had the Evaluation Workshop on Dec 4. The lecturer was TM W-da from
Atsugi-zama TMC and the workshop was very significant and useful for us.
TM Y-yama gave a wonderful model speech.
workshop was planned in detail. TM W-da mentioned mental attitude and
preparation for speech evaluations that can be made a few days before
the meeting. And he explained ways to prepare for an evaluation before
the meeting, how to evaluate during the speech and after the meeting.
And then he talked about how to organize evaluation speech. He also
introduced appropriate usage and many other useful expressions for
evaluation. After that TM Y-yama gave a model speech (target speech that
the workshop participants evaluate). We were divided into the group of
4-5 and evaluated the speech one by one and then 3 members gave good
evaluation speeches. Finally, we had Q&A session.
was TMOE(Toastmaster of the Evening) of the meeting and learned a lot
of things from the workshop. I thought it took time to improve
evaluation skill but I would challenge evaluating as much as possible.
