Yuqian Zhang and Sirui Fang were chosen by their classmates as the best examples of the ASDAN Business and Enterprise Presentations and Posters.
This approach is in line with CLIL (Content and Language Integrated Learning) methodology, a new language teaching method that has been gaining traction all over the European Union over the last few years.
The competition was part of a pilot to explore how students can learn English in a practical way through the exploration of entrepreneurship.
Students were required to research an entrepreneur and a business and share their work with their classmates and panel of examiners.
This is first of a three stages process where students would eventually set up their own businesses and work as a team.
For many students, some of whom have only been learning English for a few months, this was the first time they participated in a formal presentation completely in English.
We are immensely proud of their accomplishments and will continue working to build on this first successful attempt.
