Top reason why I never felt ToastMasters my cup of tea from the bottom of my heart (even though I acted as their 卧底 at rolia from time to time)!
It is fake rather than real...fake presentation/discussion to/with pretended audience. Personally, I like real-world stuff, and learning by doing, in work or life. So, a presentation that is required at work, a conference call that needs your deep involvement...or, join the condominium resident committee/board of directors, or find some voluntary activities that help build my communication skills. -hsl(胡司令) 2012-4-27
