Inside the classroom of Ielts Academy Center, the atmosphere was never hotter! Because the biggest English debate contest of the year – BEEPRO 2010 started with the first qualification round. 14 teams, 7 debates, with more than three hours full of energy,… they all made an exciting and professional debate show.
The contestants this year come from many different universities in Hanoi: FTU, HNU, etc., some are studying abroad but take part in BeePro while coming back home. We really appreciate your enthusiasm because that shows BeePro has made a good reputation among students. 28 contestants with different backgrounds, but they all show one thing in common: good debate skills and excellent command of English.
The topics they chose for debate this year are controversial but very close to our lives such as: street vendors – ban or not, medical experimentation on animals – for or against, should we protect Intellectual Property Law, etc. All the contestants wowed the judges with their wide knowledge, their confidence and their superb speaking skills. Mr Zack, from Ielts Academy, one of the judges, commented after the show: “I’m impressed with the quality of the contestants this year. They are very good at English and knowledgeable about the topic they chose”.
For most of the contestants, although they have done debates before, this is the first time they have debated in a contest. So when we asked, they all share a feeling of being nervous. However, they gradually got over it and really got into the show. One of the lovely girl from ZAM, a team, said: “I think BeePro is a really good stage for you to challenge yourself and to improve your English”.
That is just what we – the organizers – want to hear. We are really happy that the first round were successful and looking forward to the SECOND ROUND! Don’t you know? There is a second qualification round which take place on Sunday, 9/5/2010 and you can register RIGHT NOW!! Read Bee Pro’s Announcement for more information.
We would like to send a big THANK YOU to the judges as well as our brilliant contestants for making an interesting debate show. Thank you, EC’s friends, for supporting us.
COME AS GUEST, STAY AS FAMILY >:D<
