You will be very proud of him/her when you see your child engages an audience with a funny story that he/she creates!
Build your kid’s confidence and speaking skills with our weekly public speaking camps. Your child will be introduced to the basics of creative writing while building vocabulary, understanding analysis through writing, and creating their own unique writing style. Applying what they have learned, they will create a short story and present it in front of an audience. This camp activity is great for both shy and bold students. It will enhance teamwork between students and help each student hone their public speaking skills to engage the audience by maintaining eye contact, using various tones of voice, facial expressions, and body language.
