On December 12th, 2016, the 31st NFLS Art Festival Poem Reading and Hosting Contest final was held in the theater on the 1st floor of the Comprehensive Building.22 students from different classes of different grades entered the final after the preliminary contest. The event was organized by the school Youth League Committee, who invited teachers of the Chinese Group and the teachers majoring in Broadcasting and Hosting as the judges.

The contest was divided into two parts. First part was spontaneous poem reading. The contestants got up on stage according to their number, and would be given a poem by random assignment, and 5 seconds later, they needed to read it aloud. The second part was hosting. Each contestant would have a partner according to their number and choose a program of any kind. After 5 minutes’ preparation, they got up stage and give an instruction of the program for 30 seconds. Their performance of both parts would be graded by the 3 judges. The best of them would be awarded at the end of the contest.

The event was full of fun and creativity. The organizer chose poem reading and hosting to test their pronunciation, emotion conveying, cultural background, ability of dealing with emergency, and their creativity, which aimed at building up the students’ interests in language and at the same time discovering hosts with multiple qualities.

We also saw diversity in the activity. The contestants came from different grades of both senior high and junior High. The performance of the little hosts from Junior 1 was very impressive and lovely, the junior 2 contestants also did a good job in their manner and everything, and the students from senior 1 showed a great deal of what they could do. The poems involved were of many kinds, including ones from China and foreign countries, modern and ancient, delicate and splendid, which served well to test the contestants’ competence of handling different emotions and expressions. When it came to hosting, we got to see them competing with one another by demonstrating their talents to a great extent. They tried very hard to look for the most powerful and creative expression to the point within the 5 minutes behind the curtain, and presented what they had prepared in a way that could display their best performance in 30 seconds.

The contest has seemed to be closed. However, presenting the awards does not lead to the end of the event, which was intended to build up the students of their qualities as hosts, speakers and communicators. At the same time, we are hoping that more students will be engaged in various language learning activities, and more will dare to express themselves, and love doing it.

If so, life will be a best stage.
