Intro: Introducing the classes offered by USF to students who haven;t decided their major yet. Some fundamental knowledge about economics, illustrating some misunderstanding views from some people from other majors and telling the audience the actual fact of it.
After reviewing the articles from my classmates and mine, they all indicate the difference between composing a video essay and paper essay. Jingyun and I both indicate that the video essay innovates a new way to spend informs , and also it requires various factors including visual, audio, and alphabetic text. Hao emphasized the importance of theme, and you also need to embrace your theme as well. The proper sense are required and there are several models such s linear model and retrospective structuring.
As we all known that China has a large population, Chinese students also faced a furious competition. Before they accept college education, they have to pass the “National College Entrance Exam”, also called “gaokao”.At the beginning of June, millions of Chinese high school students will take that test. According to the informations searched online, “In 2016, 9.4 million students set for that test. The attached picture as following is basically what the test will look like. Some advanced university do accept the international students such as some of them who are from another countries and are interested in Chinese culture or prefer to be specialized of it.
Lot of Chinese students think entering to a university is a liberation from a higher pressure. And lot of people trusted 60 is all they aimed to get in order to pass the class. The lack of parents supervision and self control makes some of them are less competitive when they searched for an intern job.
In the recent years, more and more parents would like to send their children to study aboard to pursue a better studying environment.
The main idea I would like to talk for my second essay is U.S immigrations, and how the “Dream Act” affected them. Especially for the children who were brought by their parents from another foreign countries, should the government support that act and gives them a better chance to accept higher level of education either ignore themselves. The article refers that college faced an issue of setup the tuition fees for those students. “If the act is passed, institutions would then be forced to adjust in a way that benefits the students and provides them with the best way to learn regardless of their socio-economic background.” As I discussed with my group members, we all agree that it is unfair for us that we don’t have rights to enter the public school as the identity of international students in the U.S. We should have privilege to compete with other students who are even not illegal immigration together, the Act states that it provides a “hope that students who were brought to America by their parents illegally would be safe from depression, given the opportunity to receive an education” The statements that the author talked are pretty close to my current case I encountered, the U.S probably should give us the same opportunity to let us compete with each other who are all participate in this “game” and people who have talents are only group of person who can promote the future development of that country.
The story is about my oversea studying experience in Singapore, and some difficulities I have to encounter with when I first get there. I listed several detailed examples to help developing that idea. I compared my past study experiences to the academic life in Singapore，a burgeoning country with several races，therefore， the language barrier confused me while I was studying there. I started to learn some slang words from their oral communication，and being suitable for a new environment. At that time，I also do some houseworks such as cleaning rooms，washing dishes，even cooking. All I haen’t done a few of times in when I was in home country. Those helps me to develop my self-help ability as well.
The personal study abroad experience I offered to audiences illustrates how it helps me to make a progress than before. And the different culture promotes me to study another language as well.Even though you can do well in diagnosed tests，you still can’te remove the their perspective that you are still a foreigner in some persons thoughts. The growth from that experience gave me not only a precious memory but also the attitudes toward the issues when you faced to.
I still remember when I heard my parents said they decided to send me study abroad, because of the higher academic pressure I had at that time, and they don’t want me to be anguished because of accumulated daily homework and multiple tests. Since our middle school is pretty popular and prestigious in the city, the students who attend to that school all have pressures when they first step into the school gate and become a member of it. In order to pursue a better academic environment and give play to my English, finally they chose Singapore as my first going aboard place. My aunt was a advanced Chinese teacher in the primary school there, so they are pretty trustingly to send me there. However the weather in Singapore is much humid and hot, the average temperature overall year in there is above 30 degrees Celsius, I can’t even sleep without an air conditioner, and people usually wear casual clothes.
Intro: why I decide to choose going abroad for study at that time, what kind of reasons urge my parents to choose Singapore instead of other countries as my first abroad studying place, what’s my personal thoughts when I heard of it?
Body: How do I feel when I first get there? What the courses difference between studying in Singapore and that in China? The problems I had when I encountered when I first came there?
Body: A perplexed decision I should make at that time, should I stay studying in Singapore or transferring to the US high school? What’ s my parents opinion about that?
Conclusion: How this experience of studying in Singapore affects me in the future studies? How it helps me to grow up quickly in a short period of time?

After looking through the essay by Yifu，I do find some similar comments from it. He agrees it’s much difficult for a foreigner to adapt and learn a new culture and language.The language barrier prevent to involve into a new circumstance. The lack of confidence might lead to their mood swing and depression not long after. An obvious racial discrimination are anothet factor whcih affect immigrations mental health. They are afraid of speaking to local people because of their accent or being a scoffer in other’s eyes.
In addition，he also refers to be proud of your identity from his personal opinion，that’s a different view after reading both of our essays. The author stresses several obstacles that we can not easily involve into a new nation. However，he stands in another angle to demonstrate that the importance of being confident for our original identities.
