Finalists Announced – Chinese Bridge Speech Competition 2022

The popular Chinese Bridge speech competition is coming back. This year, in the secondary school category of Auckland’s regional final, we received nearly 80 registrations from 25 schools in Auckland, Hamilton and Whangarei. 63 of them submitted their recorded speech video.

According to the judges’ feedback, watching all the videos is a delightful experience. “The overall quality of the speeches is impressive. I see crouching tigers and hidden dragons in the Mandarin teaching and learning field in the Auckland area.”

However, making the decision is not easy. Twelve students from 11 schools have been selected as the finalists for the Auckland regional final, which will be held virtually on June 19. We congratulate the finalists and all the participants.

More news about the Chinese Bridge will be updated.
