teach us. We tried to understand the meaning through the body language or rarely English illustration. Besides, if we wanted to speak in the class, we should use Spanish to communicate. The process was tough and challenge because I didn’t have any basis and always felt confused on the class. Fortunately, I had a great progress by repeating the words and frequent practicing it with other classmate. Nowadays I not only understood the meaning but I was able to speak complete sentence. The method was successful and acquired a language naturally. If you had the passion on Spanish, I suggested you could choose the course. In addition, I also recommended another course called “public speaking”. If you really needed the elective course, you would think about it. The class focused on how to give a professional speech and offered some tips. The professor was nice and the atmosphere was ease. However, there was a condition if you wanted to select the course. You must dare to speak in front of the class and showed the confidence while giving the presentation. It was practical and helpful to future career development.(309字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:our residential area-wallwork hall】

The weather in America was contrary to Taiwan and it was cold and dry. In general, there will be snowing from January to March. But you didn’t have to worry about it, the indoor would have heater and considerably warm. Although it would be heavy snow, there were rare probability to cancel the class. The campus was larger than Lanyang campus and you could see the squirrel or some animals anywhere. If your classes were at different classroom, you should pay attention to time and walked a little bit distances. Furthermore, I thought the campus was an isolated region. If you wanted to buy some necessary, you should go to Wal-Mart, TJ Maxx or Martin. It usually spent several hours on taking bus and not very convenient. So when you had to go there, you could write list of items and buy once. Of course, if you intended to buy luxuries, you could rent a car and drove to Outlet or Mall in Pittsburgh. Finally, the university offered the residence hall for international student, so you didn’t have to worry about problem of rented room. But there was one thing that everyone had to mind was the alert system. If they induced the smoke, the alert would react and everyone had to leave the room. Hence, you should avoid cooking or smoking in the room as possible. After all, you must not hope that all of people forced to go out of the dorm at zero degree Celsius because of you.(253字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:Join the event from ISF】

It was a normal phenomenon that you suffered from the struggle or felt helpless. I thought it was important to adjust my thoughts and find a way to deal with. First all, I maintained a curious and tolerant attitude. As you knew, America was a melting pot and people from all around the world gathered here. They came from different countries and brought distinct culture. Perhaps their cultures were totally different than me or similar to me, I still respected and accepted them. I would rather make one friend than build one enemy. Faced with other’s hostility, I chose to ignore them and live my own way. I preferred live without caring other’s opinion to live under the comment. Moreover, don’t be shy to ask for assist when you’re in need. Actually, at the first time I arrived in America, I had the trouble to talk with local people because I worried I used wrong grammar or vocabularies. But later it proved that my thinking was false and they didn’t care about it. as long as you asked, they definitely would help you. Instead, it was your loss if you kept silence. Finally, I wanted to recommended some activities that you could share cultural exchange with other countries people. You could join the program that made a pair with local American family and experienced their life. Or you were able to participate the event from ISF, they always held some activities for international student every Friday. Also, the Skillzone held conversation corner every Thursday and you could chat with other international student.(267字)

(五)大三出國建議

Live in the foreign countries not like in Taiwan, you should prepare some items beforehand in case you’re in emergency. For example, medicine or insurance. Having a healthy body is important because medical expense in America is very expensive, especially you are international student. In addition, while we’re busy to build the friendship with foreigner, we had to frequently get in touch with other Taiwanese people. I knew it seem too weird why I still got along with them. I ought to make friends with different countries people and separate from comfort zone. But it wasn’t completely bad thing and sometimes they may offer some assists. Maybe we could exchange some useful information or assembled everyone to do something such as shipping. Just because we’re now in the foreign country, we have to unity together and support each other. And last but not least, you should choose your traveling fellow wisely. During the year of junior aboard, you had many holidays to travel everywhere. At that time, a good traveling fellow would determine whether the journey was happy or not. “A good travel companion leads you to the heaven and vice versa.” Without a doubt, getting ready everything before you started a trip was essential and necessary. The year of junior aboard was a valuable experiment and we should seize the opportunity. The vocal of Mayday, which is the most popular band in Taiwan has said “Something you doesn’t try right now; you will never practice them until death.” No matter the happy or sad thing, it was one step of growing up and I am willing to accept it.
