1200 Minutes

TalkShop student1200 minutes or 20 hours is how long I spent my time in TalkShop. The time of learning, this is where I learned how to converse properly, articulate thoughts easily, project my voice and speech effectively and many more. The 1200 minutes seems like a short time, isn’t it? Thankfully, in a classroom setting, it seems like forever. I really wish it had been forever though because TalkShop has been a wonderful experience for me, I wish I could have extended but my parents’ wallet said “No” (kidding).

TalkShop molded me to be an important speaker and listener. Before entering the program, I thought I had 100% speaking skills, I thought I could talk to anyone easily and all that. But wow, was I wrong! Luckily after the 3-week course I knew in myself, I became twice as proficient and eloquent as before. TalkShop made me a better person. So I would like to thank TalkShop for all these, the guidance, friendship, and more.

And of course TalkShop wouldn’t be complete it weren’t for the students here. Classmates, friends I’m grateful and very happy I’ve met you all. I cannot fully express the joy and happiness you all shared with me. Even if it is not enough, I wish to say “Thank you.

I would like to end this with my usual deep words, “Every exit is an entrance to somewhere else. There will be new doors opening. We must be willing and confident to walk through them.

Thank you TalkShop for making us more ready.

    Hi TalkShop,

    The writings posted on this blog are really awesome. I did like to share my heartfelt appreciation towards the wonderful efforts taken. I am a Technical Writer and have been carrying out my profession for the past 7 months. I did my Bachelor’s in Information Technology and a pass-out of 2015. Though I graduated in a technical field, my passion was and is “Writing”. I would love to connect with your team and extend my support for any sort of assistance or even assignments in writing. I would enjoy to hear your comments.

    Thanks,
    Keerthna
