On January 12th, 2013, the English Speaking Society held the 35th annual ESS Speech Contest. This contest is held every year, usually during the school festival Reiryosai in November and has a long history. For the speeches, participants wrote and memorized a 5-7 minute speech in English and presented in front of students, teachers and three judges.
This year we had a variety of interesting topics. The 3 winning speech titles were: 'Globalization: Winners and Losers', 'Fear of Alcohol', and 'We are Japanese'.  The speeches were sometimes serious and sometimes funny, but all were very informative and engaging. Thank you to all who participated and came to watch. We are looking forward to continuing this great tradition again at Reiryosai in 2013. Come and join us!
