Speaking

Yesterday was my wedding anniversary. I was planning that after work we could go out for dinner. I was spinning we will go to HengLong to buy the Bvlgari ring, eventually we just went home and look after my child’s homework. I was so upset because yesterday the midterm examination came out. Not so good result, I was so upset. I was not very strict to him, through the four years, he did a very job in his study, even though I don’t have a lot of time to look after his homework, he can always get high score during the examination. Maybe I expected too much of him. Now he’s in grade 5, maybe the examination is difficult, if I cannot help him a lot, then it will fall behind a little.

In Shanghai, they’re more focus on the art, the traditional culture, they want to develop people fully, not just focus on the score.

I was so upset because yesterday the midterm examination result was out. the result wasn’t so good, I was so upset. I was not very strict with him, through the four years, he did a very good job in his study, even though I don’t have a lot of time to look after his homework, he can always get high mark during the examination. Maybe I expected too much from him. Now he’s in grade 5, maybe the examination is getting difficult, if I cannot help him a lot, then he will fall behind with his studying a little.

In Shanghai, the schools are more focused on the art, the traditional culture, they want the students to be well-rounded, not just train them to be book smart.
