Welcome to Nichibei Toastmasters, the one and only English/Japanese bilingual Toastmasters club in New York City.
We are confident that our club is the best place to learn highly effective communication and leadership skills in both English and Japanese in New York area, if not in the U.S..
To prove that, we have the following achievements by our fellow members over the last few years
2017 District 46 Finalist - International Speech Contest
2017 District 46 Finalist - Evaluation Contest
2016 Division B 3rd place winner - Table Topics Contest
2015 Division F 1st place winner - Humorous Speech Contest
2014 District 46 Finalist - International Speech Contest
2014 Division D 1st place winner - Humorous Speech Contest
2013 District 46 Finalist - International Speech Contest
And we produced one TEDx speaker (so far) who is included in the list above.
We highly value mutual support and put emphasis on individual goals and results. Effective communication leads to better understanding, it’s one of the key ingredients to thrive in professional life and for fulfilling life. Our members’ professionals include but not limited to: Scientists, Entrepreneurs, Business Consultants, Japanese Representatives (Chuzai-in), Designers, Beauty Professionals, Technologists, CPA / Financial Professional, International Professional Opera singer, Students and so forth. As mentioned, this is English/Japanese bilingual club, we warmly welcome those studying and would like to improve their Japanese. As you can see our achievements as non-native English speakers (except 2016 3rd place winner who is a native English speaker), we know how to acquire practical foreign language skills and we know what you’re going through. Also, we welcome anyone with any background, who wants to participate English sessions only.
We meet every 1st & 3rd Tuesdays 6:30pm at
548 Main Street, New York, NY 10044 (Roosevelt Island)
