In Brussels, I recently had the opportunity to visit BLACK FOREST TOASTMASTERS, a German-English bilingual club funded in 2006.
I want to thank all the Black Forest Toastmasters´ members their welcome; THANK YOU! I felt part of the group. It was great fun to participate in improvisations and a big challenge to accept the grammarian role.
For those who still do not know it, I should mention that it is possible to visit the clubs within the Toastmasters International network and participate in their meetings. It is an enriching experience and a great way to meet people from other cities or countries who share the interest in improving communication and leadership skills.
Another aspect that called my attention was the fact that their meetings are bilingual German-English. They use both languages to an equal degree. Each participant chooses the language to communicate. It is a great fun as well as a good exercise to improve the English or German practice.
I enjoyed the experience and I want to visit them again next time I go to Brussels.
Greetings to all
