Great news to Japanese language learners (who are no longer in secondary school)! 

Introducing the NIHONGO Video Contest 2021. A new breath was given to the previous Skit Contest; the NIHONGO Video Contest 2021 invites participants to create videos in their preferred style according to the theme.  

The objective of the contest is to enhance Japanese language communicative competence among post-secondary school non-native Japanese language learners in Malaysia.
