People who fluently speak English language, especially those who have the correct intonation, pronunciation, accent or even the pitch, are more likely to be admired by other people as compared to those who are not, thus their oozing self confidence. This is what I have learned from the free workshop conducted by Maros Training and Consultancy Services (MTACS) last May 28,2011, Saturday, which I have attended. It was held at the Blue Sky Suite Hotel in Cubao, Quezon City.
When my husband, Montsch, and I were invited to attend the free workshop, we immediately decided to go because we’re sure that we will be learning a lot, which fortunately, we did! As you know, I was once a call center agent for almost four years, but to tell you honestly, I was a little nervous to talk or speak in front of other people. This is perhaps the reason why I ended with my current “job” – blogging. In blogging, I don’t need to talk to people directly or “live”; all I have to do is write and post what’s on my mind. But of course, I know, someday, somehow, time will come that I need to stand in front of other people and do some talking.
Attending the workshop hosted by MTACS, which is owned by experts Roxy Ortiz and Marinel Mejia (both are skilled and highly qualified trainers), will be useful and will come handy anytime. At first, I thought the workshop will be boring like the rest I have attended, so I brought my iPod and my cool iPod accessory with me, just in case. Fortunately, I didn’t have time to use it since Maros Training and Consultancy Services (MTACS) is an expert in creating a friendly atmosphere in order for everyone to feel relaxed and at ease. In that way, learning will be easy and fun! Although they expected more or less 50 guests to attend (including those from Dep Ed , Department of Agriculture, Metro Bank, Accenture, Sykes, Culinary Best Sources Inc, Global Team Spaces Phils Inc.), we ended up less than 20 due to bad weather caused by heavy rainfall; nevertheless, the learning is incomparable. The topics and activities of the workshop taught us, the participants, on how to speak or communicate effectively with ease and confidence.
The learning was fun as we were taught various exercises or ways to enhance our communication skills. MTACS even taught us an interesting tongue exercise where we have to let out of our tongue then move it up and down several times. They also suggested that we do that 5 minutes a day for five days as this will somewhat “soften” the tongue so as to help us pronounce the world correctly. If we can do faster, the better, they added. Aside from the tongue exercise, we were likewise encouraged to utter this tongue twister:” The sixth sick shiek’s sixth sheep’s sick” – the hardest tongue twister in the world according to Guinness World of Records. Obviously, that was really hard, but try and try until you succeed, they say.
There were other fruitful activities done during the free workshop – thanks to the Major Sponsors Billy Gualberto, Kota Keluaraga, Luisa Biienvenida, Kangaroo Jack -Gateway Cubao, Sugar Rush Cakes and Pastries and Blue Sky Suites Hotel as well as, to Justin, Precious and PJ Mejia. In fact, we were surprised that more than 4 hours (from 1:00PM-5:30PM) has already passed and that the training has to come to an end. After the free workshop, I can say that I have enjoyed learning to improve my speaking/communication skills that I should be able to face and talk to a crowd more confidently next time.
Well, for those who are interested to improve your English communication skills, I am proud to recommend Maros Training and Consultancy Services (MTACS) as it provides the option to learn privately or in small groups, unlike others. Furthermore, they offer trainings for Language Enhancement, Personal Improvement, Career Advancement and other communications related trainings and workshops.
