July 1st lesson

Dear students,
Today you will prepare for your final speech on either the 8th or the 15th of July. The rules of Rikkyo University are rather strict so you must not read from a script. You may have notes if you wish, but you should not read. You should make about 18 to 20 slides and talk for at least five minutes.
If you show me your slides, or your outline I can offer advice. One final thing to remember is that you should not copy other sources, from the Internet, for example.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin
