This script for the role of Grammarian by TM Shweta is absolutely on point. It’s a great way to convince anyone why the role of Grammarian in Toastmasters is so important as well as effective. To know more, read her submission below.
RELATED: How to do the role of Grammarian?
There are two ways to improve your grammar and language skills. One is to hire a tutor who would teach you the rules, give worn out examples and hypothetical situations that you will never face. The second way is to actually talk in the language as you would in usual circumstances, using normal words and real life scenarios and have a person correct you while you do so. Wouldn’t you agree that the second way is so much practical and effective? Thankfully in Toastmasters we follow this exact model. Every meeting has a grammarian whose role is to listen to you and correct any errors made while also appreciating the good usage of words phrases, quotes etc.
As the Grammarian today, it is also my role to enrich your vocabulary by giving you a word of the day. And the word of the day for today is “emulate”
It’s a verb and it means to match or surpass a person or achievement typically by imitation.
Examples of sentences using the words are –
I wanted to be a dancer. So I emulated the best in the business – Michael Jackson
Toastmasters is a great platform to learn public speaking by emulating famous speakers until you discover your style.
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 Shweta for this submission.
