#SAC #Japanese #International Students #Speech Contest #GlobalBBA

On Wednesday, December 14, 2022, the Faculty of International Studies held the 4th Japanese Language Speech Contest.

Eight students whose native language is not Japanese, including international students on the Japanese track (正規留学生), and the Global BBA program, participated in the contest. Each student delivered a four-minute speech based on the theme they had.


Presenters whose native language includes Mandarin, Cantonese, Hindi, Mongolian, Ukrainian, and Indonesian took on the challenge delivering excellent  speeches on various topics.

Li from Taiwan on our Japanese track won the Grand Prize on the theme of "The Last Speech Contest," and Namhaa from India, a 1st year student on the Global BBA Program, won the Audience Prize for her moving speech on "Life Goes On".

Japanese Speech Contest
In response to the increase in the number of international students at our school we have been holding a Japanese Speech Contest since 2019. The purpose of this contest is not only to provide an opportunity for international students to challenge their language skills in front of an audience, but also for Japanese students to become aware of internationalization on campus by listening to diverse voices. Each year NUCB brings in approximately over 200 students from over 35 different nationalities. For the Japanese students who attended the contest, it was a valuable opportunity to experience the internationalization of our university.
