Hu Kunxu, 17, finds the booklet very helpful, particularly

 at the end of the semester. “The key knowledge is clearly pinpointed, and I make notes.

When the end of the semester arrives, I read it again. It is especially helpful for my exam,” she said.

Wang, the history teacher, said the document iThe Jiangsu teachers have all been given free lodgings next to the scho

ol, so they are close to their students in class and in life. The school also provides societies where the students are fre

e to develop hobbies, such as learning piano or Tibetan calligraphy.s designed to help students study independently. The

core contents still come from the textbook, but they are listed in a more straightforward way.

“Only when they form such a basis can they better absorb the knowledge comm

unicated during classes, instead of mechanically cramming knowledge into their heads.”

working well,” presidential spokesman Kim Eui-kyeom said

In Pyongyang, Biegun and Kim Hyok Chol, DPRK’s special representative for US affairs, discussed “advancing Trump and Kim’s

Singapore summit commitments of complete denuclearization, transforming US-(DPRK)

relations, and building a lasting peace on the Korean Peninsula,” the US State Department said in a statement.

Trump and Kim met for their first summit in Singapore last June, during which Kim pledged to work toward the “co

mplete denuclearization” of the Korean Peninsula, without providing a clear timetable or roadmap.

US-led diplomacy aimed at getting the DPRK to abandon its nuclear program in return for outside concessions has since made little headway.

Calling the AU a banner that unites the African countries to pursue self-renewal, Xi praised th

African countries continue to speak with a united voice on important internatio

nal and regional issues, and the international influence of the continent keeps rising,
