The second Open Class event of Nendo 2015 took place on September 20 with Miyoko Yoshikawa. Miyoko Yoshikawa is TBS executive announcer and principal of the TBS Announcer School, Yoshikawa's lesson with Sakura Gakuin was based on her TBS Announcer School method. 

The teacher showed the girls how important is the voice to share things, move correctly the mouth in speeches and get attention from people. Also teached what is the "Zero Voice" (voice with no emotions) which is the most relaxed state to speak, and vocal excercises like holding their lips with both hands (see banner above or photos below). 

In addition with the third group of girls she made the girls read weather information aloud, Shirai Saki practiced very well. 

Sakura Gakuin girls read parts of their favorite books, Soyoka Yoshida read part of "Magaku Shonen Tantei-dan" (McGurk Young Detective Organization), Maaya Asou read "Gongitsune", Megumi read "Kumanoko Ufu" (Child Bear Woof). Lastly Shirai Saki read a saved episode of the novel "Kokoro" (Heart) of Soseki Natsume, in an atmosphere of total beauty and calm
