I attended the academic conference of Practical English Phonetic Society of Japan (EPSJ) on October 27. It was my first academic meeting for a while.
I listened to three research presentations and three lectures. One of the presentations was given in English. It was probably first time to see an English academic speech live. That was really impressive. I would like to improve my public communication skills and be able to talk intelligibly and persuasively. In addition to learning English itself, I have to learn more about communication and practice.
Thank you to all of EPSJ members and Dr. UG for giving me the valuable opportunity. (Blue Sky)
