Speaking with confidence - High School Classes
Challenging demands faced by students
Does your teenager feel shy participating in conversations?
Does your child have difficulty making friends?
Does your child have trouble making presentations and speaking in class?
Students transitioning from Primary to High School and then to Universities have to navigate many important social, emotional and physiological changes
They have to adjust to new surroundings, become familiar with new teachers and peers, learn new ways of working, and make sense of the rules and routines that operate in their classes.
e.g.English may be someone’s first and native language, but despite learning the language from birth, not everyone is able to vocalise their thoughts cohesively and seamlessly. Perhaps when the opportunity is there to speak up, they are so nervous that they may blank out!
Fortunately, our programs are tailored to anyone regardless of language experience. Because there is always opportunities towards become better and best.
