Great Job! Well done!
One of our great students here at Smith`s School of Englishスミス英会話 in Fuse Higashiosaka 東大阪布施 showed the best of her abilities at the 31st High School English speech contest スピーチコンテストin Yao 八尾! (The official name is 第３１回高校生弁論大会.) Due to her continued effort and iron will to perform better and better still, she managed to make the second place at this English speech contest 英語スピーチコンテスト! We were all very happy for her, especially as she managed to win an overseas study trip 留学旅行.
It is amazing what young people can do if they set their mind to it. Certainly, she had some help from her English teacher at school and naturally we let her practice and helped her correcting her speech スピーチ here in the English conversation school 英会話教室 in Fuse, Higashiosaka 東大阪布施, whenever there was the possibility to do so. But to be honest, she had set her mind on winning this speech contest and it is only due to her will, effort and her abilities that she made the second place. Great job! Her comment was “惜しかった” because she did not make first place. That`s the spirit!
Now she is looking forward to her well earned vacation overseas – where to is not decided yet. But I am sure that she will enjoy the trip and have some great experiences. When I was her age, I too went to learn overseas 英語留学, and that time is one of my most valued experiences till today. I strongly believe that it is one of the best ways to experience another culture!
