Public Speaking (Cantonese) Activity 2019
The Chinese Department and the Civic Education Committee jointly organised a public speaking (Cantonese) activity on 3 May to develop students’ multiple and critical thinking skills. Mr Wong Man-lung, a member of the Chinese Debating Team of The Baptist University of Hong Kong, was recruited to help train students with public speaking skills. Speakers learnt the skills to speak persuasively and constructively. They also learnt how to use different tones and body gestures to catch the attention of the audience. This activity provided an opportunity for speakers to improve their speaking skills and explore different social issues to develop their topics such as the meanings of life, discrimination in society, the courage to make changes and the importance of family and social ties. Students could also learn by observing how speakers make impressive public speeches.
