Self Reflection
Overall, this has been a meaningful and memorable
project for the three of us. We have investigated into the
subject English, and have realized the power of it. By
designing our game, we have learnt some methods to
increase our interests and to master our language.

Throughout the whole working process, we learnt more
about teamwork and cooperation. Although we faced a lot
of obstacles in the process, we helped one another, and
solved several difficulties. In conclusion, this is absolutely
a fruitful project for us, and we really enjoy participating
in it.
