The sixteenth annual English Festival Intercollegiate English Speech Contest took place on Saturday, December 8th at 7:30 pm.

On Saturday night, four Shantou University speakerstook the stage alongside our guest speakers from Shanghai International Studies University,Chinese Culture University, National Chengchi University, Kyoto Sangyo University and Macau University of Science and Technology. The contestants were not only fiercely dedicated to the competition, but also skillfully wove their personal passions and values into their speeches that grappled with this year's theme: TheWorld ofUncertainty.Participants presented a three-minute speech that expressed their opinions or experiences related to this topic.




This year marked the tenth time that an intercollegiate debate competition was held as part of English Festival. The exciting contest took place on Sunday, December 7th at 3:00 pm at Mock Law Court (EJ102).

The purpose of the debate competition is to provide students with 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 competed for the coveted crown of the English Festival 2018 Debate.






As an essential part of English Festival, the Intercollegiate Singing Contest provides a platform for students from different institutions to show their talents through the medium of English songs.With moving ballads and rocking anthems, surprising interludes and remarkable lighting, theexciting Singing Contest of the ELC’s English Festival took place on Sunday, December 9th at 7:30 pm.

Spectators had the opportunity to witness the talents of finalists representingShanghai International Studies University,Chinese Culture University, National Chengchi University, Kyoto Sangyo University, Macau University of Science and Technologyand Shantou University. All were impressed not only by the performers’ musical talent, but also by their ability to perform in a second language.
