KumAJET will be at English Market!

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!
