Updating Metro System 12/12/2014
QingDao will be the 13th city to have a subway system of China. In China, if a city wants to build subway, it has to achieve three conditions: more than 3 million people, GDP more than 100 billion, the local financial budget more than 10 billion. Qingdao achieved them all, that’s why we are getting a subway.
There will be total 19 subway lines in Qingdao, it will cover the whole city and surrounding areas. No.3 will be the first line to operate, it will finish building in 2015 June. From the Qingdao train station to the North train station. Qingdao local government spent about 13 billion Yuan to build the train lines. The whole subway system in Qingdao will down until 2040. Since the No.3 will operate next year, the subway stations around No.3 are almost down. Wusi Square (May 4th) station will be the biggest subway station in Qingdao, it will have more than 6 lines and connect with some of the towers on HongKong road.
SongLing road also will have a station near Ocean University which will be convenient for students, parents, and employees of QISS.
People still have no idea how much will the subway pay per ride. But it probably will be 2 Yuan or 3 Yuan, basic on Beijing subway which is very affordable.
After these several years’ development, Qingdao became to one of the biggest city in China. There are more than 10 million people in Qingdao. Also, since Qingdao is the city which has the best economic in China, the percentage of how much Qingdao people have a car is higher than any city in Shandong. The heavy traffic is becoming to a serious problem of Qingdao. The subway system can ease this situation, and give Qingdao local people a more convenient method to travel around the city.

If you are not Asian, more specifically Korean, Japanese and Chinese, You have probably been wondering what this mysterious place called Academy. Almost every student in Korea goes to this place to study because Academy is where you can learn more things and get in-depth education. However, not everyone goes to academy with their own will but students are forced to go by their parents and the pressure and burden that they have to be smarter than others to succeed in life. As for Koreans, the education system of Korea is quite different with those of other countries. To be specific, students can only learn basic concepts of certain subjects in school, but the difficulty of exams is so high that students need to hire a personal tutor or go to academy to get good grades. The reason I think Korea has this kind of education system is probably that Korea can only survive in the fierce competition within the world through developing smarts.
As a result of this, students in Korea are required to have more knowledge for the sake of the future of Korea, which essentially give more burdens to students. From my experiences, I haven’t seen anyone who actually wants to go to academy with the purpose of getting better education. As one of million students who go to academy, I know this for a fact that kids don’t learn anything when they are forced to do something for excessive amount of time. Although I respect the efforts that the government’s spending, I personally believe that the average amount of time Korean students study per day should be decreased since it’s not really an effective way.

A stereotype is an idea of a particular type of person or thing. Sometimes stereotypes can be true; otherwise it can be a false idea. Majority of people have the same stereotype for a particular country.
I went out and gathered information about what students or teachers thought the stereotypical person was for Australia, New Zealand, China, Korea, Germany, America, Canada, and Denmark…
Some responses were also what I thought the stereotype was as well, other points I had never thought of being one of the trademarks for their countries.
· Corks on hat
· Rides emus
· Kangaroo boxing
· Wrestles crocodiles
· Basically lives off vegemite
· “G’day Mate!” (Uses slang for everything)
· Plays football (AFL)
· Lives in the bush
As an Australian I can say we are not like the stereotypes everyone has of us. There is no kangaroo boxing, and the only time you would see crocodile wrestling was with Steve Irwin (RIP). We own cars, and do not ride on emus (or kangaroos) to get around the country; we also live in houses and not just in the bush with our cork hats. However, Aussies do love their vegemite, and one way or another will find a way to use slang instead of proper English.
New Zealand stereotype:
· Rides sheep
· Eats kiwis (fruit) all the time
· Plays Rugby
· Everyone does the Hakka
· Kiwis keep kiwi (birds) as pets
Some are partly true, Matthew Chick agrees. New Zealanders do not ride sheep,“(they) eat them”. Kiwi birds are not kept as pets, as they are nearly extinct, and the kiwi fruit is delicious so it is eaten a fair bit. Most high schools have their own Haka, and not everyone plays rugby.
