觀光A 404860651  翁立珊   留學學校:賓州印第安那大學

(一)基本資料

I studied in Indiana University of Pennsylvania. It is located in Indiana City, Pennsylvania. In first semester, I took four classes. They are Global History, World of Religion, Fundamental of Drawing, and Restaurant Equipment and Design. The second semester, I also choose four courses, Basic Journalism Skills, Korean, Microeconomics, and Psychology. (51字)

(二)課程學習

【照片說明:study in the class 】

I don’t have favorite class in IUP because what I chose was what I interested in. Therefore, I would like to introduce some courses that I think it really helped me and also had good experiences. I liked the Psychology class because I am interested in the human behavior and thoughts. The teacher is nice, but it has a lot of assignments and I have to prepare the exam for sure to get the better score. First, it talked about the human’s brain. It is important to understand the brain’s function and its structure. Second, we have to know the theories as we can since the hypothesis and the theories are the concept that we learn to know the physically and mentally problems people may have. Third, the “learning” lesson is the potential performance that occurs through our experiences. Thus, the information I mentioned before are what I learned in Psychology class. Korean is also the interesting class. If you are interested in Korean culture, like music, dramas, and food, it is a good choice to study Korean. The teacher is very good and it is easy to get an A in the class. Get the attendance, finish the assignments, and answer the questions that teacher asked in the class. Then, you will have a great result in this class. I chose Fundamental of Drawing since I love to draw the picture. The class is interesting. I have to hand out a work on every week, but it is a piece of cake. In this class, we focused on the sketch work. We use pencil and charcoal to finish the work. At first, it is a little difficult to control your hand to draw the picture we want to express, but practice makes perfect. I draw better than last week and at the end, I finished the last work that I was satisfied. When I finished all the drawing, I feel a sense of accomplishment. (328字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:the view in the campus】

Indiana university of Pennsylvania(IUP) is located near the Pittsburgh. There is a car rental in campus, so we can rent the car and drive to Pittsburgh about one and half hours. Pittsburgh had good restaurants like the Taiwanese food, bubble tea, and some Asian restaurants and good attractions to visit as well. It is convenience to buy the clothes online rather than buying in the store. However, we often took the bus to go to Walmart to buy the groceries and there is a mall we can go shopping and see the movies. IUP has a lot of dorm to choose to live or it is okay to live outside of campus. However, we are international student. We all have to live in the dormitory called Wallwork Hall. It is a big dorm, the room is good and the school provide mattress and the Wi-fi. Thus, we don’t need to worry about it. The environment in campus is good as well. It opened a new cafeteria last year, so we have two choices to choose which cafeteria we want to eat. And also, there are Starbucks, burger place, pizza restaurant, salad bar, pasta, and bagel. The meal plan for student is a good choice to buy the food in campus and save the money. During my exchange year, it was weird that it snowed until April. The weather is freezing, chilly, and windy in the winter, so make sure to bring the thick and long version jacket and the boots. (252字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:my friend and I】

At first, everything was fresh; however, when I got along with the foreigners, I had to encourage myself to talk to them positively. The culture shock happened on me when I talked to my roommate. We had totally different thought and what she said sometimes hurt me and what I said sometimes hurt her heart. Therefore, we had to break in the relationship. We stared to talk to each other at night and share how we feel. It was a good progress to know each other and get used to the American culture. For examples, I told her what kind of food we have, what I like, my family and she told me she has siblings and she likes to help people…. And sometimes we hanged out to eat some food. I think it is a good way to know each other. It was hard for me to listen and learn to write the thoughts and ideas on the paper sheets in the beginning of the first semester because I had to adjust the education and acknowledge that I had to catch up with the professor’s syllabus. On the other hand, it is English. And in the first semester, I chose some courses that it was only me with another Americans. Thus, it was a challenge to have teamwork with them. Although we had culture difference, I learned a lot from them and the professors. All I want to say is I did my best on every courses and achieved my goal. (253字)

(五)大三出國建議

During the period I studied in IUP, I would like to tell you it is always a good try to talk to foreigner and don’t be afraid to talk to them. If you don’t speak English, you won’t learn too much about American culture or the language. It is a big challenge to cross the gap and stereotype to talk to them. Since we think they were indifferent or don’t want to talk to the Asian, but I want to clarify that most of them were really friendly and they would like to hear your speaking when you talk to them. The advantage of the west culture was that they always had greetings even though they didn’t know you, but they would ask “How are you?” or said “ Hey.” Although they didn’t even know who you are, the greetings made you feel concerned. It is warm for me. During the exchange year, you will have a lot of chance to travel around and may have troubles about it. When you encountered the experience, don’t be panic. Everything will be alright. The thing you have to do is to be positive and do your best to deal with the problem. If you don’t know how to fix it, tell someone they can help you or talk to your friends. It is always a good thing to ask for someone. As long as you ask people politely, they will help you as they can. Moreover, if you have difficulties, you can find another way that you are interested in and focus on it. It will make you feel better. In conclusion, be yourself and be positive to face the problem. Everything will be fixed. (290字)
