Speech Contest


So my Junior High students have worked intently preparing their speeches for the annual speech contest in Izumo. Students have to either write their own speech or recite a speech memorize it and then recite it. At the speech contest there are 3 judges that judge on their pronunciation, speed and how “native” they sounds meaning just how natural and not awkward they are speaking. I helped the chosen students from each grade(1-3) after school for a week helping them pronounce words or giving them speech tips such as making eye contact and using intonation and facial expressions. I was so happy to find out they places second. They all worked so hard.
