Speaking opportunities, Winter 2019

Fellow Toastmasters

Are you looking for more speaking opportunities?
Every year, we get an invitation from the continuing education department to present one speech and one evaluation in front of a classroom.
Your audience are students who are learning English as a second language. These are students who are about to finish their program and are looking for more opportunities to continue practicing their English.
Many of the members of our club are English students who saw someone giving a speech in their classroom.
By giving a speech in one of these classrooms, you get points in your pathway program, you get to speak in front of a different audience and you get to give back to the community.
Here is the schedule of the spots available. For each spot, we need a speaker and an evaluator.
To volunteer, please contact Alain at
There are 6 sections of this advanced oral communication course. Here are the teachers and a list of preferred dates.

Patricia Jan. 30 6:15pm Room #1145
Sarah Feb. 9 10am Room #1091
Devaki Feb. 11 6:15pm Room #1261
Michael Feb. 12 8:30pm Room #1261
