The first lesson - Leave the Comfort Environment
students' first lesson of leaving the comfort environment was taking
the experience card, walking into a strange classroom, and saying hello
to the teachers whom they have never seen before. However, Ma Xiaoyu
from Zhonghai No.1 Experimental Primary School said: "I made a good
friend quickly. She helped me to translate when I could not understand,
and helped me to arrange the seats and finish the assignments. I was
very happy to have a good friend here!"
Lesson two - I Am Confused by the Teaching Language
I do not understand this question." - It's a question that almost every
experienced student has raised! It is a real challenge for most Chinese
students, as the official language of CAIS is English and all subjects
(except Chinese) are taught in English. Most students from other primary
schools need 3-6 months to adapt to our English teaching environment.
Lesson Three - What? I have to do it all by myself?
3 student Zhang Jiayi from Luyuan Primary School told us: "There are
many kinds of disasters in this world. The teacher asked our team to
discuss and then make a report of tsunami before the end of the class.
Therefore, I was using the iPad to search the information about tsunami.
I found that I had a lot of things to write, but in order to follow the
teacher’s fixed format, I had to summarize." He never took his eyes off
the Tsunami article, even though the camera was clicking at
Lesson 4 - Of Course, I Want to Stay Here to Study
are gratified that we have collected more than 30 questionaires showing
that the students like the teaching atmosphere. They made many new
friends and enjoyed the different learning experiences. At the end of
the lessons, they gave sincere farewells to their teachers and their
classmates without nervousness!
a psychological point of view, having sustained drive is a very
valuable thing for students and it is a kind of interest and curiosity
about knowledge, but the internal drive will be weakened with the
passage of time. So how it is that the students who have undergone IB
education still maintain their energetic pursuit of knowledge, and still
continue to aim hard work?
1968, IB Education has defined its goal of "becoming a proactive
lifelong learner ..." IB has made the most of internal drive by
stimulating students' curiosity and cultivating good habits and
attitudes. When reflection becomes a learning habit and the critical
thinking mode has gone deep into every step of the learning process, you
will be surprised to find that even though the student's side is no
longer taught by the teacher, he still has a strongly and curiosity
feeling of concentration to explore this world!
to all the students and parents, thanks to all the teachers, we hope
all students who has participated our Winter Intake can maintain their
intellectual curiosity to face the challenges of the future! In April
2018, CAIS will hold an Open House again. Students can have an
experience of the IB course by themselves. Please pay attention to the
application information posted by the CAIS official WeChat account in