· Unhygienic; spits everywhere
· Eats kebabs and dog meat
· Organized chaotic people
· Hard-working (Genius’s)
· Kung Fu experts
Not all Chinese spit and are unhygienic, Carol Dang also said that Chinese do not eat dog meat but do eat kebabs. Because the country is overpopulated, it causes the chaos. They are not short; Carol actually thinks all the Chinese QISS students (especially the boys) are tall.
· Wears: skinny jeans and long sleeve shirts
· Spiky coloured hair
· Always eats: kimchi, kimbap, dog meat, everything
· Plastic surgery
· Do not sweat
Jay Song said this is what many Koreans are like, so the stereotypes were true. Although there can be many that do not fall into these categories.
· Wears: dirndls or lederhosen
· Super orderly people
· Eat sauerkraut
· No sense of humour
· Very punctual
A few of these stereotypes came from the Oktoberfest, the only time you would see Germans wearing dirndls or lederhosen. Punctuality and orderliness depends on whom you talk to in Germany, and Julia Kuttig says they have comedians so they must have some sort of a sense of humour. She also admits that Germans can be very loud and angry like.
· Carries guns
· Always at McDonalds
· Always eats burgers
Mr. Thomas talked about how he and his friends would usually get a burger at least once a week, but not from McDonalds. People from about fifty years ago, probably carried guns more then, than now. And Mr. Thomas also thinks that every country is egocentric.
· Wears: raccoon tail hats, plaid shirt, and jeans
· Always has maple syrup
· Drinks a lot of beer
· Ride moose through the snow
· Slow moving people
According to Phalen MacDonald, majority of the Canadian stereotype is false. Canadians are very calm, open-minded people. Who do not ride on moose, they move about in there cars instead! And the only time you would see plaid shirts and jeans was if you saw a lumberjack. Otherwise these Canadians are up to date with the latest trends. One stereotype point that was closet to being true is about Canadians and their maple syrup. They do not always have it with them, but they sure do love to eat it.
· Blonde hair, tall, and very thin (healthy)
· Sports crazy
Everything except maybe the sports crazy and eco-friendly part is true, according to Emma Brandorff Jensen.

QISS Snack Bars 11/6/2014
QISS Upper school snack bar is an inexpensive food counter where snack foods are sold. QISS Upper school snack bar is run by upper school student council member and they take turns to sell food. Each day three upper school students have to show up and report to duty. Students can buy various snacks including pies, chips, Oreo, Minutemaid juices. Student uses their 20 minute break to buy snacks and eat snacks before class. However there are several problems in the snack bar that students are concerned about.
Quick depletion of food in snack bar
Quick depletion of food in the snack bar is one of the biggest problems the snack has. After one or two weeks, there is no more food in snack bar, and students have to wait for a long time to get food again. The main reason for this situation is that student council members have to travel to Metro every time to restock the supply. In addition, one Metro run takes three hours, because they have to deliver food to the school after they bought it. Another reason is that student council members are actively participating various activities such as volleyball and band practices so they don’t have time after school. However, student council members are trying to find another way to get food more easily and quickly. They are trying to order food from Tabao (Chinese Internet Shopping Mall) or to ask souvenir shop to order food for them.
High price of snacks
Many students complain about price of snacks, because it is higher than that of other stores. However, student council members strongly argue that they only increase 1RMB for each product. Since they have to pay for 200RMB for transportation fee to go to Metro and deliver foods back to the school, they cannot lower the price. In addition, they have to run many activities including Lock in and Prom.
Limited snacks in snack bar
Upper school snack bar mainly sells chips, Oreo, Gatorade, Minutemaid juice, jelly, and pies. Many students want other snacks such as ice cream, popcorn, apple chip, cup noodle. In addition, they want some healthy snacks for students. Even though student council cannot by refrigerator for ice cream, middle school student council is planning to sell fruit juice and healthy snacks.
