The cruise business is the most interesting course among four courses I chose. It provides students with a comprehensive view and understanding of operational and managerial aspects of the cruise ship business. Regulation, marketing, human resources, security management, accommodation, food and beverage, itinerary planning and impacts are some of the aspects explored in the cruise industry. We had four assessments to do, two of them are short answers question. These were easier for me to complete by looking all the power points. The most difficult assessment is literature review because this was my first time and it required 2400 words and weight 50% which is a huge mission for me. Writing a professional Literature review took a long time to read a lot of relative journal article, newspaper, academic books and search non-academic references such as annual reports, statistics, web sources, etc. Besides, we needed to do the reference in text and the reference at the end of the page. To be honest, I felt very frustrated in the beginning, not knowing how to start thinking school provided the guideline to follow. However, when I read a large number of articles I absorbed lots of knowledge which beyond my expectation. During the process of searching the theme and topic, I always can find something interesting which not only make me impressive but also broaden my horizon. Although in Taiwan cruise industry is not as prosperous as in other countries like Australia, China, it still a potential promising market in the future. Therefore, taking this course is really helpful to acquire more cruise business knowledge. (262字)

Southern Cross University has three campuses, the main campus is at Lismore, and I study at Gold coast campus. It is a small but the newest campus which provides innovative shared services hub and industry-standard facilities. The Gold Coast is Australia's sixth largest city, famous with 70 kilometers of beaches, tropical rainforest hinterland, theme parks and shopping centers. The weather in gold coast is suited for living around 300 days of sunshine per year. Therefore, before going outside we will remind each other to pack the sunscreen in order to prevent sunburn. Two friends and I rent an apartment in Surfers paradise where is quiet famous tourist spot and the city center in gold coast. We really enjoy the life in gold coast with four theme parks, well-known shopping center, national park and countless nightclubs around the city. Besides, the public transportation is very convenience, for those who without a car like us. Light tram, train, bus, and mobike are all available for everyone and have connected tighter. With go card on hand, most of the time we can go wherever we want except for some suburb districts. Sometime, I will take the tram transfer to train to Brisbane which is the third biggest city in Australia. Normally it takes one and half hour. Its vibe is much different from gold coast more local culture and high business building. Both of the places are amazing city if I have a chance to come back I definitely will spend more time to experience the life here. (253字)

(四)自我成長

This university does not offer student dormitory, so we need to find the accommodation for ourselves which is a nightmare for me. Everything has been all good since the secondary month I moved away from home stay. We used the local website called Gumtree and also the Facebook page for the backpacker to find the accommodation. The ideal accommodation We want to find an apartment with furniture and the rent is Wi-Fi and utility included. It would be better if it is near the city center. We tried to talk to the study abroad team for getting some assist but did not get what we expect at the end. Therefore, we can just count on ourselves. We contacted several landlords viewed many apartments and commuted to every possible place in one month. Finally, we found a hotel apartment in the city center which near my internship company and has a perfect ocean view. Another challenge I meet with is to work in a whole English working environment. Unlike in university, students can be forgiving when they make mistakes, in the true reality, every behavior will be evaluated by a high standard even you are the new employee. Being a food and beverage attendant in the five-star hotel is a challenge and impressive experience in my study abroad year. Under this pressure made me more understand how to survive in the society plus in another language. Therefore, these difficulties really give me lessons how to keep living by your own self without many companies.(253字)

(五)大三出國建議

I would like to give some advice to those who also choose a southern cross university. First, the assessment may make you under much pressure but after you got through it. it is pretty obvious to see your growth even you cannot tell the specific evidence. No matter how many part-time works or assessment to do, spending some time on the local live. Australia is famous for high salary so it is a wonderful place to earn some pocket money. Besides, Mandarin, which is our mother language, is really useful less than English. It will be much easier to find a part-time job than other foreigners. Try to do some things that it is hardly can do in Taiwan. For example, we went to Cairns for a short vacation. We booked for the skydiving and, in fact, if my friend did not force me to do I will never have the courage to try this extreme activity. Therefore, I am appreciated that I make a right decision to do some things that will make your life impressive. Having some friends form others countries is very necessary. On the one hand, you can practice your verbal English ability, on the other hand, making new friends can broaden your horizon and also you will not feel alone. Last but not least, keep doing what you love to do and make it another way to meet people with the same habit. For example, if you like to dance, do not be hesitated to join a dancing club. It is a fast and wonderful way to adapt new environment. (265字)
