The 8th Japanese Speech Contest for Secondary Schools

Closing date: 31 March 2011
Are you dreaming to go to Japan? Well, if you are a secondary school student currently studying Japanese, you might have the chance. The Japanese Speech Contest for Secondary Schools is back!!!

This contest is aimed at providing an opportunity for Japanese learners at secondary school level to express their opinions and thoughts in Japanese as well as to show their skills in the language. We hope that this would raise awareness and deepen understanding among secondary school students on the importance of intercultural and cross-cultural communication.
