(一)基本資料

When I was in junior year, I was transferred to Indiana University of Pennsylvania, which is located in Indiana PA. I studied from 2017/8/20-2018/5/16 major in tourism management. I choose few courses in my major, and some in other departments. Like wine and wine service, basic religion, basic economics and English functional writing.(53字)

(二)課程學習

【照片說明:wine course】

Wine and wine service is my favorite course in IUP. This course is major in hospitality management. This course make me feel challenge and plentiful in the whole semester, because I have never come into contact with this knowledge and course, however this is a compulsory course for seniors, so it’s a little bit hard for me. I learned so many different kind of taste skill, like how to smell the beverage to identify the origin and the climate in that country or look at the color of red wine under the lights to judge the year, acidity, and tannin. The most interesting is that I totally taste every country’s wine for free during this semester. At the same time, we also learned how to match different cheeses on different red wines so it’s very great course for cheese lover. My professor Joseph is a pretty fun guy on teaching, so compare the other course I choose, I love this course better. Sometimes we have a presentation on wine tasting, we have to present the wine we taste, talked about the flavor, place and what your feeling on your tongue and the spirit after you finish drinking in thirty seconds. We also have the field trip to visit the vineyard and participate in the process of making red wine and taste private brewed wine. It’s all about the memories for me, even I am finish the course. I still clearly remember the process on what I learned and what the insane alcohol in every each class. I will keep those things in mind, because it was a very special experience and course which I never been in contact before. (283字)

(三)生活環境

照片說明:IUP

【照片說明:IUP】

IUP is located in the small town of Indiana in Pennsylvania, it takes about an hour and a half to drive to the big city, so we go to the city almost twice a month, because there is no fun near the IUP and not so many things to eat. But I fell in love with IUP, because we can have so many times to hand out with friend and we usually eat in the school cafeteria, work out and play basketball together, and sometimes go to the supermarket to buy ingredients and cook together, so we live almost the same life in school. On holiday, I often go to party for drinking, smoking hookahs and smoking marijuana. However this is a very quiet place but people get along very friendly. It's probably snowing for about half a year and it’s really beautiful when snowing. Although local Americans think that it's very troublesome to snow because every time you drive, you have to spend a lot of effort to scrape snow, but I still like snowing days. Our school have so many party in different kind of festival, and we all have some special day that you can see so many people get drunk on the street, so IUP is a famous party in the United Stated. Our spring break lasts for about a month, which is longer than other college vacations. But basically nobody will stay in school. Most people will schedule a one-month US journey to know more about this country. (254字)

(四)自我成長

When I came to the United States, I was a little unaccustomed to being foreign students in the beginning. The professors also spoke very quickly and I could not understand all of them. Later, I handing in some foreign friends, to make me realized there culture quickly. At the same time to improve my English conversation fluently. Gradually I can even know their daily language and more easy to get into their daily life. However, it’s not easy to get into a group with the Americans or other international students. People still tend to stay in there comfort zone, but it’s not my style, I try to communicate with them and build emotional foundation but it’s not work. Finally I used my passion from basketball to make a group of real friend in IUP. I almost travel around the US in all of the vacation, and I learned so many things and faced so many problems during my vacation, like I was stopped by the police because I was over speeding. At that time the police car was only flashing but it did not whistle to stop us, so I was nervous when I stopped, because the U.S. police have the absolute power to use force, as long as he feels you do not obey the command. Finally I just get the 232 bucks ticket and everything was fine. There are so many things happening in this year, there must be some growth. Everything that comes out of the comfort zone and goes abroad to handle any life is a new experience. It can only be said that I love foreign life too much but it is not suitable for me to come back. But I have to say Taiwanese food is really delicious and I miss it too much when I’m in US. I am also experience many new things in this year, this is the best year in my life. I thought everything i learned in this year will help me to be a greater person in the future. (345字)

(五)大三出國建議

I am very recommend underclassmen studying in IUP, especially study in US. There are so many holiday during the whole semester, you can enjoy your trip and travel around in this year. We also can match the home family in the beginning of semester, you can join their life or do something they invite in US, to make you feel not lonely in the beginning. Don’t be shy to make friends with other foreign students, they are very passion and willing to make friends with you. Remember do not always get alone with your Taiwanese friends or someone can speak your language. It may stop you to practice more English conversation in this year, so try hard to make more native speaker in your junior life. (127字)
