General Evaluator ─ Mike Yang

  • The purpose of C1 Speech is to let everyone know you better, which means you have to introduce yourself to someone who doesn’t know you.
  • What is a good or touching speech?
    A good speech needs to contain sincerity, power, and most important of all, “core value”. All of the speakers should deliver some messages in their speeches to the audience.
  • How to use the stage?
    Speakers can move around the stage to have interactions with the audience. What’s more, speakers can even ask the audience questions. Sometimes, humorous and touching stories can help catch the audience’s attention.

最後,恭喜Ann, Brownie and Vincent成為Freshman Cup第一天的前三名
