To prepare for the competition, Graduate School and the School of Foreign Languages organized qualification trials in June 2020, and about 40 students won the first, second, third and excellent awards in these trials. After that, experienced instructors from the School of Foreign Languages, including Guo Wei, Liu Weiwei, Zheng Fei and Yan Li, provided online training for these candidates, aiming at improving students’ speech ability and preparing them better for the competition. Since September 2020, the students have hacked their way through the preliminary round, intermediate round and final contest, and finally harvested good results in the competition.
Jointly organized by China English for Academic Purpose Association, the Chinese Association for ESP, Shanghai College English Teaching Steering Committee and North China Electric Power University, the 3rd 5MRP Competition was held for Chinese undergraduates and postgraduates to improve their ability of using English to conduct scientific research and academic communication. Competitors were required to introduce one scientific achievement or idea in English to the people in all walks of life. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the competition adopted a combination of online submission of video entries and offline contests. In total, competitors from 67 universities submitted 1,234 video entries.
