Subject: Friendship International Speech Contest & Table Topics Contest - 31 January 2012
Dear Friendship Members,
The annual International Speech and Table Topics Contests will be held on 31 January 2012, one week after our joyous Chinese New Year.
Thank you very much for those who have signed up to be contestants!
Personally, I think that participating in a contest is not about winning. It's the golden opportunity to practice and polish your speaking and thinking skills. It offers you the valuable experience that may transform you to be a better speaker and listener!
If you haven't sign up as a contestant, all you have to do is prepare a 5 to 7 minutes speech for the International Speech Contest. You may speak on any topic, but try not to touch on politics, sex and religion. There is a minimum qualification for the International Speech Contest - you must complete the first six speeches in the Competent Communication manual.
For the Table Topics Contest, it is similar to our regular Table Topics Session. You will be given 2 minutes to speak on an impromptu topic. As the Organising Chair, I promise that I will prepare speaker-friendly topics. So what are you waiting for? Quickly, hastily and rapidly sign up for this Table Topics Contest!
The winners will represent Friendship and proceed to our Area W3 Contest to be held on Saturday 25 February 2012. As the Organising Chair for both Friendship and Area W3 Contests, I'm still looking for role players Ballot-counter, Timer and SAA. Looking forward to your kind reply and helpful support!
An early wish of Happy Chinese New Year to you !
