Role of a Grammarian in Toastmasters

Hello everyone.

Language learning is an entire industry in itself worth billions. There are companies and websites dedicated to the exclusive task of helping you communicate fluently in any language you wish while charging you handsome money for a 3 to 6 months course.

Toastmaster lets you sharpen not just your public speaking skills or leadership skills but also your language skills at a fraction of the cost with better results. Which is why every Toastmasters meeting has a Grammarian whose sole job is to help you improve your English.

I am the Grammarian for today’s meeting. As a Grammarian today, I will keep a track of all the good usage of English, good phrases, words, idioms etc. and more importantly the not so good usage of English and incorrect pronunciations we well.

I am also supposed to give you the word of the day and the word of the day is GULLIBLE. It’s an adjective and it means – easily persuaded to believe something. Examples using the word may be

1) I was quite a gullible kid and believed my father when he said chocolate milk comes from chocolate colored cows.

2) An April fool’s day is a gullible person’s nightmare.

I hope all of you use this word to the maximum. I will keep a score and present my report at the end of the meeting.
