(二)課程學習

照片說明:Final presentation

【照片說明:Final presentation】

My favourite course in my junior year is Religions of China. It sounds easy for Taiwanese students. No way! To finish the final essay, everyone needed to study eight paper-books. The significance which is necessary to be mentioned of this course is it was a small group so that we had sharing circle every week. It is such a better way for students to learn new knowledge. Each student has different perspectives on the same topic. Instead of the professor kept talking all the way, preview and propose own opinions made me get more. My topic of the final essay is Chinese Buddhism in nowadays. Today, the world is secularization and privatism. People only come up with religions when they need to attain self-salvation and spiritual comfort. That’s why religions are regarded as superstition. People may say religions cannot solve problems. Why don’t we build a hospital but a temple? However, Buddhism is not only a religion, but a life philosophy reveals in doctrinal, institutional, and social terms. Chinese Buddhism in nowadays has been not conventional but exerts a subtle influence on many aspects which refers to social values and social customs. Because folk religions play such an important role in Taiwanese society, I could link tourist resource management what I had learned before in the procedure of my works. Therefore, the achievement what I did in this course was really meaningful for me. Fortunately, I got A- in the final. One thing interesting is the professor is an atheist Canadian. Her advice always made me more creative and thoughtful. I'm sincerely thankful. She is sweet as a senior for me.(273字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:Campus】

Brandon is the second big city in Manitoba. Compared with Vancouver and Toronto, the climate is pretty dry and cold here. Summer finished at the end of September, and it begins snowing since November. As always, the scene presents a white world which covers thick snow. Even though winter at Brandon lasts for a long time, it has different beautiful sights in four seasons. The campus is located at the main street where most restaurants and shops are all along the 18th street. Brandon is a wheat city, a countryside. It is kind of annoying but good enough. Students can surely save money when staying here because there are not many choices of entertainment. For food and beverage, staying in the dormitory goes with the cafeteria. Females dormitory has perfectly big rooms with washstand inside. There is a kitchen at basement but always being mess up. The cafeteria called Harvest Hall is not completely awful, but people entirely will be sick of them one day. For daily commodities, there is Walmart, Real Canadian Superstore, and a shopping mall. People can grab the cheapest snacks at Dollarama. Shoppers Drug Mart is the only one store opens until the midnight. For winter clothes, water-proof coats, gloves, and boots are necessary. Thrift shops are perfect ideas to get them. The stuff there is second-hand, but those are still useful and don't cost you too much. For services of bank and wireless, RBC and Rogers are excellent choices. For transportation, taking the local bus costs $1.5 CA dollars one ride, but it is free if you take the student card. By the way, you won't want to go outside in winter time, haha.(278字)

(四)自我成長

What benefit can we get from the experience of studying abroad? Is it an identification of a more excellent education? Is it an exact opportunity to get the professional language ability? Is it a life of having fun? For me, those are not important for me. The first time speaking English in a foreign country, first time living without family and friends, first time entirely relying on myself to adapt everything, many things happened the first time. What I got in this year is a mature attitude to face each challenge. The first thing Taiwanese students may not accept is food. Western food culture has such a vast difference with Taiwanese style. Especially, people would miss their mom's cooking badly. Second, the foreign price level is much higher than the domestic. Taiwanese students may be under pressure in financial straits. Thus, making the budget plan is pretty significant. Third, active educational environment makes Taiwanese students need to take time to adapt it. Each student needs to work hard as the best he or she can, even though sometimes the result is just a reasonable grade. However, studying abroad is a precious opportunity, so please quit your laziness to hold all learning resources. Final, you may meet someone is rude or racist. Anyway, remember to respect others and respect yourself. Taking a mature and rational attitude to face those disappointments is the best resolution. Make a decision which makes you happy but also others! In the year of studying abroad, I sincerely appreciate my family and friends the most. It is such happiness that their concerns and loves never stop. Each time I felt so sick and lonely, they always can make me find back myself. It was those, love and happiness. I think I am stronger now. I did something I just wanted but never took action, such as proposing opinions in the class, free hug with strangers, being myself. For me, those substantial achievements are not really important, but I truly got a brave heart.(336字)

(五)大三出國建議

In the year of studying abroad, someone will have much fun, but some will meet any troubles. You may be the one who is bad luck. However, please never give up. Each struggle gives a new lesson to you; it makes people become a better person. Everything has its meaning. People always can learn from their worst mistake. You are the who decide everything. The fortunate is hold in your hand. If you are surrounded by darkness, never forget someone is waiting for you on the hometown island. Parents are sure to have full of worries and expectation on you. So, please, take care yourself and never let them down. What I mentioned above looks as idioms, being abstract and not helpful, but those sincerely are my reflection in the year of studying abroad. The last thing, remember to be yourself. If it is easy, the words won't frequently show up. You are not alone. You are the best. You only live once!(163字)
