Summer 2016 in Japan

Two awardees of J.LIVE Talk 2015 have been given an opportunity to study abroad in Japan in Summer 2016.

Naganuma School

Mr. Danny Jeon (Gold Award Winner) is currently enrolled in the advanced “Comprehensive Course” at Naganuma School in Tokyo.
Asked about the J.LIVE Talk experience, he said “J.LIVE Talk is special; it gave me a chance to experience a unique Foreign Language training that I was not able to experience in a typical college foreign language setting. If it were not for the J.LIVE Talk, I would not have gotten an opportunity to deliver a speech in Japanese by using a PowerPoint in front of a large audience. I highly encourage all Japanese learning students to participate in the J.LIVE talk – from the preparation to the final delivery, it was an amazing experience.”

Nanzan University

Ms. Chieko Quigley (Judge's Special Prize) has just finished a six-week study at Nanzan University. She has attended intensive Japanese courses offered by the Center for Japanese Studies, as well as sat in a course on US-Japan comparative policies with her Japanese peers.
You can see the many great photos and lively reports of her various activities from pottery making to figure skating in Nagoya from here.
