During this Qingming Festival Holiday, Nanjing Normal University held the 21st "FLTRP Cup" National English Debating Competition (East of China) on its Xianlin Campus. Jinghua Feng and Jie Jiang of Grade 2015 English Majors, representing Ginling College, took part in this event. Dr. Ling Yang and Mr. Haibo Wang were their tutors.
In this three-day tournament, Feng and Jiang tried hard to analyze the motion and gave strong and logical arguments with profound evidence for each round. Ultimately, after the five rounds of debate, they got 10 points in total, letting them rank 17th among 107 teams in East of China. Besides that, Feng and Jiang's Speaker Points rankings were respectively 29th among 214 debaters in total. This result gave them the admission into the FLTRP National Debating Competition this late May.
We wish all the best to Feng and Jiang for their coming national Debate Competition!
