語言 404817065  郭芷君  留學學校:桑德蘭大學(英國)

(一)基本資料

I studied in the University of Sunderland in the UK, and it is located in Sunderland, England. I've stayed here from 23/7/17-20/6/18. I have chosen French 1, French 2, Fashion Journalism, Describing Modern English, English For Business Studies and Order From Chaos (Narrative and Poetry).(43字)

(二)課程學習

My favorite lesson is Fashion Journalism. One of the reasons I like this lesson is because of the teaching method. In the university of Sunderland, every course has the seminar or the workshop. It gives the students more opportunities to learn and ask the professors questions. It is the most different part from Tamkang university. Although the professors always ask us to discuss in the class, Tamkang university does not separate a course into discussing class and teaching class. There are a lot of assignments need to hand in, but it is still an interesting course. Another reason I like this course is because one of the assignments is fun. The assignments include interview strangers from the street. The professor said it is one of the skills that journalists need to have and learn. I went to Newcastle to do this assignment, which is about asking strangers’ outfit. It is not very easy for me not only because I have to speak English to the strangers, but also not everyone is willing to be taken pictures. Fortunately, most of the young strangers in the UK are friendly and extrovert. I also met some people, who are from Cyprus and Chile. Bridges is a shopping mall in Sunderland, and the professor invited marketing planning personnel from Bridges to the class. The lecturer talked about how they attract customers by having the events like Bridges fashion weeks event. She also taught the students how to interview people in the polite way. In the workshop, the professor taught the students how to take great pictures, and this is my favorite part of this course. The professor asked the students to watch the fashion live show and write a fashion news. Before having this course, I did not know people can watch fashion live shows by computer, so they do not need to go to New York, Milan, London or Paris to watch the shows. I learned a lot of new things from this course.(331字)

(三)生活環境

【照片說明:the city near Sunderland】

There are two campuses in the University of Sunderland. One is at the city center, and another is at St. Peters. Each campus has one library, and the biggest one is called Murray library. All my courses are at St. Peter’s campus, so I seldom go to city campus. The university has four accommodations. One is called Clanny House, which is near city campus, and I lived at there. Another is called the Forge U Student Village. Other two are called Scotia Quay and Panns Bank, and they are near St. Peter’s campus and the river. One student has one room in the accommodations, and Scotia Quay supplies a fridge in the room. One flat has six to seven rooms, two to three toilets, one bathroom, one shower room and one kitchen. I very love the accommodation because the students do not need to share their room with each other. There is a bus stop in front of Clanny House, so it is very convenient. The students can take the buses to city center and campuses, and the students from the University of Sunderland do not need to buy the bus tickets. Aldi is a discount supermarket chains from Germany, and there is an Aldi supermarket near Clanny House. People only need to spend 8 minutes to walk to there from Clanny House. There is a Bridges shopping mall in the city center. People can buy food, coffee, clothes, daily essentials, shoes and cosmetics in this shopping mall. Although it is very wet in the UK, it is still drier than Taiwan’s weather. It is very cold in Sunderland because it is in the north of England. People also can wear long sleeve clothes in summer. It snowed in the last winter in Sunderland, but you do not worry about that. There is a heater in each room. Every accommodation has different prices, and Clanny House is the cheapest one. They separate to three periods for the students to pay, so you do not need to bring too much money at the beginning. The accommodation fee is about 3,339 pounds. There is a bank called Barclays near Bridges shopping mall, and you can apply a student bank account at there. You also can go to Newcastle by metro in the weekend. Therefore, it is a great city for living and learning.(392字)

(四)自我成長

【照片說明:Greece】

This was my first time to go abroad without my family or my friends, so I was very nervous at the beginning. In Taiwan, it is cheap to eat food in the restaurant, but it is very expensive to eat outside in the UK. It is impossible for me to eat outside every day, so I need to learn how to cook. Fortunately, there is a kitchen in my accommodation, and I learned how to cook by the videos from Facebook. I found out it is healthier to eat the food, which is made by myself because I can decide to add how much oil and salt. I also need to learn to compare the prices between different stores. People can learn more things by traveling than in the classroom. There are two long vacations in the University of Sunderland. I suggest you can travel with your friends in the first time, and you can travel alone. Then, you will have different experiences and have more gains. There are a lot of friendly people around the world, so you just need to talk to them. You also can tell them about your country and culture. I am a shy girl, so I keep challenging myself during this year by traveling. I also learned how to ski during this year by joining the club. No one will judge other people at here, so you do not need to care about it. Keep trying everything, even if it is not the right answer. You cannot find out the right answers for everything, especially in your normal life.(265字)

(五)大三出國建議

First, the students need to know about their main purpose because it is the important reason for them to choose a school. The students want to get a lot of credits during the study abroad year, what they want to learn from this school or they do not want to spend too much money during this year. Every university has different courses to supply to the students. Every city’s living expenses are different. For example, London’s living expenses are more expensive than Sunderland’s living expenses. Every university also has different prices of their tuition and accommodation fee. Transportation is important for the students to choose a school, too. The students do not need to pay for the buses to go to the school when they study in the University of Sunderland. It is easy to go to Newcastle and the airport by metro, so it is convenience for students to travel to other countries. The UK is near to other European countries, and students can experience different countries’ culture by travel. It is better for the students to find the academic calendar before they go abroad because they can make the travel plans earlier. Then, they can book the tickets and the accommodation early to save money. That also can make them have more time to study. There are a lot of different kinds of club in the University of Sunderland, and I suggest the students to participate in the clubs. There are more opportunities to make friends with foreigner, and you can improve your English by talking with them. It is a great chance for the students to study abroad, so you should cherish the moment.(280字)

(六)其他

I very love this country. Even if not everyone is kind, not everyone is friendly in Taiwan, ether. I suggest you to come to the University of Sunderland. You will not regret.(32字)
