第158回サザンビーチトーストマスターズクラブ(5/20/2017)

~English session~

Today, we had a small group.  The guests were TM Ya from

 Mishima TMC and Mr. Ka.

TM YS introduced the Word of the Day was impeccable which means perfect.  It can be used such as impeccable speech and impeccable manners.

The speech was “Star Tour” by TM NS.  One day, she visited Haneda Airpor

t to pick up her husband with her sister.  Since her husband’s airplane was late, they had extra time for an hour or 2 hours. They found Planetary Study Cafe in th

e airport.  The projection was delivered in English with Japanese captions.  It was interesting to know how to say stars’ names in English.  Haneda Airport is in a good location which is in the central of Tokyo.  The prices are not so high.  There is no limit to stay there.  She is confident that other people will have a good time.

Table Topics was performed by TM NS.

1.  Do you have any recommendations to take an experience?
TM YS answered.  As TM NS talked about Haneda airport, she came up with the same idea about airport tours.  She has seen tours on TV about Haneda tour or Narita tour.  They experience when they go to airport they simulate overseas tours because they are afraid of overseas such as go there first and go there next.  They cannot make a decision which airport they should go.  Can I go to Narita Airport or Haneda Airport?  That’s why a tour company came up with this tour.  That kind of tour is very popular now.

2.  If you have time to go abroad, which country or which place would you choose?
Mr. Ka answered.  He recommended New York.  He likes cities and lived there.  There were crazy taxi drivers in 1970 but things are getting better.

 3.  Could you give me an episode about souvenirs?
TM Mi answered.  Her father often went abroad and brought amenities from hotels.  Only one time, he bought souvenirs for her brother and herself.  Her brother received a Swiss knife but she only received a small bag with some characters.  It was not so good one and she was very disappointed.   

4.  Which drink do you like?  Why do you like that drink?
TM Ya from Mishima TMC answered.  She likes coco very much.  Coco is a chocolate drink.  When she was a high school student, eve

ry day, she drank coco in a train after school.    She asked if we had ever ridden Izu Hakone train.  She sat in a box seat with reading a lot of books while drinking coco.  Coco is delicious in very hot summer. She recommended drinking coco to everybody.

The evaluator of the speech was TM Ao.  First, the speech was well organized because it went on chronologically.  Second, she used well-known proper nouns and numbers.  The model of Haneda Airport is Nihonbashi.  The cafe is organized by Pronto and she waited for 1 hour or 2 hours.  They made us to imagine easily.  He had two suggestions for her.  He recommended her to use more clear body language and vocal variety.  For example, “Wow!  What an interesting place!”  The names of stars were difficult to understand.  Documents and power points should be prepared.  If she uses a projector, people will understand better.  Anyway, she is a good storyteller and he recommended her to keep studying more.

The general evaluator was TM Ya.  Word of the Day was nice.  It is not a familiar word but the meaning is clear and it is easy to use.  Table topics were nice.  We had variety of answers.  The evaluation was organized.  His explanation was structured because he explained reasons.  TM NS had triple roles.  We should distribute roles for each member.
