This past weekend, December 3rd, the English Cafe hosted the second annual English Presentation Contest at Kagawa University. 28 contestants  ranging from first year to graduate and international students took part. Divided into two groups, the students prepared their best slide shows and delved into a multitude of topics. After much deliberation and consternation, the judges awarded prizes to the top performers of the day. Each group had two third place finishers, a second place presenter and an overall winner. The award winners were given ¥1,000, ¥3,000 or ¥5,000 book vouchers respectively, redeemable in the school store. It was a wonderful display from many students who have put a lot of work into improving their English abilities. Keep an eye out for posters for next year’s contest if you’re interested in competing next time.

Thursday October 27th, the English Cafe celebrated Halloween during the weekly English Lunch Conversation activity. Costumes and games were a common sight as both students and staff took part in the festivities. After a quick bite to eat, the fun began with a round of Doubt where groups tried to figure who the odd one out was based on clues.


                                                      Hmmmm….who doesn’t belong?

After that, things really came a bit unraveled as teams competed to make the best toilet paper mummy within five minutes. A lot of spinning, wrapping and mummifying later the results were in. Kevin, an International Exchange student from Germany, and his team proved that they were the best embalmers as their performance was judged the most mummy-like.


                                                         Kevin in all his mummified glory!

It was a great activity and the cleanup was quick and easy with all the participants chipping in a helping hand.


                                           A few more mummies that can barely contain their excitement!

It was a great event and everyone involved had a lot of fun. The English Cafe Volunteer Staff did a great job organizing and leading everything. We at the English Cafe can’t wait until next year to see what spooky and raucous shenanigans the students of Kagawa University get into.


                                                        Thank you to everyone who joined us this year!

The second semester of the 2016 school year is underway and these are the workshops being offered in the English Cafe. Please feel free to join in any and all activities taking place this fall and winter.
