TM Naina from Mumbai recounts her experience with grammar lessons as a child in this script for the role of a Grammarian. She makes a great point explaining how and why the role of Grammarian in Toastmasters is so effective. Read her submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
We all learnt grammar in school but wouldn’t you admit that it wasn’t any fun. Lessons after lessons on one aspect of grammar after another. Examples with no context, despite knowing that the best way to learn anything is to have fun while doing so. This is what we do in Toastmasters. Every meeting in Toastmasters has a grammarian whose job is to listen to you while you are delivering a speech and keep track of grammatical errors made. This way when I as the Grammarian today will present my report, you will have all the right context and learn Grammar while we have fun in the meeting.
I am also supposed to give you the Word of the Day. It’s “Amity”
It’s a noun and it means “Friendly relations”
An example of a sentence using the word is
“We live in amity with our neighbours”
I hope everyone uses this word to the maximum in our meeting today. I will be back with my report towards the end of the meeting.
Thank you so much TM Naina for this submission.
