  Principal Wang Hao delivered a speech and mentioned the following three points.

  First, what exactly does CFLS give students in the three years of school life?

  The answer is three qualities: firstly, the humanistic characteristics of national spirit and international vision; secondly, the youthful quality of innovation, collaboration and tolerance; thirdly, the ability and specialty of outstanding foreign languages ​​and good communication skills.

  Second, the greatness of drama. Drama is the greatest art form. The great thing about drama is that it is a sharing of wisdom in dealing with the world, it is an emotional experience. In this experience, drama gives us the progress of the mind and the growth of the mind.

  Third, Principal Wang commented on the performance of Senior Two students. Through the wonderful performance of the students, we felt the strength of English culture. This performance includes not only many famous plays by Shakespeare, but also famous plays by Dickens and Canadian playwrights. Principal Wang believes that after such outstanding students graduate, they will go out to the world with an inclusive attitude and bring Chinese culture to the world.

 

 

  Finally, the three foreign teachers commented on the drama in turn, expressing their full affirmation and expectation for Senior Two students. The foreign teacher said that from the wonderful performances of the students and the enthusiastic response of the audience, they felt the charm of the drama.

  This foreign language and cultural festival creates a good foreign language learning atmosphere for students, improves students' foreign language skills and comprehensive quality, and enhances students' enthusiasm for foreign language learning. CFLS cultivates not only newcomers of the era with national awareness, but also elite talents with International vision and cross-cultural communication skills.
