Chinese Speaking Competition

Chinese Speaking Competition

Year 11 students Jordi Robertson, Chloe Lay, Dion Choong and William McClay impressed everyone in Adelaide with their effort and enthusiasm during the Chinese speaking competition. It was a big few days but they did us proud.

The national competition was hosted by the Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide. The competition program included speech, music, food and other cultural activities. It gave students an opportunity to entertain and to share their knowledge of Chinese culture and language.

Dion and William were jointly awarded the ‘Best Speech’ prize. Feedback from judges and others was that they were able to deliver their Chinese speeches without the support of notes, use gestures effectively, speak with accurate pronunciation and also on interesting and original content. Their ability to respond spontaneously to questions from judges was particularly impressive. 

The competition aims to motivate and encourage students to continue pursuing their studies of Chinese language and culture, by giving them an opportunity to demonstrate their Chinese proficiency, their general knowledge about China, and their talents in Chinese arts.
