開始出國的初衷就只是希望能夠把語文能力提升,長時間的課程加上實際的生活體驗,讓我得到的不僅僅只是語文能力的提升,更多的是文化與實際生活體驗所帶來的影響。這段時間,除了上課之外,因為希望可以趁著聖誕假期時間遊覽整個國家,所以也自己著手開始規畫行程。從最開始的規劃、自己找相關的旅行社、預定旅行期間所有的住宿、前往的渡輪、回程的機票或是到當地報名參加活動,所有的過程都是自己獨立完成。之所以能夠自己一手完成這些,我想是因為在上課的過程中,學校老師給的鼓勵,所以在很多需要英語溝通的地方自己都變得相對於以往有自信,然而寄宿家庭也帶給我莫大的影響,他們教我用正向的態度去面對遇到的難題。我記憶中很深刻的事情是,有幾天我因為連續幾天的雨而顯得有些煩悶,然而家庭告訴我說:如果沒有這些雨,你來到這裡就看不到這麼美麗的風景。雖然只是很簡單的幾句話,影響卻很大。
