(一)基本資料

In the third grade, I chose IUP to study, it is located at Indiana, Pennsylvania. As I am a bridge student, I went there before the orientation. And I also took one and two IUP classes in each semester.(39字)

(二)課程學習

The favorite class is wine and wine service, I took this class at the first semester. It can credit food and beverage class in TKU. The reason I like this course is because I am an alcohol person. The class is talking about both red wine and white wine. I did not have any contact with wine, so I thought it is a cool class. You will learn how to read the label, where the wine from, how these wine make, and different kind of grapes. Every class, teacher will bring one or two wine, everyone can have a glass of wine to try it. You need to try in a professional way, and then remember the taste. The teacher is also a chef, so you can ask him how to pair food with that wine, or even how to use the wine on food. In this class, not only learn about wine knowledge, but also need to know how to service other people. It is really important in the upscale hotel or restaurant. If you service in a wrong way, you may be thought as amateur. In the middle of class, there will be two weeks about beers to take a rest of wine. You learn about draft beer, it is different from beer. Draft beer can increase appetite, promote digestion and absorption, and also good to increase weight. But I am not a beer person, so it doesn’t attract me a lot, at least I learn some new knowledge. At the end of class, you are required to make a wine list with wine introductions, and pair it with foods as you like. You can image you are a boss owned a bar or restaurant, it is really interesting. Chef will also give you some suggestion to make the wine list better. He is a nice and friendly teacher, and take great care of international students.(319字)

(三)生活環境

Indiana of Pennsylvania University is a good place to study because it is located in a small town, there will be so many entertainment venues attract you, so you can focus on study. If you want to socialize with others, there still lots of parties and societies. The dormitory is the best I have ever seen, room is spacious, comfortable in summer but warm in winter. There’s even a refrigerator and microwave, so you can take food back and easy to eat. Wal-Mart is a really convenient supercenter, you can find almost everything you want there just like Carrefour. I really like the student restaurant in school because it just like kind of buffet, you only need to pay one meal to get in. One meal equals half of price you that the food you eat outside, so it is quite cost-effective. But if you like to eat take-out food, there have some Chinese, Thai, and Japanese food around school. The clothes here is very cheap that let me know why people like to come to U.S., and buy shoes and clothes to sell, the only problem is the type must have some different to Asian. About the traffic, there are some busses in Indiana, you can take it as free with your ID card of school. The last one is the only part I don’t like, weather. The weather here is not fixed, so you have to check to wear. There might be rain, sunny, snow, and windy in the same day. Although this kind of weather is cool, but I’m not totally like it.(270字)

(四)自我成長

If you are not really good in English, you may find many problems. I only got 5 on IELTS, and still cannot understand on most of classes. I think the most important part is vocabulary, it may be the main reason. My vocabulary is really weak, so even I can listen clearly but doesn’t know the meaning. And it also makes you hard to socialize with others. I think I am better than before, environment really helps. When you live in a place all speaks English, you will try to learn how the native speaker’s pronunciation and vocabulary you never heard. There is one things really cool: people here will greet or even have a small chat when meet each other, not just like say “Hi!” And they also help open the door until next person come. There is also a Enterprise, a car rental place. In America you might be over 21 to rent a car, and it will charge teenager fee if under 25. Sometimes they won’t rent you the car that you already deal, and different state has different rules. So you have to change your original plan, this can improve your problem solving ability. Fortunately, I didn’t encounter a terrorist attack and racial discrimination. These two things are most feared by international students. Instead, I met a lot of friendly people here, they will help when I have troubles. If you didn’t do will on something, they will encourage you not blame on you. It teaches me that do not afraid wrong, only afraid you do not do.(264字)

Just as I said make some friends, they will teach you something not in the book and they might help you when you have problems. Also, they will bring you to different party or event to integrate into local life. Then you will found that there many interesting things waiting for you. Don’t forget to find host family, this is the thing I really regrettable. I have a lot of friends apply for host family, everyone looks enjoy when they have fun together. They will invite you to celebrate the important holidays like thanksgiving and Christmas. Some of the host families have children, you can know the growing environment of American. The most important part is learn to do things by yourself, many of us still stay together and rely on each other. Although you can learn something when together, but it is limited. Even you can try to travel by yourself, I think this can learn and experience many things. You don’t know what will happen, so you have to prepare to face problems at any time. One person's travel will definitely make you grow. For me, I was shy and afraid to talk to stranger before. But after I travel alone, I can make plan of my trip, take airplane, book hotel… and so on. Even if my English is not good to communicate with service personnel, I still can do it. Just think what you can do, you have internet to search how to solve problems, or ask passerby don’t always rely on friends.(260字)
