Membership requirements

Toastmasters membership is basically open to everyone who is 18 years of age and above. Some Clubs such as advanced Clubs limit their membership to those with certain English ability or experience in Toastmasters. However, Tokyo Metropolitan Toastmasters is a community Club and is open to everyone with the following conditions:
 
1. You are 18 years of age or above.
2. You have visited our meetings twice or three times. 
3. You are interested in improving communication and leadership skills using English and Japanese.

Toastmasters is not a language conversation school. Therefore, we assume that you have certain English abilities (the level that you can write about yourself and read it out for around five minutes). If you visited our meetings but prefer making speeches only in Japanese, or if you prefer a more Japanese-oriented Toastmasters Club than TMTMC, then you also have the option to visit another bilingual Club or Japanese Club.
