He introduced a very beautiful passage from an old Japanese novel the pillow book (枕草子) and we could feel cool summer night. Of course he organized the meeting very well.

TM Matxx showed the word of the day, “go against with well prepared sentences as example.

TM Itxx conducted “Good & New”.

Randomly assigned 4 club members talked about good news within 24 hours in this session. Time was not enough for all club members to speak out, but it was a great opportunity to warm up our facial muscles.

TM Takxx presented “News of the Week”. Usually, it is presented recent News in social, but he presented News for us, Tokyo metropolitan TMC member in this time. It is because, one of club member temporarily came back to Japan from Morocco and we welcomed a guest from JETM. He introduced how to become a Japanese language teacher, where is the places to work for them, etc.  It was very interested topics for all of us.
