觀光B 405867242  邱愛絜  留學學校:賓州印第安那大學

(一)基本資料

The university that I choose to go is Indiana University of Pennsylvania, this school is located at America, Pennsylvania, Indiana. The semester started at 08/23/2017, and ends at 05/12/2018. I was in the language class first semester, I learned writing and America's culture. The next semester I transfer to the undergraduate class, and the classes that I choose were Japanese, Geography, entrepreneurship, and Theater. (62字)

(二)課程學習

照片說明:My Japanese classmate and teacher

【照片說明:My Japanese classmate and teacher】

My favorite class in this school is Japanese, because I am really interest in Japanese and this teacher teach very well. I took this class in the first semester and the second semester. The teacher who teach this class is an Asian, so he can pronounce the language correctly. this class is very interesting, at the beginning and the end of the class we need to say good morning or thank you, good bye in Japanese and bow to the teacher, and if we need him or need to say thank you to him, should also use Japanese. he teach us words that we can use in day life, to let us remember more, he will say it again and again and use examples, he also will tell us some Japanese culture when we meet some new vocabulary that English can not explain, or play a song. teacher give us a lot of time to practice with a partner in class, and after we practice by ourselves, he will do it again with class together, to let us know whether is wrong or right. We have homework every class, that really help me to remember those grammar and vocabularies, and weekly test to let me check that do I really know what did I learn. It might be a little bit easy for Chinese, because some of Japanese's "kanji" are same as Chinese characters. I really learn a lot in this class, and the teacher give us a lot of confidence, to encourage the students talk more. there are some Japanese in this university, so sometimes I will practice with them. I also made some friends in this class, I knew Taiwanese students from our university in the first semester, and knew the IUP students in the next semester. they are all very kind and friendly, sometimes we will have dinner or lunch together, and talk about something like culture, food, life, and Japanese class. I always have a good time with my classmates.(334字)

(三)生活環境

照片說明:Snow

【照片說明:Snow】

The environment of our university, this place is very cold in winter, the first snow we met was in November and it keep snowing until April, so we need to wear our coat and boots to class, but the indoor was very warm, so we don't need to wear too heavy. And in the summer, it is very hot but dry, need to watch out if you don't want to be black. There have many buildings in our university, some of them are dinning halls, some of them are classrooms, and some of them are dorms. the place there is a little bit big, so it is a good choice that go to class early. the dorm we lived call Wallwork, there have three floors and different kind of room type, and each room include bathroom and a little kitchen with a microwave and refrigerate. About food, if you want to buy some snakes or meals off campus, there have free bus that only need to show your student ID, and the bus will pass by Walmart and Martin's, place there will also have some restaurants so you can get something special. On campus, there are two dinning halls, it's like buffet, use one meal each time and you can eat anything you want. But if your are tired of dinning halls, there are also two place that have many stores that sell food and drinks, and some stores can use meal plans to change meals, some only can use flex or cash.(253字)

(四)自我成長

照片說明:We had dinner together!

【照片說明:We had dinner together!】

A whole new place with many people you don't know, only can speak English to talk with others, it was very scary for me. When I just arrival there, the first thing that I really afraid of was order, I don't know how to start the conversation and tell the staff what I want, but I still need to eat so I must to do the order, so I get a little bit closer to the front and try to listen what did other people said, and now I won't be so nervous when I face to the staff and can clearly tell them what I want. The second thing was coins. Americans use cent, so they will have some coins that we need to figure out how much cent is it, I always gave the wrong coin when I was paying something at the beginning, it really takes me some time to remember and recognize. About the culture shock, food was the thing that really made me impression, some ways that Americans eat is really weird and I can't understand. One time, me and my Taiwanese and American friends were having dinner together, and I saw a friend he add chocolate syrup in his coke, he told us that American kids add chocolate syrup in everything, and I try it, that is really gross. This trip made knew and made friends with more people, they gave me so many precious memories, and let me become more independent in life, can do more things by myself and even help others.(260字)

(五)大三出國建議

You might be nervous when you just get there, and you will feel lost, don't know what should do and where is where, you will also be very stunning when you saw the campus and dorm, and some of you will have home sick in the beginning. But everything will be fine after staying there for months, and even don't won't to go when you need to leave. About class,if your English score didn't reach the standard that they require you can take half language class half undergraduate class, it is the same fee with the whole language class, you can choose what kind of class you want in both, and won't be that tired as whole language class, if you finish first semester and want to change to undergraduate class, there have some test you can go or do it by your own, just reach their require and you're pass. And undergraduate class we usually pick freshman or sophomore's class. You can decide to take the class you want or the class can transfer credit more. About life, do anything you want but try not to do anything illegal, and if you want to drink alcohol, need to be 21 years old and bring your id like passport when you go to buy alcohol stuff. About food, the food in dinning hall is not that good after I went there for a month, so there will have many different store you can try off campus or there also have supermarket, you can cook by yourself, but remember to buy kitchenware first. Enjoy your trip! (265字)

(六)其他

When we have long vacation, we will travel to other city. The first place I went was Philadelphia, it was very different with Indiana, the life there was more convenient and expensive, and it was very fresh for me. The second place was New York, a place that I never thought I will go, everything just like dream, and the food was so good, everywhere was so pretty, I love New York. The third one was San Francisco, it was a little bit boring for me, but the food was also good, the best ramen I had try in America is in San Francisco. And the last place and it also was the place I went several times, Texas. Texas is a huge state, I just went to Houston and Austin, and stay at my family's house during the cold winter and Christmas.
