My family was admitted to Canada when I was in my first year of university and I was expected to continue my studies there. As I was very satisfied with my life in China, studying abroad did not interest me at all. I was upset that I had to leave and argued with my parents about it. However, living in Canada has had unexpected benefits in that I have learned to be more independent, rediscovered my motivation for learning, and become much more relaxed. Living in Canada has required me to become more independent. As my father has remained in China, my mother and little brother have gone back on multiple occasions. I’ve had to learn to take care of myself and manage our household. In addition, I am thinking more about my future and considering getting a part time job. It is common for Canadian-born students to work part-time, which has led me to recognize the value of gaining practical experience and earning my own money. Essentially, Canadian culture is more independent than Chinese culture. Being part of this culture is helping me to mature as a person, develop my own opinions and make my own decisions. Studying in Canada has motivated me to perform well academically. I worked hard during high school, but once I achieved the goal of being accepted to university, I lost my motivation to study. As a result, I got low marks and did poorly in my exams. However, when I started studying at Langara College in Vancouver, I knew that I needed to get a high GPA in order to transfer to university. Although it is not easy for me to study in English, the challenge has made me even more determined to do well and I am working hard to overcome the language barrier. I have recaptured my love of learning and my efforts are being rewarded. . Canadian culture has changed my personality in that I have Canadian culture is very civil and the pace of life here is much slower than the pace of life in China. People are always rushing in Chinese cities – on the streets, in the train stations, and even when eating meals in restaurants. People fight their way into the

A high-quality education system is imperative for the future of our country. Providing parents with the opportunity to choose the best environment for their children to learn and excel in is not a choice, but a moral obligation. All families should have a school choice for their children with programs such as magnet or charter schools, or voucher programs. In fact, they should be available to students regardless of income or zip code.
Public schools serve the vast majority of students and are…
Orgon's family is up in arms because Orgon and his mother have fallen under the
inﬂuence of Tartuffe, a pious fraud (and a vagrant prior to Orgon's help). Tartuffe
pretends to be pious and to speak with divine authority, and Orgon and his mother no
longer take any action without ﬁrst consulting him.
Tartuffe's antics do not fool the rest of the family or their friends; they detest him. Orgon
raises the stakes when he announces that he will marry Tartuffe to his daughter

government and the Church. Their official reason for opening was to provide First Nation children with an education and to integrate them into the Canadian society. That is what they told the public, though they later admitted that the true reasons were to remove children from the influence of their homes, families, traditions and cultures and to assimilate the children into the, “superior”, European culture. Their official reason was a perfect cover up because they could make it seem as though they…

W. Mills. Being born in Berlin, with my pride in being German, as well as being a female with my own leadership ambitions, I felt Angela Merkel was a perfect fit for me. Gaining knowledge on the leadership style from one of the most powerful and influential women in the world, while also learning the values and beliefs my country is grounded on, I find Angela Merkel to be extremely interesting leader to study.
