Course Overview

This 2-day program helps students speak with the confidence they need to succeed in high school. By providing them with a foundational understanding of good public speaking, this course both teaches the students the necessary elements of crafting an excellent speech, as well as a range of opportunities to practice their new skills in a welcoming environment.

As with all of our programs, class sizes are kept small to ensure that students have ample opportunity to practice their skills and to receive regular individualised feedback from one of our experienced coaches.


Experience Levels

Our Foundations of Public Speaking course is a beginner program for High School students.

It is designed for students with little (or even no) experience presenting in front of audiences, and is perfect for shy and confident students alike!

If your child has some speaking experience and you’re not sure whether the Foundations of Public Speaking or Experienced Public Speaking program is best for you, please get in touch and we’d be more than happy to discuss which is most appropriate for your child!


Main Objectives

Over this program, students will:

  • learn a number of techniques which students can use to help overcome their fears and prepare for formal speaking situations;
  • engage in a number of tasks that require them to prepare and present individual and group presentations;
  • be given extensive exposure to giving impromptu speeches; and
  • receive an introduction to academic English school speeches.


Should I repeat the Foundations of Public Speaking program?

If your child has already had a go at our Foundations of Public Speaking course (formerly our Public Speaking Pandas course), they should join our Experienced Public Speaking group – you can find more information about the Experienced Public Speaking program here!


Can I do both the Public Speaking and Debating holiday programs?

Students are more than welcome to undertake both the Foundations of Public Speaking and Foundations of Debating holiday programs.

Whilst students are able to develop their confidence and speaking skills participating in either, both are very different skills, and are taught in different ways. Please get in touch if you’re interested in learning more about the differences between public speaking and debating!
