The Provincial-Level Semifinals of 2020 National “FLTRP · ETIC Cup” English Writing, Reading, and Public Speaking Contests were held on November 7th, 2020 in Xinhua College of Sun Yat-Sen University in Dongguan, Guangdong. A total of ten SUSTech students represented SUSTech participated in the provincial-level semifinals and six of them won third-prizes in the writing and reading contests.

Four SUSTech undergraduates took part in the writing contests. They composed one expository essay and one argumentative essay within two hours. Luo Yunhao, Jiang Xinyu and Xia Zihan finally won third prizes. To prepare participant students for such writing contest, the Center for Language Education (CLE) provided a series of writing workshops targeting specific writing skills in the contest.

 

The reading contest attracted more than 200 students over 65 universities in Guangdong province. Of the four SUSTech contestants, Jia Shiyin, Xu Ruoyu and Yang Yi won third prizes in the FLTRP reading contest at the provincial level.

 

For the speaking contest, Cui Junhao and Xia Yiting participated in the speaking semifinal. Though they did not win prizes, they appreciated the great learning journey. After watching the final contest, Junhao and Yiting expressed that they had learned much from those outstanding contestants and would like to share their experience and observation with future speaking contestants from SUSTech.

 

Since July 2020, the CLE has organized the “10th Anniversary Celebration of SUSTech” English Contests & 2020 “FLTRP · ETIC Cup” English Preliminary Contests on campus and offered our students full support. Thirteen CLE instructors formed three contest preparation teams to organize three contests respectively and coach the contestants for the provincial-level semifinals. It’s the first time SUSTech students have signed up for all the three contests organized by FLTRP, and their trip to Dongguan proved to be a success. The CLE is proud of all the contestants’ hard work and performance and encourages more students to embrace such a wonderful learning opportunity in the future.
