4. Problems We Had To Overcome

When we were planning to explore Tucheng, we were in a hurry because of this first mission. The first tour guide is very hard, but after this trip to search Tucheng tour, we also have some planning itinerary, led the experience, such as: how to do when queuing will be faster, more time-saving tips. Therefore, after the activities of the step investigation is even more darn, more fun! To explore Tucheng need convenient, time-saving transport, so we chose for a long time, do not know is to choose MRT, bus, or taxi. Finally, we selected the appropriate means of transport according to the attractions of the itinerary. The first visit to the attractions is closer, located near the school, so we chose the way of walking; the second visit is still in accordance with the attractions of the selection of transport, but because of the more distant attractions, so we asked each parent whether can provide transportation, and the third trip is the farthest, so still to ask parents to provide traffic assistance. When we were making the introduction of scenic spots, because we had a lot of sentences not fluent and everyone tried to make it the best, we were slow to write scenic spots and we were all very worried that we would not have time to publicize and promote our research results. Therefore, students use spare time, early self-study and lunch break to make, modify the introduction of attractions, to avoid delays to promotional activities, visit the mayor secretary and other activities. In the promotion outside the school, because most people do not know where is Tucheng, some people think that the problem is too difficult, cannot answer; school promotion, because the rules are not well developed, so participants have some doubts when they play. These are all the places we need to adjust again.

When encountering difficulties, we help each other. After the semester, we are getting more and more united, we have worked hard together for the entire semester, bringing us back to life. We have worked hard and struggled for a long time, although this study is very tiring, the fatigue in our hearts will disappear when we look at the fruits of our hard work. As Shelley put it - 'When winter comes, spring is far behind? ', We move out of our own free time to work on gifted classes, we also use the holiday free time has been writing, modify the introduction of attractions. Although the process is very tired, but when we see the fruitful results, all the fatigue is gone! I hope there is a chance to participate in such activities again with my classmates!
