Full Study List (2004 - 2012)

                        


                        It was a happy moment when I collected everything I had studied during the three study stages on this list. Looking back, I feel somewhat astonished about what I had learned and experienced from my studies. I am also content that I made my best efforts in planning and carrying out this unique study curriculum. Throughout these nine years, I thoroughly enjoyed studying all my subjects. In the process, I gained various kinds of knowledge and developed a self-learning ability. These shall definitely be a good preparation for my further academic pursuit in advanced education at university.
