So I decided to enter a Chinese language contest that is being held at University of South Florida in Tampa. I've been preparing for it for the past month, and am halfway prepared-- and today I found out I can't use notes or read from what I've wrote when I present the speech (Which must be five minutes long). I only have a few more sentences left to write of my speech and I still need to work on the talent portion of the contest (Mine is Chinese culture related storytelling, since the talent must be related to Chinese culture). Oh my, I still don't regret signing up for this, it seems daunting but fun. Chinese is relatively easy (Though I'm only in Chinese 1) and I can easily understand the grammar and sentence structure, but sometimes words sound similar to each other and are easy to mispronounce lol. So I'll have to work on that.
