Also, I have collected about 90 English words, which can be found on Quizlet.

The targets I achieved

Oh no! I didn’t achieve all of my UK goals, but I achieved some of them. That’s OK because they are enough.

Unfortunately, there are no UK friends in my class, all of them are the summer camp friends, but it doesn’t matter.

I don’t need to expect to finish all of my goals. They are only my estimates. According to my Rules, there is no penalty for failing to achieve goals.

Item Goal Achieved
Collect at least 150 English Words 150 90
Make at least 5 UK Friends 5 0
Share my personal website to my new UK friends 1 (true) 0 (false)

I still needed to speak Chinese and be a translator

During this trip, some friends cannot speak English. So I have to speak Chinese and help them to translate using my English skills.

Please note: I used British English instead of using American English in the UK.

What will I do after I go back to China?

I will do the following things after I arrived at Guangzhou, China:

  1. Open a WeChat Public Subscription Account.
  2. Prepare for the Grade 9 Community Project (it starts on Sep. 1st, 2019).
  3. Have Chinese and Mathematics extra classes.
  4. Update my YouTube channel.
