觀光B 404860909  陳映慈   留學學校:國際飯店管理學院(澳洲)-限觀光系

(一)基本資料

The university I choose to study abroad is International College of Hotel Management which is located in South Australia, Adelaide. Adelaide is really a wonderful place. It is not too busy and has a lot of natural attractions such as beautiful beach and mountains which gives me relaxing feelings. ICHM is suitable for the students who is interested in hospitality industry due to all the courses are related to hotel industry. The courses I have selected are Food and Beverage Service Standards, Delivering Guest Services Practicum, Rooms Division Service Standards and Applied Business Communication. From my perspectives, all of these courses are helpful for me because I really learned numerous knowledge about hospitality industry. Besides, these courses also include practical part. For example, the college provide us the opportunity to be the server or room attendant in the hotel. Therefore, we have the personal experience about how to interact with customers and clean up the guestrooms. (156字)

In my opinion, food and beverage service standard is really an interesting and helpful course. I learned a large amount of knowledge which is not only on the textbook but also practical part from this course. The course is related to how to serve food and beverage to the guests so we have further understanding about coffee, cheese, wine and cutlery which is common used in hospitality industry. From the course, the professor taught us how to identify several different kind of wine and cheese. We also taste different type of cheese and wine in the class so we can clearly remember all of them. Besides, the college’s facility is really complete so we have the chance to make the wine and coffee by ourselves. The college would provide enough quantity of ingredient to let us practice. Thus, we can practice many times until making the successful one. Furthermore, the student who participated in this course need to go to Adelaide Convention Center to be the server. Before we came to there, our professor would teach students how to carry the plates and set up the table and things need to notice when working in the banquet. Therefore, students won’t be too nervous when we go to the convention center. Due to this practical part, we can experience how to work as a server in the banquet. We need to set up the table, polish the cutlery, sever food to guests and take order. Everyone treat us as the real servers. It is really a helpful experience for me because I really learn how to interact with guests, communicate with managers and cooperate with colleagues. Besides, the professor in this course is friendly and nice. If you have any questions or problem, he would help you to figure out it patiently. In conclusion, I really learn a lot of knowledge and gain the different experience from this course.(320字)

Our campus is really small, just has two buildings and one basketball court. Although it is not large, the campus has complete facilities for students to use such as coffee classroom and practice restaurant. Besides, I live in the dormitory which is just next to the campus. I think it is really convenient to live here because everything is provided here. The dormitory provide three meals a day, unlimited internet, washing machine, a specious private room and there will has housekeeper help you to clean up the room every week. The surroundings here is quiet, there is not too much store or restaurant here. But, it is convenience to go to city, I always takes bus to the city and it just took me about twenty minutes. The weather here is often sunny so if we do not have class, we will go to beach or mountain to have fun. There are so many beautiful beaches in Adelaide. Besides, the college will take place some activities which is available for all the students in ICHM. For example, when the semester just started, we had course commencement ceremony which is a magnificent activity for everyone. All the professors and students will dress up for this ceremony and it is also a good occasion to make new friends. Apart from this, the most memorable activity for me was pajamas party. Everyone put on their pajamas come to the party, dance and drink wines together. It was quite interesting and everyone had a lot of fun. I really enjoyed the life in Adelaide and created a lot of wonderful memories.(267字)

【照片說明:the guestroom which is cleaned by myself in my placement 】

After we finished the semester in the first six months, every student need to choose a hotel to do placement. For me, the most difficult part is during my placement period. It was my first time to have official work and it was more difficult to work in the different country. Because of language barriers, sometimes I could not understand what the supervisor and colleagues were talking about. Different country’s people has different accent and speed when they talked. Therefore, I would try my best to get understanding about what they talked, so I would ask them speak slowly or say it again. Besides, in the beginning of the placement, I really felt stressful every day. I was unfamiliar with the new environment and the cleaning standard of the hotel. Although the supervisor trained us how to clean the room for about ten days, there are some details I still did not know. So, sometimes, when I finished cleaning one room, my supervisor would call me back to clean it again. Therefore, it was hard for me to finish cleaning all the rooms in time. However, practice can make perfect, after I keep doing these things every day and ask my supervisor and colleagues some techniques, I improve my speed and quality of cleaning the guestroom. Before I worked as a room attendant, I did not know this job was so hard. Everything was much difficult than I thought. However, I really try my best to solve the problem and keep practicing to improve the housekeeping techniques.(258字)

For example, I have been to Australia’s zoo to see kangaroo and koala, they are really cute. I can also touch them and feed them, it is so close to interact with them. Besides, I have also been to Cairns to go skydiving. In the beginning, I was too afraid to try it. However, after trying it, I felt so excited because the view was really beautiful from height.
