Dear members and guests of Astana Toastmasters Club.
On 12th of April we had a special session, which we conducted in Kazakh language. This is tradition of our club to conduct session in our native language once in a year. Topic of the session was: “Kazakh Lovers Day: Ұят емес”. Our session was dedicated to Kozy-Korpesh and Bayan-Sulu lovers day, which is celebrated in Kazakhstan since 2011.
At that day we had three wonderful speakers:
Saltanat Tangbayeva, with her Project #1 from entertaining speaker manual – «Той басталды ауылда». She was talking about her brother’s wedding preparation.
Aiymgul Yklassova, with her project #7 from Competent Communications Manual – «Кешігу әдет пе, дерт пе?» She provided an example about respecting people’s time in Switzerland, where people come to the meetings with mathematical accuracy.
Aigerim Seitenova, with her project #2 from Competent Communications Manual – «Ұятмен феномені». Aigerim was talking about shame phenomenon in our country, and by the end of her speech she astonished participants of the meeting, citing the phrases from Abay’s poetry.
Table topic session was held by our VP Edication Saule Temirbayeva, who prepared 6 questions about love and Lover’s day.
Aiymgul Yklassova won “Best prepared speaker” award. Our guest Almas Turakov achieved “Best Table Topic Speaker” designation. Another guest Kuat Tleuzhanuly won “Best Evaluator” title.
I would like to thank every people, who came to our special meeting. Stay tuned with ATC.
