(TUCEP 實習生 陳同學 國立勤益科技大學 電機工程系四年級)
Last May I received an e-mail from the NCUT office of international affairs, and the email mention TIP program of Tunghai university, I’m still student now ,so I decided to apply this program, this experience must be helpful for my future, After passed the first interview, we finally met Professor Taticchi, I was quite nervous , Because this was my first English interview , Finally, I am very happy after I passed the interview, I’m going to enter another phase of life, start internship in Italy!
I am quite excited to come to Italy, and The preference here are quite different from Taiwan, it’s difficult to use to it at the beginning, and Most Italians do not speak English, so learning how to speak Italian is the most important thing in Italy. In addition, Italian culture is very interesting, Italian people usually use gestures to emphasize the current mood of the moment, Coffee also are indispensable element of Italians.
I was members of the basketball team in my university, I think playing basketball is a very good way to meet new friend, So if I have leisure time I will take a ball to the stadium, Basically the people who came to playing basketball are Italians, but some of them are for others country, like Peru or Spain, the reason which I love basketball is everyone could be friends wherever you from!
In addition we also make a friend in the dormitory, his name is Giovanni, He is a student of Foreign Languages Department and began to study Chinese in February, because he wrote a Chinese letter to us, hoping to know us in order to understand the culture of Taiwan and also want to learn more Chinese word, We are very surprised that he can write Chinese, so we decided to teach him Chinese.
He invited us to stay in his hometown for one night, in order to let us to know about Italian life, Not only did traditional Italian dishes for us, but also teaches us how to make a Christmas tree, We also cook the dishes of the Taiwan for feedback, these unforgettable memories I will keep on my mind, we’re really glad to know him.
In addition to internships and live in Italy, I also went to ten countries during the Christmas holidays, one of the most impressed me is Iceland, Iceland is located in the middle of Greenland and the United Kingdom, Iceland has a lot of glaciers and volcanoes, I feel Iceland like another planet when I came here first time, The thing most impressive me was aurora dancing on the sky on new year eve, Green beams across the skyline, Although the aurora only exist ten minutes, but that ten minutes absolutely was best ten minutes of my life. After travel by myself and five months of internship experience, I find the direction of my heart, I not only grew a lot, but also get a lot of memorable memories, thank a lot to the peoples who help me in these five months, Although these days mixed with sweat and tears, But everything was worth it!
