Dear mebers of the Kyoto ESS members.

I am Akira Hashimoto from the Kyoto ESS. I will be in charge of practice on next week, so I would like to make an announcement for what I am planning to do.

Since this is the first day of the summer season (month), I would like you to discuss about what do you want to do for this summer.

Date: 1st of July, 2017
Genre: Talk
Title: What do you want to achieve in this summer?

4:Description
At first, members will be divided to 5-6 groups depending on the number of attendant.
Then, people in the groups will share what they want to do during this summer (holidays).
What you are planning to do can be anything, from personal matters to the business/academical matters.
For example, where you want to make a visit, who you want to meet, what event you want to attend, etc.
Please feel free to exchange your thought.

Best regards,

Akira Hashimoto
