The first Shitu Cup National College and University Student Burmese Speech Contest was held on Nov 6 at Yunnan University.
The contest was hosted by the China Non-universal Language Teaching Research Association, organized by the School of Foreign Languages at Yunnan University and co-organized by World Publishing Guangdong Corporation.
At the opening ceremony, Yunnan University vice president Hu Jinming said that to cultivate its professional language talent, the university would develop a "non-universal language +" talent training model and strive to promote the construction of its foreign language and literature disciplines.
Hu said his aspiration was that the contest would strengthen communications and cooperation between teachers and students of the Burmese language majors in colleges and universities across the country, improve the training capabilities of Burmese language professionals, and improve the oral and presentation skills of Burmese language students.
The competition was divided into five sub-groups: a college group, a second-year undergraduate group, a third-year undergraduate group, a fourth-year undergraduate group and a postgraduate group.
A total of 94 students from 19 vocational colleges and universities from across the country competed.
After fierce competition, all eight students from the School of Foreign Languages at Yunnan University won awards, including three first prizes, two second prizes, two third prizes and one excellence award.
Cun Xuetao and Pang Juncai from the Burmese Language Teaching and Research Office at Yunnan University won the best instructor award, while Li Tangying and Du Ruoyi received the instructor excellence award.
