觀光B 404864026  肖 淳  留學學校:國際飯店管理學院(澳洲)-限觀光系

(一)基本資料

International College of Hotel Management is my junior study abroad school which is located in the north of Adelaide. ICHM is a professional hotel management college which provides abundant hotel related studying resources such as food and beverage knowledge and effective communication skills. I joined in a one-year study abroad program in ICHM from July 15, 2017, to June 19, 2018, that is half year studying on campus and half year industry placement. For this program, students usually take four courses which are necessary including Food and beverage service standard, Room Division and Delivering Guest Services Standard. These courses and training are essential for the following industry placement. For me, the fourth course is Applied Business Communication for improving communication abilities.(117字)

Most of us would pick BBHM102 Food and Beverage Service Standard as our favorite course since it not only has knowledge lectures but also give us lots of fun during practical sessions. First of all, we have a knowledgeable and passionate lecturer, Richard Hunter, who have abundant industry experience and master food and beverage knowledge. He is a warm-heart gentleman and takes good care of us. This course introduces basic and essential western food and beverage knowledge as well as service standard including cheese, appetizer, dessert, coffee, tea, wine, beer, cocktail and all the related service procedures and standards. The best part of this course is it combine theories with practice. For instance, when we having the cheese lesson, we would have lecture first to let us have general concepts and knowledge about cheese. And leave few days for us to have a further study by ourselves and we would have a practical session which prepares different cheese and their accompaniments for us to taste in order to build up our understanding about the cheese. It was quite fun because it was a great chance to knowledge western food since cheese is not a common food we eat in our daily life but Australian people love it. Other similar examples would be our wine, tea and coffee sessions. In our wine session, it is detail from the vintage, storage to sell. We need to fully understand the basic wine knowledge and know about different wine features and what meal are perfect to combine with them. Another my favorite session is coffee session. It is the session that teaches us how to make six basic coffee in Australia and give us enough resources to practice. Making coffee need a long time practice and this session give us a lot of material from coffee powder to milk. And we had our session in a small group that teacher can give everyone advice. It was fun to make your own coffee and cooperate with your classmates. Because Food and beverage service standard is necessary for industry placement, for the open options, I will recommend BBHM109 Applied Bussiness Communication will be a better choice compared with Microsoft course since it will be more helpful for the following industry placement.(375字)

Since being established in 1992 in partnership with the Swiss Hotel Association (SHA) and the South Australian Government, ICHM has produced graduates of the highest caliber that now work at all levels of management within the international hospitality industry. ICHM does not have its own campus and dormitory. It shares both campus and dormitory with other school and companies. ICHM and other two school share one building as lecture classroom and assembly area. And another building also shares as function area for students to practice as well as other open to public functions. About dormitory, we lived in RIH which is an open accommodation to public group booking. Because we were living the northern Adelaide where is quiet and close to industrial area, overall, the environment is good and have housekeeping service as well. It is thirty minutes walk from RIH to the nearby gym. It also has a shopping mall in twenty minutes bus trip. The weather in Adelaide is a little dry but comfortable. It is not to hot in summer and acceptable temperature in winter. In our personal room, we have our own heater and a shared Air Conditioner in a living room. The supporting facilities are plenty and good quality. Living in RIH, students can stay with their classmates and build up a closer relationship. Our meal fee already includes in our dormitory fee which means it included three meals every day. Meals in RIH are good and sometimes even can taste Taiwan traditional food since lots of Taiwanese here and there is a great Asian chef in RIH. There is some Asian restaurant surround RIH and more around a shopping mall. When we get tired of meals in the RIH, most of the time, we would go to the Vietnamese restaurant which is only five minutes walk from RIH.(303字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:Make friends from other countries

【照片說明:Make friends from other countries】

When we come to ICHM, the most important thing is get oursevles prepared for the following six months industry placement. It is a formal job and working in four or five stars hotel. Therefore, the first thing we need to do is know what is essentail knowledge within this industry and study hard. Studying in ICHM is totally a different thing against studying in Lanyang Campus. First of all, class in ICHM are all small group and all students are all encourge to speak up in the class. Above that, the first few days, our exchange students are worry about go to classroom because it mean we are going to speak up in the class with the language we are not flunt. English oral communication is the first difficult thing happened to us. Later on, when we get to know more students and making friends with a person come from another side of the earth, we started to enjoy the life here and get use to the language gap. We are just not flunt in English, but it can not stop our desire of talking, sharing and making friends. Next difficulty is our assignment. Assigments are requeired following the reference format of Unisa and structure. It also require acadamic references to support our agreements which could not from wikipidedia and other unformal resources. At the begening, it really give us a lot of persure to write a report. Later on, ICHM provide report and assay writing lession for students who are not clear about how to write their assignments. We also learn a lot from that and get lots of help from our lecturer. If we were not sure about the meaning of assignment questions or have some questions about assignemnts, we all free to ask our lecturer and they will give us answers or point out the way for our assignment.

(五)大三出國建議

Hi sophomore students, Here is some advice for your junior study abroad. First of all, if you choose ICHM, which mean you already choose a hard way for your following year. Please prepare yourself to face that. Sometimes you and your Chinese speaking friends stick together and let you forgot the difficulty you will going to meet next six months. My first advice does not forget to work hard and study hard. Keep in mind how much this trip cost you and your family. Since you already come to a new environment, do not do the same thing you can do in Taiwan. Second advice is about making friends and training yourself. When you go to industry placement, it is a formal work and you represent your country and ICHM. You need to make sure your behaviors are suitable and your language is good. It means during your first semester, you need to keep practice your oral English and make sure there are no barriers when you communicate with others. Above that, you should try to make friends with other nationality students who can border your eyesight as well as a good chance to practice English. However, you and your Taiwan classmates also need to take care of each other since all of you are leaving your own place and come to a new environment. For example, some of us interview each other and presentation practices. Last but not least, you own safety is your first priority. Make sure you take good care of yourself and keep distance with stangers.(260字)
