【照片說明:Arabic II classmates and dear Asmaa】

My first impression on Arabic language, which is Arabic characters look so cool like art. I still remembered the first day of class, the teacher asked everyone why we wanted to learn this language. Someone learns it is for her boyfriend, someone learns it is for the future plan, someone learns it is for traveling and others learn it are just for the curiosity. My teacher is Asmaa. (in Arabic means name) She is from Egypt. I love her teaching methods. She teaches us just like teaches little children. She asked us to say it out loud and to keep repeating those we’ve learnt, which is to make them become long-term memory. Moreover, the whole class has only about ten students so that we and the teacher make a strong connection. We are not just learning language, we are also learning Arabic culture and eating Arabian food. After I learned Arabic language, I found that it is similar to Hebrew, Urdu, in some parts of Hindi and in some parts of Swahilis; fortunately, most of friends are those who can speak Arabic, Hindi, Urdu and Swahilis fluently. My Arabic tutor, Khalid is also an Egyptian. He teaches me Egyptian Arabic and I teach him Mandarin. Because of him, I know that Arabic language has many dialects and the most popular dialect is Egyptian Arabic rather than standard Arabic, which means almost every Arabic speaking countries all can understand Egyptian Arabic. And the Arabic language we learn in other countries is standard Arabic and it is close to Saudi Arabic language. I am grateful for all this year we’ve experienced; it helps me get to know this mysterious language easily and to make some awesome Arabic native speakers as friends. (291字)

(三)生活環境

Indiana University of Pennsylvania is a beautiful and lovely university. As an international student in IUP, we have to live in campus and have to buy meal plans for the cafeteria in campus. I still remembered one thing is very important to every IUP students when they first day come to the university, which is Icard; it includes meal plans, access for residential building and the room, cash for the laundry and the public transportation. In eating part, I have meal plans, so I have eaten American food for one year. I definitely miss Taiwanese food so much because there is no Chinese market in Indiana. Otherwise, we are not allowed to cook in the room, but most of Taiwanese students still have a small cooker in our room. In living part, girls and boys are living in the same residential building, we do not live separately. It is quite convenient that there are laundry room, study room, pool table, computer lab, kitchen, lounge and convenient store in the residential hall. To me, it is a cool experience because around my room all lives boys, and we have our own washroom, so it doesn’t matter. The most annoying thing to me is the fire alarm; once the smoke was detected by the machine even just put popcorn in to the microwave, whole building’s fire alarm will open and it has very loud noise, everyone should go outside of the building even if it is snowy or is happening at midnight. The environment around the campus, there are just a few restaurants and some bars. We don’t have many choices for shopping in town, we have to drive about one hour to Pittsburgh. In my opinion, for locals in Indiana, the living environment is quite good, but if it is for those whom only stay for short-term like us, it is not so convenient compared with other university. In the weather part, from August to about October, the weather in Indiana is cool but to some people may feel little bit cold; from November to the next May, it is the coldest time in Pennsylvania. Till the time we are about to leave the weather is just getting warmer. During this year, it is my first time wear snowy coat in winter time because I always wear T-shirt and a thin coat.(394字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:Taiwan+India+Kenya=The Travelors (the best companions)】

I don’t know if it happens in most of everywhere in the US, there is something which I got shocked the most, one is that people here use lots of plastic bags especially in the market and the other one is that in cafeteria, we should not use the same plate more than one time, we should take a new plate when getting the other food. Apart from these parts, everything is good and I do not have the problem of adaptation. Most of college students in the US, they all know what is the next step after their college life. And I also decided what I am going to do in the near future; I have my blueprint in my mind, and I wish I could really follow the plan. I see some of my friends in the US, they are learning more than one specialty, which means they have at least two majors, and they can combine all of specialties and can have more opportunities in the future. And it makes me remember that my father had told me that I could learn one more specialty and combine all of them into your strength. After I came to the US, I have met lots of African friends, Indians and friends from Arabic speaking countries. I found that African friends are very polite to people, have sense of humor and very like to make friends. Most of Indian friends, no matter girls or boys, are good at cooking; about values of time, they have their own Indian time. We are hard to change them, only can try to get used to their habits. Friends from Arabic speaking countries, boys and girls are look handsome and beautiful and they all special voice; maybe it is because they speak Arabic. These three kinds of people, it is hard to meet them in Taiwan. To me, it is the most experience in this year.(323字)

(五)大三出國建議

If anyone wants to go to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, there are some suggestions. Firstly, the weather in Indiana is much colder than Taiwan, especially from about November to the next May. You do not need to bring a lot of summer clothes from Taiwan; you can just bring winter clothes and prepare a pair of boots, which is necessary for everyone. Secondly, students who live in dorm are not allowed to cook in the room. There is only a microwave and a refrigerator in the room. But there is a kitchen at the ground floor of the dorm, you just need to swipe your icard and then you can use the kitchen. Thirdly, about the course that you can take in IUP; there are many choices, and we are as a international student, we can choose most of courses we want except some specific courses we cannot take. we do not have full courses in a week, and we will have lots of free time that we can spend time with other friends or can join clubs.
