Building Confidence In Speaking English
(A Special Program for Educators)
It is often lamented that students have very poor command of oral English. In my observation, the main reason for the poor command of oral English is the students' lack of confidence. When students lack confidence, they will hesitate to speak in English stopping them from acquiring valuable experience. The lack of experience results in low confidence, trapping students in a vicious negative reinforcing cycle. This special 1 day course seeks to share with educators techniques that have been proven effective in encouraging students to speak in English and thereby starting a positive cycle where students gain confidence.
The main objective of this course is to share with educators techniques which will encourage students to build their confidence speaking in English.
The course will apply adult learning principles to facilitate understanding, effectiveness and retention. 80% of the course consists of demonstrations, group and personal activities, which allow participants to learn, develop and practice key techniques.
The course will cover the following main topics:
Reasons for students not speaking in English
Techniques to encourage students to speak in English
