` Bilingual Public Speaking Club – Pilot session

Bilingual Public Speaking Club – Pilot session

The Japan Society and the Association of Speakers Clubs (ASC) are delighted to organise the first bilingual Japanese-English public speaking club in the UK. The club is open to all people who would like to improve their skills at speaking in Japanese or English and to learn techniques and tricks to expand their communication and presentation abilities. Good knowledge of Japanese and English is desirable but all levels are welcome to join us. Japanese native speakers and students of Japanese or English are encouraged to participate!

In this pilot session, we will explain and demonstrate the ASC method and its step by step programme to develop the confidence and skills to succeed in speaking in public. The first part will be in English and after a short break the second part will follow in Japanese. Participants will follow the ASC Speakers Guide introductory programme, which involves progressing through speech construction, using gestures and body language, using your voice and using humour to effectively get your point across, in addition to getting detailed feedback from evaluators at each step.

Different roles are required (speakers, evaluators, helpers) both in English and Japanese, so please let us know if you would like to be considered for any of these roles (more information will be provided in this case). Or you can just come and observe the event and participate in future sessions.

We are grateful to Graham Street, and members of the ASC public speaking club at Nomura International for their encouragement and assistance in setting up this group.
