[November 28, 2020]

The “10th Student English Speech Contest,” sponsored by the Aichi America-Japan Society, was held on Saturday, November 28th, at the Nagoya Chamber of Commerce & Industry. Students from universities throughout Aichi prefecture participated in the event. Eight participants, all of whom had passed an initial selection process, reflected on their personal experiences and presented carefully-prepared speeches on the topic, “Something I am working hard at.”

Five students from the Department of English Language and Culture gave speeches at the event: Maya Odo (1st year), Toshitaka Kato (1st year), Ngo Hanh Minh Hieu (3rd year), Yu Tazaki (3rd year) and Taiki Mochizuki (3rd year).
