(二)課程學習

During this one year of college life here in Cal State Long Beach. The most favorite course to me is Fitness for Living. There is a major part of the reason why I like this course is the professor. I took Fitness for Living in the first semester that I was studying here. Actually, this is not the class that I was going to take at the first time on my list. But the policy of choosing classes is awful, especially for the international students and exchange students. We have to attend every class that we want to take and ask for signing on the sheet. And I did not take the class that I wanted to take successfully. For some reasons. I chose Fitness for Living eventually. The reasons why I like this courses are that, First, It is not a course that only PE class. Every Tuesdays we had different kinds of sports activities. And every Thursdays we had weight training class. There are lecture classes come after the sports and weight training activities. Lectures are about sports introductions, injuries in sports and how to prevent, introductions of nutrition, and biology, etc. This is not only a fun class, and the professor also help me a lot of getting more familiar with this school and college life. Those are the reasons why I like this course the most. I would highly recommend the following courses, Intro to Acting, Fitness for Living. If you are interested in learning languages I would recommend Fundamentals of Spanish. But the language class is not an easy A class or something easy to learn. It must be put a lot efforts on this class so that you will get a great result. Acting class is an easy and fun class, all you need to do is attend and follow the class. There are a lot of activities during the class either group or individual. Fitness class is not a really easy class but the professor is too good to make the class interesting and make everybody love the class. (346字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:Campus】

On the first day of orientation at California State University Long Beach, I got lost because the campus is way too big. The campus is divided into two parts which are upper campus and lower campus. in the first semester, I was always in the area of upper campus. So it was not a problem of moving from class to class from building to building. It is an important concern about the classes we take and the locations they are at. There are a lot of stores and restaurants on the campus we have variable choices that what are we going to eat and go. The bookstore is surprisingly big in the campus there are book department, electronic department, clothes department, and they also sell guitars there. The weather here is so nice that I would love to live here forever. In summer it is hot but it is dry and winds are cool. It is totally different from the summer in Taiwan, I barely sweat here in summer. But at night, the weather is cooler than daytime, sometimes I have to wear a jacket if I am outside. Winter is not that cold as my imagination, I think the winter in Taiwan is colder than here. But this kind of weather makes me feel comfortable at any time. When it comes to the spend, foods are always expensive if you eat outside at the restaurant. It could be 2 to 3 times more expensive than Taiwan. But others are cheaper here compare to the goods in Taiwan.(256字)

(四)自我成長

This is my first time here in the U.S I could not get used to everything here in the first few months. Like high spend on foods and everything has to plus tax. And there is a most different thing compared to Taiwan, that is the habit of them using the money. I barely use cash to purchase anything. I always use cards instead of cash for everything I need. However, this is a totally different habit and it made me "accidentally" spend too much in the first few months. And there is a big difference between the clerks here and those in Taiwan. That is they always greet you and sometimes have a short conversation. But at first, I was really not getting used to this and I felt pressure every time I walked into a store because they spoke so fast and sometimes I can not understand totally. When I was ordering meals I did not know all the dressing and I took some time to learn those names of dressing and sauces and some foods we eat a lot but I don't really know their names. But everything can be solved as long as you can make yourself talk. Luckily, the house that I stayed they all speak English. It makes me have more chances to speak English and deal with everything in English. So I learned a lot of vocabularies that I never known before. It helps me a lot in improving my English skill.

(五)大三出國建議

For the students who are going to study abroad at California State University Long Beach. Please cherish this one year wherever you are going to stay and study. It will be a totally different living experience from Taiwan and Tamkang University. Honestly, one year is absolutely not enough to explore all the things here in the US. You will notice that the time flies by the moment you are going to come back to Taiwan. It is like yesterday was the new-coming students' orientation and today I am already in the airport for the flight heading home. The most important thing is safety. Those countries are not as safe as Taiwan. Especially homeless people are the serious issue here in the US. There are groups or individual homeless people show up at night on the street or by the store. A lot of them do drugs and drink alcohol. They make some areas become unsafe so please be aware of those kinds of areas. If it is possible, go out with friends instead of going out yourself at night. Second is money management, from my experience I spend a lot in first few months. We pay with cards instead of cash, sometimes there is no awareness that you already spend too much on stuff. And then you are going to get calls from home for sure. Note everything you spent and contribute the money well for each month, or else you are going to be like me spending a lot on unnecessary things. So this is the thing must be learned within this one year living in different country. I think live in a homestay or live somewhere yourself would be better than living in a house with all Tamkang students. You get more opportunities to practice English communications or deal with the problems in everyday lives. And the most important is there are more chances to experience the local living style here in the US. Although it will be a hustle when the first few months here, but it is going to be overcome after all.(347字)
