The Job's Script: (optional)
Toastmaster of the Evening, dear fellow members and the most welcome guests,
I am pleased to be the Ah-Counter of tonight's meeting. My job is to help you cure your bad habit of making “vocalized pauses”, They are the sounds like “ah, ” “er, ” and “em” or the words like “well…, ” “and…, ” “but…,” “so…,” and “you know…”.
I will count the numbers of the “Ahs” from your talk during each session. And also, I will give a report at the end of the Evaluation Session and tell you who is the Ah King or Ah Queen of tonight’s meeting.
Let’s welcome back to the Toastmasters of the evening.
Ah Counter Report: (optional)
General Evaluator, Ladies and Gentlemen,
This is the Ah-Counter's report：
Speaker's Name had 1 “ahs”, 1 “em” and 3 ”you know, you know”.
Speaker's Name had 2 “ahs”, 2 pause of “well, well”.
So, the Ah King (or Ah Queen) of tonight goes to Speaker’s Name.
You can also have No Ah-Words report:
Speaker’s Name , Speaker’s Name and Speaker’s Name had no Ah Words. Let’s give them a big applause.
Let’s welcome back to the General Evaluator.
