In spite of February, I was warmly cheerful and attended many toast masters. In addition, we got new member.
It was a meeting that I tried the first TMOD, I greeted a new member, and I was able to make a new feeling suitable for Setsubun.
Today's word is 'Stunning' . meaning is great brilliant etc. Thanks to selecting up an easy-to-use word, the members were able to use these words many times and could increase their vocabulary.
* Table Topics
Table Topics is a style of instant and impromptu speeches. The Table Topics master gives the audience a topic and assign a member as a speaker. The speaker MUST speak about the topic in two minutes. It's a good practice to develop quick response skill.
In this session, the Table Topics master gave us these topics as shown in below,
Have you had any Setsubun in recent year?
Is there any demon in yourself?
What is your favourite things in spring?

Comment:It was a suitable subject for Setsubun today. The last question 'What is your favourite things in spring?' MK-san wants to go famous 'ramen' restaurant because the restaurant is too popular, so we need to wait to eat for a long time in warm spring.

* Prepared Speech
Prepared Speech is a speech according to manuals published by Toastmasters International. A speaker shall speak a speech based on the objectives on the manuals.
In the meeting, we had three prepared speakers.
・There are full of the comedy in the train but also risks
・Meaning of sweets
・Charm of Tea Ceremony
The first speaker played the two episodes that occurred in the commuter train full of presence. at end of the speech , he told us to way of avoiding the risk. The meeting was warmful because of all laughing from the beginning to end and it was a very exciting speech

The second speaker taught me the meaning of sweets such as bound cake, candy, caramel, because the Valentine's Day is comming. It was very suitable for this time, I was hungry before lunch.

The third speaker has taught the charm tea ceremonies and of Zen. It was a speech that will be very useful because there are many things I do not know such as how to make tea ceremonies.
* Evaluation
In Evaluation session, the evaluators pointed out strong points of the prepared speeches and gave suggestions to the prepared speakers to make the speeches more effective.
In evaluation, we got a very tough and proper feedback. Since there is no teacher at Toastmaster, I realized that it is a wonderful system to evaluate each other's good points and point out the improvement points

* Award Presentation
All attendees selected the best speakers for each session by voting and the MC gave the awards to the best speakers. Congratulations to all!
