The 3rd Annual Japanese Business Presentation Contest

Students’ Section

For the 3rd time running, A to Z Language Centre is organizing the Annual Japanese Business Presentation Contest – Students’ Section. The information is included as below.

Contest Objective:
This contest aims to promote a stronger bond between Malaysia and Japan, while at the same time, spread awareness about the beauty of the Japanese language. Malaysian students who possess an interest in working for Japanese corporations are welcome to participate.

Through this contest, we hope to forge even more meaningful and long-term connections between Malaysian residents who are proficient in the Japanese language, with Japanese companies and businesses that are looking to expand their pool of talents. Since its conception in year 2015, the Annual Japanese Business Presentation Contest – Students’ Section has been greatly received among members of the community. From the discovery of new talents to the promise of fruitful encounters, our goal is for Malaysians to have a platform where they can actively practice their knowledge of the Japanese language.
