第二階段－即席演講：第一階段比賽L1/L2組前4名者及 EFL 組前8名者(錄取決賽人數可能依情況調整)，始得晉級參加即席演講比賽，題目於上台前10分鐘抽籤決定。參賽者依序抽題，每人準備時間10分鐘，第一位參賽者抽完題目5分鐘後，第二位參賽者開始抽籤，依序進行。
Only those ranked in the top four in L1/L2 group and top eight in EFL group in part I can join the impromptu speech. The topic will be decided by drawing lots ten minutes before this section starts. Contestants will draw the lots in order, and each has ten minutes to prepare the impromptu speech. The second contestant will draw the lot 5 minutes after the first contestant, and so on for the third through sixth contestants.
Two minutes for the impromptu speech and no points will be deducted if the speech is fifteen seconds longer or shorter than these prescribed times.
The bell will ring at 1 min. 30 sec. as a reminder, and will ring at 2 min. as a reminder of closure. A speech length falling between 1 min. 45 sec. and 2 min. 15 sec. will not be penalized; however, beyond this range (longer or shorter), one point will be deducted. Those who exceed 2 min. 30 sec. will not be allowed to continue delivering their speech.
3) Grading standard:
Accuracy of language 30%
Time control 10%
When contestants have the same points, the person with the highest score for “Content” will win (if that is the same, too, the highest score for “Accuracy of language,” … and so forth).
4) Contestants should take responsibility regarding copyright and bring a dictionary. Please turn off your phone during the contest. Scripts, reference books (except dictionary), and electronic devices are not allowed when preparing your speech. No scripts are allowed on stage for either part of the contest.
