November Workshop

3-5 pm Saturday November 20th  

Room 105 Injaeguan Center, Sookmyung Women's University   

Toastmasters International is a non-profit organization that has helped more than 260,000 members in 113 countries to better themselves. Members learn how to prepare and present professional speeches, how to provide immediate & constructive feedback, and how to give impromptu speeches in a friendly and supportive learning environment.  A great number of people from all around the world have followed the Toastmasters proven and enjoyable program since 1924, but not many people, especially in Korea, know about Toastmasters.
This workshop will showcase the key features of Toastmasters, and especially how it is beneficial to public school, hagwon, college and university teachers. There will be a  demo meeting with a prepared speech session, an evaluation session and an impromptu speech session so that workshop attendees can experience an organized, regular Toastmasters meeting. (There was a toastmasters workshop at the KOTESOL PAC 10  Conference. If you missed it, this is a chance to learn more about the organization)
