TICG Students Win National Honors in English Competitions 2007


 Talent International College Guangxi (TICG) Students are “Guangxi first place winners” of the “CCTV Cup” English Speaking Provincial Contest in Liuzhou, and the National English Contest for College Students (NECCS) in Nanning

     TICG continues to keep on winning top awards, this time by our student Miss JIANG Yunxia securing a fantastic first place in the “CCTV Cup” English Speaking Provincial Contest in Liuzhou, on 20th October 2007

     Jiang Yunxia whose English name is ‘Jeanne’ a native of Hunan province is surprisingly a Spanish major, but this was not a hindrance to her as she proved to the audience just how good her English speaking ability really was.

     Her dynamic performance bowled over the foreign judges who gave her the highest score of 96.46 this was an incredible result that meant she then became the number one college English Speaker in all of Guangxi province by beating 72 contestants from 36 colleges

     Jiang Yunxia with her charismatic smile, gave from the very beginning to the very end of the speech, a clear and informative performance concentrating on her pronunciation, intonation, and her body language which was magnificent. The ‘Question & Answer’ round was also a major area where Jeanne was strong. and was able to give the judges well constructed answers with total ease, coolness and professionalism.

     Her coaches Michael Brown and Zhong Min were awarded the ‘Certificate of Coaching Excellence for Top Winners’.

     “We’re absolutely over the moon” says Michael Brown “ I always believed Jeanne (Jiang Yunxia) could take first place, but I must admit that having to compete with 72 other contestants really was a daunting task. When she was given her score of 96.46 there was still 15 contestants to give their speeches, and I can tell you that the time I spent waiting to see if she could hang on to her top score was nerve racking to say the least”

      Zhong Min added, ‘this was the performance of her life. I am completely moved by the way Jiang Yunxia believed in herself and followed our advice. Her display and real effort in making a perfect speech was astonishing. I can’t describe how happy and emotional I feel to be her successful coach  

      Our other candidate from TICG, Wang Ju who’s English name is  Chrysanthemum also did a wonderful job by finishing in the top 15. Wang Ju gave a compelling performance and was especially fluent in the ‘Question & Answer’ round making no mistakes and giving the judges a reason for a good score.

      Earlier this year our excellent student Wan Li Lan (Jane) as an English Major freshman from Yulin, was awarded “The Special First Prize” in the National English Competition for College Students (NECCS) This is tough contest to win and it gave us all great pride at our college by her winning this prestegious award. Her coach was once again Michael Brown, who was awarded an Honory certificate for his training work. Michael quoted about the result by saying “Wang Li Lan is so dedicated to her English studies. She was determined to go to Nanning and take the top honors, and she didn’t let us down. Her grammar, listening and speaking skills are paramount to none, and she showed her flair for achievement by battling against freshman, sopohmores and seniors from all over the Guangxi Region. She really is an outstanding student”.

     Professor Cai Yifa, Principal of TICG said about this news “Yes, we are a new college, but the depth of our students English ability is simply amazing. I have always had the confidence in them in whatever competition they enter. This is the second time we have won First prize in a national English language contest. Our latest victory in the ‘CCTV CUP’ is all the more sweeter considering we have only been running for just over one year and have repeated our great success. We will continue to press ahead and gain more honors in the coming years. 

     I give my full praise to Jiang Yunxia and Wang Li Lan also our wonderful coaches Michael Brown and Zhong Min for their dedication and wholehearted effort in bringing honor and fame to TICG. I hope Yunxia’s and Wang’s next two years will be as amazing as their first one, and we all look forward to working with them on our future projects. Congratulations to them both! ”

2007年菲律宾圣安娜126926,菲律宾圣安娜在线学子成绩骄人 

    我院优秀学子们在两项英语大赛中表现不凡,分别荣获于南宁举行的全国大学生英语竞赛特等奖和于柳州举办的“CCTV杯英语演讲比赛”广西分赛区的第一名。请看下面的详细介绍:

我院参赛选手勇争上游,锐意进取。

2007年10月20日在“工业城市”柳州举办了“CCTV杯英语演讲大赛”广西分赛区的比赛。我院来自湖南省,就读于西班牙语专业的种子选手蒋云霞同学一举夺得第一名。这个结果出乎人们的意料,因为她是非英语专业的学生,但这也不妨碍她向观众展示她的英语演讲才能。

蒋云霞在台上的出色表演折服了担任该项赛事的外籍评委,他们不约而同地给她打了全场最高分96.46分。这个结果真令人难以置信,可她确实击败了来自区内的36所院校所选派的72名参赛选手。

在演讲席上,蒋由始至终脸上洋溢着自信的微笑,用她地道的发音,得体的身体语言清晰地向人们传递信息。在“问答”的主要环节,蒋也同样有出色表现。她从容、冷静地给评委们她建设性的答案。

在她荣获第一名后,她的两位指导老师,迈克尔·布朗与钟敏,也被授予优秀指导老师的荣誉称号。

赛后布朗先生评价说:“我们简直犹如置身于仙境中,虽然我一直以来也都认为蒋会有出色表现,但我也不得不承认,与72名选手同台竞技可真是一件令人心悬着的事,就在她当时得了96.46分的高分后,仍还有15名选手上台演讲,那时我拭目以待,看看她是否能凭她的得分笑到最后。”

钟敏老师补充道:“这是一场展示她生命精彩的比赛。我真的被她的信念与虚心受教所感动。她的激情令人眼前一亮。我对她的成绩感到很欣慰。”

与此同时,我院的另一名选手,来自英语专业2班的王菊同学也表现出色,名列前15名。此外,于年初时,另一位来自玉林市的参赛选手,英语专业的大一新生万里兰同学作为惟一一名进入全国大学生英语竞赛的决赛选手,代表学院赴南宁参赛,凭借特等奖的好成绩,演绎了“浓缩就是精华”这句俗语的含义。展望该项赛事,要赢并非易事。但万同学凭借她的综合能力一举取得好成绩,为此我院以她为豪。对于该名选手,迈克尔·布朗她的指导老师,就她所取得的成绩评价时说道:“万里兰同学很专心致志地学习英语这门语言,而参加该项比赛时,她决意要进入决赛,力争出类拔萃。最终她没有让我们失望。她凭扎实的语法、听说功底脱颖而出,超越了其他大一、大二甚至大三的选手,满誉而归。”

对于学子们的喜人成绩,院长动情地说:“虽然,我们学院是一所新办的大专院校,但我们学生的英语能力确实令人惊喜。无论他们参加何项赛事,我一直对他们抱有很大信心,而这一次比赛是我们的选手在全国性比赛中第二次获第一名的好成绩”,“对于‘CCTV’杯我们紧终的胜利得来不易,因为我们学院创建至今天只有一年多的时间,而我们却能屡获成功。我想说的是我们仍将勇往直前,在未来更创佳绩。”

我衷心地祝贺蒋云霞与万里兰俩位同学,同时也对我们的优秀指导老师迈克尔·与钟敏表示敬意,感谢他们的尽责与全心全意培养英华学子,为我院争光。另外我对蒋云霞与万里兰两位同学寄予更高期望,希望他们未来一如既往出色,也期望与他们共同致力于学院未来的发展。再一次向他们示祝贺!
