Learning Corners Events

两年磨一剑,今朝显锋芒!

                                                         ——恭喜IB国际高中6位同学斩获伦敦大学学院offer!


三月悄然离去,四月翩然而来,东风为我们送来了温暖,也为苏州工业园区外国语学校的IB国际高中送来了连连喜讯!截止目前,我校IB国际高中已有六名同学预录取世界排名第八的伦敦大学学院。

To the graduating students of the IB division, Spring has been a herald of good news. To date, six students have received conditional offers from University College London (UCL) which ranks eighth in the QS World University Rankings.


他们到底有哪些制胜的法宝呢?

We caught up with each of them over their secret for success.


陈博文同学从2016年进入我校IB国际高中就读,在此之前的三年美国留学经历,使他的英语能力有了很大的提升,这为他在IB课程的学习奠定了基础。刚进入IB国际高中时,他只是把学习当做任务,考前临时抱佛脚是常态,成绩平平,也从未想过会考进世界名校。通过两年的IB学习,他慢慢养成了自律和良好的时间管理能力,对课程的热爱也是他学习的最大动力,学习成绩也随之变得越来越好。他认为在美国接受的三年教育虽然奠定了他的英语基础,但是IB的学习才真正为他打开了寻求知识的大门。

When Chen Bowen enrolled in the IB International High School of SIPFLS, he had already studied in the United States for three years, which had greatly improved his English ability and laid the foundation for his studies here. When he first joined, he took learning merely as a task. It was his habit to prepare for an exam in the eleventh hour, and his grades were average. He never thought he would be admitted to a world-renowned university. After two years with the IB department, he gradually developed self-discipline and good time management skills. His passion for his course of study was his greatest motivation, and his academic performance steadily improved. He believes that although the three-year education in the US had laid the foundation for his English language, it was the IB course that ignited his thirst for knowledge.

陈博文十分喜欢运动,是国家二级运动员,在IB国际高中的运动会上也取得了跳远和跑步冠军的好成绩。他说:“虽然IB课业十分紧张,但我每天都会利用课余时间和同学们打打篮球,强健体魄的同时,也能缓解学业上的压力。”正是这样劳逸结合、行之有效的学习方式,帮助他一步一步靠近自己的梦想。

Chen Bowen likes sports very much and is a national second-level athlete. He has also won championships in long jump and running at the IB Sports and Games. He said: "Although the IB course is very stressful, I use my spare time every day to play basketball with my classmates, so that I can strengthen myself physically and this helps to relieve my academic pressure." It is the balance of working and rest that gets him closer to his dream step by step.


朱笑雨同学从初中起就在园外就读。她具有良好时间管理能力,在学习上自始至终都有着明确的目标。课堂上,她注意力集中,积极参与讨论,并认真对待每一次作业。同时,当同学们在作业上遇到疑问时,她会毫无保留地分享自己的想法。成绩优异的她这次更是拿到两个伦敦大学学院的预录取!聚沙成塔,她终于为自己交上了一份满意的答卷。

Zhu Xiaoyu has been studying in SIPFLS since junior high school. She has good time management skills and is clear about her learning goals from the beginning. In class, she was focused, participated actively in discussions, and took every assignment seriously. At the same time, she was ready to offer constructive suggestions whenever her peers sought clarification over some assignment. Her sterling tefforts have finally paid off with a double offer from UCL!

朱笑雨参加了第三届学生会的竞选,并担任秘书一职,参与组织了学校世界读书日和世界文化日等多项大型活动,并妥善安排yearbook的各项事宜,在这一过程中,她的沟通和协调能力得到了很大的锻炼和提升。朱同学也曾担任charity bazaar社团的leader, 组织社团成员们进行多次下午茶义卖,并将一学期所筹集的4000元人民币全部捐赠给云南山区的孩子,为他们解决学习与生活上的困难,献上了园外的关怀。

She campaigned successfully at the elections for the Third Students’Council and served as its Secretary. She participated in organizing many larger-scale events such as the IB World Book Day and Intercultural Day, and meticulously put together the various sections of the IB Yearbook. In the process, her communication and coordination skills have been greatly improved. She also served as the leader of the Charity Bazaar Club, and organized its members to conduct many afternoon tea bazaars, which raised a total of 4,000 rmb during the course of semester. The whole sum was donated to the children in Yunnan towards alleviating the children’s living and learning conditions.

张逸凡在10年级进入园外就读,在初中阶段,他就打下了扎实的理科学习基础,所以进入IB课程,三门HL课程他选择了数、理、化。初到园外,张逸凡英语成绩并不理想,上课也有困难,后来在同学和老师的帮助下慢慢适应了英语课堂。他在课上认真听讲,并做好笔记,遇到问题就去请教老师和同学,最终取得了不错的成绩。

Zhang Yifan has been studying in SIPFLS since the 10th grade. When he was in junior high school, he had laid a solid foundation for his own science studies. Therefore, he selected Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry as his three High-Level courses. When he first started in the IB programme, Zhang Yifan's English scores were not satisfactory and he had difficulties in class. Later, however, he gradually adapted to the English class with the help of his classmates and teachers. He listened carefully during the class and took notes. When he encountered a problem, he asked his teacher and classmates. His tenacity and diligence have paid off and he has finally achieved good results.

