About the Green Heart Club
Situated in the heart of Europe, we are proud to take our name from this green and pleasant little country. Green Heart Toastmasters Club has flourished since its creation in 1996, allowing its members to effectively speak in public whilst having fun!
The People at Green Heart
The Green Heart Club is proud to have over 40 members, who come from all over the world. What's more, their backgrounds, ages and professions are as varied as the palette of nationalities. The club includes native and non-native English speakers, and we welcome guests, new members and members of other clubs to enrich our meetings.

Frequently asked questions: Meetings
What’s a typical meeting like?
The meeting is divided into three parts: prepared speeches, Table topics (impromptu speeches) and the evaluation/reporting section.
Can I attend as a guest?
Of course! Our meetings are open to everyone. You can visit us as many times as you want to see how our it works. We do not put pressure on members to join. Just check the meeting and show up at the next convenient date.
I’d like to come, but I’m afraid I’d have to speak. Can I just listen?
Our meetings are not only about speaking. Listening is also a valuable skill which we need to give feedback. Newcomers won’t be forced to speak if they don’t want to. If you just want to sit and listen, that’s okay!
Is my English good enough to participate?
Our members include many non-native speakers with varied levels of proficiency, so there’s really no need to worry. We also have native English speakers who point out common mistakes, however, always in a very positive manner.
