The Lunch Presentation Meeting series continues in the year 2019. New students coming in the spring are slated to present on any topic of their choice. For the series 130-133, we have had students from Ghana, Thailand, Taiwan, and Brunei presenting. We are very happy to see many Japanese students coming to listen, and asking questions to the presenters too.

Presentation on Thailand (Chiang Mai, Thai food, festivals), and Taiwan (Keelung, Tainan, Chiayi, food, festivals) (Lunch Presentation Meeting #124, #125)
We had two teams making the presentations number 124 for Thailand, and number 125 for Taiwan. They focused on their hometowns, the food culture and the festivals.
Kagawa University conducted the annual Reception Party for International Students, with the President as the host.
There were more than 250 participants in the event, with international students being the main group, plus university staff, and members of international associations in Kagawa.
With this large number, the food naturally disappeared in no time.
As in previous years, international students provided the entertainment with dance performances from Bangladesh, Vietnam, Thailand, and Indonesia.
The last number by Indonesia had the students up and dancing along.
We trust the students enjoyed the event as much as we did and we hope this provided them with some energy and enthusiasm to concentrate on their studies.

For the 122nd presentation in the series, a student from Korea made a presentation on her home-city of Deagu. The following week, a Japanese student talked about the intricacies of bento (Japanese lunch box). Both occasions were well attended by international and Japanese students.
