跟大家分享一下我在霍夫斯特拉的生活^^
在學校上課的時候,有點像是在台灣上課的感覺,差別只是台灣的老師大多都是用中文教學,而這邊當然就是都是英文了。而你在選學校的時候也要選華人少的學校,可以讓你在課間時避免說太多的中文,但是像我選的學校主要是日本人和韓國人,所以上課時很少有機會和中國人說中文,只能用英文和大家交談這絕對是好事。
出國回來後,我自己覺得最有成長的就是我們一般人最弱的聽跟說了,聽力在天天的轟炸之下,一定會漸入佳境,加上你如果有心的話,多看看電視的影集或是新聞,因為國外的電視都沒有字幕的,你就只能咬著牙努力聽,聽多了適應了那速度就會有所長進的。加上每天在學校老師會教新的東西,尤其式些生活上的用法,你有時候會發現在電視中就出現了,那你以前不懂的東西就變成懂了。
最重要的當然還是自己要出去去體驗看看,才能知道其中的感受了。只要你不要怕,勇敢的說,就算你的文法、發音再差,他們其實都會了解你想表達的意思,也會很樂意的跟你說話的~像一般語言學校第一天會有測驗分班,筆試的部分並不難,口試的話,只要你敢說不要有很離譜的差錯的話,通常分班時就可以分到滿高等級的班級了唷~不過其實我剛到的時候,什麼都不怕的亂說,一直都可以說的很順,但是當我學越多,知道越多常見的錯誤或是正確的文法時,我有時候反而會慢下來的想怎麼樣才是正確的說法,經過這樣的練習之後就越來越進步了!!

1年間語学留学をしました!
最初の3ヶ月はホームステイをして、残りの留学生活はキャンパス内の学生寮で過ごしました。
私が学生寮をお薦めする理由は、ホームステイよりもはるかに英語を使える環境だからです!
かといってホームステイが悪かったわけでもなく、英語を使える環境が少なかったわけではないです。
ファミリーも親切な方たちでしたし、毎日英語を使ってたくさん会話してくれたので!
ですが、3ヶ月ホームステイをした後、学生寮に移って、はるかに友達もたくさん出来ましたし、
スピーキング、リスニング力が伸びたと思います!
国によってアクセントが違ったりするので、その点ではリスニング力は相当鍛えられたと思います!

授業も私は、初級レベルから大学英語レベルまで勉強できるコースへ留学しました!
自分のレベルにあったクラスで勉強できるので、無理なく勉強できました^^
