觀光B 404860263  林莉敏   留學學校:阿联酋酒店管理学院(杜拜)-限觀光系

(一)基本資料

I studied at EAHM from 12th September to 15th December in Dubai. In the school, I took 4 courses which are Front Office, Business, Culture, and English. As for the internship, I’ve worked as a waitress at the Westin Abu Dhabi golf & spa resort from 17th December to 17th July. (50字)

(二)課程學習

My favorite course is business, the lecturer is David Butterton, who is a passionately old professor. First of all, the teacher emphasizes attendance, as well as lots of reports and assignments. I have to concentrate in the class every moment, otherwise, I would miss the important part. The class has approximately 25 students from all over the world, the teacher divides the students into the small group in order to let us know and help each other. Next, I would like to introduce the class. At the beginning of every class, the teacher prepares different types of the newspaper, we have to read and organize one of the news, then do the presentation in front of the students. To be honest, I’m stress out about it due to the lack of confidence and ideas, but it is a great process for me to grow. This business course is talking about the hotel, casino, cruise, exhibition and especially the coming EXPO 2020. My favorite part is cruise industry, as I know, the industry has well-explored in the world, but I didn’t have many chances to know casino and cruise industry when I was in Taiwan, so I’m interested in this section in the class. Apart from hotels, I get a lot of knowledge of tourism industries. Also, because of EXPO2020 in Dubai, the professor tells us a lot of things about it and exhibition section, it is really interesting and good to know for our future. In our group project, our team members are from Pakistan, Iran, Korea, China and Taiwan. We go to some hotels, spend a lot of time on our project. We know each other and help each other for our final presentation, especially we have a hard-working team leader to lead us, and we get a nice grade in the end. It is an unforgettable memory that we had a good time in the class.(319字)

(三)生活環境

Our academy is quite small and we don’t have large numbers of students, it is kind of like Lanyang campus. But, there is a supermarket and public beach nearby. We usually take uber, bus and metro to anywhere, the good transport here and fares are not too much expensive. As long as we want to go out to relax, I recommend Mall of Emirates, Dubai mall, and JBR area, the people can shop there and have a good meal, pay the bill or watch movies in the mall(especially MOE has 鼎泰豐). The place is like XINYI district in Taipei, the house rent is expensive, and also the sports cars are everywhere you can see on the streets. Besides, the most popular 7-star hotel, some Jumeirah properties, and lovely restaurants are opposite to the school. Not to mention the public security, due to strict laws of the government, the security of the place is totally safe and good, especially some specific laws for protecting women, for example, women have own seats on metro and bus and men are not allowed to enter. Next, I would like to recommend our accommodation environment on campus, each student has own room that included bathroom, kitchen, free A/C as well. Some lucky students are able to see the Burj Al Arab through the windows. Besides, I usually cook, there is a convenient Chinese supermarket APP which is溫超that people can buy Chinese food, drinks, and daily supplies on it, so I am able to make my favorite food every day. As for the weather, the temperature is about 35-45 degree, it is extremely hot. Every time when I go out, I just want to go some places where has A/C, but do not be worry, a lot of places have strong A/C. Winter starts until November, the weather is nice and windy.(311字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:和同事們一起吃飯

【照片說明:和同事們一起吃飯】

Until now, I think the things I met makes me stronger. One of the unacceptable things is food, here has a lot of Indian, Southeast Asian and Southern Asian, so the most of the food in the food court is Indian food, the only thing I eat is fast food, such as Mc Donald’s and KFC, that’s why I cook. Another unacceptable thing is sometimes our Chinese face is unique in this multicultural society, it makes that a lot of people look at you suddenly. For example, one time I went to Dubai museum with my friends, a lot of Indian guys were looking at us, asking you something, I really don’t like this feeling honestly. In addition to, after I came to Abu Dhabi for the internship, as I know, in our inland community only has two Taiwanese girls, it means that my face is too unique in here. We have a lot of Indian, Nepalese, Pakistani, Sri Lankans, Pilipino and Indonesian in this area. When I go to the mall nearby my accommodation, a lot of foreign even local people look at you every time and everywhere, I feel a bit of upset because I am unique. I would like to share some culture shocks I experienced, everyone knows a lot of rich family in Dubai, it is totally true. Our school is located in a high-level area, so we can see a lot of luxury houses and cars everywhere. Besides, we have many discounts in shopping mall due to the national day at the end of October, then some rich people buy a great deal of spoils, they ask staffs to put the shopping bags on the luggage trolley which is the same like in hotels and the staffs stand in front of the shops taking care of their shopping bags. Another point is that some Arabic women cover their face with black scarf only show the eyes in public, but, some of them cover the whole face with scarf even the eyes, I’m just wondering how can they see and walk, plus, they usually put on high hills. I really admire the women here.(362字)

(五)大三出國建議

I sincerely suggest everyone can cherish the time in school, although too much assignment still having time to have fun. You can also improve your English ability during this time. The teacher will ask you to make your CV at the end of September, and then you will have some interview in October and November. During the time of finding an internship, you may feel tired and exhausted because you have to do the interview, reports, tests at the same time. What if you have good language ability and good interview, you are able to ease the stress earlier. As long as you miss your hometowns’ food you can go to drink bubble tea in sharetea, 鼎泰豐 in MOE, or TAIPEI TAO near Dubai Mall. The fried rice, beef noodles, and a lot of tasty Taiwanese food there. By the way, I would like to suggest you enjoy your student life in Dubai, after you start the internship, you may be not had too much time to have fun and enjoy this country. As an intern here, the basic working hours is 9 hours, also the transport time and sometimes you may have to overtime, you can’t have enough leisure. The important thing is you only can get one day off a week, it is hard but you can survive though. As for the internship, I’m into being a waitress because I like cooking and food, I never regret about this. My job is about making drinks, foods carrying the trays, serving the guests, also organizing small thing in our restaurant. I encountered some good and bad customers, some of them chatted with me, making my life much fun and happy, even I did the wrong things but they forgave me. And my work is not allowed to sit, so I have to stand 8-9 hours per a day, it’s really tired. I would like to suggest you that working in Dubai instead of Abu Dhabi. Now I’m living in Abu Dhabi, compare with Dubai, the place is boring and no delicious food/good transportation and shopping mall. Personally, I prefer the environment and life in Dubai.(359字)

(六)其他

I’m so glad to being here. I did one of my bucket lists, I experienced skydiving on the Palm island, it was an unforgettable memory in my life, and the view was so incredible and amazing. Another activity is desert safari, I watched some wonderful shows and ate Arabic dinner, rode a camel and took a series of pictures on the desert.(63字)
