Following the successful events in 2019, the Japan Society and the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) are delighted to invite you to first session of the year of the bilingual Japanese-English public speaking club. All are welcome, regardless of whether you were able to join us before, to what we hope will be a regular monthly event. The club is open to anyone who would like to improve their skills at speaking in Japanese or English and to learn techniques and tricks to expand their communication and presentation abilities. Good knowledge of Japanese and English is desirable but all levels are welcome to join us. Japanese native speakers and students of Japanese or English are encouraged to participate!

The Bilingual Public Speaking Club is based on the ASC method and its step by step programme to develop the confidence and skills to succeed in speaking in public. The first part of the session will be in English and after a short break the second part will follow in Japanese. Participants will follow the ASC Speakers Guide introductory programme, which involves progressing through speech construction, using gestures and body language, using your voice and using humour to effectively get your point across, in addition to getting detailed feedback from evaluators at each step.
You can find more information and details about public speaking clubs in the ASC website here.

Different roles are required (speakers, evaluators, helpers) both in English and Japanese, so please let us know if you would like to be considered for any of these roles (more information will be provided in this case). Those wishing to attend and simply observe are also welcome.

Light refreshments will be provided.

We are grateful to Graham Street, ASC public speaking club at Nomura International, and Nomura Japan club for hosting this event.