张逸凡同学平时会积极参加各种学术竞赛,目的不是为了得奖,而是为了学习新的知识以及积累经验。经过两年的IB学习,他的英语水平得到了很大的提升,并且自控能力也有了大幅提升。同时,他也是令父母骄傲的好孩子,在家积极承担家务践行养活教育,也耐心照顾妹妹,做妹妹的好榜样。

Zhang Yifan actively participates in various academic competitions, not to win prizes, but to learn new knowledge and accumulate experience. After two years with the IB department, his English level has been greatly improved, and his self-management ability has also been greatly improved. At the same time, he does his parents proud at home. He actively undertakes housework at home and applies what he learns from Self-reliance Education. He also takes care of his little sister and sets a good example for her.


徐云鹏同学从初中起就在园外就读,他开朗外向的性格,认真勤恳的学习做事态度,和参加各项活动表现出来的出色领导力,给老师和同学们留下了深刻的印象。徐同学热衷于经济学学科的学习,课余时间钻研股票投资并进行模拟实践。2019年3月,他参加了全美经济学挑战中国站的活动,表现优异。同年9月,他还参加了由美中经济学社和思珂教育联合举办的“全国中学生投资挑战赛”,并与我校其他2名同学一起合作,荣获“最佳团队合作”银奖。

Xu Yunpeng has been studying in SIFLS since junior high school. His cheerful and outgoing personality, earnest and diligent attitude to learning and doing things, and the outstanding leadership he has demonstrated while participating in various activities, have impressed both teachers and students. Xu is passionate about studying Economics, and enjoys exploring stock investment in his spare time and conducting simulations. In March 2019, he participated in the National Economics Challenge (NEC) in China and performed well. In September of the same year, he also participated in the "National Investment Challenge for Middle School Students" jointly organized by the US-China Economic Association and SKT Education, and with two other students from our school, won the Silver Award for “Best Teamwork”.

王允露同学在园外国际高中就读的三年中勤奋努力,积极进取,在专业的中外方教师团队的指导下,各门学科都取得了优秀的成绩,在经济学科上的进步和成长尤其突出。王同学和徐云鹏等其他两位同学一起参加了由美中经济学社和思珂教育联合举办的“全国中学生投资挑战赛“,荣获”最佳团队合作”银奖。王同学表示通过这次经历,理论联系实际,对经济数据的分析方法有了更广泛的了解和认识,同时锻炼了独立思考和与他人合作的能力。课余时间,王同学是一位烘焙小达人,她喜欢做一些漂亮精致的饼干和蛋糕分享给家人和朋友,体验生活乐趣的同时分享快乐。

Wang Yunlu worked hard and was proactive in the three years with the high school department of SIPFLS. Under the guidance of a professional team of both Chinese and foreign teachers, she achieved excellent results in each discipline, and her progress and growth are particularly outstanding in the subject of Economics. Wang Yunlu, like Xu Yunpeng, participated in the “National Investment Challenge for Middle School Students” jointly sponsored by the US-China Economic Association and SKT Education, and, together with her teammates, clinched the Silver Award for “Best Teamwork”. She said that through this experience, she developed a broader understanding of the methods for analysis of Economic data by integrating theory with practice. At the same time, it helped to train her ability to think independently and cooperate with others. In the spare time, Wang Yunlu enjoys baking, and sharing her culinary delights and the joys of life with family and friends.

史克信同学是园外的“小元老”,从建校就在园外就读,在这里度过了小学、初中、高中三个不同阶段的学习时光。在小学及初中阶段参加的如养活教育等活动,让他锻炼了自我管理能力也活跃了思维。Business Management(商务管理)是史克信最拿手的学科。BM学科需要学生将理论灵活运用于商业案例分析中,它没有一个固定的公式,难度是非常大的。但BM老师凭借她过硬的专业知识,以及多年教学经验,教会了史克信多种解题思路,纠正他的错误,帮助他在学科上取得了很大的提升。

Shi Kexin is a ‘little pioneer” of SIPFLS, having been with the school since its inception. Through primary, middle and high school, he has been participating in activities of Self-reliance Education which have improved his self-management skills and cultivated his critical thinking. Business Management remains his best subject. The  subject requires students to apply theory in a flexible manner to business case studies. Because it does not have a fixed formula, some students may find it a challenge. Ke xin is grateful for the guidance of his Business Management teacher, who drew from the wealth of her strong professional knowledge and years of teaching experience to teach him a variety of problem-solving ideas, corrected his mistakes, and helped him achieve a great improvement in the subject.


史克信说:“园外IB有着资历深厚且专业的教师团队来指导学生,如果学生在学业或生活上遇到困难,老师们总是会不遗余力地帮助我们。走出园外校园,我还是会继续努力。园外像是学生的一座桥梁,为我们连接美好的未来。”

Shi Kexin said: ‘The IB department of SIPFLS has a team of highly qualified and professional teachers. Whenever students encounter difficulties in school or life, the teachers will always be there for us, sparing no effort to help us. I will continue to work hard in the future. SIPFLS is like a bridge for students, connecting us to a better future.’

时光荏苒,三年的高中学习生活结束,通过这三年的学习,相信每个同学都收获满满。拿到录取通知书,意味着一个新的开始,前方也充满着挑战,相信同学们未来的留学道路也一定精彩!

How time flies. Three years of high school programme have culminated in these much- coveted University offers. These signal a new beginning, with fresh challenges ahead. We wish them the very best that University life has to offer and believe that their life ahead will be even more specatacular!
