The 2015 Chinese Proficiency Competition for Foreign Students, themed “Better Chinese language, Better

Understanding of China” and sponsored by the International Office, was held in the Student Activity

Centre at 7 p.m., 28th April.
The competition aims to offer foreign students an opportunity to learn Chinese language and to show

their abilities and talents, and to build a platform of communication, discussion and learning for

foreign students. Through this competition, students can be encouraged with their language learning and

will have greater interest in Chinese.
After the preliminary selection, 10 contestants advanced to the finals which consisted of three parts,

namely the test for Chinese culture common sense, the talent show and the Q&A session with judges. With

outstanding Chinese language capability and deep understanding of the Chinese culture, most of the

contestants successfully passed the common sense test and the Q&A session. During the talent show,

contestants impressed the audience with their fantastic performance. The dancing Peacock Flying

Southeast by Russian contestant Niya was a perfect combination of ballet and pavane, which was really

pleasant to the eyes. The singing In My Songs by Korean student Cui Junrong was romantic and soul-

stirring. Shang Mingze, a Mongolian contestant, recited Wang Guozhen’s poem Thank you, which was quite

rich in feelings. The Guzheng Solo by Indonesian student Li Biya brought audiences sweet melody that was

full of classical elegance. Mongolian student Hao Buyang, attired as a princess of Qing Dynasty,

displayed a new dance that was created by herself. Judges made brilliant comments on the competition and

spoke highly of the contestants. Shang Mingze (from Mongolia) and Niya (from Russia) won the competition

with their strong Chinese language capability and outstanding talent show performance. The Chinese

Proficiency Competition for Foreign Students of SDUST 2015 came to a successful end with the audience

applauding widely and looking forward to the next year’s competition.
