The first round of the competition included a Chinese language and cultural knowledge test, speech and Q&Aand talent performance. Although the Chinese language and cultural knowledge test is super difficult, Anine still did a great job since her knowledge of characters is really good, and she got help from the teacher and trainee teachers from CIB. We are very glad to see that her result is much better than the result of last year.Anine answered very fluently during the Q&A part, she told the judges that she used to be very shy and introverted, but learning Chinese has brought her huge changes. In the talent performance part, Anine recited a beautiful poem“Farewell to Cambridge”, her standard pronunciation, delicate and emotional expressions won her a full applause.
