Speech on English Camp from Dean Cao
Hi everyone, welcome to the Opening Ceremony of Online English Camp. Firstly, what I want to say is that during this prolonged vocation, all our faculty members have been working really hard. They have prepared a lot of surprises to share with you. This English Camp is one of them. We hope that you will enjoy it.
Secondly, I want to share with you some other information about how we make it happen. The third thing I would like to say is that how you are going to make it to last forever in International College.
So secondly, what I want to say is that in order to make this English Camp happen, Mrs. Guan and her team have been doing their utmost. In this long vocation they have been doing quite a lot of jobs. And they are trying to make everything possible so that we can get together online today. They have talked to the software companies; they have studied the technologies; they have worked out all the details of the plans; and they have made very feasible schedules. Above all they have invited the best English professors of our university. The three teachers, whom you are about to meet from next week on, are the best English teachers we have ever had in our university, Professor Hou Yisong, Professor Li Xiaoxia and Professor Wang Xiaoqi. They are the best English teachers I have ever known. And all these three English teachers have been the First Prize winners of the Teaching Contest of our university. Every time when the school holds the Teaching Contest for the teachers, we hold that every other year. That is to say every two years we have one teaching contest. Each time we have only one First Prize winner. So, you can see how hard it is to be the First Prize winner of our Teaching Contest of our university. You have to treasure this opportunity, and you have to take it very seriously. You are going to take part in our activities and take part in all the lectures your professors are about to give you. So, I hope you will enjoy their teaching. This is the best we can offer you in this school.
Lastly and most importantly, for the last thing I want to say is that how you are going to make it last forever. As you know this is the first time our university, also our college, is having this English Camp, if you want to benefit a lot more from the future activities of the English Camp, you are going to work harder, so that there will be more activities you are about to take in the future, and also for the students to be who are about to be a member of our International College, they will also have the opportunities in the future, so that they can share the same study opportunities with you. What you are required to do in the future study in the following five weeks is that you are going to make it and you are going to work harder. Once you have become a member of our English Camp, you are giving me your promises. You have made up your mind and you are going to work harder. You are telling me that you are going to work hard, you are going to be the best students and you are going to be the top students of our camp. So that after the study of five weeks, you are going to be better in your English capacity. And I am sure that all of you will be capable enough to fulfill all the tasks that are about to give to you.
I hope you will enjoy the amazing English trip with us during this summer vocation. And what I’d like to summarize at the end of my speech is that I hope to meet you guys on campus and I hope I can have opportunities to talk with you in English face to face. Enjoy your amazing English trip with the three English Professors. Work harder and you are going to fight for yourself, you are going to fight for your added values in the future.
