觀光B 404860800  莊菀琳   留學學校:國際飯店管理學院(澳洲)-限觀光系

(一)基本資料

My name is Wan-Lin (Linda) Chuang, I’m studying in International College of Hotel Management, which is located in Adelaide Australia. I spent first five months staying in Adelaide, after December, I moved to Sydney for my placement. The hotel which I am doing my placement is Four Seasons Hotel. The subjects that I had to choose to study are Food and Beverage Service Standard, Room Division Service Standard and Applied Business Communication. (73字)

(二)課程學習

My favorite subject is Food and Beverage Service Standard, the reason is that this course has included practical study. Which means we have to work in the International Convention Center for two shifts and work in the school practice restaurant for two weeks. In Convention Center, we have the experience of how the banquet work. In the school practice restaurant, we have experience of the a la carte service. The professor of this subject is Dr. Richard Hunter. He has plenty of experience working in Food and Beverage department for many years. However, he only teach us for 2 months. The rest of the courses taught by other two professors. One is from the school of TAFE, the other is the graduate student from ICHM. To be honest, I was not satisfied with the changing of the teacher. Because in the middle of finding the teacher, we have missed almost six classes. Overall, I still have learned a lot from this course, also, gain enough experience for placement. In the class, we had learned about the dining culture and the service standards in western countries. Therefore, we can equip the knowledge that we need while we are doing our placement. For example, we have wine tasting class, which help us to be more understanding of the verity wine in Australia. Coffee class, in this class we try to be a Barista, making each kind of coffee and learn about the coffee culture in Australia. In addition, we have the cheese tasting class in this class we had taste around ten kinds of cheese. In conclusion, I recommend students who want to come to this school must have the course of Food and Beverage. I promise you will learn a lot from this course. (292字)

International college of hotel management (ICHM) is located in the north of the Adelaide city, where called Regency Park. It take 25 minutes on bus to get to the city. The school is surround by a park. It is very convenience for the student to relax in the park. This school do not have their own building; they share the campus with two school, one is TAFE, the other called Le Cordon Bleu. Also, we shared the dormitory with them too. The name of the dormitory called Regency International House. It is kind of studio, in each room will have 4 people living together, the studio include two shower room and two toilet, living room and dining area. In your own room, it included one desk, one single bed with pillow and blanket, one cabinet, one shelf, one heater and a clotheshorse. Actually, it provide everything that is necessary for you, so you don’t need to worry about any things. The school accommodation includes all bills and provide three meals every day. So we don’t need to worried about prepare the meals by ourselves. Others, there is an entertainment area and a playground, where you can play table tennis, billiards, tennis, basketball and volley ball. The weather in Adelaide is very nice, not as humid as Taiwan. In summer, maxim can up to 40 degree. In winter, the temperature drop a lot after sunset. Near the school there have a shopping center, which called Arndale. It takes 20 minutes’ walk from the school. Usually, the students will do the glossary shopping there. Because there have Big W, Coles and Woolworth. (268字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:ADELAIDE CENTER MARKET】

In the beginning when I started the school, I was struggling with the speaking speed of the local. I could not catch all the word they speak. Also, I could not understand some words in the book. However, after one month I start get used to it. Because I am a Christian, I went to church every Sunday and attended their English service. This improved my listening, reading and speaking. Other is the problem of the assessment. In Australia, when you write an assessment, you will need to reference a sentence or an ideal to support your argument. By the way, you also have to follow the format of referencing. Even now after almost one year of study, I still cannot get used to it. For the culture shock, there are some vocabulary and spelling different from US English that I used to learn in Taiwan. For example, in Australia they called green, yellow and red pepper as capsicum. They do not say you’re welcome, but instead of “no worries”. Others, in Taiwan we used to drive in left-hand side, but in Australia they drive in right-hand side. So when I first time get into the car I felt so weird. Also, in Australia they will walk in the left-hand side of the stair, not the right-hand side which is different as Taiwan. In conclusion, even now there is some rules that I still cannot get used to it. But I keep trying my best to get used to it. (251字)

(五)大三出國建議

To the student who is planning to study aboard, there are some suggestions for you guys. First, before you fly to the country where you are going to stay, please study about their culture first. Get some basic understanding of that country, otherwise, you might feel difficult to blend in with the local people. Second, once you are in the new country, do not hesitate to talk with the native speaker. Please do not stay with the people that also speak the same language with you. Because this will not help you improve your English. Third, when you have any holiday or break do not stay in your dormitory, try to go out and explore the culture, you do not need to spend any money for travel. Just walk around and observe the place you are living. Forth, be brave to try everything and accept any difference of the culture. Last, study hard and play hard. The suggestion of choosing the school and country for study aboard. The most important thing is your interest. If you are not interested in the subject that you are going to study in this school, do not force yourself to choose it. Otherwise, you will not enjoy your study and also it is waste of time and money. (214字)
