{Speech Time}

1st   Contestant: Claire Liu

C8 Speech “A Unit in a Unity"

Claire started with a true story of her in childhood. From the memory she learned about “teamwork".  As the now grown-up Claire standing here today, she shares with us the importance of “teamwork" and the relationship between “teamwork" and our “individuality".

*Sneak Peek*

“After all, ’’A Team’’ should be seen as singular. But what exactly does teamwork bring us? And what’s more, how do we go back and forth between teamwork, and our own personal traits, or sometimes we call it individuality?"


2nd  Contestant: Jason Lee 

A1 Speech “Sign Up Tonight!"

This is Jason’s 11th speech! He has finished 10 speeches so far!

Want to know where his inspirations come from? How does he view the value of a speech?

*Sneak Peek*

3rd Contestant: Danny Chang

C5 Speech “Bella Zio! My Experience in Utrecht"

“Bella Zio!" Danny begins his speech with a delightful greeting in Italian.

This summer, Danny went to Utretcht city in Holland, joining in a summer school.

There, he met lots of friends and had learned many interesting things.

It is his first time to Europe. Tonight, he is going to share his fun experience there with us.

*Sneak Peek*

“At the summer school, I joined a course named “Why We Need Bees?” The topic sounds interesting to me. And bees are important of the course! But today, unlike my many speeches before, I am not going to focus on bees. Because I spent lots of time exploring this city and making friends, I am going to share my experience during this journey."


4th Contestant: Howard Hwai

C8 Speech “Apprentice"

Howard begins with his interview with professors in NTU medical school.

It has been three years since then. Still his dream hasn’t changed: become a doctor.

What makes him wants to become a the next “史懷哲" or “懷P"?

What happens during his years in medical school?

He met a “teacher" which he admired much. Who is the “teacher"?

*Sneak Peek*

“…But besides the joke, indeed I had high expectation and ideal to become a medical student at that time. Me, as a medical student, is more like an apprentice. We learn through teacher’s mentoring. Just like what we do in NTUTM."


{Table Topics Contest}

As Chief Judge, Ivy says before the Table Topics Contest,

the contestants need to “think fast, but think before you speak!"

Now the contest begins.

The topic is: “What is your dream?"

Contestant No.1: Howard Hwai

“I want to become a doctor…That is very common in Taiwan’s education because no high school students know what they are going to do. But I think in the third year in medical school I learned something very important, is that the first thing…"


Contestant No.2: Joey Chen

Contestant No.4: Samin Ieong

{Judges Evaluation}

Let’s here from our judges’ precious words of advice! :)

What’s more, Ivy also gives us a tip! The “3 seconds" tip.

Breathe-Hold the mic-Repeat the questions

“In just 3 minutes, you can develop the Opening, Body, and Conclusion." Amazing, isn’t it?

Judge: Richard

He talks about “stage use": “Stand in the middle. Don’ t be afraid."

Also, he mentions: “Conclusion, don’t forget it."
