My favorite course this year is Exploring Social Issues through Art taught by Avila, Claire. She encouraged us to express our own opinions to every art work that she showed us. Even though some of art works are abstract, she assigned us into group and discuss with peers that we shared our different ideas. It was very interesting that every peer has different opinion and I found that classmates from different countries have really different opinion, because of the culture difference. We not only discuss the art work, we also create our own version. Even though most of students can’t draw very well, she encourages us use different way to express our ideas. It was very interesting that I heard a lot of different issues from different countries. I’m surprise that every classmate is creative. When we share our art work to each other, I didn’t know that me and my classmate can draw and share the interesting issue in their country. I recommend Claire’s course because she is very friendly to answer our questions and she has great passion for teaching this course. She took us to museum and visit gallery in campus out of class. We can feel her passion for teaching this course, I highly recommend who has interest in art field for choosing her class. You will learn a lot and have fun in this class. She also chose some popular issue in America, it makes exchange students have opportunity to know American culture better. I had a great time in her class and find many interesting things through art work. I notice that the people who have no interest in this course also can do a great job. Because we were doing group project, people won’t give up when they couldn’t understand. And we always feel free to ask Claire questions. It is not an easy course, but I always had fun in the class.

Sacramento is not a safe city, especially during the night. I heard many accidents happened surround me, such as robber. But we can keep ourselves safety by not going out alone or not going to dangerous place. The weather is really nice, the sun goes down around 8pm during summer, and it was not too cold during winter. The transportation is good but not too convenient, because you have to wait at least 30 minutes to catch the next bus. You can take light rail to outlet and downtown or take bus to some restaurants and mall. If you have a car, you can go many places to have fun. There are many good restaurants and places to go. I live in an apartment that most of Sacramento state students live here. I took shuttle bus from my apartment to school, it takes me only 10 minutes to school or you can walk to school around 30 minutes. Many students choose to live in campus, it is really expensive, but convenient. However, I recommend my apartment, the facilities in our apartment are really nice. We have gym, pool, barbecue place in our apartment. You can have a lot of fun here. For my school, it is a good place for learning because I didn’t see too many people who speak the same language with me, so we can practice English most of time. You have many choices to select a club that you like or go to gym, there are many different courses that you should try, such as Zumba class and climbing. I love my choice to study in Sacramento State, even though I met some problems here. But I still learn a lot and have so much fun here. (289字)

【照片說明:In exchange language, I met many native speaker that help me a lot on my essay.】

American education is really different from Taiwan’s. In the beginning, my teacher asked us to write an essay, but my essay is the worst one in the class. I can’t write more than one page, in Taiwan, we only write two paragraphs and 250 words in the exam. I thought I did a good job after I submit my essay, but I got very low grade on my essay. However, I don’t know how to add more ideas and write an organized essay. I was very frustrated in the beginning, but I never give up because I know that it is important to write a thoughtful essay in America. Therefore, I practiced serval times and wrote many drafts for an assignment, also asked my teacher and classmates for helping me. I feel I have a great improvement on my writing skill, now. I was scared of writing an essay before, but now I like to write essay. Because I can feel my improvement every single time, and I would like to let people see my thought and discuss with me. Teachers and your peer are the best way to let you improve. Also, in the school, there are many places to let you improve your English skills. You should grab the chance to ask them for help. For example, there are some study group that you can join and language center to read your essay before you turn in your assignment. I believe that every university has many resources that you can use. Therefore, you should find them actively to help you learning. (265字)

(五)大三出國建議

At the first, I was scared to talk with native speaker, because I felt they are kind but fake. They always greet to you, but they are not really want to talk to you. For example, they always ask you “how are you?” but they are not really listen to you. I felt hurt in the beginning, so I didn’t want to talk too much with them. However, I have three American roommates, they let me feel better when I get alone with them. Sometimes, they only said hi to me, but I would like to talk more with them. Therefore, I started asking them some questions or sharing things with them. So, I found that American are not open-mind as I thought before, most American I met are shy to talk with others. I think it is because we have different cultural background. But we should try to talk with our roommates and classmates for sure. They are the best opportunity to help me learning English, and they are your supports in America, too. If you met difficulty when you are learning or in your life. The best suggestion is that you have to find a person you can have good communication with and explore your American life with, no matter native speaker or people from different countries. Because you might not brave when you are alone, but you can find a partner with you. Don’t miss every good chance to meet new people or learn English. And always keep positive mind to face new things, don’t be scared!(263字)
