What we're about

Black-Forest-Toastmasters ist ein Deutsch-Englisch-sprachiger Klub, in dem wir das Halten von Reden üben und unsere Führungsfähigkeiten verbessern. Der Klub wurde im Jahr 2006 gegründet. Wir nutzen beide Sprachen zu gleichem Anteil, damit sich unsere Mitglieder in der Sprache ihrer Wahl weiter verbessern können. Wir treffen uns jeden zweiten und vierten Dienstag des Monats. Gäste sind herzlich willkommen. Um Mitglied zu werden, ist mindestens das Level B1 des Europäischen Referenzrahmens nötig (sowohl für Deutsch als auch für Englisch). Unsere Mitglieder sind ein bunter Haufen: Manche arbeiten für Großkonzerne und die Europäischen Institutionen, andere sind selbständig, in Rente oder studieren noch. Einige sind preisgekrönte Redner/innen, andere haben just angefangen. Zehn verschiedene Nationalitäten pro Treffen sind keine Seltenheit. Black Forest Toastmasters ist mehr als nur ein Trainingsprogramm: Wir verstehen uns als eine Lerngemeinschaft und sind oft nach den Treffen noch in der Kneipe zu finden.

Black Forest Toastmasters of Brussels is a German-English bilingual Public Speaking club, founded in 2006: We use both languages to an equal degree, helping our members to improve their fluency and vocabulary in the language of their choice. We meet every second and fourth Tuesday of the month. Guests are always welcome. To become a member, at least level B1 (Common European Framework of Reference for Languages) is needed for both languages. Our members come from all walks of life. We work in multinational companies, international institutions or just for ourselves. Some of us have retired from paid work, others are still at University. Some are accomplished speakers, others have just started. You’ll easily find 10 different nationalities at a single meeting. Black Forest Toastmasters is more than a training program. As a learning community, we usually head on to a bar after our meetings and organize regular social events.
