(五)大三出國建議

Hopefully before you have left you would have studied up and learnt as much about your adopted country before you have left so this will put you in good stead for when you are there as you will have a better knowledge of customs and traditions. You should also take care to follow some very simple rules so that you do not bring unwanted trouble to you: Stay Alert and Trust your Instincts Its always good to be alert and aware of what is going on around you. If you are in a busy market or square, just make sure you are aware of the people and what is going on around you and if you feel uneasy or are not sure about something get out and away from the place. At the end of the day you should trust your instincts and if you are not happy about something move away and to an area that you feel more comfortable. Keep Valuables Close to you Just like when you are home, do not flash your wallet with lots of money in it or your brand new mobile phone around. This will only draw attention to yourself and make you are target for pickpockets Keep a Low Profile As you are a foreigner in the country you are traveling to try to keep a low profile as much as possible. That said, this does not mean you have to hide away but try not to broadcast the fact you are a foreigner. For example try not to talk too loudly in open spaces and try to dress a little more like others from your host country, this will help your integration and will stop unwanted attention being draw to you. Learn Your Surroundings Similar to gathering information about the country you will be visiting, it is also equally important to get as much information about your host town or city. This information will most likely come from your Study Abroad Office but you can also ask past students about this. You want to learn things like what areas you should avoid, how the public transportation system works, etc... Drink Wisely At some point you will want to socialize and this often leads to drinking. The golden rule with drinking is to drink sensibly and among friends who you trust. Alcohol lowers your inhibitions and sense of judgement which can make you very vulnerable to thieves and trouble - so the advice is drink sensibly or not at all! Keep in Contact Probably one of the most important rules is to keep in contact with people and let somebody know where you are going. Nowadays it is relatively cheap to have a mobile phone and this will make it easy for people to contact you should they need to. Also, if you are sharing an apartment with someone let them know if you are going out and where - that way if anything happens someone knows where you went. Tip! Tipping, while not a common practice throughout the rest of the world, is expected in the U.S. Restaurants do not typically add gratuity to a bill, so patrons are expected to tip their server somewhere between 15-20% to reward them for their service. It is considered extremely rude not to do so, so be sure to check your bill and tip your waiter if gratuity hasn’t been added. Keep up with pop culture and sports for good conversation topics College students in the U.S., just like everywhere else, love to talk about entertainment and sports. Use your free time to read magazines and update yourself on entertainment news, watch popular TV programs, and learn the basics of popular American sports like football, baseball, basketball and hockey. Not only will this help you have conversations with native students, but it will provide you with an authentic experience of American culture. Have a large travel budget One of the greatest parts of studying abroad is the amount of traveling you can do in your new country, but in America, travel is expensive. There are no budget airlines like Ryan Air, so be prepared to drop $300 on a flight or look up alternate means of transportation. You can always take a bus or rent a car, but this can also make for a lengthy trip depending on how far your destination is! A flight to New York City will cost you, but this view might just be worth itA flight to New York City will cost you, but this view might just be worth it A flight to New York City will cost you, but this view might just be worth it A flight to New York City will cost you, but this view might just be worth it Befriend American students as well as other international students I’ve been an international student before, so I understand that it’s often difficult to break out of that classification and make friends with the locals. International students are grouped together in living arrangements and classes at many universities, so you should make a conscious effort to befriend some Americans. It may seem intimidating, but it’ll give you a more authentic experience and hopefully provide you with lifelong friends that you can go back and visit someday! Don’t be intimidated This advice goes for pretty much anyone studying abroad: no matter who you are or where you’re from, you’ll be interacting primarily with other college students, and we all have many similar qualities and interests deep down. Take the rest of these tips into consideration and get ready for the experience of a lifetime! (946字)
