4. Problems We Had To Overcome
The most difficult thing when we were being volunteer in Hua-Shan is meeting old people, we don't know how to chat with them or find some conversation that can make us with no ambassador, after all there's different with what we thinking, so it makes us hard to chat with them.
When we followed the Huashan’s volunteer to go to the elder’s houses to send them rice. At the beginning, we are embarrassed when we were talking to the elder. Almost were the volunteer and granny talking, and we just followed them. When we were going to next granny’s house, we ask the volunteer how to chat with the elder, and she taught us. After, we chat with the old people happily.
5. Our Project Sound Bite
This is the first touch of special topic about old person's live. From we don't know how to do it, and begin searching information, and went to visit the old people, the process had many funny things. Although we didn't know what can we talk with them, the volunteer lead us, and also know their family background and lifestyle. And we also found that two of our meat are good friends.
After the interview, we started to use the info to make the pages. Although the process had many problem, the page forming slowly. And when we finished this. We are so happy that we couldn't say anything. We spend much time making this page, so we really learned many things. This us really a good experience!
