Basically, the Undergraduate Pathway Program in Colorado State University is a good opportunity for international students like me to prepare for potential challenges(in terms of language, academic and culture) inthe upcoming undergraduate study in CSU. To make this 9-month event meaningful and fruitful, I made this study plan as a guide for the pathway program. This plan can be categorized into three sections, as discussed below.
To improve my English language为了提高我的英语
首先，最重要的是，我会尽我所能来提高我的英语，口语和writtenones.In科罗拉多州立大学正式沟通语言是英语，这意味着讲课和辅导以英语进行，所有的E-从当局的邮件和公告都是英文的。其结果是，让学生了解和无重大困难使用英语是必不可少的。作为非母语，我在10的岁开始我的英语学习之旅然而，我目前的英语水平没有达到CSU本科学习的要求。出于这个原因，我会充分利用每一个机会来提高我的英语水平。更具体地讲，我会按时完成所有的essay和dissertation，并为所有的演讲和小组讨论做准备。Firstly and most importantly, I’ll try my best to improve my English language, both oral and writtenones.In the Colorado State University,the official communication language is English, meaning that the lectures and tutorials are conducted in English and all the e-mails and announcements from the authorities are in English. As a result, it is essential for students to understand and use English without major difficulties. As a non-native speaker, I started my English learning journey at an age of 10. However, my current English level has not met the requirement of CSU undergraduate study. For this reason, I’ll make use of every single chance to enhance my English language. More specifically, I’ll accomplish all the assignments and essays on time and prepare for all the presentations and group discussions.#p#分页标题#e#
To develop essential academic skills and abilities制定基本学术技能和能力
Besides English, academic skills and abilities are also essential for the undergraduate study. My high school study was in a typical Chinese high school, where teachers tried their best to deliver whatever they know to students and all we have to do is to follow instructions from teachers and do whatever we are told to do. This may not be a bad way for high school students who are teenagers with weak self-motivation capability. However, this does not work for undergraduate studies in US. In undergraduate studies, students have to make effective online searches for assignments, plan their own timetable and follow it without close supervision, and get useful information from e-mails and public announcements from the authorities. Therefore, I’ll try my best to establish the capability of self-motivation develop these skills and abilities during the pathway program.
To mingle with local American students and other international students与当地的美国学生和其他国际学生交流
Apart from English and academic skills, inter-personal skills are also essential for undergraduate students. Due to the huge cultural difference between China and US, cultural shock and homesick are nearly inevitable for freshmen. In addition, I spent my last 18 years with my parents in my hometown and the first few months abroad shall not be easy. Therefore, it is necessary for us to mingle with localstudents and other international students. Fortunately, the pathway program provides us with opportunities to live and learn withAmerican and other international students. Also, we may join the local communities and clubs in the university. By making friends with local students, I can get familiar with American culture and understand the way they think and talk; by making friends with otherinternational students, I can learn more about different cultures and have friends that I can share my joys and sorrows with. #p#分页标题#e#
In summary, the 9-month pathway program will never be an easy journey. Instead, I have to improve my English, develop essential academic skills and get used to American culture in such a short duration. By following this plan and keep an open mind, I believe I can spend this duration meaningful and get ready for the upcoming undergraduate study.
