Study Plan

                                   

January – July 2013

                        From January to July next year, I shall follow a new curriculum and continue studying hard before entering university. The curriculum for these seven months shall mainly focus on four aspects: Enhance, Core, Oral and Writing skills, and Languages. Together, the 13 subjects of this period shall get 44.5 hours per week. A major goal for me is to finish the textbooks for my Enhance and Core subjects. I shall also maintain my language studies, on improving my listening, speaking, reading, and writing abilities. Such regular, continuous studies shall serve as an additional training phase for my advanced education in university. Simultaneously, I will continue to attend seminars and public forums, as well as to look for online lectures. These additional learning opportunities can guide my thinking in new directions.
