English language is a must have skill for me to reach my goal. Not just conversational level but the level of professional.
Even though I set my goal to be a speaker in 2011, I didn't get much progress until I met Bob Proctor.
Toastmasters was a good place to immerse myself with English. But it was not enough for me to close the gap between where I was and where I wanted to be.
During my four months stay in Hawaii, I saw a flyer on a window of the business school. It was about a NPO called Toastmasters. The flyer said that Toastmasters was a place for public speaking and leadership. The meeting was held in the school regularly.
To get the language skills, I planned to take a four months business course in Hawaii in 2011 so that I could improve my English skills and get business knowledge at the same time. It also helps maintain my green card status. I aimed three birds with one stone.
