Meeting Report (#316) March 13,2019

 

[日本語セッション]

暖かな日差しに恵まれましたが、夕刻よりは冬の肌寒い天気の一日でした。

定刻にTM JSが開会・ゲスト紹介(4名)を行いTMOEのTM NKさんにコントロールを渡し 和やかに本日の例会がスタートしました。

今夜の言葉「挑戦」がTM BHさんより提示されました。TM BHさんはインドの方ですが White Boardにゆっくりですが 漢字で「挑戦」と書かれたのがchallengingで印象的でした。

 

<日本語スピーチの部>

準備スピーチ#1  TM RTさん   (time 7’08”)

Pathways: Innovative Planning Lv1 Evaluation and Feedback

タイトル 「スケールアップ」

幼稚園時代より「英語好き」で、ラジオ英会話/BBC放送etc. 永く英語勉強続けてきたが、この所英語力アップに行き詰まりを感じていた。 最近オーディオ・ブックを聞き続けていると急に聞き取り能力がスケールアップしてきたと。それも二倍速で聞いているからだと分析、「速聴」であると。特に、「母国語で聞く」、「集中して聞く」、「自分の興味ある分野を聞く」のが効果高いであろうと、ゆったりとした雰囲気で説得力あるスピーチでした。

論評者(Evaluator)は TMさん  (time 2’54”)

スピーチタイトルと内容・構成が上手くマッチし聴衆の心を鷲掴みにしていた。しゃべり方では抑揚が上手く効いていて声のインパクトが伝わってきた。又、独特の雰囲気(佇まい)が有って 背筋が伸びる感があった。

準備スピーチ#2 TM KSさん   (time 7’41”)

CC#9 「パワフルな説得」

タイトル 「ネガティブフィードバックについて、考えよう」

ネガティブ・フィードバックには二通りの効果があ り、一つは相手の気持ちを萎縮させるもの、もう一つが相手の修正を促すものであると。 例として、マイクのファウリング修正に使う「負帰還」。又、先日のM-1グランプリで発生した上沼恵美子さんの論評について詳しく説明し、分析された。終盤では、役に立つ論評を行う事、それをしっかりと(被論評者に)伝える事が肝要であり、受け取る方も しっかりと受け止める必要があると。

具体例を上手く引用しながら論理を展開されていました。

論評者(Evaluator)は TM ATさん  (time 3’12”)

タイトルそのものに興味を惹かれ、常にロジカルに話をされるやり方に感心した。

又、タイトルは話す内容をしっかり示しており、電気信号からM-1グランプリへ話を繋いで行く巧みさを感じた。M-1グランプリの例では、素晴らしい分析であったが、それでは どうしたら良かったのか? もう少し話をして欲しい気持ちもある。

 

総合論評のTM AOさんより、今日の言葉の「挑戦」は使い易かったのか 多くの方が使っていたこと、「速聴」は初めて聞く言葉であった点、スピーチでは具体的な固有名詞を使った方が説得力あると思うとのコメントありました。
