Our teacher, Prof. Su-hsun Tsai, has been joining the Daffodil Project for several years. However, we are new to the project, as usual every year. In the past, it was always the first year of the graduate students in our department who planted the bulbs. This year, it is the first time that we, the senior students of the department, get involved in the project. We are curious how the project can be linked to our course, Multimedia and ELT.
