4. Problems We Had To Overcome
At first, because we picked up the wrong topic, we changed the topic in the halfway. Our progress was behind schedule. After full discussed with teachers and listened to their advice, we were getting on track slowly. After working hard in the winter vacation, we finally caught up with the ideal progress. A) Co-operation division of work: at beginning, we are divided into the first grade group and second-year group; however, because of the generation gaps, we had to try hard to communicate with each other. Even though there were still guarrels between us. B) Team Communication: At the beginning, only the second year of the total response in command, but because of poor communication, so we are not feeling very good. Conduction through the three stages .Teachers told to seniors, and they conducted us .So we can pass the missions indeed. C) Technical barriers Because we do not have enough students in the group of managing documents, we can’t hand in our scripts in time. So we tried to write the article with the students of technical group.

Because the word on the textbook maybe not realistic. At first, we are not familiar with the city which we live in. Fortunately, in the field survey activities, we get closer to local people, and everything. Each of the visit, we have enhanced the experience of self and communication, resilience and reflected on the hidden meaning, which couldn’t be attained in school.
