Wang Yiyu, a third-year student from the School of Foreign Languages and Cultures (SFLC), won the third place in the 19th National English Speech Competition for College Students, held in Zhejiang Yuexiu University of Foreign Languages from August 3rd to 8th. Both his instructors, Professor Yan Zhijun and Professor Tian Zhaoxia, won the award for "Excellent Instructor".
In the first round, Wang Yiyu made a three-minute prepared speech on feminism, followed by Q&A. In the second round, Wang gave a three-minute impromptu speech on artificial intelligence and future business. Then he brilliantly responded to encyclopedic questions. The final stage was debate. Wang with the other two debaters on the provincial team presented a good performance. After several rounds of competition, Wang Yiyu ranked third in total points and won the second runner-up.
SFLC has always attached great significance to undergraduate education and considers it as the foundation of college education. Paying special attention to the cultivation of students' competitiveness and their innovation and application ability, it has witnessed a series of achievements. We look forward to better performance of students from SFLC and hope that such academic atmosphere of NNU will be further saturated. (Translated and edited by Zou Qingyi and Li Qidi)
