第三週的週六，我跟同學們去Camp John Hay Art Park，我非常高興有人能邀請我出遊，因為第一周時我還沒認識什麼朋友，周末都是自己出門去瞎逛，在Camp John Hay Art Park我們先是在叢林中騎馬之後又去玩了叢林滑索，而這兩樣都是我第一次嘗試，在騎馬時我強烈懷疑馬伕差別待遇，因為我的馬伕只教了我一次基本操作就放我自己騎了，而其他同行女同學的馬伕卻是全路程陪伴到底。
在玩叢林滑索時他的設備跟我想像中的有些不一樣，我想像中的滑索是以重力加速度非常快速的移動，但Camp John Hay Art Park的滑索是以電力控制，雖然安全上更有保障並且可以悠哉地在高空欣賞遠處的風景但少了些許刺激感，事實上我們並沒有玩到全部種類的滑索，因為在接近結束時不幸下起了大雨，所以活動只好取消並提早回學校，不過我覺得我們已經算幸運了，畢竟碧瑤在這個季節本來就很常下雨，而我們是在剩下幾個活動時才遇到下雨。
I have never expected that the first experience to enter a club will be in abroad and in the Philippines. I haven’t been to a dancing club even when I was in university. I visited a club in Baguio with classmates and teachers in the second week after I have arrived. We drank and danced there until 2 AM but still woke up early and went to a picnic the next day. I was so impressed with the fresh air at rural area in Baguio because the air pollution problem is kind of serious downtown. The air quality in the rural area is much better because there are only a few vehicles.
I visited Camp John Hay Park with my school mates. I was glad to receive the invitation because I went out alone in the first week and finally have some friends in the second week. We have tried riding horses and zipline. It was my first time to try both activities. The horsekeeper discriminated against me compared to the females. He only taught me some basic skills then left me alone to ride the horse even if it was my first time. The horsekeepers for my female friends assisted them for the whole trip.
The zipline was different with what I expected as well. I thought it was propelled by gravity to travel from the top to the bottom, but it was controlled by electricity. More safety but less excitement. Due to the bad weather, we couldn’t try all kinds of zipline and had to go back to school earlier. We didn’t feel upset because it was the rainy season and we had so much fun already.
We went to a massage shop near our academy after taking a short rest. Other friends had enjoyed except me. I am not used to the feeling, but it was a nice experience. Compared with the massage treatment in Taiwan, it’s cheaper here but better quality in Taiwan.
我已經在WALES學習9周了。 因為學校裡有很多不同國家而來的學生，讓我有更多機會可以練習英文口語，幾乎是從早上一睜開眼睛一直到晚上關燈休息前，都是用英文來交談溝通。 在這裡也認識了從各個不同國家來學習英文的學生，就算只有九周的時間，在這的良好學習氛圍裡，透過和不同國籍的學生互相交流，我的英文口說真的有很大幅度的進步。 WALES英文學院提供各種課程來説明學生加強我們的文法、單詞和英文表達能力。
I have been studying in WALES for 9 weeks now. There are students from various nationalities in WALES that creates a positive learning atmosphere. You can improve your English, especially speaking skill at school by talking to students from different countries. In a short period of time, you can feel the improvement of your speaking level by leaps and bounds. This academy provides a variety of courses to help you enhance your grammar, vocabulary and expression.
As far as I am concerned, I chose this school because all other schools were full. I was very disappointed about the situation, but I changed my mind after I arrived in WALES and started to study. I am satisfied with the textbooks
and teachers. Based on the result of my entrance exam, my teachers chose textbooks for me which are very suitable for my level. I didn’t like the teaching method of one of my teachers, but admin granted my request and arranged another teacher for me quickly after I asked help from the Taiwanese manager. That’s one of the advantages of an academy with small a capacity. Compared to Sparta type school with a strict policy and forcing students to study, the atmosphere here is freer and less stressful. I think it is more suitable for students who want to study abroad. In this way, I can arrange my time more efficiently for studying and enjoying the life in Baguio.
在這裡的學習期間，我除了老師的指導之外，藉由跟同學用英語交流， 與同學們一起學習，進步的速度非常快！所以在這近三個月的時間裡， 我的英語水平進步很大。真的讓我很驚訝，原來自己的英語也能這麼好！
對於最後一點，我想介紹一下我最喜歡的WALES的地方便是宿舍，清潔人員每週打掃兩次我們的房間， 每天收集垃圾，提供舒適而舒適的生活 環境。 總的來說，我認為WALES是一所適合外國留學生的英語學校。如果我 有機會，我會選擇再次在WALES學習英文。
This is my 11th and last week of learning English in WALES. During the period of studying here, I have teachers’ instruction and can communicate English learning skills with my classmates so in this nearly 3 months, I have made great progress in my English level.
As for the school dining, I personally think it is quite good and balanced in nutrition. They provide 2 main dishes with 2 kinds of meat or the same but different flavors, along with fruits, and desserts every meal. Buffet is also provided every Wednesday. I was so satisfied about the school meal in WALES.
As for laundry service, the school provides 12 pieces free laundry coupons per term. One laundry coupon is equivalent to 1 kilogram of laundry which is quite enough for me and the laundry will be washed very well.
For the last part, I would like to introduce my favorite part of WALES which Is the dormitory. The cleaning staff will clean our room twice a week and collect garbage every day, providing a comfortable and cozy living environment.
In general, I think WALES is an English school good for foreign learners. If I have the opportunity, I will choose to study again in WALES.
