The 211th meeting was held on Oct 13th in Ningyo-cho community center.
Tonight’s TMOE (Toast master of the Evening) was TM NM, also known as material boy.
“Challenge” was the word of the evening selected by TM RA, who is new member.
Prepared Speech Session: We had five prepared speech.
1.”My Experience of Learning English” CC#1 The Ice Breaker By new joiner TM YH
She tried many methods to learn English. Several methods did not work well, but online lessen with Filipino teachers, and studying abroad in Philippines works very well. Her next challenge is Nihonbashi TMC. She challenged to improve English skills here.
2.”My white lie” CC#5 Your body Speaks By TM HO
He just had transferred to new department this Oct. His colleagues in previous department held farewell party and gave him a nice Montblanc Pen with his name. However he got drunk at party, and lost his bag in the train. The Montblanc Pen was in the bag. OMG!! He could not tell the truth to his colleagues, so he bought exactly the same pan by himself. Until now, he is still not sure that telling the truth is better or not.
3.”Welcome to our American football team” CC#6 Vocal variety By TM YM
When He started the speech, he wore the Cap and said he is our team coach. It turn out that he was American football player when he was student, and his position was defense. He explained what American football is and taught us the game rules. When he explained each position, he actually put some Nihonbashi Century Club member in position, so it helps us to easily understand.
4.”Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus” CC#6 Vocal Variety By TM MY
She started the speech with showing us the one scene which very often happened with couple. She explained why these kind of problems happened so often, and taught us male and female have different way of thinking and tend to use their own style to solve the problems. Therefore, the conflicts are easily to occur between male and female. Since male and female are totally different, this is why we said male and female are from different planet.
5.”Let’s find your own one” CC#8 Get comfortable with Visual Aids By TM YF
He used many pictures with his speech. Firstly, he showed us the famous painting in profile from Egypt Are to current days, and explained how the painting was changed. And then, he also gave us examples of Edison and Newton. Finally, he told us that what he have learned from these examples. His main point is a good question leads to good answer.
