SPEECH CONTEST

 

Intercollegiate English Speech Contest

The eleventh annual English Festival Intercollegiate English Speech Contest will take place on Saturday, December 6th at 7:30 pm.
On Saturday night, four Shantou University speakers will take the stage alongside our guest speakers from the National University of Singapore, Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University, Chinese Culture University and Hanshan Normal University. These contestants are not only fiercely dedicated to the competition, but have skillfully woven their personal passions and values into their speeches that grapple with this year's theme: Our Hidden Heroes. Participants will present a 3 minute speech that expresses their opinions or experiences related to this topic.

All STU undergraduate students are welcome to participate, including senior students and students from Medical College. Please come and join us.


DEBATE CONTEST


This year is the fifth time that an intercollegiate debating competition will be held as part of the English Festival. The purpose of having a debating competition is to provide students with the opportunities to think critically and skillfully express ideas about issues that are not only important to us, but also to the world that we live in. Many STU students have taken up debate not only as a worthwhile skill to hone but also as a genuine personal passion. Following the British Parliament (BP) style, the finalist of the STU Cup and the wild card entry will now compete for the coveted crown of the Debate 2014 English Festival.


The exciting Debate Contest will take place on Sunday, December 7th at 3:00 pm at Mock Law (E102).


SINGING CONTEST


As an essential part of English Festival, the Intercollegiate Singing Contest provides a platform for students from different colleges to show their talents through the medium of English songs.
Moving ballads and rocking anthems. Surprising interludes. Enthusiastic lighting. These are just a few reasons why we are eager to welcome you all to the Singing Contest at the ELC’s English Festival.

The Contest will take place on Sunday, December 7th at 7:30 pm.

On that night, you will have the opportunity to witness the talents of finalists representing the National University of Singapore, Xi'an Jiaotong Liverpool University, Chinese Culture University, Hanshan Normal University and Shantou University. You will be impressed by not only the performers’ musical talent, but also their ability to perform in a foreign language.


English Festival 2014 - Intercollegiate Singing Contest, we are looking forward to your participation!
