This is the 18th issue of the “Voice of Haipei”. In this series, and starting from the 17th issue, our teachers and students have been and will be working together to present a selection of the following: an excerpt or the full text of a piece of well-recognized writing (literary or academic), a response to an IELTS, TOEFL, or SAT question (to give you an example of a high-scoring answer), or an original creation. We hope that by listening and appreciating, our interest in reading further or finding other pieces by the same author will be spurred and that both our teachers and our students will play a part in this. Remember, for all keen learners, lending an eager ear to the input and reading critically and analytically are effective ways to improve our communicative abilities. With sincere dedication and concerted efforts, we will be enriched, empowered, and enlightened.
This 18th production is an outcome of the concerted efforts of our teacher Mike and three first-year SISU-Waikato students: Liu Junyan, Yue Zheng'an and Qin Yitong, and a former SISU-Waikato student, Zhang Jingjing.
This issue is in two parts.
Part I is an interview. Liu Junyan and Yue Zheng'an interviewed and consulted their teacher Mike on some current and future action plans as college students. The interview took place during lunchtime on March 26, 2021. The setting was the beautiful Songjiang Campus in the full swing of spring. Qin Yitong did the filming.
Voice of Haipei 18 (Part I)
Part II is an introduction, delivered by Zhang Jingjing, a current MA student at the University of Sydney. She introduced the Waikato Student Union, and shared her experience of studying at the university. The breathtaking moving snapshots captured and video-taped by her will bring us closer to the spectacular campus of the University of Waikato.
