ou are invited to apply for the J.LIVE Talk 2020! Preliminary application period will start soon.


J.LIVE (Japanese Learning Inspired Vision and Engagement) Talk was founded in 2015 as a college-level Japanese language presentation competition. It's similar to a TED Talk where a presenter shares his/her vision using audio-visual materials and interacts with the audience. This is a perfect chance to showcase your Japanese proficiency and dynamic presentational skills to the world! 


This year, there are two new changes. First, we are adding a High School Division for the first time. Second, instead of our usual in-person DC event, J.LIVE Talk will be livestreamed on YouTube using Zoom.


Please visit our website https://jlivetalk.com/ to learn everything you need to know about eligibility, preliminary application, tips for online presentation and more. You can also watch past J.LIVE Talk events to see our finalists and their award-winning presentations. 


In order to apply, you will need a Japanese teacher who can be your mentor and coach if you are chosen as a finalist. For those who are interested in applying to the J.LIVE Talk 2020, please contact your Japanese teacher and discuss all the application and eligibility details. 


If you have any questions that our website doesn't answer, please contact us: info@jlivetalk.com.


We can't wait to receive your application!
