Finally!! The Debut of My First Entry

Today is Friday 17, Oct and it is almost midnight now. This is my first entry after I’ve created this blog about 2 weeks ago. Time goes by so fast, unbelievable!!! I’ve been in the UK for more than two months but I feel like I just came here last week.

Though, I have many things to write in this blog, I haven’t done it. Because of my bad English so I have to spend a long time to write in English and I didn’t have enough time. In the first CBE pre-module week, I’ve spent most of my time in learning grid with my teammates. We worked very hard every day from about 10.00am until about 10.00pm. This made me feel very depressed. It was a first week but why we had to work hard like this. Although, I like the study style of mbe course, sometimes this style can make students feel depressed if they cannot manage their time very well. I think our group worked too hard because we want a perfect result. I do understand why Ricky did not want to worked together with us at the learning grid. He doesn’t want only to study but he wants to enjoy the other things in his life. No one should be blamed for this situation but next time we should find the suitable work plan that everybody in team agree with before we start our work.

To be honest, at the beginning, I also didn’t like this style of working. I didn’t have time to relaxing, chatting with friends, cooking, talking with my girlfriend, shopping, etc. However, I can get used to with it because our teammates are so nice. Working with my teammates rather than working alone can help me improve my English. Even though I didn’t talk very much because it quite difficult for me to express my opinion in English but I’ll try harder.

It’s almost 1.00am now. I’ve spent about an hour to write this short story. Hahaha, now everyone can see how poor my English is.

P.S. please try to understand my English!

  4. Your writing is great Wii man! But working together is about making sacrifices. You can be sure that all your team mates had to drop something they wanted to do to get together as well. Thats`s what are here for.

    I know it`s quite tempting not to study and spending sometime in this fantastic campus, enjoy England…but that`s not our main objective. Believe, if you do a nica job you might have less time to enjoy but you will enjoy much more the time you get.

    By the way, I feel anoyed myself with my english because it`s quite hard to express complex ideas in other languages. But everytime I feel like I`m not going to communcate because of that I say to myself that this is one of the things that I`m here for and I go ahead…maybe that is going to work for you as weel.

  5. Vee, I used to this namenever mind
    It’s really a late start of your blog, but once start, keep goingalthough I didn’t write for a long timehahaI don’t think your English is not goodbut it’s definitely true that we have to spend much more time in understanding and writingIt’s also hard for me
    And about group working
    if we can not manage time well, and if we cannot find someone who can well manage the time and organize the team, it’s really a waste of time and unefficiencybut if we want to be a good team member, we have to give up somethingand your group really worked very hard~ Looking forward to your guys’ presentation~~

  6. Your English is not bad at all….in fact its very nice. The first week was a learning experience for everyone. I am sure we all by now have figured better ways to do projects and allocate our time.

  8. hey Wii.
    Don’t worry, you are not alone! My english is poor as well. But you should think in differnt way, It’s them who are suffering, not you….haha. I am just kidding,never be afriad of expressing yourself.as I think it’s the best place to practice and improve your English here.We don’t have the English speaking envoronment back in our country. I think chattjing with some native speaker may help,as I found out I can sepak more fluently while chatthing with them. I mean causal topic, not EFQM topic,(becoz it’s killing me~~). And I also think confidence is important..When I feel much confident, I speak much better. Some ideas for you as we are both improving our speaking ability.
