 Orientation Camp

Orientation Camp

 Orientation Camp
─────────PurposeThis is a three days orientation camp for freshmen. They can easily get to know more people from the department and other departments through teams and participate in many games. Playing games can let freshmen and seniors become more familiar with each other. Usually several departments would join the same camp. In 2019, we hosted the orientation camp with the Department of Industrial Engineering and Management and the Department of Chinese Linguistics and Literature.Not only for freshmen, but seniors can also learn many skills through preparing. The orientation camp has the historical significance of inheriting the past and the future. Seniors always spend a lot of effort on preparing the camp. ContentDuring the three days, there were a series of performances and activities. The seniors would conduct a lot of drama, singing, and dance performances. There were many types of games to play together, such as group competition, RPG, and water play. From waking up until going to bed, everyone would be willing to exhaust their energy to play games. The whole team worked together to complete all the games, and their relationship will be stronger. It is said to be one of the most memorable and exciting activities. Learned from the activityFor freshmen, it is a process of having the courage to challenge themselves. In an unfamiliar environment, you need to know how to communicate and work in a team. More importantly, step out of your comfort zone to enjoy the only time in your life.For the seniors, what they can learn most is communication and teamwork. The preparation period is almost two months. During this time, there must be many arguments and frustrations. The preparation is a kind of small society. You must try your best to work with your partner and encourage each other who you just met, so you can definitely learn many skills that you might not learn in class. Reflection by the Coordinator…This is the third year we have participated in the orientation camp. During freshman year, I played as a freshman. As a sophomore, I served as a staff member to plan the games. As a junior, I served as the event general coordinator to lead the activity, so I was very familiar with all the processes. The difference is that I need to care about more things to have a good camp. When working as a staff, it is not difficult to only prepare for the event and performance. To be the leader as a junior, I learn a lot because the overall situation must be considered. When there are many people working together, there will definitely be different opinions. How to listen to everyone’s opinions, respect each other, and come up with a method that can be accepted by most people is an important lesson. Every decision must consider whether everyone can accept it, whether the funding is sufficient, how to communicate with manufacturers, and so on. When the camp finally ended, I was really happy but sad. Watching everyone learn many things and completing the big event together is very warm. After seeing everyone’s laughter and the success of the event, suddenly at that time, hard work is nothing to me. At the same time, I realized that we might have no chance to stick together or work every day in the future. Fortunately, until now, some of us still keep in touch and hang out. I am glad to have these opportunities to make my college life more colorful.   
 Winter camp

Winter camp

 YZU FL x ME 2020 Winter camp
─────────The main theme and meaning of the winter campThe goal of the camp, which was organized by the Department of Foreign Languages & Applied Linguistics and the Department of Mechanical Engineering, was for us students to learn how to lead the team, as well as how to manage their own and everyone's time, so that one is able to learn how to prepare for an event. I think that by participating in this activity, more students will learn how to care for others and how to apply what they've learned to educate children, which will help them develop their courage as well as their communication and teaching abilities.Our department hopes that during the winter vacation, more elementary school students will be able to learn English and Japanese in a fun way and that they will be able to apply what we teach in their lives or be inspired to seek knowledge. This time, organizing with the Department of Mechanical Engineering, the goal of allowing children to study not only the language (English and Japanese) but also a portion of the hand-made experimental course. The Mechanical Engineering Department and the Department of Applied Foreign Languages are two different departments. Benefits for our studentsWith the goal of happy learning, children can gain knowledge and experience in light-hearted games and course experiments. In terms of foreign languages, we hope that children are able engage in a dynamic exploration of the English world and letting them to learn Japanese quickly through Japanese songs. We have designed engaging sports courses to activate children's sports cells in order to cultivate their potential to be effective in both brainy and brawny activities.  We planned an easy and exciting hands-on experience to complete my own efforts in addition to knowledge learning.  Diversified learning, particularly the addition of science experiment courses, allows children to discover the wonders of science through simple and safe activities.  Provide additional performance opportunities, allowing them to express themselves and more confident. Teaching contentThe main activities include English and Japanese lessons, as well as hand-made and experimental tasks. There are also sports sessions and group activities outside the class. Not only can they study in class doing hands-on learning, but also go outdoors to play. This year, we held a "Japanese cultural experience" in order to expose the children to Japanese cultures. We also prepared a session to make carp streamers. Reflection by the coordinatorAfter participating in this camp, I believe the most challenging thing will be leading the children to play activities together, as children tend to have mood swings easily, whether it is good or bad.   Nonetheless, I believe it is all a process, and the most important thing is that I have experienced and learned how to lead children and comforting them when their emotions fluctuate.   
 The Night of Foreign Language

