觀光A 404860412  陳思瑀   留學學校:加州州立大學長堤分校

(一)基本資料

I study in California State University Long Beach. It is located in Long Beach City. The date that I arrived in USA is 2017/08/15, and I am going back at 2018/05/31. I had take several class here and it was all from different department.(42字)

(二)課程學習

【照片說明:This is the teacher who teach my favorite class】

When it comes to my favorite class, it will definitely be Intro to Leisure Services. The teacher of this class is called Pilar Alcivar-McCoy. She is a very nice person. She is not only a teacher but also a recreation and human services manager at City of Garden Grove. In this class we get to learn many things. There is an assignments that we need to interview two person. At least one of them has to work in the government sector and need to be at a supervisor or manager position. I think this assignment is kind of interesting and challenging. The interesting part is that I had never interviewed someone and it will definitely be a new experience. The challenge part is that this is my first time doing this and I will have to do this all by myself. I still remember that I am very nervous when I first went to City of Cerritos and to interview Heide Xitco, a recreation service supervisor.During the interview, I found out that it is quiet fun to listen to Heides' view and to share my view with her. I had never think that I would enjoy interviewing others. After the interview, we will have to organized the information that we got and present in front of the class. Many people may think that this is a very complicated course. But in my point of view, after this class, I became more independent. Knowing that I can accomplich the assignment by myself without someone helping me. I would definitely recommend this course and this teacher. Pilar is always nice to her student. She know that I am a study abroad student, so that we will meet regularly to make sure that I am catching up and give me the chance to ask her question that I have during the semester. I highly recommend this course. This is the class that you can gain a lot of knowledge.(327字)

(三)生活環境

照片說明:our apartment

【照片說明:our apartment】

I rent the apartment with my friends. They were also the student who studied in TKUL. The place we live is close to the circle area. The living environment here is very good and very convenient. We can get to vons (supermarket) within five minutes walk. There is a small center nearby our apartment. There are lots of restaurant in the center. Such as MarketPlace, IN-N-OUT, Panda Express, chipotle, wing stop, etc. In transportation, it used to be very convenient until my roommate has a car accident and crash my car. After that, we need to take Uber every time. Fortunately, there is a school bus bus stop in front of our apartment. So I don't need to worry about the transportation between home and school. The weather is Long Beach is very nice. It is unlike Taiwan, it seldom rains over here. The down side is that it sometimes get too windy.(153字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:my car

【照片說明:my car】

There are amounts of culture shock that I had confronted with, take the transportation gap between Taiwan and America for example. After arriving in America, the most important thing for me is to purchase a car. People can’t live without auto vehicle as a transportation tool in California, it’s like human being has no legs on, it will be very inconvenient. We found a dealership that near my apartment, it made me nervous by buying a car at the first time, I don’t know if things will turn out right or not. However, it is kind of a culture shock for me, in Taiwan I don’t even have to use a car as my transportation tool. The public transportation in Taiwan is extremely convenient and thrive, we can go everywhere we want by the metro, bus, or even on foot. Can’t even imagine that I have to drive to a supermarket, but I can say that it might because of the United States has enormous territory. After a couple months, my roomate accidentally bumped into the car in front of him. First time dealing with the car accident is quite nervous. The insurance company helps us a lot and so that we don't have to worry about it. Study and live in the foreign country is not an easy thing. No pain no gain. I believe that after this year I will become stronger and will have more courage to face the problem in the future. (251字)

(五)大三出國建議

When choosing for the apartment, it is always good to pick the place that is close to your school. Make sure that there is the bus stop near your home. Even when you have the car, it is better to take school bus to car. The school bus is free and very convenient. There is no need to drive to school by yourself. The parking fee in school is eight dollar per day. If you didn't pay the daily fee you will get the ticket. Trust me, it is way more expensive. When you move in the apartment, you will have to buy furniture. Buying the brand new furniture is kind of expensive. You can go on facebook and search for second hand furniture. Such as marketplace or 南加州華人買買買賣賣賣. You can finds lots of things over there and all of them are in a goo deal. Choosing courses is very important, make sure you read the syllabus carefully. And make sure you attend to class before you sign up for courses. Once you were in the class you can't drop it. Everyone skip classes, I sometime skip class too. Just keep in mind, if you skip too much class you will get WU grade after the semester. If you get WU, it means that you have to go back to Taiwan. I am sure that no one would want this to happen. One more important thing, if you want to buy the car, please be very careful and remember that never trust the sales man. I bought my car in Audi dealership. I thought I could get better and safer car over there. But it turns out that what they care is all about money, not for the buyers safety. (289字)
