Before WIC, honestly I really didn’t want to do it. But, now I think it was a good experience. I had a different schedule than the others. But, during WIC I learned that if you have a positive mindset then you are able to do it. The biggest challenge was memorizing the vocabulary and taking lots of math classes. For memorizing vocabulary, I slept at 1:00~2:00 everyday trying to study 100 words into my brain. But, with the positive mindset and that this is all for my good. I just kept memorizing. I wasn’t able to overcome “Math” classes and “Math” in general. But, I think I improved in my math skills a little bit. What I can apply what I have overcame, I am able to apply it when I go back to JD. I will also be studying, so I can use my overcoming abilities and positive mindset to strive to do better. Also, I can apply this in my next semester. When I study for the SAT and next WIC. I can look back to my “last year”. And remember, how to do better. How I can improve. The main thing that I learned is that you are able to do greater if you do it “Together”
It was a Wonderful Interesting Colorful two weeks of studying.
In Wanbang School, we educate students to take 'vacation' as a continuation of a school term and call it JD (A Journey with King David). Students will be able to practice what they have learned in school to outside and gain self-leadership. Through such learning experience, they will share the joy to the people around and bring positive influence.

This time of WIC was the most intensive course comparing to previous WICs. It was a time when we are easily get excited because it’s right before winter break. So, I am thankful for that I can avoid this by an intensive course. I’ll definitely say I learned a lot. Although it as only TOEFL itself, I think I learned English in general. Beyond that, I learned how to be confidence the most. Now I am kind of getting what “English” is, and understand what I should do to improve my English. I had many barriers before WIC, for example to much “uh” in speaking section, not managing the time wisely in reading, and so on. I am happy that all of these are getting better, or still in process of improve at least. I ‘m glad I overcame these difficulties. As I mentioned, more than TOEFL, it is English that we are learning. For my next semester I’ll read more books, memories vocabulary, and involved in many activities to enhance my English skill. I ‘ll make this plan more practical and efficient.
