【照片說明:my lecturer and tutor】

I study at language school for half a year from August to February and then start my paper in Waikato University from February to June. In Pathway, I study two level to improve my English. I chose four paper for A semester before I start my university life. The four paper I chose are sustainable tourism and hospitality management, Japanese, international language and culture and introducing the Maori world. In these four paper, my favorite paper is introducing the Maori world. I would never forget the scene when I walk into the lecture room in the first lecture. There were more than eighty people in the lecture room and majority are Maori. I am the only Asian in the room. Anyway, this paper is introducing the Maori world. In first lecture, there were some words that I was so agree with, lecturer said that this paper is a brief introduce the Maori world and it is always hard to understand the culture by introducing. In this paper, lecturer talk about the identity of Maori, the legend, the folk stories, Maori gods, Maori people’ believes, traditional food……etc. I pretty like the way that lecturer taught in lectures. In every lecture, lecturer would speak in te reo Maori to pray before the lecture and also at the end of the lecture. It is a very good experience to learn and know the Maori culture, even though I can not understand te reo Maori. In the last lecture of this semester, we had our lecture at the Marae in university. We can not walk to Marae atae which is a place in front of Marae straight away. We have to wait the owner of the Marae to sing a welcoming song and then we start walking toward the Marae. We also need to respond the owner by singing. But that is too hard to us so our tutor represent us and we stand behind her. This is the only paper that really let you have an experience to experience the culture and also is a paper that I can not learn in Taiwan. I am so appreciate that I chose this paper. (360字)

(三)生活環境

When I first come in New Zealand. I chose to live in homestay. My homestay are Fiji Indian but they live in New Zealand more than ten years. They have two children. One older brother and one younger sister. They are so cute and nice. I usually play games, watch movies or study with them in weekends. In week day, I have to wake up at 6:30 and then finished breakfast before 7:30. Walk around fifteen minutes to bus stop and then arrive at university at around 8:45. It took almost an hour on bus from my homestay to university. After two months, I moved out. I rent a room near university. It only take five minutes’ walk to university. I can save more time to sleep. Waikato University is quiet big. There are lot of car parks to let students and teachers to park their cars. In New Zealand, it is quiet hard to see a building is more than five floors. Most of the buildings are only one floor or two floors, even in university. If we talk about New Zealand, most people would say “nature”. Absolutely. There are lots of trees and lawn. If you walk in university, you can also see some ducks, rabbits and cats. The weather here is very cold in winter. The weather in Taiwan and New Zealand is opposite. New Zealand is colder and cooler than Taiwan especially in winter. If we talk about the food in New Zealand, fish and chips and fast food would represent. I do not like the food in New Zealand. Fries and sweets are kiwis’ favorite.(267字)

(四)自我成長

This is the first time I study abroad. First time leave Asia. First time to flight by myself. First time live in a totally unknown country for one year. I was a little bit scare. But, this is my choice. I think I am good at adaptability. I can used to the lifestyle in New Zealand quickly. Kiwis’ life pace is more relax and slower than Taiwan. But I do not too many culture shock. Only one thing I can not accept until now, some kiwi do not wear shoes while they are walking at street. Not only children but also adults. Even though it is very clean on street, aren’t they feel uncomfortable? I still confused. Whatever, kiwi are already used to it. Public transportation is not too convenient. It may need to wait half an hour if you just miss your bus and there are usually no buses after eight. The first six months, I studied language. The tests in pathway were similar to IELTS. It is totally different to the tests in university. In university, most papers only have one or two test and some written assignments or final essay or report. The first test of international language and culture has fifteen short answer, two short essay and one long essay. Lecturer gave us two hours to write, but I still did not finish it. I have no enough time to write. My friend did not finish it as well. It is not only answer the questions but also need your own opinions. It is really important to have your own opinions and thinking in university. (270字)

(五)大三出國建議

Study aboard is a good experience. I am the only person who chose Waikato University to study. It is adventurous. But if you let me choose again, I will still chose New Zealand to study abroad by myself. It is a good way to know and test how strong you are. You will try everything you are interested in. You will make new friends. Even though sometimes you will feel lonely, it is a power that improve yourself. I was nervous before I leave Taiwan. But, there is no need to be afraid. If you do not understand, ask people around you. Most kiwi are friendly and happy to help you. Do whatever you want and always try new things, do not give up easily. (125字)
