How time flies! It’s so hard to believe that almost two thirds of the semester has gone by. Now thinking back about how worried I was at the beginning of the semester, it’s quite cheerful to realize that I have made it through and right now things seem to be right.
Teaching and learning style is quite different in the US than in China. Master courses are very intense and students have to be very focus and engaged, even from just the beginning. I had to spend a lot of my spare time doing research, papers, presentations, homework. It kept me very busy but I enjoyed the way it worked. I could actually learn how to study more actively and productively, not just accept things from whatever the professor gave me, but also look for the knowledge that I’m interested in knowing by myself.
I guess for most students, the busiest time of the semester has come. I hope everyone can enjoy it as much as they can while working hard for the finals, set up a good schedule for study, work and rest. Good luck!
