On Saturday, March 11th, our school's annual event, the Model United Nations of KUMON International (MUNK Int.), was held.
A “Model” United Nations is a conference where each student becomes an ambassador of a different country and discusses solutions to global issues and problems. MUNK International is different from last month’s MUNK conference, as it is conducted entirely in English.
Participating in the event can be quite demanding, but more than 70 students from our school (from junior high school first year to second year of high school) as well as guest participants from other schools, took part in the intense English-only debates.
Even the first-year junior high school students took up the challenge to speak in English, impressively keeping up with their seniors.
