Students of WUIS have achieved excellent grades during the 2018 “Star of Outlook” English Talent Competition in Jiangsu Province. Among them, three outstanding primary students – Alice from the P3B class, and Karena and Yolanda from the P4C class – are going to represent WUIS and the Jiangsu province as they attend the National Final Competition in Beijing on the 8th of June!
The competition focuses not only on students’ comprehensive English ability but also on their flexibility and mentality … this in addition to how they perform overall. During the half-year preparation, students have been cooperating well with the teachers while maintaining a positive attitude towards the competition. Therefore, all the way through the competition they have learned a lot and benefited from the experience.
Our school has participated into the competition for three years. The students’ performance has increasingly improved; they show more confidence and calmness in the competition. The rapid improvement shown on the numbers and tables stands for students’ significant accumulation of knowledge and power. Meanwhile, it also shows the high English teaching quality and expertise of WUIS faculty. Without large amounts of listening and speaking exercises, along with reading practices, it might not be possible for students to think of a complete and creative story in thirty seconds after seeing the pictures … or answer an open question confidently after thirty seconds of thinking.
Every child is like a leaf of a big tree. From attending WUIS, each child is a unique leaf – fresh and green, with shining dews on it. Let’s give best wishes to all the three amazing girls who are going to attend the National Final Competition in Beijing! Hopefully, they will do their best and achieve good grades.
Finally, congratulations to WUIS for getting an award of “Excellent Organization School of the 2018 English Talent Competition in Jiangsu Province. This honor not only shows school support for students’ English study and after school activities, but also evidences how much effort that teachers have made to English teaching. Let’s work hard together and expect greatness in the coming year!
