Cambridge ESOL announces finalists of their Best Young Speakers from Asia competition.
Nine young English language students representing different regions across Asia will battle it out in Cambridge this summer in the final of the Best Young Speaker from Asia competition.
The confirmed finalists are: Chermaine Hui (Hong Kong), Trinh Hoang Nam (Vietnam), Wei Feng (China), Sruthi Vijayachandran (India), Kyeong Eun Rhee (Korea), Yu Han Hou (Taiwan), Bong Yang (Malaysia), Sherly (Indonesia) and Minami Yamamoto (Japan)
Last year, the University of Cambridge ESOL Examinations (Cambridge ESOL) launched the competition with the aim of finding highly talented young speakers who had recently taken Cambridge English exams in Asia. The finalists will have the chance to impress judges with their public speaking skills at the event held in Cambridge on 5 July.
“All of the finalists showed a great level of spoken English ability in regional rounds earlier this year,” commented Cambridge ESOL’s Simon Wright who organised the competition. “This is really inspiring to see and I’m sure the final will be really exciting. I wish them all the best of luck.”
Two overall winners will be awarded a scholarship for an MBA in London or a Graduate Certificate in International business in Australia.
