觀光A 404860792  劉吉祥   留學學校:布蘭登大學(加拿大)

(二)課程學習

My favorite class in Brandon is Political science. In this course, students are mainly learning basic political theory and political issues. The professor will also train students' speculative skills in class and teach students how to write simple essay in this field. This course helps students ...................................................................................................................... I think my favorite course would be “Religion of China”. It may sound a bit boring but I like the professor much. The professor is an a-bit-old lady with lots of knowledge. She is very kind and enthusiastic. The time schedule for this class is from 13:10 to 16:10 every Thursday. We got some interesting activity during class, including playing Ma-Jiang, doing divination, experiencing acupuncture, Tai-Ji, and meditation. But the course is a bit heavy that we got readings every week, a research essay with the big proportion of the final score and also with the midterm and final examination. The reason that I chose this course was first that the credits could transfer back to TKU. But then I realized that I have learned more about the Chinese culture and religion. I do not know why I was with not so much knowledge on those things, maybe got all religious and cultural things all messed up. Some customs are existed due to adopting of religion but its prevalence made me think it is part of the Chinese culture. And Chinese history also included in this course. Moreover, I would say the academic strategy for students that my professor adopted is great. The weekly readings are kind of forced that we need to give feedback for the mark of usual in the following week; which each comment accounted for 2 percent of the final score. This made me read them to earn the points. We were having course in a small class that the total students of this course are just about 10, so it makes this exchanging comments more possible and it actually worked for everyone. More important is that I really do learned things from this class. And the activity she provided is helpful for the course and also made this 3-hours-long class more interesting. (暫訂)(349字)

(三)生活環境

Brandon is the second major city of Manitoba in Canada. It is a small city with very few stores and restaurants. But it is residential and enough for people to live. There’re not much for entertainment but still are some like bowling place and bars. The weather here is really cold that it hits negative from late October to April. The snow hasn’t all melted before I left which is in the mid-April. But I think we all get used to it after few weeks there. I lived on the campus in the hall called McMaster. It is a mixed gender dorm with private sanitary, which is why I chose this dormitory. The residence fee is the combination of the dorm and meal plan. It can not be divided. So, basically, residents do not cook for themselves. And it is also prohibited in a dorm. But the food at Harvest Hall (the cafeteria in school) is not with many options, so people get tired of the food there easily. I am the one who can not bear the bad food, so most of the time I order for delivery but need to pay more unnecessary fees. The whole campus is not so big that people could get to know well very soon. The library is quiet and comfortable that even me went there much. Superstores, cinema, and the tea shop would be the places that I went the most. Since the bubble tea is the dessert that I can not live without, I went there almost every day. But it is much more expensive than in Taiwan that a bubble tea here I could buy 5 more cups in Taiwan. (暫訂)(281字)

(四)自我成長

When I first arrived in Canada, I was very nervous because my English is not very good. I still remembered my baggage was delayed in the airport, so I went to ask the baggage service. This is my first time to communicate with foreigner, and he spoke English very quickly, so I just do my best. Finally, I dealt with this matter. It's a unforgettable experience. After that, because my TOEFL score didn't reach the regular class, I need to study English academic program, and I am level 3. After this program, my English is getting better, and I also slowly adapt to Canadian life. My friend, Herbert, and I often go to play pool and table tennis, we meet some foreign friends, Robert, Kenneth, and Daniel. They help us many things, and they also help us to practice our oral communication. They are very nice and friendly. I also meet some China guys and Korean guys, they are also very nice. China guys will avoid talking about political issues, so we still can be friends. Actually, I didn't encounter difficulties in life because I have friends, if I have questions, I can ask them. In addition, I think experience is very important, for example, I didn’t know how to do this at first time, however, at second time I will know how to do this. Therefore, don’t be afraid to try anything, just do it, and you will know how to do better. (暫訂)(245字)

(五)大三出國建議

For those who want to study Brandon University, you should think carefully. There are two weaknesses. First, it is very very cold. When you arrived Canada, it only have almost two months normal temperature, and then the temperature will go down quickly, the coldest temperature will be minus forty-five degrees, so keeping warm is very important. Second, Brandon is very boring. You can think it just like Lanyang campus, and Brandon is Jiaoxi. Although you can buy anything, you don't have anywhere can go to play. And you need to drive for two hours to the biggest city. So, if you want the funny life, you should go to America or other country. However, there are two strengths you can considerate to study Brandon University. One is the expense. The tuition in Canada is lower than other country. So, if you want to save your parents money, you should come to study here. The other one is security. The security of Canada is very better. Generally, do not go out at night, the personal safety will be alright. In addition, there are no racial discrimination in Canada. Therefore, if you think clearly, you could come to study Brandon University. (暫訂)(199字)
