5. Our Project Sound Bite

Today, the life gets constant improvement, science &technology gets rapid development and technology gets constant updating, so the society begins to need different people as before. If you do not work hard now, then you will be eliminated sooner or later by the society. While the society gets progress, but you are standing still, not only without self-motivation, but also without working hard, then you will become a natural obstacle to social progress. So, if do not want to become an obstacle of the society and do not want to be eliminated by the society, you should have your own advantages or make more efforts than others. If you want to have your own happy room in the future 'mental world', now you have to put your ideas into action, work hard, and lay a solid foundation for your future.

The new curriculum reform attaches great importance to social practice of students. We spent most of the time on study in high school, so we fully adjust the use of limited spare time for off-campus practice visit to fully enjoy the process of the first practice. During the first real interview of we going out of school, we learned how to use camera, scanner, communicate across Netcom by using chat tool along with the first recording and the first collecting materials. Although this is the first time to do such things, it makes us really know ourselves, develops our social practice, and enhances our confidence. Through the investigation of the local 'tea industry development', we experience the self practice process, get training of practicing real activities, and have new understanding in aspects of making websites and application of modern technical equipment. All in all, we have benefited a lot!
