Careful preparation in the waiting classroom


  During participants' preparation time, we interviewed some of them. From their talking, we learnt that most of them have studied Chinese for a long time. And this is a quite good opportunity for them to proof their Chinese level and their keen interest in Chinese culture. Everybody would play their best to give judges and spectators talent show. A young guy with a guitar attached our eyes, after a short conversation, we knew that he was Malaysia with twelve years' Chinese study experience. Now he is a post-graduate in Tsinghua University. And what is special is he had entered the First Mandarin Star contest last year, but unfortunately he could not knock open the final door. He never gave up his Mandarin Star dream, and today taking his own composing work, he would give everyone beautiful enjoyment.
