Japanese language Speech Contest 2018.2.10
I went to a Japanese language speech contest which was held at Kawasaki International center. Nine foreigners from Indonesia, china, India, Laos, Vietnam,  Cambodia, Thai   participated. According to the promoter in Kawasaki municipal, there are about 40 thousands people from abroad lives in Kawasaki. The total population now is 1.5 million.
The contest was the 23rd of its kind and the participants' qualification is that foreigner must have  lived shorter than 5 years in Japan. The length of the speech must be within 5 minutes.
I was surprised that they could speak proper Japanese as well as the content was impressive. It was difficult for me to chose which speaker won. The contest judges must have had  difficulty with rating. Through the contest, I learned the importance to do one's best from them.
