On June 5th, 2019, Yao Shiming and Wang Xinyu, from the liberal arts intensive class of Grade 2018 of the Honors College, participated in the final of the MyET English Listening and Speaking Competition of Jiangsu Province in Jiangning Campus of China Pharmaceutical University, and won the first prize and the second prize respectively.
MyET English Listening and Speaking Competition aims to improve students' listening and speaking ability. It is held by Jiangsu University Foreign Language Teaching Association, China Pharmaceutical University and Nanjing Ding’ao Science and Technology Co., Ltd. The competition system scored students' audio sample data from multiple dimensions, combined with experts’ manual marking, and eventually selected about 100 contestants from more than 10,000 contestants in the province to enter the final competition.
"Many contestants have strong abilities, which makes me realize we should think outside the school and have a broader and longer-term vision." Yao Shiming said after the competition. According to his introduction, he has the habit of listening to English programs such as BBC World Service. This competition makes him pay attention to the pronunciation details that he did not pay attention to before, and also gives him an opportunity to further improve his oral English in practice.
According to the arrangement of the contest, the winners will be able to further participate in the East China Finals. We hope that students can performance well and achieve more excellent results!
