Our two-day trainor was a Filipina, probably on her late forties. I was supposed to be proud knowing that a kabayan is heading a computer training program for nurses, but sad to say, I feel the other way around. She had difficulty speaking the English language. Her grammar was most of the time incorrect, and more often, she does not finish her sentences and left the listeners hanging in the air. She talks very slow and her discussion was not at all lively.
I am no good public speaker too, I admit that. But she accepted this task of speaking to a multi-cultural audience, who more often than not, speaks very fluent English with all the accents and all, she should take time to study the language, and read a lot on public speaking.
I think I should admire her guts for taking the courage of speaking to a non-pinoy audience, knowing that she can not speak straight English. She tried her best though, and I think this made her way to reach the position she is enjoying now. Okay, I’m proud of her now…
After the sessions, the guys agreed to check out Al Falah Mall. We have not been there, so we decided to visit the mall while we have extra time in our hands. We knew going out together like this would be very difficult in the future, when our schedules would be most of the time conflicting.
I might do my party on June 26, instead of the 28th, because I will be working night duty on that day. It’s also better since the 26th falls on a Thursday, which is the start of the weekend here (like Friday back home).
I think I need to prepare a checklist for the party so I won’t miss anything. I’m already a pro in coordinating events so I’m sure I will be able to hold it without much worries. I think I should try the events organizing business, what do you think? Hmmm….
