4. Problems We Had To Overcome

(1)Data collection as Taole town is a remote town, cyber source is very little about its report, we can only get a little information through some very old literature and little information network. For these problems, we encountered it carefully, and I believe we will get what we want in the interview, that is it.

(2)Conditions are limited. Because the computers are needed in the entire process, but the school computer room is not opened for us in any time, so we have to collect material in the afternoon extracurricular time. We all live in the school, and there is no computer at home, so the entire schedule is delayed.

(3)The traffic problem because there is a certain distance from our home or school to the Miaomiao Lake, we need a taxi to interview, parents and teachers are worried, so we have to reduce the times of interviews, every time we go to Miaomiao Lake eco-tourism area to collect enough data as much as possible.

(4)The time problem we have class during the day time, there is no more time to communicate with the teachers, some work is not convenient, so we will communicate with the teacher after school every day.
