在刚刚结束的全省21世纪中小学生演讲比赛 中 ，来自全省各地不同年龄段的学生激烈角逐，展现了自己的英语实力。
In the 21st Century Speech Contest, students from all ages across the school competed fiercely, demonstrating their proficiency in English.
Contestants needed to prepare a two-minute speech on the given topic, quickly responded to random questions from the judges, and read given text in English. For the speech contest, this interview style like IELTS speaking is really new, but it can effectively examine the English level of the contestants.
Congratulations to FrankLiu from G1 and Mactavish Nie from AS for winning in their categories!
Nie shared that as long as the English level is up to standard, you don’t need to write the script verbatim to prepare for a speech or presentation. However, it is still necessary to design a clear logical structure and prepare several appropriate cases before you present on the stage.
If you prepared some slides, it is recommended to put key words on them as reminder. We hope that students will have great demonstrations in both class presentations and competitions.
Practice makes perfect. Students are encouraged to participate in more oral competitions in order to exercise their English skills and better adapt to international education
