This is one of the short report from a participant on this event held on June 18th. If you are interested in joining, please refer to this report!!
———————————–
It was really impressive. The high school students were trying to speak as possible as they can. I met one student, he did not speak that much but he understood all what we talked in English. And I was really surprised when I saw they can communicate with me well.
I also got a chance to learn the strategy from teachers how to encourage the students to speak. To sum up, it was really nice program.
