Reflections and Advice:

1.) What do you think makes your school unique relative to other boarding schools?
Our school is a Foreign language University with many exchange programs. There are many international students, and the language environment for foreign language training is very good. The teachers are highly qualified.
2.) What was the best thing that happened to you in boarding school?
In the process of applying for the school, I did it all by myself. During the process of sorting out and printing all kinds of materials and contacting the school, I practiced myself. Deal with things alone at school, without the help of parents, become more independent.
3.) What might you have done differently during your boarding school experience?
Have faith in your ability to handle everything. Don't be afraid to ask for help.
4.) What did you like most about your school?
I like to go to school with my roommates every day, have meals together, borrow books from the library, eat snacks in the evening, and walk on the beach. I enjoy every day in school.
5.) Do you have any final words of wisdom for visiting or incoming students to your school?
I like swimming, but our school's swimming pool has not been built. But the school gym is worth a visit. It's big and full of sports equipment.

The dormitory is a four-person room and is well decorated. Every night the lights go out at eleven o'clock sharp. This helps us adjust our schedule.
