(二)課程學習

照片說明:In the Geography classroom

【照片說明:In the Geography classroom】

My best course was Geography class. The time of this course on every Monday and Wednesday 5:05~6:20 P.M. and the professor named Nixon Shabalom Cleophat. The professor is very nice, he is the of professor that really wants students to learn something in his class and pass the course. Even though you get the poor grade on the exam and quiz, just go to his office to find him, he will have the way to let you pass. In the class, there are about 60 students in it. The class is very big. The first time when I went in, I felt it’s hard to control myself from playing cellphone because the teacher will not notice it. Before the class began, the professor gives everyone an article to read, and told what he would teach in today’s class, after that, he introduced the religious activities and suggested students join it. Finally, he started to teach the class. He used powerpoint to teach, but the words there is too hard for me, so I didn’t know what did he teach at that time. In Taiwan, although there is some professor using powerpoint to teach students, they are just teaching and teaching. In America, professor prefer to let students discuss by themselves, and there is no the definitely correct answer, students tell their opinion, and discuss, and find the conclusion. It’s a new kind of teaching style for me. After taking this course, I think this teaching style is better than the one in Taiwan, it's still a good experience for me to learn something different.

(三)生活環境

照片說明:snow in the campus

【照片說明:snow in the campus】

The school campus is vast and it takes several tens of minutes to walk from head to the end. There are swimming pools, fountains, indoor and outdoor basketball courts, and a variety of large venues, enough for students to carry out various activities. The school dormitory is a single room with one to four people. It is very spacious and comfortable. There are many snack bars and shopping malls around the campus. It is very convenient. The climate is unusually cold, but it is advisable to buy warm clothing at the Thanksgiving holidays. Because they will have a big sale. When it's snowing, you won't want to go out. So prepare instant noodles and cookies to spend the winter in the room. Although they can drink raw water, it is recommended to buy a water heater and boil your own water to drink. In the end, the north of the school has a nice Chinese food called china king. If you miss Taiwanese taste, you can try it, cheap and tasty.(171字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:Our dormitory

【照片說明:Our dormitory 】

When I just arrived in my dormitory, the staff told me that my three roommates are all Americans. I was shocked because I considered school will match a Taiwanese student up with me. I followed the staff to my room. After a few minutes, I could see the room door. And then I told the staff I can get in by myself, so he had left soon. But I actually hesitated in front of my door for a long time. I really couldn’t face my American roommates. I constantly reviewed the knowledge I had learned from the textbook. ”Hi, how are you”, “I’m fine, thank you and you?” I kept reviewing this conversation in my brain. I told myself “you will be okay!” And then I knocked the door. “Hey, you what’s up?” A tall man with a brown curled hair said. ”oh……what?” I said. Wait! I haven’t learned this sentence before! How to answer this question? “Hey, you what’s up?” again from the man. ”OK!”I hurried answered the question without thinking enough. And then I rushed into my own room and closed the door as soon as I possible. “What was I did?'' I asked myself. It’s so embarrassing! He must think I am a strange guy. This experience gave me a really deep impression on memory I have of learning English. From then on, I began to learn the real English that the American uses in their daily life. Not only learn from the teacher but also learn from my American friends. Now, I can speak with foreigners without nervous and made a lot of friend through English. They really taught me a lot. Came to America is the turning point in my life. Finally, the most important thing I learned is English is not just a subject but also a way to make friends from different country.(319字)

(五)大三出國建議

Take advantage of ALI resources such as photocopying, tutor, and writing center. The staffs in the ALI are very nice to the foreigner. If we have any question, not only about studying but also everything in the daily life, they are very welcome you to ask them. American food is not delicious. It is too oily and too salty. Some foods that are eaten raw may be uncomfortable for your stomach, so remember to take stomach medicine. After school, you will be asked to fill out the meal plan, although it is very cheap, do not buy too much, 10 meals plus flex is just good I think. You can also use the meal plan to exchange something like fruit and coffee. There are two public schools in the school, one is a campus bus that only runs around campus, and the other is a city bus that will surround Indiana. Both are free as long as you hold a student ID card. It is very convenient to take a city bus to the places like WalMart, TJmax, and Indiana Mall where you can buy food and clothes. On campus, the free gym and swimming pool are very advanced to use. In November, when the weather turns cold, you need to buy coats and snow boots. It is recommended that you buy them at Thanksgiving specials and they will be very cheap. In addition, the International Student Center also provides conversation partners and host families that allow foreign students to experience more American culture and local life while they are in the school. I hope you to participate more. (268字)
