Exciting news for Japanese language learners in Kenya! Applications are officially open for those who’d like to participate in the Japanese Speech Contest 2016 which will be held on the 12th of March at the JICC! Not only is the speech contest a great way to challenge yourself and go the extra mile in your language journey, it may also give you the chance to visit Japan!
As you may know, I was fortunate enough to win this year’s contest. Because of this and my performance in the JLPT, I got to go to Japan on a fully funded study-tour program that saw me visit Osaka, Kyoto, Hiroshima, and other amazing places. You can read more about my visit to Japan here. 🙂
Now that you are sufficiently motivated to give it a shot, let’s talk about the contest. 😀 This time around there are two theme options: you may either speak about “Japan in my Eyes”, or select a topic of your choice. You should then prepare a speech of 3 to 5 minutes, and send the draft to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 31st 2016. You can find out more on the Japanese Language Teachers Association of Kenya (JALTAK) website, here.
What are you waiting for? Give it a try! All the best!
