Have you ever stood up on a stage and delivered a speech in front of hundreds of people? Or better, have you presented your project document on Zoom to certain key people?

Will this course help my child become confident?
The main objective of the course is to build confident leaders. We work on three levels, first help the child prepare the speech content, then practise with voice modulation with physical aspects and then finally perform and learn to manage pre-performance anxiety and overcome their stage fright.
Will you give my child practice material?
To help your child practice the concepts that they have learnt in their sessions, we provide additional learning materials. You can find this in the ‘My Courses’ section.
What if my child forgets what is introduced in the class?
We provide notes after every session for the child. You will also get to watch the session recordings after the session, in case the child wishes to recap any concepts. You can find these extra materials in the ‘My Courses’ section.
Will the course cover vocabulary, writing and grammar?
We will definitely help children structure their thoughts and write a good speech. However we won't be teaching the children to read or write or focus exclusively on vocabulary. The focus will be preparing the children to perform on a wider stage with confidence.
