When I first heard that there would be a recitation contest in the English Week, I was pretty excited. This is a great opportunity for us students to share our favorite poems or scripts from books.
Back at home, it actually took me some time to decide which script to read. Many of the other students planned to read poems from great writers like Shakespeare, however, I finally chose to recite something unique, something that no one else would have recited the same.
To be honest, it has been a long time since I have finished that writing. So this event really gave me a chance to look into the past and cherish the precious moments in my life. Though what I wanted to read to the audience was a little sentimental, I emerged my full emotion into it and all I want was to share my feelings with other people.
In my opinion, the recitation contest is all about sharing. We share our happiness of reading the beautiful sentences, our satisfaction of enjoying the vivid expressions, our insights into the past and future,… We not only shared, but also gained. As the saying goes, Shared joy is a double joy, shared sorrow is half a sorrow. I am grateful that I could participate in this event and I hope that there will be more fabulous events like this in the future.
