4. Problems We Had To Overcome

1,The students were a little nervous when they were communicating with Yu Wenxiu, maybe it was the first time to have face-to-face interview, through the teacher's guidance, we slowly adapted to the request for an interview; 2, Time is tight, the study pressure is high, and we gotta have extra lessons during weekends. 3,Lack of experience, There are problems of webpage making and social communications. The spirit is willing, but the flesh is week. Our English are not good. But the entries are requested in English by committee. We have to ask help from the teachers in Town and Talent Company.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

It is easy to make webpage but the process is hardship. If there will be a chance later, I never miss it. We believe that efforts will be fruitful. After having an interview with Yu Wenxiu, we are encouraged greatly. Our generation of students should study hard and do our part to contribute to realize china’s dream in the future. We conclude in one word that it is successful for us to be a caring person.
