Jury of the NPSC 2019 Feedback

Category: Information

This event is a fantastic opportunity for students to challenge themselves on multiple levels. Firstly, public speaking is a skill that will serve you well in your career as both a student and a professional. Yet perhaps more importantly, the self-confidence you gain by participating in this kind of competition will give you a boost on a personal level. If the idea of standing up in front of a group (and speaking in a foreign language, no less!) seems scary to you, but you survive the experience (and I promise you will!), the next challenge you face will not feel so insurmountable. Lastly, this will be a chance to work intensively on your English fluency, pronunciation, intonation, and ability to think on your feet. Watch videos of other speakers, make audio or video recordings of yourself, and get feedback from friends and family. No matter how well you do in the competition, participating will make you a stronger communicator and user of English. I was so impressed by the composure, intellect, and enthusiasm of the students this year, and look forward to seeing the great things all participants in this program do in the future

Ukraine's bright future

 

 

 

It was my honor and pleasure to serve on the English Speaking Union of Ukraine's judging panel. The event was more than I could have imagined. Each speaker delivered their speeches with passion and their preparation showed. It was incredibly hard to choose a winner and each participant should be incredibly proud of the word and dedication they showed. The competition was not only about the speeches but also bringing the talented youth of Ukraine together and sharing their experiences and learning about themselves. I saw young people who put themselves in an uncomfortable situation, they adapted, and they were wonderful. I have no doubt in my mind that these young Ukrainians have bright futures ahead for themselves and speak volumes to the work of educators across the country for developing such upstanding speakers. Again, I thank the ESU for the opportunity to participate in such an inspiring and productive event, and I look forward to hearing of the successes in the future!
