Topics (suggestions): “Be a better self” Your past does not define you. Be confident, diligent, and hardworking; learn to discipline yourself, but don’t forget to cheer yourself up. Improvements are made up of small changes towards the good. When placing ourselves in order, we can then change the world.
“Artificial Intelligence” - In the summer of 1956, a few visionaries gathered together to study and explore simulated intelligence; coined the term “Artificial Intelligence”. Since then, scientists from all over the world have been pressing on to make “A.I.” a reality. Discuss what you know on the topic of “A.I.”
“No longer far away” - China is thousands of miles away. However, learning Chinese will instantly shorten the distance. China is no longer far away.
You may also create your own topic, make your message is clear and convincing.
