We insist our principle
of originating and get first hand material. It is unforgettable
that we waited in cold wind for bus for an hour to go to the sites.
We have hardship, wonderful memory and longing for the future.
The activity involves literature,
history, geography, computer, art and culture. We have learned
many things that are not in the text books. We have got to know
how to collect information, marshal them and especially make interview.

due to the busy study, we had to do the work at noon break time
and weekends and sometimes we were very tired, we have a sense
of satisfaction and fulfillment.
