(2)?We faced with a lot of difficulties on collecting material and making web page. We had to visit and interview for collecting firsthand materials. (3)?Time limited, because of the late of school opening date, it was too late for registration. We had to use noon relaxation time to take picture, took use of weekend to visit and interview.

(4)?Our adviser was busy with taking over class for absent teachers, he was very hard. And for that we thank him.

5. Our Project Sound Bite

The web page making was simple but quite difficult. If there are opportunities in the future we shouldn't pass up. We believe no pains, no gains. Studying manners of the students should be changed; cooperative and inquiry learning make students realize the pleasure of learning. Learning more knowledge and developing more skills and abilities, students must be taught to love homeland, love country and love nature.
