There have two course, both of them are my favorite courses. One is Front Office Operations; the other is English Composition and Rhetoric. The reason why I like those two courses because I think both of them I learned a lot from the classes. Let's talk about Front Office Operation first. This is a very basic knowledge of hospitality, it is not just only for academic information, in this class we can learn operation part, and the professor teaches us how to use opera system that is the system which is most of hotel use in the world. This means if you want to work in hotel in the future, you should know how to use it expertly. Even you can't know to use it very professionally. But at least can learn how to use it step by step. In this class, teacher taught us by each different case. Before the operation class start, she gave us one paper of today task. On this paper, you can see each of the situation or guest request. Then, teacher will explain what the situation and how to do in the opera. She will do each step by step in opera, and then we can use our own computer to practice by ourselves. Before this course start, IT department helped us download the opera system. So we can also practice it after class, it very convenient and useful. And for the academic part, there have a small quiz every one or two weeks, it can help us more understand the information for the class, we also can review it again when we prepare for the quiz. For the other course is English Composition and Rhetoric, the main of this course is help us to improve our writing and speaking skills, especially for those student who came from the country which English is not their mother language. In this class, we have asset need to finish for every week, after that teacher will let us present it in front of whole class, it very useful for us to train our speech skills. The most important thing is that teacher will correct our assignment or asset every time, and also return to us. This is very helpful for us to know how to improve our writing skills. Anyway, even I just had four courses in the EAHM, but I feel I have fulfill schedule.(399字)

My campus is nearby one of world famous hotel, Burj Al Arab. In the campus, we have restaurant one is selling normal food, like fast food. And the other one more like official restaurant, especially most of coworkers there are their students. They cook the food; make beverage and serve to guest. It also a good place to let student to practice their skills. For our accommodation, each of students all has their own room, the room including basic furniture, bathroom and kitchen. Normally, student all cook in their room. It can save money and also can practice their cooking skill. For the transportation, in the Dubai there have bus and metro, and if your destination is far away from city, you also can take taxi or Uber to go. It is convenient than other city in UAE. There have a mall just nearby our school, take bus only ten minutes can arrive it. In that mall you can buy whatever you want, there also have one Carrefour inside it. So most of time, we go there to buy some stuffs and food. We found there still have Chinese store in Dubai, it also have App. People can order food for that App, and it will deliver to your place. It is very convenient and cheap. Especially the vegetable is fresh, it also sells pork. Because UAE is a muslin country, they are not allowed to eat pork and drink alcohol. Even they don't sell alcohol in supermarket, only for special shop and restaurant. If you want to buy it, you need to go to apply alcohol license first, or you will be illegal.(274字)

(四)自我成長

Most of people ask me, "Where are you from?", and then the next sentence will be “Are you working here?" I said from Taiwan and study here, they will think "Thailand?" Yes! Most of people they don't know where is Taiwan. They will look your face and say, you are Chinese or Korean? At first time, you will try to explain to them what is the different of Taiwan and China. But after two or three months, I feel tried to explain that, because for them you have "Chinese face" they still don't know how to recognize and separate it. But I think most important thing is not where you from, is what kind person you are. Because in this country 80% of people are not Arabian. People come from different country to work together here. It really like America, every different cultural background people stay together, people are all respect for each other, no matter where you are from. For local people, Arabian, they have special life style. Although we think there a lot of rules of their religions, but actually I think they enjoy their life more than us. Most of them are not workaholic; they will finish their job then go home. So, sometime you need something you need to wait for a while or few days. It is really different between Taiwan and here. Before, I can't understand why need to wait so long time to wait for something. But now I can accept their special cultural style, of course, enjoy life is very important. (258字)

(五)大三出國建議

If you want to experience the special culture you didn't know before, and you also want to do your intern oversea. Of course, this will be one of good option you can consider of it. But you should keep a learning mind and be patience to the entire thing. For me, in this year, I think the most important part is my intern. It really totally different between in school, for intern, it likes a real work. Though, the main of internship are doing observation of work and learning how to be a professional leader in hospitality. So that is very important when you do the interview for your internship, you should ask questions whatever you want to know, because most of them just write and answer the principle answer. But sometime you may not want to accept some rules or offers, but you don’t know before you join them, it will be a big problem. Because sometime the company did not provide accommodation, you need to find by yourself, also the accommodation fee will be an extra cost during intern. And also different company provides different offer which means salary are different too. I think those details are people need to notice before you sign the contract. Because after you sign the contract, you can’t say no anymore. There also have some points of school need to be notice, for the teaching style and the way of writing assets; those things are different between Taiwan. I mean not just for how many words you need to writing for. The thing is there have a typical way to write assets and assignment, it depends on what kind system the school use. It was difficult for me to know how to use it, because I never do this before. But most of our classmates from other country, they already know how to use it, their school taught them about that. So, it is very important to keep a learning mind and patience to accept this new inventory.(338字)

(六)其他

United Arab Emirates is a very special country to discovery. The thing people know this country only for oil and desert, and for city most of them only know Dubai. Actually the truth is UAE is one of rich country in the middle east. And their capital Abu Dhabi, which space not only have desert also have ocean. I spent four months in Dubai for study, the only thing I want to say is if you like modernization and international city, Dubai will be a good option. But if you prefer like a real city which mean it has a long history, not only build it for one or two decades. Abu Dhabi will be your best choice. There a lot of sightseeing spots in UAE, there have seven emirates in UAE. Each of them have different natural environment, it very good to experience those cities, if I have chances. There has one famous event in this country, desert safari, people can sit in the SUV through desert with special driving skills by driver. I went it before one time, it was a great experience, I also ride the camel and eat the BBQ. There have one special experience is going to visit mosque, during that time we know more about their culture.(213字)
