For the first semester, one of my favorite course is "Public Speaking". In order for public speaking to become a skill, there are a few areas in which I need to improve to make it a suitable strength. Public speaking is not a weakness for me but I would like to transform it into one of my strengths. During my two minute presentation, I found that in order to do this I need to improve my ability to perform long speeches without hesitation, maintain eye contact, and be energetic in front of an audience showing more overview what topic I am discussing. In class I plan to work on take the steps of improving my verbal communication in front of my peers. While to talk among my peers by keeping good eye contact on them at all time. By doing this it allows me the freedom to walk around and not be completely immobile when giving a speech. Understanding how to organize my work to have a solid overview on what I will be saying when presenting. With this class I hope it takes me to a whole new level on how to talk to people and how to control my emotions when in front of any audience regardless who it it. By allowing myself this sense of understand and awareness will help give me a sense of calmness giving me the ability to stand up and say what I need to say when giving a speech or if I am in a crowd listening to someone speak to offer my views on what is being said. In order for my self to improve my weak areas to accomplish my goals I will have to do the following. First, write a speech and review it. Second, go over the speech many times in a place that I feel safe performing the speech. After this find a mirror, use this to help reduce the fear when speaking in front of people. If this doesn't work for me, I'll ask my friends to assist me. This will be continued to repeat itself until I felt I was ready to give my presentation. Once I have accomplished improving my shortcomings will have the tools needed to be successful in any job related to my career field.(383字)

SUNY Cortland is located in upstate New York. The weather is lovely during summer and spring, but winter is terrible. It start to snow during mid of October till beginning of May. (It depends.) I live at West Campus Apartment, it's part of the school dormitory but it's located outside the campus. Compare to the dorms on campus, it's much more convenient. You can go to Walmart or Price Chopper by walking, there are some Mexican restaurant beside it. Exclude me, there are 3 people in the house. There's also two bathroom, one kitchen and a living room. Each of us has our own single room, and this is theft reason why I chose here. SUNY Cortland offer meal plans, however, I'd rather cook by myself. There's something funny I want to share, in fact, it's actually my first time experiencing snow here, I was so excited when the first time seeing snow. I ran out my apartment and I was filled with happiness. After one month, the weather was crazy, snow flooded into my lower leg, if it comes with rain, the feelings are much more terrible. The only transportation here is either school bus or taxi. I also found that the school bus service operates till midnight almost everyday, it gives students rides to grocery store or bars, and the best part is you don't have to worry how to get back home after parties with friends, the school bus driver always drives students home safely. The is humanize and considerable. (252字)

(四)自我成長

On a university campus, the foreign student is not alone in having come from far away. He or she will likely encounter many others from overseas and it is possible to make friends from all around the world. I discovered that cultural differences are apparent from one group of people to another. We all know it can be a frustrating and sometimes painful experience going to study in a foreign country, with its different language and culture. I felt it's hard to have a long term interaction with foreigners, every time having a conversation, it's kind of awkward and hard to maintain the topic we were discussing. On the other hand, the cleaning standards are different in someways. I have cleaning issues with my roommates, they doesn't clean their dishes after eating and always leave it in the sink over couple days. Not saying every Americans have a problem with this, but from mostly I heard, they do have a problem with this. However, to keep an open mind and do not automatically perceive anything that is different to be "wrong" or "negative". While overseas study has its drawbacks, the difficulties are far outweighed by the advantages. Indeed, people who go abroad for study open themselves up to experiences that those who stay at home will never have. (218字)

(五)大三出國建議

Going to study in a new country can be a stressful experience, from learning the culture norms to new foods. Culture shock is common with international students. Culture shock can include, meeting new people, language barriers, social behaviors, and a sense of community. While it may be difficult for some international students to understand, it is completely acceptable to ask for help when you are having problems. Also, try to meet as many people as you can! This may seem difficult, but really, a university is the perfect venue for meeting people with whom you share common interests. The more you speak English with your new friends, the easier it will become to understand their speech and to generate more of your own. If you take time to communicate with your new friends exactly what your language limitations are, many of them will work to accommodate your needs. I've never deeply experienced international cultures until going to the United States as an exchange student. It’s easy to quickly fall into homesickness, especially if you find yourself feeling isolated. You may start missing your family, your friends, the customs of your home country, and even the food you are used to eating.You may find that it makes you feel better to tell your new friends about your life at home, to sometimes speak your native tongue with friends from your country, to teach foreign words to native English speakers, and even to expose your new friends to the foods you are accustomed to eating.(255字)
