Voices of the participants

I had a lot of fun reconnecting and making new connections.
I also enjoyed doing the dance and feeling the EIC spirit again 🙂

It was really needed to boost the motivation of everyone to make a restart.
I hope these members, joined today, can contribute in promoting, boosting, restarting KUMON events.

Thank you for allowing me to participate in a real event for the first time in a while.
Many mini-reunions have been held as a result of this meeting, and Mr. Kumon’s influence in organizing these onsite events is tremendous.
After the coronavirus, I think there are fewer people who have experience in onsite events, but the more you join such like events, the more you will definitely improve (same as the Kumon style of repetition), so I hope you don’t give up and continue doing it “just right”. is. Thank you very much. I look forward to the future activities.

Today’s meeting was inspiring. I met new friends from all over the world in KUMON and all of them have amazing experience I can learn with. They also welcome me. From today’s meeting I know that KUMON is a place I want to return to.
