Chinese New Year Speech


2018 is the Year of the Dog

When you give your Chinese New Year speech you may want to talk about it being the year of the Dog. The Dog is the 11th sign of the Chinese zodiac. The full list of animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac are Rat, Ox, Tiger, Rabbit, Dragon, Snake, Horse, Goat, Monkey, Rooster, Dog and Pig. You determine which animal of the Chinese zodiac you are by the year you were born in.

What to put in your Chinese New Year Speech

Many people have to write and give a Chinese New Year Speech and here you will find help in writing and presenting this speech.

China will celebrate Chinese New Year ( also known as the Lunar new Year) on Friday 16th Februray 2018  and it is one of China’s most important events. 2018  is the Year of the Dog.

If you have to give a speech about this remember that every speech must have a beginning, a middle and an end.

I suggest that the beginning would have a little bit about the history and importance of Chinese New Year. Explain why it is different to the Western New Year.

In the middle of the speech talk about the celebrations and parades that take place all over China and other parts of the world. Welcome in the New Year and look forward to wealth and prosperity. Talk about any personal traditions your own family may have, do you always celebrate in the same way? What is your Eve of Chinese New Year feast like? What decorations do you buy or make?

The end of the speech should concentrate on hope for the future. What do you hope or expect from the Year of the Dog? End by thanking your listeners and wishing everyone good fortune, wealth and longevity.

Once you have written your speech practice saying it out loud.

Make sure you don't speak too quickly and make sure that your articulation is clear.

Pause when you get to a full stop or comma.

You must give your listeners time to take in what you have said.

Put expression into your speech by making the important words stand out.

What people say.....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

I would like to thank you for helping me have confidence in my speech today. It is because of you I did much better than I have before when presenting as speech. I was a little shaky, but other than that my voice sounded fine and I pronounced every word slowly and with emphasis on those that I wanted people to hear! Elections are tomorrow. Without you, this would not have happened! You are an inspiration! Thank you so much, Joe from New York

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. Many of the teachers complimented him and were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
