Sixth Inter-University German Speech Competition on 12 November 2016
This year, the sixth inter-university German Speech Competition for university students studying German in Hong Kong was held under the theme "Höher, schneller, weiter?".
This competition was organised by the German language departments of five universities, namely Hong Kong Baptist University, Chinese University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong City University, Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and The University of Hong Kong, in cooperation with Goethe-Institut Hongkong. As in the previous years, the competition was also supported by the Consulate General.
Each of the participating universities could choose their three best candidates to compete in the final on 12 November 2016 at the Hong Kong Baptist University, this year's hosting university.
The first prize was a two-week language course (in June 2017) at a Goethe-Institut in Germany including the flight. For the first time, an audience award was given this year. The audience could win a scholarship of a culture-specific course at Goethe-Institut Hongkong and other special prizes by participating in a quiz on German-speaking countries (Austria, Germany and Switzerland).
