Podcast Episode 37 – Toastmasters

In episode #37 of the English Fluency Now podcast, I am discussing Toastmasters International.

Nicole and I attended our first Toastmasters meeting this week. Our town has a rather new local chapter of Toastmasters International. They call themselves PT Smooth Talkers. PT stands for Port Townsend (our town) and a smooth talker is a person who is good at speaking in such a way as to convince others about something or to sell them something. It also means a person who is good at public speaking.

My brother has participated in Toastmasters in San Francisco, CA and so I have known about this organization for many years, but I had never been to a meeting. In the past, when I had looked for a local group online, we didn’t have one, but now that we do, I am eager to learn more.

In the podcast, I give a short description about the organization and then you can listen to a real, unscripted conversation between me and Nicole about our thoughts on the meeting.

If you would like to read along with the transcript, you can purchase the Lesson Guide on the PRODUCTS page.

Let me know what you think in the comments section below.
