First, communication is difficult. The network is unstable at school, we can’t search information normally. Teachers organized and told the students about the content and requirements they did. Secondly, interview difficulties. On one hand having a little time, we only have time to have an interview on double cease day; on the other hand having long interview way and bad traffic, we spend much money and part of photos are collected not too full.
