It seems that those students stop blogging for a long time. The reasons are various: some of them are too busy with their exams, visa or flight ticket booking; some of them are too excited of the offers while some of them lost interest because they didn’t get the offer. Some of they need to enjoy the last summer in China and some of them, can’t express, just don’t like this learning approaching.
And I’ve made two significant mistakes: 1. I didn’t realize that the web speed will seriously influence their patience. 2. The blog is not the only way they can get in tough with me since we can easily talk online by msn or e-mail in CHINESE!!
What a fool I’ve been…......and so depressed about the data collecting.
*When you study in a new place, where, who and how you can get help with any academic problems will be very important. Try to explore some information before you go to Warwick:
1.Library: What you can do in library? How many books can you get and how long can you keep them? How to renew or request a book? What kind of resources you can find in library? Can you bring food and drinks in some place? Does Coventry has any library and how do get there?
2.Teachers: What can a personal tutor do and what kind of questions you can ask her/him? How can you get contact with a lecture by e-mail or phone? Do teachers have blogs and can you get any help from that?
3.Colleagues: Can you get in touch with any colleagues with the same major as you? And what advice can you get from them? (assignment? Module selection? Etc.) Do they have blogs and what can you learn from that?
4.Study opportunities out of class: Any conference? Any cooperated project with people from other university? Any speech in city center? How can you find the information about all those opportunities?
