Lieutenant Commander Allan D. Brown first proposed the idea for an essay contest sponsored by the . Naval Institute for "a paper which shall be deemed the best" on 9 May 1878 at the organization's meeting in Annapolis. The first contest was in 1879. The name of the contest was changed in 1985 to the Arleigh Burke Essay Contest in honor of the World War II hero, former Chief of Naval Operations, and President of the Naval Institute. The name reverted to the General Prize in 2008. Today, the prizes honor the first, second, and third best articles published in Proceedings over the previous year, from October through September of the succeeding year.
Also, I had my speaking test today, so I want to share with many students who will take test tomorrow.
In part 1, the questions was about
city/town where I live now...and the other questions(sorry I can't remember at the moment)
Part2 was..'describe a kind of book you like' -why, when did you start to read that kind of book, how often..
Part3 was..about the reading and book (the reason shy people read a book, what are the benefits, what's the government responsibility about public library...etc.)
