Before a toast or a speech on an event like a wedding or a birthday people need to calm down and get quiet. You can use this sample of a glass that is being clinked to get everybody’s attention. After that the glass can be raised and the toast can be made. It is common in many countries all over the world to clink glasses before a toast speech. Usually people use another glass or a metal object like a knife, a fork or a spoon to hit the glass and to make some noise with the glass and start with the toast/cheers afterwards.
