在此,Madeleine Wells老师想和大家分享的是:“请珍惜出国留学前在清华的学习时光,关注老师们的所授所教,因为我们的老师都有着丰富的经验,并且老师们在国外接受的高等教育课程体系都是将来你们将要接触到的。另外一点想要和大家分享的是:除了一般的课程,国外的大学将给你们提供丰富的课外活动,其目的旨在培养大家成为全面发展的个体,经此历练大家将来结束学习后能更好的融入社会。因此,同学们一定要充分地、尽其所能的利用这些机会。”

I am Madeleine Wells from London in the UK. I hold a bachelors degree and a Masters degree both from prominent universities in the UK. My majors were Political Economy and Law. I am also a certified TEFL instructor and have been teaching in China since 2004. I began working at Tsinghua in 2007 where I currently teach across a wide range of Social Science disciplines, in subjects aimed at preparing students for both graduate and postgraduate studies abroad. The courses are delivered through in-class work, seminar presentations, tests, quizzes, homework, and examinations.

To those who wish to study abroad I say, pay attention to what teachers in these preparation classes are saying. All of us have a wealth of experience and have gone through similar experiences in our tertiary education courses. Students also need to know that western universities offer ample opportunities for them to pursue extra curricular activities; all aimed at making them more rounded individuals who can easily integrate into society once their stint in academia ends. It is therefore in students’ interest to take advantage of, and make the most of, those opportunities.
