Dear teachers and students，good morning.
It’s my great honor to be here to give a speech for the coming 18th English Festival of Lixiang School. The aim of the festival is to bring up the students’ interest in English, encourage students to speak and use English ,improve our school students’ English level. I really hope that it can enliven the campus atmosphere on English learning and enrich the students’ spare time life.
As we all know , English is the most widely used language in the world. English helps us communicate with people. We like to call English “the language of communication”. Because it seems all the people in the world have agreed to use English to talk to each other. Almost all international conferences and competitions are conducted in English, for example, the Olympic Games. Diplomats and politicians from different countries use English communicate with each other.
Furthermore, learning English well gives you a lot of satisfaction:If you learn English well, it can not only help you get better results in examinations or help you find a good high school. More importantly, making progress will make you feel great. You will enjoy learning English, if you remember that every hour you spend gets you closer to perfection. Every sentence you speak or write reminds you of your success. English makes you a more powerful, happier person. It can help you learn more about the outside world, and let the outside learn more about our country and our culture.
The English Festival of our school is held every year since 2004，it becomes a traditional campus festival in our school . The students and English teachers did quite well in the Previous English speech and retical contests of Nanshan English festival . What should be especially mentioned is that we are entitled the top reward in the English Retical Contest of 16th Nanshan English Festival based on students’ practice hard and teachers’ careful training . The 18th English Festival has stepped into our campus,. It is a stage for all of you to show your talents and ability in English. And many interesting activities will be held , such as English speech contest, English Talent contest, English Calligraphy Contest, English Dubbing Contest. All the participants began to prepare for the contests one month ago . They spend their free time practising hard so as to give us a good performance with the teachers’ guidance and training. Here ,I want to say “thanks”to both of you.
Dear students, don’t be shy, have a try! And you will be the best of yourselves. You have to know, practice makes your English perfect. Join in the activities to tell your beautiful stories in English and show yourself confidently. Stay true to the mission, let dreams set sail.
Finally, I wish our English Festival a great success.
