2.       ‘Thank you!’ given by TM Momoyo
Using statistics, she inspired us of how rarely we use the phrase ‘thank you’ in our lives and how we complicate our human relationship by overlooking its use, which tend to occur more often as we get older.
3.       ‘Next!’ given by TM Reiko (invited)
By her power of narrative, she described the hardship she had experienced in her English dialogues at her workplace to us. Her message reminded us of the challenge and opportunity we can find everywhere.

After the regular meeting, a ‘Speech Workshop’ was presented by TM Reiko (invited)
She explained us how she had organized her contest speech: structured three topics and subtopics that support each topic. She recommended us to write down speech in text and examine it well. She also referred to the use of narrative skill to do a double-take for the audience. Her talk was very informative. Thank you, Reiko-san.
