We do this voting to ensure people are not joining Toastmasters for non-educational purposes (such as solicitation, retrieval of mail addresses and unauthorized use of our materials).
As long as your intention is to improve your communication and leadership skills at a minimum level of English knowledge, you are more than welcome to join VTMC regardless of occupation, nationality, gender or age (except that membership is restricted to 18 years of age and above).
Toastmasters is open to everyone of 18 years of age or more, who is interested in improving their communication and leadership skills together in a friendly and supportive environment.
In addition to that, our club requires members to have basic knowledge of the English language due to the nature of us being an English-only Toastmasters Club.
Toastmasters is NOT meant to be an English conversation school but a Club focused on improving English speech and leadership skills.
We are a Non-Profit Organization (NPO), where we learn through the feedback from other members instead of having a teacher in a classroom. The monthly due 2,000 Yen will cover the room fees and other operational costs. All Club officers fulfill their roles as volunteers.
It doesn’t matter if you cannot attend every time. For a private reason, there lots of members who join one time out of two or three occasions.
We expect continuous engagement will build up steady communication skill, rather than joining in very short period.
