My life in the first term

 I am currently studying the Law Foundation program, which Bellerbys College offered, Law, Politics, English and CIT are four compulsory modules that we have to take in the first term. For law, we are currently looking at the English Legal system, on the civil and criminal procedure rules, sentencing, ways of solving disputes etc. Whereas for politics, we have learnt the UK constitution, referendums and how voting systems in the UK work. For English, we have learnt Basic English skills as well as writing argumentative essays; lastly we have worked on the Microsoft Programs including Word, Excel and PowerPoint for CIT lessons.

 The things learn from these four subjects significantly differs from each other. For example, for both law and politics, what we are learning now are things related to the real world, on how the legal system in England works, as well as is the British government working well and how the politicians and citizens view about their own country. And by having basic knowledge and the law side of our country, it makes us advantageous students over the others A-level or IB students as we now have learnt something relevant to what we are going to learn at university and have suitable amount of knowledge on it. On the other hand for English and CIT, the skills learnt are basic skills but which would be fundamental in our daily lives. Building a wide range of vocabularies and able to write with good sentence is beneficial for us in the field of studying law at university. Especially mooting, which draws my attention to a lot, requires fluent and convincing English in order to able to persuade and tackle the opponent side. Moreover for CIT, it helped us in develop worthy computing skills that keeps us up to date with the modern technology nowadays. All skills learnt from those four subjects differ, but are all valuable and advantageous to us.

 Nearly half of the term has passed, the analytical skills which I have learnt after writing essays on law has now made me become found myself as being more commonsensical and logical. The study of politics has coached me to become fight for what we want and what we deserve for. I have also learnt not to just start last minute revision before any test but should develop a habit of doing revision everyday, in order to reduce levels of stress and pressure.

  What I found most challenging in studying this foundation program is the language us in law are tougher than the Basic English we use in everyday life. Some phrases are difficult to understand as the words are stronger and the ways that they are phrased are distinctive. The only way to solve this problem is looking up those difficult terms and phrases in the dictionary or by using translators in order to make myself easier to understand. Sometimes, I will also study with my friends so that we could help each other out when we have problems in understanding the context. 

 At first when I am small, I believe that by studying law, it thought law in an interesting subject with lots of challenges, and could help to resolve disputes and obtain rights upon injustice. However, after studying the law courses, I found the related Act repetitive, clumsy and boring.

During this term, what I am most pleased about is I managed to meet a group of lovely and jaunty friends that we have lots of fun during classes and have always made my day; and being supportive whenever I need them. The teachers at school are also very helpful and caring which they are passionate in teaching, as well as they are willing to develop a good relationship with students that they say jokes and play with us everyday.

The best CIT class ever

Studying in Bellerbys is quite fun, especially when I having CIT class. My purpose to study this course is because I can learn how to use the basic program, such as word, excel and power point. It’s quite useful for my future, especially for my university works. After this course, I leant how to use more functions in the Microsoft word program, such as how to do a better power point presentation, and how to set up the flash player. But at the same time, I found out that its really hard to understand some key points, for example after u leant it, u will easy to forget how to use it later, so u have to keep practicing how to use the new functions. But other than that, I want to learn more things instead of just focusing on the Microsoft words, such as we can learn how to create a website or how to set up a computer. In every lesson, our teacher will first show us the new function, which we have to learn in the lesson, then he will give us a task and we have to finish it within the lesson. And in each course work, he will give us a grade, and that will become part of our final result. So we have to try our best to finish the course work.

Useful English Skills

The foundation English class is quite useful for me, especially my first language is not English. The reason why I am studying this course is because it can help me to improve my English level in different way, not just listening, reading, writing and speaking, the most helpful one is notes taking. It can help us to improve our notes taking skills, such as how to summarize the notes and the way to drop down the notes. Also it can help me to get a better result in IELTS, which can reach the universities request. Moreover, my English teacher is quite good, for example she always help us to solve our difficulties in English, and encourage us to read more books to learn more vocabulary. But to be honest, the class is so boring, and a lot of work to do. Such as the teacher usually gives u homework in everyday, but if no practice, then how can get improved. And the most difficult part is I have to learn a huge number of vocabularies, and I have to memorize all of them. I think my worst part of English skills is writing, because I don’t know how to write a good sentence structure and I don’t know many difficult vocabularies, so that is a skill which I have to improve and learn more.

My Foundation Course

As I am studying the law foundation course, so the main subjects that I am studying are Law, Politics, English, and IT.My purpose for studying this course is to help me prepare well for the Law study life in university, and get into a good law school. A lot of people know that study law is not a easy work, and u have to do a lot of reading by yourself in the free time, and so far I understood the basic English legal system, such as the civil procedure and the criminal procedure. But the most difficult part in studying law is the vocabularies are hard and difficult, so u has to spend a lot of time to check the dictionary and do the revise. To be honest, our law teacher is quite good, he always explain some definitions about the law vocabularies, and some key points. Also he has made his own menu for us, which can help us to get the law idea more easily.

The education system between HONG KONG and UK

The education system between

HONG KONG and UK

Hong Kong’s education system is quite different compare with UK. First of all, we have to study 6 years in primary school, then straight to the 6 years in high school. After that it will become the 4 years bachelor degree. But to be honest, studying in Hong Kong is more difficult than UK, especially the public exam in the last year of high school. The teachers in Hong Kong are usually quite conscientious, like they will spend more time to have a tutor class for you if your grade is bad. And we usually have a lot of homework, maybe around 5-6 in each day, so it’s quite overload. The student’s life style in Hong Kong is quite bored, because they usually spend half of the day at school, and after that they have to do the revision to get a better result. The class sizes in Hong Kong are quite small, like my class only have 25 students, and generally is around 25-30 students in a class, so the teachers can more take care the students. But to be honest, I like the teaching style in here more than Hong Kong, its because the students can be more developed, not just based on the academic result. Especially they won’t have too much homework and can enjoy more free time to do the things that they like

The first impression of UK

The first impression of UK

I have been here for 2 weeks already, and I still remember the first impression of the UK was cold and dark. When I got off the plane, and I saw the weather is quite dark, it seems like it will be raining, also its quite cold, around 13-15’C. But lucky that when I arrived Brighton in the afternoon, the weather was turning better, the sun came out and it was becoming warmer. My first impression of Brighton was not bad, it’s a small town but quite convenience, like there have a lot of shops and restaurants, its quite beautiful. As I am studying the law foundation, so no doubt that I will study the law continuity in the university. And my aim for this year is to get 80% in the final grade, and my target university is Durham University. As I mentioned I’ll study the law with a bachelor degree, so I’ll definitely become a lawyer after graduate.