No snack bar closed. Back in 5 mins
Sometime students have to wait for several minutes to buy snacks, because Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Mills have to open the snack bar. Sometime Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Mills have a meeting, so they cannot open the snack bar immediately. Therefore, students want Bryan Kyung, the school president to get a pass to open the snack bar. However, Mr. Thorpe and Mr. Mills disagree with this idea, because in the past, student council had a problem by allowing council members to go in to snack bar. There were several financial problems, so teachers do not want to allow students to get a pass to snack bar. In addition, they late very rarely, so this is not a serious problem.
There are many issues in Upper School snack bar that students are concerned about. However, they are doing their best to satisfy needs of every student in QISS. Even though prices are high, they use those profits for students. In addition, they are looking for solutions to get foods more often without going to Metro. As representatives of students, they promised to improve the quality of student snack bar.
Middle School Snack Bar
At the start of the year middle school students formed their own student council to provide better environment for their peers. Before, middle student council members had to join the upper school student meeting, so they had fewer chances to show their opinions for middle school students. Now, middle school council is making positive changes to the entire school environment. The first middle school president is Grace Zhang, secretary is Jacky, and treasurer is Danny Han. Middle school student council is planning several activities to increase engagement of middle school students. In addition, their main goal is to provide healthy snacks to students, since upper school student snack bar mainly sells chips or cookies that contain a lot of sugars and salts. Since they are selling to students, prices of snacks are usually 1RMB, which is very affordable. They are going to get some more healthy foods, and they are going to sell fruit juices as soon as possible. They are going to buy fruit from cafeteria and use a juicer to make different combinations of fruit juices. They are having several customers every day and the most popular snack is the oatmeal bars.
Middle School Student Council put efforts to create fabulous haunted house for students. Unfortunately, Haunted house for Halloween is canceled, because they didn’t have enough time to prepare for it. However, they are willing to provide some fun activities for Lock in, so please give them some suggestions. Please give some more attentions to middle school student council and buy some healthy snacks for your health.

The Marvelous Five - Seniors! 11/6/2014
This year, we have a relatively small senior class than previous years. Our challenging, fast paced five seniors will soon apply for college and leave this school. Since 12th grade is one of the most influential and important groups in our school, it is valuable to know about their goals of this year.
Goals and University
According to the interview, every senior wants to go to universities in Korea, especially universities in Seoul, which are top ranked universities in Korea. Bryan Kyung, 2014-15 class president of QISS is the only senior who tries to apply in university of America. Now he is waiting for submitting application to Boston University after two or three months. In addition their goals for this year are to get good grades and good results at the end of the year. Jay Song wanted to improve his English skill and get along with other students. Cecilia, Woonhee and Queenie wanted to get good grades and go to universities that they want to go. Finally Bryan Kyung’s goal is to graduate from our school.
Each senior choose different majors for their bright future. Cecilia and Woonhee want to become teachers in the future, so they desire college of education. Queenie’s dream is to become veterinarian, so she wants to go to veterinary school. On the other hands, boys chose international trade and business majors to use their good English skills.
Seniors really satisfied with their school life. They really like familiar environment of school, so that students can easily get along with other people. However they are discontented with their small sized class. In addition, they also do not have enough time to study for college test, because teachers are assigning too much homework. They also want to improve school lunch quality, because quality is much worse than that 25RMB. They also wanted to have professional counselor to help their registrations for Korean college. Many seniors liked familiar environment of our school and facilities. However, they also disagreed with some school policy that students have to take AP test to get study hall. In addition, QISS have so many Asians to be an international school.

Zombies came back to life 11/6/2014
As the school year begins, two policies are brought to QISS that are widely criticized by the students but greatly encouraged by the teachers. What causes this phenomenon to occur? We are going to collect the responses of the students toward the technology policy and put together our conclusion.
How is it in the past?
