How to complete the interview and collect all the necessary information for our study within a very limited period as well as to give a good impression to Ciaotou sugar factory. We not only divided into several small groups to prepare the appropriate questions for the interview, but also rehearsed the situation that would likely to happen during the interview. We also ask for help from teacher to make the photographs and videos, and record the complete process of this activity.Second difficult we met is we have a lot of information about Ciaotou, but we felt that is not good enough to touch someone’s heart, so we set out to interview local people, let us had more story about surgar factory and it’s history.
