Our school's Internet access through a computer as ADSL proxy server, other computers access the Internet through a proxy service, so the Internet speed is very slow, we have to wait for a long time to download the material. Our schedule is very tight. Teachers will go for classes everyday, and they are also very busy, in order to catch up our classes, we have to learn on time every day according to the schedule, so will do our work at noon and extra-curricular activities time, but the time is limited, we have to work on weekends. The obstacles to make webpage, it is very difficult for us to make it, because we are not very familiar with software, so the teacher taught us some skills in their spare time. English level problem, our English level is not high, so, we can only resort town and talent teachers. Here, thanks to them.
