Every grammatical error you make increases the odds of your audience misunderstanding your message or misdirecting their focus or worse misjudging the intent of your entire speech. That’s three misses in your speech you can easily overcome by simply being careful of your language. That is why every session in Toastmasters has a Grammarian. As the Grammarian for today’s session, my role is to appreciate the good usage of language but more importantly correct any error in grammar or pronunciation so that the only thing missing in your speech is language errors.

Thank you so much TM Shweta for this submission.
