The preliminary public speaking contest of “FLTRP Cup” for Zunyi Medical University of 2020, which consists of English-major group and non-English-major group, was successfully carried out at 6:00 pm on the 19th and 20th of October in Classroom 5 of School of Foreign Languages. The judges of the English-major group were Huang Baodan and Luorui, and the judges of the non-English-major group were associate professor Jin Jiangqin，Zhou Xue and Lu Shaohui，all of the judges are the teachers from School of Foreign Languages.
The contest has been eagerly expected. Not only English major students actively participated in the speech contest, but also the students of clinical medicine, stomatology, anesthesia and other majors in our school enthusiastically signed up. There were 38 English-major contestants and 103 non-English-major contestants. Each contestant had 2-3 minutes to give a speech entitled "Challenge to All". On the scene of the competition, the contestants gave speeches with passion, contents extended from individuals to countries, and made very wonderful speeches closely around the theme, which fully showed their own characteristics. Some players had excellent pronunciation and intonation; some had passion and persuasion and some showed the power of self-confidence. The wonderful performance of the players made the scene full of cheers. Of course, in the process of the speech, some players showed a lack of self-confidence because they were on the stage for the first time, which hindered their normal performance. Nevertheless, the teachers and students on the scene were all affected by their active participation, courage and perseverance, and gave them applause for encouragement.
此次比赛众人翘首以盼，不仅英语专业的学生积极参加此次演讲比赛，而且全校临床医学、口腔、麻醉等各专业的学生都踊跃报名。英语专业组参赛选手共38人，非英语专业组参赛选手共103人。参赛者每人有2-3分钟的演讲时间，演讲题目为"Challenge to all"。比赛现场，参赛选手演讲激情投入，从个人延伸到国家，紧紧围绕着主题进行非常精彩的演讲，充分表现出了自我的特色。有的选手拥有出色的发音、语调；有的选手拥有激情和说服力；有的选手展示了自信的力量。选手们的精彩表现令现场欢声雷动。当然，在演讲过程中，有些选手由于是首次登台，心理素质欠佳，自信心不足，影响了正常水平的发挥。尽管如此，现场师生都被他们这种积极参与、勇于拼搏的精神所感染，给予他们鼓励的掌声。
A challenge is an opportunity to prove your ability to yourself and others. It is not only a speech contest, but also a challenge to yourself. Behind the one-minute performance on stage is the ten years’ hard work off stage, which can test one's perseverance and will. Only through constant practice can we reap the final fruits of victory. Through this competition, the students have gained a lot. And we wish the students who have entered the final round to gain good results.
