Class experience

The learners will be able to develop excellent speeches with creative and great topics, be able to research and create adding supporting details or evidence for claims, and write several different speeches with different tones (informative, argumentative, etc.).
The learners will be able to move towards a mastery of delivery from tone, voice, volume, pitch, eye contact, hand gesture, and engage the audience through their speech.
The learners will be able to become comfortable with speaking in any context, build confidence, as well as overcome anxiety and nervousness.
