Is my lecture on the political history of Taiwan? Um and it looks like there's not a lot of people here in class today. You see, you have classes offered both in Mandarin and English on DH as an exchange. Don't we pretty much have access to any classes that are offered by the school? Because I'm in the direct enrollment exchange program, I can take any classes offer. Then I have a Chinese like language learning classes offered by the Office of International Corporation. Um, and I would say that most of my English cost is air like, evenly split between local time. Y Stern's and also other exchange our international students out of here in Taipei with like English classes. I have access to God classes as well, so as the undergrad I can also take. Some of the graduate classes that are offered here are really nice. If you're taking three credit course, it's three hours. So every hour like this bell, you here right now, Every hour we have a 10 minute break. So right now we're on break in my political history of Taiwan. Plus so we have, like, 10 minute break, Um, and so three credit course is three hours and you have it once a week, So that's definitely something that's new for me. Where is back home, Um, usedto having two classes a week that each like an hour and 1/2. I would say most classes here, our lecture style come parents I want used to back home, which is more discussion fazed. Most the teachers will use like a microphone and have a podium and use some sort of power point. We're gonna start class, I would say, like also here and sees you. There's a lot more like group projects, and it's a lot more like group oriented than what I'm used to back home. I think we definitely have more individual papers and power points. Um, so that's also another difference that I've noticed and most of my classes. Besides my grad class, I've had, like group presentations and also grew papers like Thiss classroom right now, five less than what you have to write a paper altogether three throughout the semester and then one final one at the end of the semester. So my Chinese class is like very strict in terms of attendance, because the Chinese classes, like, aren't just managed by their professors there, managed by our Office of International Corporation. So if you missed three classes, then you automatically fail. That's how I made my schedule because I knew I wanted to be able to, like explore Taipei on DH Taiwan on the weekends. So it's a lot easier to make that my schedule because classes are only three hours, so I have class only once a week, so I have five classes total. I'm taking Chinese political history of Taiwan history of Taiwan after World War Two, Western literature and social media and marketing, social media marketing and then the political and then history of Taiwan after World War Two are both graduate level courses. I, I would say that, like the three hour costs really isn't that challenging. I thought it was gonna be a lot harder than it wass, but because we do have the 15 minute breaks every hour and makes it a lot easier and the fact that you're only going to class once a week as well do you really enjoy my class schedule? Because it's nice fitting it all into three days and then from there being able to I have a four day weekend pretty much and be able to use that time for study and also traveling, which is something that I've never really experienced before. I would say that the class and I'm currently in right now is my is my biggest classroom on DH. There's about like 60 people in this class, but every week I think only like 60 15 to 20 come, whereas on the other classes are about 15 to 20 people. This class ends up being like smaller because a lot of people skip it because it's a 9 a.m. Andi attendances account attendance also really depends on, like the Professor. So in some classes, accounts and his strict in other classes, it's pretty lenient. Yeah, I would say that this is my biggest classroom. Other than that, they're probably around like 2022 30 students on DH. Then a lot of times people will skip sould, be smaller. My Chinese class is small and it has about like 15 students, I think.
