[Press Release] The Korean Cultural Center in the Philippines will be holding its first metro-wide Korean Speech Contest to provide an avenue for the Korean language learners to exercise their knowledge on the said language. This will also be a gauge on how much the language learners understand the cultural nuances embedded in the Korean language.
The contestants will be delivering their personally-written speeches either regarding their impression on Korean Culture or what they want the Koreans to know about the Philippines. The topics were selected on grounds that would enable the participants to draw from their personal thoughts and knowledge regarding the cultures of the two countries.
The Center has selected Korean panelists who will be screening the speeches sent in by the applicants and the chosen finalists will be given their respective Korean buddies who will help them improve speech grammar and practice pronunciations.
The contestants will be judged according to the originality of their ideas, content value and speech structure as well as mastery of the language according to their levels. Also, the stage presence of the participants will be taken into account for the overall score.
The deadline of the application is on April 20 and the competition will be on May 18. The guidelines and application forms can be found on the Centerâ€™s official website.
