English Night



English Night was iPlaza's first event this year, where participants could play games and chat in English.
E-SUP students became dealers of games and explained the rules to participants.
At first, E-SUP students were nervous because this was the first time for them to speak in English in front of many people. However, thanks to the participants' friendly attitude listening to their explanation carefully, E-SUP students felt relaxed and finally enjoyed talking with international students.
The game dealers were glad to see that everyone had a good time communicating with many people in English.
