My favorite course would be Culture, at first I thought it was a course which would taught us the culture of Dubai, but finally I found out that it was not. It was more on the theory, it we still can learn the culture by the assignment the teacher gave, we were required to give a presentation of a country but not the country where we are from. By the presentation, I learn a lot of the culture of other countries. And the teacher even took us to visit Burj Al Arab, the seven star hotel, it was my first time to step into the hotel. At that time I could not imagine that I would have a chance to work in the hotel, I was just looking around and to experience how luxury it is. My favorite teacher would be our director of Industry liaison and professional development, she was always sending out our CVs to the properties, helping us to arrange to interviews and giving us the interviewing tips. She even taught us how to write a good CV, and she would review our CVs and told us how to make it better, or how we could improve it. But I felt so sorry to her, because we kept on interviewing and there was no response from the properties, so she had to keep on sending the CVs to other properties. The course I would recommend is English 102, because the teacher was really helpful and kept giving us assignment or essay every week, so we would keep on practicing our English skill, and the teacher would review our essay and give us the comment on where we can improve or where we did well. At the last three weeks of the trimester, she would ask us to debate. This is the thing that I would never have a chance to try in Taiwan, so we would have a chance to learn what is debate and how to debate.(330字)

(三)生活環境

The academy is located right in front of Burj Al Arab, the world most luxury hotel, and the academy is very small, even smaller than Tamkung University, but it is good to make friends. Our dorm is single room, everyone has their own room, and there is a kitchen inside the room, so we can cook our dishes. The laundry is shared, we have to share the washing machine with the other people, but the good thing is we do not need to spend money on doing the laundry. The environment beside the academy is very nice, there is a small mall near the academy, we can buy everything we need there, and we can walk about ten minutes to the bus stop, so we can go to everywhere we would like to go. The weather here is extremely hot, especially during May to October, and there is still winter in Dubai, but it is not as cold as Taiwan, it is just like fall in Taiwan. It is very convenient to live in Dubai, we can go to most of the place by bus, metro, uber or taxis. To live in Dubai, the most important thing is money. Everything here is very expensive, the first week when I just arrived in here, even having a dinner in McDonald was expensive to me, by the time pass by, now it is not so expensive to dine in a fine restaurant. Most of the UAE nationals are Muslim, so it is very difficult to find pork in the restaurant or the supermarkets. But we still can find pork in some of the supermarket, there will be a special zone for non-Muslims to buy the pork products.(285字)

(四)自我成長

Culture shock that I have experienced is the efficiency, the people here are very slow on doing everything, for example, when we finished an interview we usually can receive the result within a week in Taiwan, but in Dubai, I have been waiting for one month or even longer, so you can find out how slow they are. But when it comes to driving, it is totally a different thing, they drive very fast as if they are driving on the highway. The first day I arrived in Dubai, I thought that every road is highway but I finally found out that it was not. During Ramadan, every restaurant will be closed for dine in, they only open for take away, because it is disrespectful to Muslim is we are eating in front of them, so the malls will put a barrier between the food court and the shopping area not letting them to see inside. For the course, the biggest challenge for me is assignment, in Tamkung when we are doing a presentation or essay, we will hit be aware of the copy right, but before we handing in the assignment here, we have to find the references and upload to a web which can find out how many percentage we copy from the website or other people’s essay. But I am getting used to it slowly, now I will find the reference before handing in the assignment. And in the academy, they are really strict about the dress code, we have to wear the business attire every time, not to mention the midterm and the finals. This is very different from Tamkung, because even it is required to wear business attire on Mondays, no one is wearing it, and some of us even wear slippers to class.(300字)

(五)大三出國建議

To speak out your answers on class, even you are not sure about the question or the answer is not correct. Compare to the foreign students, they are always brave to speak out what they think, so the professor would be impressed. Not only in class, but also when you are interviewing. The interviewer would like to choose a person who is more active, so try to speak as much as got can. Visit as many places as you can when you are still studying, because once you start your internship, it is very difficult to gather all of the friends. Due to the weather here is very hot, so some of the activities will not be available during the summer time, such as the safari zoo, we would like to visit but we do not have time, then suddenly I heard that it is closed due the heat, so this experience told us, do not wait if you have a plan. Same thing when it comes to shopping, do not hesitate when you see something you like and it is on promotion, because next time when you are ready to but it, it may not be on promotion. Make as many friends as you can during your internship, because maybe in the future you would like to come back again to work and that time they are the best people who can recommend you to the property. If you are too shy to make friends, just try to say hi and smile to whoever you meet, by the time you will know each others and in the end you will become friends.(273字)
