Explain how you responded to a problem and/or an unfamiliar situation. What did you do, what was the outcome, and what did you learn from the experience?（up to 200）
One of the hardest hurdles that I have ever overcome happened when I first came to Canada in the summer of 2018. At that time, I needed to take Social Studies10 in the summer school. Social 10, which includes history and politics, is hard for a second-language learner like me to understand, and the pace of it was so fast that I could not keep up. However, I did not feel frustrated at all but hoped to challenge myself.
In the subsequent weeks, I explored some effective learning methods: I did not understand those videos played by the teacher, so I watched them repeatedly after school until I could get the main idea. I stayed up late until midnight every day to practice but never got bored. After several days, I could understand almost all the videos even when I first watched them during class. I found my listening skills have improved rapidly.
At the end of the summer school, I got an A in Social10. Since then, I learned the importance of persistence. Furthermore, I realized how important challenging myself was that even if the process was tough, I am willing to face obstacles that make me grow.