The Night of Foreign Language

 The Night of Foreign Language
─────────PurposeIn order to provide a stage for talented students to perform, we have decided to hold a night of talent performance and English drama performance. The first English Drama Performance was held in 2003, and it was a stage for many students to show their English talents. However, after 2019, due to the epidemic, the show came to an end, but you can still click on the English Drama Show link above to see the great performances of the former seniors! Although the play is no longer on, we still have a stage for you to perform on. We hope that through this night, we can give students from our departments a place to show their talents, whether it's singing, dancing, acting, or even showing off their stage charisma in front of a large audience so that they won't get stage fright.PerformancesStudents in both departments not only had dances, singings, and dramas, but also joint performances such as great choreography, as well as the anticipated total dance! It brings together talented students from all participating departments to enjoy this stage. I believe the audience will be satisfied with the results of the six months of dedicated preparation! Learning from the activityThis event breaks the tradition of the independent organization because we invite other departments to co-organize it. After learning what a suitable attitude should be used to face different people, I believe that the students participating in the performance have learned how to exchange opinions with different people. For the organizers, this night is a big challenge. To make the event more successful, we found experienced partners to co-organize it. In the process, there are often frictions. They have traditions and we have innovations. In the case of different opinions, we have been communicating, and mutual respect and timely concessions are necessary. Besides looking for lighting and sound effects manufacturers, bargaining, and renting venues. Various issues need to be dealt with. I often feel powerless and the process is stressful. Fortunately, I have a group of friends who work together.  On the day of the performance, I was nervous. I was afraid that there would be too few people, performance mistakes, and problems in lighting and sound effects. I was worried that all my efforts would be ruined, but when I saw that there were too many people and not enough seats, I was relieved. The audience’s laughter gave us the greatest feedback, and suddenly I felt that all the pains from hard work seemed to disappear, leaving only the good memories of the night.   
 Radio Taiwan International

Radio Taiwan International

 Radio Taiwan International Internship - Danica
─────────Time and trainingThe internship in Radio Taiwan International usually starts from July 1st to July 31st. The training courses are related to broadcasting, operating machines, making sound effects, and so on.  Suggest to prepareBefore starting the internship, the most important is to read more news releases first, because news English and general English use different words. It is necessary to have correct English pronunciations. Don't be afraid to speak! Watching American dramas and imitating pronunciation is also one of the preparations.  Job contentDanica participated in two programs. The first one is “Hear in Taiwan” and the second one is “Feast Meets West”. In the end, she had to create a program that she is interested in. “Hear in Taiwan” was held by 1 host with 4 to 5 guests, chatting about some interesting or special news that happened in Taiwan. They have talked about why foreign parents usually go outdoors with children while Taiwanese children usually stay at home and play on computers or cell phones. They have also talked about the different kinds of mango in Taiwan. “Feast Meets West” talks about special foods or some special cultures, such as the differences between American and Taiwanese rites of passage. Danica made bubble tea rice in this program and she recorded the sound of making the food. DifficultiesIt is stressful to record news. If you can not answer the questions immediately, it will be a bit awkward. But she got used to it after talking for a long time, and she is not so nervous. Reasons to recommendThe students who live near or in Taipei are recommended to come to this internship because the commute to RTI in Yuanshan, Taipei would be a big problem if you live in the YZU dormitory or Taoyuan. Students rarely have the opportunity to go to an English radio station or do her program, so she recommends having an internship in RTI. SuggestionDanica wants to tell everyone, ”Just express our feelings, say them out loud! Our opinion will be heard!”

 China Airline Internship
─────────Internship periodend of January to end of JulyAt least 12 working days a month, 1 working day 2 hours, divided into 6:00~8:00, 16:00~18:00 Required capabilitiesYou need to provide a TOEIC score. The academic record should be above average. First, the school will select candidates, determining whether you can participate in the next stage of the China Airlines interview. Oral expression skills must reach a certain level, with organized content and clear pronunciation because during the interview, they will ask you to make an airport announcement. Of course, self-confidence is also very important! Interview contentIntroduce yourself, read the announcement, group interview with 5 other applicants. They asked about transportation: How would I go to the airport at 6 a.m. shift, and why do I want to intern? They asked if I have any other questions. You may get extra points if you ask some questions, which means you are aggressive and care about it. Main work contentThere are self-service check-in machines to assist and guide guests. Unless other teams’ senior staff assign tasks, we mainly operate the machines. (Some people were asked to disperse the crowd, but you need to improvise yourself.)
Special experience and gainsThere was a problem with the guest’s ticket. Then I directed them to the wrong counter and was scolded by the senior staff.Many tour guides were not very kind because they are more familiar with the airport environment.I was asked if dried shrimp can be brought on board? Because it was the Dragon Boat Festival and they wanted to take it to Japan to make rice dumplings. That was so funny. Some difficultiesI once helped Eva Air's guests (not within my job scope) for almost an hour, leaving the job for a long time, so I was a bit worried.
