【照片說明:How to search the article correctly】

During this year, I’ve taken many courses which are talking about tourism management, they include Tourism and heritage management, Impacts of festivals and events, Fundamentals of tourism, leisure and hospitality, Global tourism, Study skills for the hospitality sector, and Current issues in tourism and hospitality. Among all of them, Study skills for the hospitality sector is my favorite course, it is talking about the ability to discuss appropriate strategies and techniques for a range of learning and presentation skills including: information gathering, referencing, critical reading, note-taking, essay writing, verbal presentations, exam preparation and group work, also, we can gain the knowledge of identifying, locating and discussing a range of information and ideas relating to tourism, hospitality and events information, and the abstraction of tourism from this lecture. Although it sounds a little bit boring, module leader Andrew taught us in his own way to make the lecture become more interesting. Andrew is just like our friend more than a teacher, you won’t feel you are having a lecture in class, because Andrew uses an interactive way to communicate with us, let us feel like we are just having a conversation, but while chatting with teacher, we can still learn a great deal of knowledge. Normally, Andrew divides us into groups, the aim is to let us know more about each other, learn how to communicate with foreigners and discuss the issues with each other. Most of all, Andrew cares more about international students, he often comes to ask us whether we have any questions or not, is his speaking speed too fast, etcetera. In this lecture, we don’t feel any pressure and become more active than before. After this lecture, I have learned a lot of new knowledge in different way, which I have never known before, but the best thing is that I have met the great teacher than ever! (314字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:City of Sunderland】

Although Sunderland is not a famous city in the UK, it has everything you need here, which includes metro, bus, train, and shopping center, you can go anywhere you want and buy daily essentials easily, this is one of the reasons why I live in city center, it just costs 5-minute walk to get to anywhere. There are two Chinese supermarket in city center, which are Asian people’s paradise, you can find the taste of hometown here, also, there are lots of different kinds of restaurants in Sunderland, such as Thai, Indian, Roman, Chinese food, etcetera, it is very international here, but if we pursue more choices, we will take metro to Newcastle, which is a big city near Sunderland. Studying in University of Sunderland is full of happiness, you will not be worried about how to get to the campus, because the university provide free buses to carry us to campus, the route surrounds the entire city, and there are two libraries in Sunderland, both of them are 24 hours. Due to the fact that Sunderland is at North latitude, the weather is mostly cold here, but in summer, the duration of sunshine is very long, the sky is still bright at 9 am. Sunderland is really close to the sea, which is near the metro station, you can relax on the beach and enjoy the sunshine, therefore, here also comes many naughty birds which full of whole Sunderland. Overall, I like Sunderland this city and I love the sunshine with beautiful blue sky here. (255字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:Road in Sunderland】

When it comes to some new challenges, I have never opened a bank account and rent a house before studying abroad, this is my first time to do it all by myself. I still remember one thing which impressed me a lot was that I talked to a customer service staff on the phone to activate Apple Pay, sometimes it is hard to understand British accent, especially when you meet someone who speaks very quickly, and it’s even harder to understand what they say when talking on the phone, but I finally made it. Also, talking to foreigners makes me feel nervous, however, I took a course that needs a group presentation, teacher even arranged the group members for us, which means we can’t stay with our friends, each group member comes from different countries, so the only language that we can communicate with each other is English. At first, I was too shy to talk to them, they always said I was very quiet and wanted me to relax and take it easy, I found that people are all very kind here, I was scared just because I thought too much, they were very patient to listen what I tried to convey, so just say what you want to say, and do not be nervous or hesitate. There is also one thing that I think I’m not quite adapted, which is crossing the street, there are not many traffic lights at the intersection, so I always feel nervous when crossing the street, because you need to be careful of the cars from both sides, it’s really hard and it’s different from Taiwan. However, these problems do not have many impacts on studying abroad, because you will solve them at the end, then you will find how valuable this year is. (306字)

(五)大三出國建議

People always think England is very expensive, comparing with other European countries, the price in England is really good, you can find many things you want here in a cheap price in different kinds of stores, such as Poundland, everything is just for one pound there, you can compare with many stores and save a lot of money. It’s a really great opportunity to study abroad for one year in our lives, you will gain a great deal of knowledges and broaden your horizon during this year. It is worth mentioning that making some local friends here is very good, you can know more about the culture in their countries, and do some activities which you have never done before, it will be very fresh to you and interesting. Also, traveling to other countries in winter and spring vacation is a good idea, but don’t forget to plan it earlier, it will be much cheaper, also, travelling in Europe must be very careful, there are many pickpockets here, and many people who play tricks to charge for money, don’t be tricked! You may travel in England by train while studying abroad, it is a good way to have a 16-25 railcard, just buy it online, then you can get 1/3 off rail fares to travel across Britain, this is much cheaper than adult ticket. You can master your own life during this year, just enjoy it and do whatever you want, do not waste this wonderful opportunity, and these will be part of the best memories in your life. (261字)