According to our observations before summer vacation, students by that time are mostly addicted to their gadgets. Especially when all the final exams are finished, people start using their cell-phones or laptops extremely frequent on campus. The school policy last year was that students are only allowed to use technological products for academic researching or in some cases, entertaining during the break and lunch time. Nevertheless, because it was the end of the semester, teachers were becoming less strict that they often said, “Okay, I’m fine with cell-phones, just keep your volume down.” On the other hand, this action of teachers directly triggers the average time of using cell-phones to increase dramatically.
At the same time, a great number of students played games on their laptops on campus last year. They’ll get together during lunchtime and have competitions with their “karts”. It is often seen that rather than eating their lunch; students turn on their computers and entertain with an empty stomach.
*Zombies: The term describing cell-phone addicted teenagers.
How is it right now?
After the policy came out, student life undergoes great changes. They no longer have any chances to be on their gadgets; on the contrary, they are becoming more “sociable” (according to the teachers, but students doubt so). Same as the teachers, we personally think that it would be great for students to communicate more and have their own circles.
It is said that every coin has two sides, so does this policy. Even though it brings a lot of beneficial changes, it disappointed some students. According to the student body, “Restrictions of gadgets in class are acceptable… but not during lunch time or breaks. We should have the rights to use our own stuff.” Said by an anonymous student.
Since Chum Bucket is the news by students and for students, we would tilt the scale and emphasize the opinions of ourselves. We picked three people that are either always on their cell-phones or perhaps addicted to games according to their classmates. They are Bryan, Angel and Matthew from high school.
The majority of these students state that they do appreciate this policy since it helps students to become more socialized and more concentrated in classes; however, from their perspective, during free times such as the 20-minute break, students should be allowed to use their cell-phones as entertainments. They hope teachers can revise this policy by giving them a little bit of freedom. Despite this, they’re okay with not using their phones in classes.
According to the teachers, the technology policy is working well. For instance, students are interacting with one another. Teachers would argue that students are less distracted during class but the students, on the contrary, feel that they are suffering without their devices during the 20-minute break and lunchtime. It appears we are still addicted to technological products. Take me for example. In the past I could not even survive three days without my phone. I did an experiment on it last year. Also, many students are having difficulties because of this policy. Since we cannot use our electronic devices such as laptops and cell phones at school, we often decide not to bring them especially the laptops since they’re just so heavy.
Timetable of Maggie's school life before/after the policy
6:30 Wake up
7:30 Get on school bus
7:30 – 8:00 Listen to music & sleep on bus.
8:20 – 11:50 do research in class with phones & chat with people through messengers during break times.
12:00 – 12:20 Eat while holding my phone (text, games, blah-blah… Sometimes on laptops)
12:30 – 15:30 do research in class with phones; in some occasions, play games and text people by the end of each class.
15:40 – 21:30 Finish homework & academies & tutors
21:30 – 1:00 Surfing on Internet via my phone, chatting, gaming, some reading and facebooking.
6:30 Wake up
7:30 get on school bus
7:30 – 8:00 Listen to music & surf on Internet on bus
8:10 – 15:20 No technology (Half dead)
Maggie: In the past I did that experiment without using my phone for three days and it was miserable for me by that time; however, after living under this new policy for a few months, I’m becoming a master on not using my cell-phone. Why? I have to avoid lunch detentions.

English Please! 11/6/2014
Since the start of the 2014-2015 school year, all we have been hearing is constant nagging from the teachers and other QISS staff about speaking English.
Why? Because English is an important language, as Julie Yun mentioned when I interviewed her, she finds it “difficult to translate (her) Korean to English,” but Julie is willing to try because she believes it is one of the most commonly used languages around the world.
It is also important to know Chinese, Korean, German, and every other language spoken at the school.
As a native English speaker, learning Mandarin and other languages is important to my future. While I am in China, I want to take my experience of living in a different culture to the maximum. Knowing the language forces one to better understand the culture and will allow a greater appreciation for the different ways of life. Lastly, it will make me more competitive when searching for my dream job.
