Good people of Kumamoto!
Many of you will be at Kumamoto’s Skill Development Conference (SDC) next Thursday and Friday. Throughout all of SDC, KumAJET traditionally has a booth where we sell homemade baked goods and used books and DVDs (50% of all proceeds will go to Jiaien Children’s Home). We will also have a raffle. If you would like to donate baked goods, please note what you’re bringing on the sheet and bring it on Thursday morning or give it to a KumAJET member beforehand! Everything will be about 100 yen each!
On the first night of SDC, there will be a pub quiz at Oden, a German beer hall in Shimotori. If you’re around on Thursday night and don’t know what else to do, come to Beer Restaurant Oden with a team of friends for sausages, pretzels, and the chance to duke it out with JETs from all across Kumamoto for the title of trivia masters! We will have Teams should be around 4-6 people! While the beer is not included in the entry price, there is good beer from across the world and we highly recommend trying out one or two while you’re there.

Date and Time: Thursday, Nov. 28th, from 19:30-21:30

See y’all at SDC!
This coming weekend, people all across Kumamoto City and beyond will gather for the English Market, Kumamoto’s premier English-speaking international market! With vendors, entertainers, and activities planned throughout the day, it’s sure to be a nice Sunday out for people of all ages and English levels.
The goal of English Market is to create a fun, low-stakes environment for people to use English and communicate with each other. As always, mistakes are okay! We hope that English speakers in the area will enjoy the market and help show that English is fun!
Catch your favorite KumAJET members around the area staffing the event. We also have a booth where we will be holding an English book sale for charity. See you there!
See their website and SNS services like Instagram and Facebook for more details!
