Post-PSLE Workshop – Public Speaking

Featured
The Art of Speaking

Workshops are a great way for students to learn speaking skills that will help them to deliver a speech in front of an audience. At J Carter Centre, we have been preparing students to speak publicly since 2008. Our students have been achieving wonderful results in the Trinity College London Communications Skills examination over the years and some have even gone on to represent their schools and our centre in speaking competitions. Although not every student wants to compete, learning the skill to speak confidently in front of others is a life skill that is necessary for today’s competitive society. These workshops have been designed into short courses where students can choose to focus on a specific area of speaking in a fun and engaging way. The skills they will gain in the workshops will also prepare them to present better in secondary schools.

Take advantage of PSLE Marking days to learn the Art of Public Speaking. Details of the workshop are as follows:

Art of Speaking – Overview

Holiday workshops are a great way for students to learn new skills in the area of performing in front of an audience or to excel in speaking festivals and competitions. At J Carter Centre, we have been preparing students for the Singapore Performing Arts Festival (SPAF) since 2017.

Students participate in different categories such as verse speaking, storytelling, impromptu speaking, public speaking, and many more. Our students have been achieving wonderful results at the festival over the years and some have gone on to represent their schools in speaking and debating competitions.

Achievements at speaking competitions are also a great way to build up a child’s portfolio for the DSA-SEC selection. Although not every student wants to participate in speaking competitions, learning the skill to speak confidently in front of others is always useful and a necessary talent in today’s competitive society. These workshops have been designed into short courses where students can choose to focus on a specific area of speaking in a fun and engaging way. The skills they have gained in the workshops will also prepare them for speaking competitions.

For the June school holidays, all workshops will be conducted Face-to-Face. All students will receive a video of their performance after the workshop. The details of the workshops are as follows:

Storytelling

Telling a story is a great way to learn how to perform to an audience and convey a message in an entertaining manner. Everyone loves to listen to a story and it is even better to be able to tell one with gusto. This workshop will teach students to learn to use vocal variety, facial expressions, and body language to bring a story to life for an audience.

Public Speaking

This is a life skill everyone should aim to master no matter the age. Speeches come in many forms but persuasive speaking is perhaps the most useful and necessary form of public speaking that we must all learn to do if we want to convince others to understand our point of view.  Students will learn to craft and deliver a persuasive speech to an intended audience. Verbal and non-verbal techniques will also be taught in this workshop.

3-Day Intensive Oral Exam Preparation for P5/P6.

PSLE Oral Communication consist of the following components:

  1. Reading
  2. Graphic Based Stimulus conversation

There are several  objectives which students must fulfill in order to achieve a good score:

  • read with good pronunciation, clear articulation and appropriate intonation in order to convey the information, ideas and feelings in a passage,
  • produce a well-paced, fluent reading of a passage,
  • express their personal opinions, ideas and experiences clearly and effectively in conversing with the examiner, and
  • speak fluently and with grammatical accuracy, using a range of appropriate vocabulary and structures.

In the case of Reading Aloud, candidates are assessed on their ability to pronounce and articulate words clearly, as well as their ability to read fluently with appropriate expression and rhythm.

For Stimulus-based Conversation, candidates are assessed on their ability to give a personal response to a visual stimulus and engage in a conversation on a relevant topic.

To help students achieve the above criteria during the examination, our 3-Day Intensive Workshop will teach them to use the PAFER- (P)  method when reading a passage and the OREOS – (V) method when holding a conversation on a topic.

We will have 3 Runs during the June school Holidays and 15 topics will be covered over 3 days. Last year, one of our topics appeared in the PSLE oral exams which pleased the students who attended the workshop.

The booking details are listed in the flyer below. Registration is on a ‘first come first serve’ basis. Once the classes are full, your child will be place on a wait-list and we will contact you if we are able to start another class.