I noticed most students here would rather speak their native language than English. With being the new kid at school and new in China, I found it quite difficult to fit in because I could not speak the same language as nearly every student at QISS. I know I am not the only one as Tayla Maslin said she too “feels like (she) being talked about or laughed at when peers do not speak English” around her. Making her feel excluded and unaccepted. As she was telling me this, I asked her about what she thought on the policy. And we both could agree with why it is in place, and also how it would be difficult for non-native English speakers. Tayla said if she “had to speak Chinese all the time here, (she) would not be able to do it!”
I am still in the process of learning Mandarin and have been trying for a while. Before this policy was enforced I found it difficult to have a conversation with my extremely friendly peers. They did attempt to speak English for me, but we would always end in multiply mix-ups. According to my Parents they have never seen me so quiet.
Many of my peers find that learning English is essential to their lives. Speaking their native language seems more appropriate to them so it may be difficult to comply with the school’s new policy. With the understanding of this difficulty, teachers do recognize that sometimes in class, other languages do need to be spoken, in order to translate instructions. Mr. Shulist spoke about how he knows a bit of Chinese and Korean, and how he has realized that when students speak their native language, it is not always about schoolwork. Knowing this makes him more in favour of the strict policy, and he reckons that if we push through the challenges we will all see an improvement with our English over the next few months. Mr. Shulist is looking forward to a positive atmosphere of English speakers at QISS!!
I have come to my conclusion; many peers think that it is important to learn English, but they do find it difficult to speak English for the entire school day. The teachers and staff are not trying to be rude against our native languages, they are just trying to prepare us for our future!
Sayings/slang from English speaking countries:
Australia- G’day mate (Hello)
Don’t come the raw prawn with me, mate (Don’t mess with me)
Crikey (A word used when in wow or shock)
New Zealand- She’ll be right (It will be ok)
Canada- How’s it going eh? (How are you?)
And anything ending with ‘eh’
Just out fer a rip are ya bud? (Are you just out for a walk/drive?)
America- Hi yall (Hi)
Come at me bro (You want to “fight”?)
(By Tamika Blasdale)
In March I did an experiment based on whether or not I could live without cell phone, and the content of the experiment was that I was forced to live without my cell phone for three days. I had many precious observations upon it; therefore, me and the laziest member in the student news class, decided to start off another experiment: not speaking English for three days in the campus. It was, "one of the biggest challenges in my life".
How can it be challenging?
It is not difficult if we were only required to speak English in class since it is already a requirement of teachers that we have been doing; however, in spare times such as lunch and homeroom period, it is such a pain that we cannot communicate with our native classmates in native language. When it turns to English, it becomes uncomfortable.
When I started the experiment, I was quite confident since I thought it would be a easy task for me as an ok-English-speaker. However, the first second I stepped into my homeroom, I regretted. Every one of my friends were speaking Chinese to me, but I can not response in native, I had to use English words to express my feelings which was almost impossible to do so because some of my friends do not speak English very well. I started using body language in necessary situations because English seems not as efficient. When we were having a discussion during the lunch time, I was so depressed that if I spoke English, I would sound weird; if I didn't, I would feel excluded. Somehow I started understanding the feelings of others when we are speaking native but the other cannot. On the way home, I complained to my friends in Chinese and I felt extremely relaxed. Thank god, the first day was over.
Andy: To summarize my day, I would use the word "tortured". I suffered from not speaking native language to my friends and that was such a pain. I'd like to speak English in class, but not with my native friends since they sometimes make fun of me.
The second day was even more torturing because I had a language arts class. Usually, I explain things in Chinese to my classmates that they could understand what I was trying to say; however, this time I could only speak English. Only. I was almost in a desperation that my classmate does not understand what the hell I was talking about, so I used body language to illustrate. Fortunately, she understood. Then I had a Chinese class which lasted for 90 minutes, and it was quite a joy that I could express all of my thoughts. I was discovered speaking Chinese because I was asking a Chinese school mate to do me a favor without much thinking. I saw a minus-point smile of Mr. Chernock, and I felt like everything was over. Luckily he didn't mention about it afterwards, so I continued my experiment for the last day.
