4. Problems We Had To Overcome

First, we are all in grade nine. With the high burden and tight time, it is a problem to finish the webpage without delaying the normal study. Every noon we all don’t go back home, we used the noon break and after school. At this time no class using the computer room. Many of us prefer to work , sometimes taking bread. It is heavy duty with the tight time. Second, the facility is less. There is only one camera in school, sometimes we need to borrow, but when it is used, we have to wait. Finally, one teacher can solve the problems by taking one from the school. Third, every year the august is the yuquanying festival. But when we decide the theme it is already September, missing the festival and experiencing. But the staff at the farmland provides some material to make up the loss of the festival. Forth, the program we can use is less. Owing to the far at the school, we can computer classes at 2006 and internet at 2008. In our primary school, there is no computer lesson, let alone at home. Our basic is nearly to zero. The only program is Office. Though, our teacher teaches us patiently. Sometimes it is difficult. But we work together to learn how to use the Dreamweaver, Photoshop with the help of the teachers. Teacher helps us when we cannot to do.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

Looking back to the tight 2 months, we experienced a lot and meet many experiences, but when we see the webpage finished, we are all satisfied with those worthwhile. We have a precious experience, not only learn many knowledge unlearned, but also the most confidence. We are all from the country and not good at the talking. With the help and encouragement of the teachers, we bravely interview the staff, grower, visitors and teaching us learn the communication. We are proud of introducing the beautiful land, making the contribution to publicize the homeland.
