Chinese New Year Speech


2019 will be the year of the Pig
February 5th

When you give your Chinese New Year speech you may want to talk about it being the year of the Pig. The Pig is the 12th 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 about my courses

'Recommend to all speakers of the English Language who wish to improve or correct their pronunciation. The Teacher has a great way of explaining concepts and the reasons why a pronunciation should be correctly pronounced in a certain way. I like the tutor's way of teaching,which is a traditional style,that has substance and clarity. Video and Audio quality is very good.' - Shaun, Aug 2018

'I had a mumbling issue which led me to go to a speech therapist and pay £100 per session, after losing £200 and still not having a solution, I came across this course and I had quickly found the solution to my problem. Over and above that, I got a lot more out of this course, more than anything a real enlightenment as to how I speak, how that comes across and how I can improve my speech to get better outcomes out of conversations and speeches. Thank you Serena.' Reuben, Aug 2018
