Winning students in an English speech contest about the history of the Communist Party of China were awarded at Shanghai International Studies University on Tuesday.
The Shanghai Students Recounting CPC Historical Narratives In English SFLEP Competition was organized by the Shanghai Foreign Language Education Press and attracted more than 3,616 students from local primary, middle and high schools, as well as vocational schools and colleges who were divided into six age groups.
Mei Deming, a professor at the Shanghai International Studies University and chair of the jury, said to know about China, people must know about the CPC.
“When telling stories about China, we also have to tell stories about the CPC,” he said.
Jiang Feng, Party secretary of the university, said the competition provided students an opportunity to enhance their language and communication skills by practice.
