Academic Experience

Key Points

Small class sizes ensure that each student receives individual attention from their tutors, providing a learning experience which is unique to their needs. This close proximity between students and teachers fosters close relationships and a supportive environment, which builds confidence amongst the young learners and encourages them to succeed.
 
Teachers challenge students to achieve to the maximum of their potential, and set milestones and goals for each student, with constant evaluation. This sets the pace for each learner to surpass their academic expectations and achieve more than they thought possible.
 
In tandem with the development of oratory skills, the course piques the intellectual curiosity of the learners by exposing them to a range of authentic sources and current topics, which in turn develops their critical thinking skills as they analyse and debate these contemporary issues.
 
The mix of nationalities in the classroom and the wide range of materials covered creates an international outlook amongst students, broadening their horizons and exposing them to new ideas, cultures and ways of thinking.

Programme

The Future Orator

30 hours of tuition per week. For learners aged 15 - 17 years with a B2 level or higher.

This course puts talk at the centre of the curriculum. Students study the oracy skills necessary to speak more eloquently, articulate ideas and thoughts, influence others through talk, collaborate with peers and have the confidence to express their views. Often, universities and employers argue that students are ill- equipped with these oral skills and this course directly addresses those concerns to help students find their influential voice in their future learning, careers and life in general. The course is assessed using the University of Cambridge Oracy Skills Framework.

  • • Discussion Points
    Developing discussion skills (Speaking skills & active listening). Students discuss current issues after stimulus from online media, video, news stories, etc. The tutor helps the students extend and clarify their ideas, encouraging others to challenge and question appropriately.


    • Presentations and Public Speaking
    Here students will prepare for different presentation scenarios (Powerpoint presentations, Pecha Kucha, Documentary, video blog, etc.) using unscripted and scripted, planned and impromptu delivery styles.


    • Drama
    The use of drama allows students the opportunity to practise and experiment with the physical aspects of communication such as body language and voice projection using scenarios from real life such as settling a dispute, making a pitch, conveying an emotion, etc.


    • Debating contemporary issues
    Students learn how a debate is structured and contest an issue or policy. Students think about aspects and perspectives that they may not have previously considered-sometimes having to argue against their own personal view, it encourages them to speak strategically and to create a persuasive argument.


    • An educational field trip
    Students will research a place to visit and, after doing so, they will present their findings and contrast them with their own culture.
