We still have a few vacancies left for Semester 2. Sign up now before registration closes. We do not take in students in the middle of the semester and the next intake will be on January 2023. For parents who have put off registering their children for communication skills/public speaking classes, don’t delay any further, especially if your goal is to improve your child’s confidence and speaking skills. It is great if your child is doing well academically however if they cannot communicate well, those academic scores are not going to help with achieving great success in the future. So what are you waiting for? Sign up now before it is too late.
