"The April rain, the April rain,
Comes slanting down in fitful showers,
Then from the furrow shoots the grain,
And banks are fledged with nestling flowers;
And in grey shawl and woodland bowers
The cuckoo through the April rain
Calls once again."

Mathilde Blind, April Rain

    I think that when you run a session you have to enjoy it too. Be yourself, have fun, don't be afraid of potential blunders and then the participants will just want to be part of it.
    It befits a man to be merry and glad
    Until the day of his death.

    I'm sure you would make a great host @mohit_singh. It can be a juggling act to ensure that everyone gets a chance to speak. Lots of open questions help, and picking on people to answer too. But if they feel shy to talk, that's okay as some members want to listen and will eventually pluck up courage to speak.

    Yay! Mohit! You rock! (Are you after another badge?)

    Make sure you choose a topic you are interested in. I very rarely run sessions on thermo nuclear power. :smile:
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,203 ✭✭✭✭
    Yes, I am always a greedy one for the badges @Lynne
    But for which badge you are asking?
  • zaiymurszaiymurs Posts: 398 ✭✭✭
    Actually i'm thinking of this kind of question sinced few weeks ago, i google and never expect i came across this question, and it was you haha. I'm thinking the same, worrying others might be get boring with some topics. :s
  • camellinacamellina Posts: 1
    hi everyone, i am new here and i want to post a question but i don't know how to
  • NatashaTNatashaT Posts: 866 Teacher
    @zaiymurs You would be suprised which topics people find interesting! If it´s a topic that made you think, or suprised you, it´s probably a topic that other people will like too. Everyone enjoys learning about new things, so even if it´s not a topic they have thought about before, it will be interesting for them.
  • zaiymurszaiymurs Posts: 398 ✭✭✭
    Thanks for your advice @NatashaT , i have to believe in myself :)
  • mohit_singhmohit_singh Posts: 2,203 ✭✭✭✭
    You Can believe on me as well @zaiymurs :D :D

    I am kidding. I know you would be a great host. Just tell me when are you hosting Buddy? I will be there to make you feel comfortable. As I feel uncomfortable with new people. When I am hosting with my closed one(Regular member) In LESC, I feel that I am at best. Because I know whatever mistakes I will do they are not going to mind it at all.

    I believe in you @mohit_singh , as you're permanent host now. Unfortunately i'm no longer in LESC, are you still getting nervous during your own session?

    It will be held tomorrow.

    There is no nervousness anymore now but I feel a slight pressure just before the session. If the members remains interactive, the 2 hour session just flows like minutes and vice versa.
    It's the responsibility of a host to make session interesting and interactive.

    Hello Bhai, I think I can suggest two words but very useful.

    Be Proactive.


    And I do believe you possess this trait my Dost in handling sessions. ;)

    @Khalied I agree. But actually you were lucky to have teachers who encouraged you to speak. Though, there are a lot of cases when a teacher just ignores those students who can't express themselves because of different reasons. And in such circumstances it's quite difficult to study and to acquire good speaking skills.
