Speech contest 2011

This year’s KAI’s speech contest was held at the small hall of Olympic Center as always on March 4, 2011. 16 students selected from each class made speech there.
This time’s KAI includes 10 kinds: “皆”, “改”, “会”, “快”, “貝”, “階”, “櫂”, “界”, “解” and “怪”. The most popular theme was “会”, which was the same as last year’s. The next was “快” which 3 students chose followed by “解” 2 students did. And the others were picked one by one.
The KAI the first place winner, Annekatrin, chose was “解”. She picked a misunderstanding incident caused by “Not being able to read the atmosphere” after she arrived in Japan. She was highly evaluated for her compactly well-organized speech and dignified presentation. I’m already looking forward to listen to next year’s speeches.
