Public speaking, debate and presentation:
Public speaking teaches command of the English language, delivery, diction and expression. Students will be able to use their knowledge in order to eloquently articulate themselves.
- Young learners: Through poetry, drama and literature, they will learn how to enjoy the basics of communication. We aim to break down the barriers that prevent under-confident children from speaking up. The fun courses may involve arts and crafts, group presentations and a variety of methods that will spark their interests. By introducing your children to public speaking at a young age you will give them a variety of experiences and self-confidence.
Intermediate learners: Continuing with poetry, drama and literature, students will hone their skills and start to implement their ideas. Now, their reasoning and interpretation can be expressed in a lively and enthusiastic way. This course will motivate your child to get involved in and enjoy some challenging and rewarding activities.
Advanced learners: We will look more closely at language use. Students will look at aspects of advanced debate, interview and presentation skills.
Topics covered will be:
The theory and practice of debating
