海外留学来之不易,一定要充分利用好海外留学的美好时间,多学本领。我们一起来看看狮城学习和生活的最佳建议。

 

一)制定好预算和旅行计划

 

一个学期可能看起来很长,但是时间总是过得很快!新加坡有很多可看可做的地方,加上它在东南亚的地理位置,使新加坡成为探索该地区其他国家的完美基地和桥头堡。在学期开始之前,就开始研究你想在新加坡及周边地区探索的地方,并制定好相关预算。

 

二)列一个美食清单

 

在新加坡你永远不会挨饿!新加坡是一个真正的文化和美食的大熔炉,新加坡拥有12个不同的社区,每个社区都有自己特色美食。在乌宾岛吃海鲜,在小印度吃咖喱,或者在新加坡著名的小贩市场品尝所有美味的街头小吃。制定美食清单,看看有哪八大招牌菜,尽早安排时间品尝。

 

新加坡美食是最有代表性的亚洲美食之一,在世界上越来越为人称道。在新加坡,不但有中国、马来、印度三大民族各自的代表风味,还兼具日本、法国、意大利、西班牙等其他各国美食佳肴,可说是美食者的乐园。

 

新加坡是一个多种族的国家,有华人、马来人、印度人、以及西欧人等,因此在新加坡旅行,最大的乐趣就是能遍尝各国风味。新加坡作为美食者的乐园,名不虚传。在此可以品尝世界上的各种美味佳肴。中国、马来西亚、印度、印尼等亚洲各国的名菜都汇集于此;久而久之,就发展成了一种独特的亚洲美食代表。

当然,新加坡也有它纯粹土生土长的菜,这就是由长住马来西亚、新加坡的华侨,融合中国菜与马来菜所发展出来的家常菜,主要是中国菜与东南亚菜式风味的混合体,也称为娘惹(Nyonya)。娘惹更是成为了一种代表新加坡的饮食文化,因此在马来西亚也能吃到很多的娘惹菜,如甜酱猪蹄、煎猪肉片、竹笋炖猪肉等。喜食甜品的人也可以在娘惹菜中找到知音,比如由香蕉叶、椰浆、香兰叶、糯米和糖精制而成的娘惹糕。

 


三)新加坡天气炎热

 

一到新加坡,你首先会注意到的就是天气炎热。全年的气温在70华氏度左右,最高气温高大华氏90度左右。为了避暑,你还必须习惯吹空调的工作环境。从外面炎热的环境突然转到冷空调环境可能会对你的身体系统造成比较大的冲击,所以一定要多穿几层衣服,根据需要进行调整。

 

四)结交新朋友

 

新加坡管理大学(SingaporeManagement University)有大约1万名学生,但每个班级的班级规模都在45人以下。这些小班的好处是能让你真正了解你的教授,并与其他学生建立良好的联系。新加坡管理大学拥有高度国际化的校园,学生来自世界各地,所以你一定会遇到新加坡同学和其他国际学生。请别人喝杯咖啡可能会交到志同道合的朋友,开启一段终生难忘的友谊,要试着每天和一个陌生人聊天。

 

五)熟悉公共交通工具

 

新加坡的公共交通非常好。火车和公共汽车及时、高效、安全、干净。乘坐公共交通工具可以为你节省很多钱。捷运(MRT)会根据你的路线收费,所以乘坐a车的费用会有所不同,但通常在2新元左右。

 

新加坡版的优步(Uber)叫Grab,高峰时期打车,价格比较贵,所以乘坐公交或火车通常仍然是更快、更有效的选择。

 

六)为你的课程腾出时间

 

这似乎是显而易见的,毕竟,你是去国外留学的!然而,时间管理是很有挑战性的,尤其是当你来到一个陌生的国度,新加坡管理大学是一所很有名的学校,以学术成就文明世界。你进入新加坡管理大学留学的话,跟上课程很重要。花大量的时间学习,利用小班授课的优势,如果你有任何问题,可以和你的教授谈谈,保持你的成绩优异,这样你就能拿到一份令你自豪的新加坡管理大学毕业证书。

 

七)探索标志性建筑和风景

 

新加坡优越的地理位置,可以随时探访东南亚其他国家,为你的周末旅行增光添彩,但请你不要忘记,新加坡本身美景很多,何必舍近求远呢!看看当地的旅游网站,看看徒步旅行最吸引你的是什么,早睡早起身体好。

 

八)学习新加坡式英语

 

新加坡是一个讲英语的国家,但你很快就会注意到当地人使用许多独特的短语和行话,被称为Singlish。新加坡英语主要是英语,夹杂着汉语和马来语。它不是一种正式的语言,但实用于社交活动。下面是一些常见的单词:

 

pon -逃课(当然你永远不会逃课)

 

sabo -破坏的缩写

 

siao –疯狂的或失去理智的

 

在咖啡馆点咖啡的时候,有很多不同的方式可以用缩写的方式来表达你点的咖啡。例如,加糖咖啡叫kopi o,而冰咖啡叫kopipeng。

 

你也会很快注意到人们在他们的句子中加入了lah这个词。虽然它本身没有任何意义,但是出于习惯,它经常被用来强调语气。

 

当你听到一个新单词或不明白某事时,一定要多问你周围的人!

Check out local websites to see what walking toursappeal most to you and try to wake up early every once in a while to explore anew part of town.

 

LEARN SINGLISH

ThoughSingaporeis an English-speakinglocation, you will quickly notice locals use a number of unique phrases andlingo known as Singlish. Singlish is mainly English, with a mix of Chinese andMalay words added in. It isn’t a formal language, but used socially. Here are asome words to get you started:
