This course will assist your child to speak more confidently - this is helpful for everyday life and also for school, and public speaking. Your child deserves to be heard, and this interesting class will help to make it happen.
Some of us find it easy to speak up with confidence, and some people find it tricky. Everybody deserves to be heard though, and this one-time class will give you some tools to become more confident when you are speaking. It can help in everyday conversations - our interactions with friends, family and school - and it can also help for those moments where we need to speak publicly: things like public speaking, show and tell and debate. You will learn something here if you already enjoy speaking up, and even if you find it a bit scary sometimes.
This course is designed to do one thing. It will make you feel more confident to speak up and be heard. It is normal to feel a little anxious about speaking in front of a big group of people, but the techniques that we will learn will make it a bit easier. Rather than looking at ‘what’ we are saying, this class focuses on how we say it and how we feel when we say it.
