On Saturday, October 29th, Mihara’s annual English speech contest was held. Junior high school students from all over the city made speeches in English – including me. Yep, that’s right! However instead of competing normally and slaughtering all the competition, I was made to do a ‘model speech’ at the end.
I spoke about the differences between Australian and Japanese schools, but was careful not to make Japan sound too bad (I tried, I really did).
The original document of my speech is here, and video coming soon.
It was actually really fun and I met lots of nice people. It was funny listening to everyone’s accents
Can you spot me?
Even though I wasn’t allowed to win a prize, in my heart I won a gold medal!!!
And yes, I am aware that that was disgustingly cheesy. It’s what comes from taking moral studies classes.
Until we meet again,
Ruby <3 xoxo
