The hosts of CCTV Outlook English Television Magazine program and ex-Stars of Outlook also came to the camp. They shared their experience of studying English with campers. Campers seized this chance to take pictures with them and get their signatures.
Staffs of CCTV Outlook English Television Magazine program gave them a warm welcome. Nonetheless his busy work, Mr. Xu Yiming, the general producer of this program joins the summer campers, thanks them for their support and encourages them to improve their English constantly as well.
The Interview to Mr. Xu Yiming
I delegate all the comrades in CCTV Outlook English program to welcome all the students and teachers from the summer camp to come to CCTV to join the transcription of our program. And this is the program of the Third Outlook English Talent Competition. I think through this program, the students in the summer camp will definitely improve their English speaking and listening abilities. And they can find out where they fall short with these contestants in such kind of environment.
During the course of recording, the campers are impressed by program crew’s seriousness, from the show host to the program director. From this, they realize that one high quality TV program is made by all great efforts of the crew.
The Interview to Campers
I learn the information about the Outlook final competition from the Internet. So I think maybe it’s a good experience for me to compare and to have a look. I think it's a very good memory in my life. I really feel this kind of competition is very meaningful and very interesting.
In the break, two hosts, Zhao Yinqi and Zhu Hua, meet campers who are very happy to take pictures with their favorite hosts and get their signatures.
It is their first time to come to CCTV and they are curious about everything. Even the foreign teacher also talks about her great interest in this program with much excitement.

I met CCTV and stars of Outlook with in the summer of 2002 and we’ve been watching the activities and performances today. All the students are having a very good time. We enjoy the English competition very much.
During the hot competition, campers are impressed by the participants’ fluent English speeches and wit questions and answers, and become more and more interested in English study.
This was an unforgettable experience to go to CCTV and gather with Outlook English Television Magazine program. And such an experience would inspire these campers to make more efforts to learn English and to use English.