Andy: The second day wasn't any better than the first day. Chinese class lasted for only 90 minutes and guess what, that is not enough! Since I was supervised by Mr. Chernock somehow, I could not speak Chinese with my friends for six hours at school. When I got home, I felt depressed and gave phone calls to my friends to explain everything I wanted to say during the school.
The third day I was totally into satisfaction that after 7 hours I could speak my native language at school freely! I insisted pretty well the last day since I knew this was almost done. I had a few classes and I discussed questions with my friends in English, played a trick in a lunch time that I used notecards to communicate with my friend in Chinese, and lastly, I laughed out loud on the bus way home since I was finally out of this torture. I didn't know that this could cause this much frustration on me maybe because I was too confident, but I personally think that these three days kind of improved my ability of speaking English, despite the fact that is hard.
Andy: The last day was easier than the first two since I thought "this is finally coming to an end". When we had a discussion in LA class, I couldn't really participate in the conversation of my friends since they are mostly native Chinese speakers and they communicate in our mother tongue. I felt excluded and abandoned, and I guess this would be the feeling of a native English speaker if he was surrounded by us, talking in another language that he could not understand.
As a conclusion, not to speak your native language is not that difficult in classes since teachers ask us to speak English and express our ideas in English. However, the most difficult part is when all of your friends are speaking the same language that you can understand but you can't respond to them in your mother tongue. This is truly torturing. Another reason for why is it so hard to insist is that our English level are not as high as our native languages, so that we can not really express everything fluently as we imagined.
We interviewed two students upon their opinions to "speaking your native language." The first student, whose native language is Korean, mentioned that it would be much more convenient to speak in your mother tongue that you won't have much problem understanding. The second student who is a native English speaker, thinks that he would feel "excluded and confused" if his friends speak native language to him. He thinks that speaking English at school all the time is not only good for him to understand, but also can improve his classmates' speaking skills. As a conclusion, even though we didn't enjoy the experiment, we encourage our school mates to try to speak English as much as possible, since QISS is an international school.

From A Student’s Perspective
As an international school, the norm should be speaking English at all times when attending school. Currently, most of the students are not willing to converse with one another by using this language either because of frustration or fear of making mistakes. Thus, countless students prefer to take the easy road and speak in their mother tongue when talking with others. The upside of this decision would be free flowing conversation, but the downside should not be ignored. We, students, are required to be very proficient in English due to the fact that most of the important standardized tests are for English proficiency and we are taking part in an international, cross cultural curriculum. I was also a participant in this unacceptable behavior until recently, but after accepting the truth that my English isn’t up to par, I’ve decided to change for the better and utilize English as much as possible. I strongly encourage other students try to do this as well in order to fully take advantage of attending an international school where English is promoted and accepted.
In all schools, teachers must be respected, for better or worse, and their instructions should be followed. I’ve also become aware of the low level of participation and the lack of enthusiasm that exist among our student body. Our teachers are currently investing their own time and energy to create effective lesson plans that will assist our comprehension of various fields of study. The least we, the students, could do to reciprocate would be participate in class with a high level or energy and motivation. After all, when students are tired, exhausted, and about to fall asleep in class, teachers naturally lose the desire to educate and also become apathetic.
This is a vicious cycle that we must avoid all costs. In my mind, QISS is arguably the best internationally school that students can attend which means the study atmosphere must be conductive to studying. Although doing homework assignments and taking notes during class can feel tedious or arduous at times, we must strap our shoe laces and partake in all classes with passion. All in all, I would like to once again encourage the students to match the level of energy that our teachers have on a daily basis. We are a team and our goal is to get accepted to prestigious universities. Teachers don’t hand out good grades if students don’t deserve them. Students must first appear to be deserving of high scores by being diligent, hardworking, and preserving even in the face of challenges.
There is no I in TEAM, let’s all act in concert and make this school become a place that all students in Qingdao want to attend.
