Japanese Speech Contest, Victoria 2016

12 September 2016 by

On Sunday 11 September, Dana Galvan, one of the Year 11 students, participated in the Japanese Speech ContestĀ held at the University of Melbourne. The contest provides an excellent opportunity to learners of Japanese to practice and consolidate their language skills.

Dana was one of the 18 contestants in the High School Senior Division. The topic of her speech was the Japanese word “Mottainai” which expresses the feeling of regret when things are wasted. She delivered her two-and-half-minute speech in a very confident manner.

Dana was successful in winning the RMIT University Excellence Award in her division. It was a second success for Dana this year following Geelong Japanese Speech Contest in July where Dana won the first prize in the senior category. Congratulation Dana!
