Product Description

The importance of learning Debating & Public Speaking at a young age

Debating & Public Speaking helps to develop fundamental critical thinking skills and the ability to make well-structured and reasoned arguments. It does allow children to participate confidently in a relevant conversation or even when delivering a presentation in any given environment. Nowadays, it is essential for children to learn how to put an argument together, how to listen and tolerate other people’s opinions, how to structure a counter-argument and how to put an argument forward with an aim to succeed in an increasingly competitive world.

 

Academic impact

Debating & Public Speaking helps children to consistently develop and improve the four fundamental English skills: speaking, listening reading and writing. Children start to acquire, understand and use new vocabulary that would eventually help to communicate in a more assertive and convincing manner. Equally, debating can also help children to improve their organisational and research skills which might also have a knock-on effect on their academic performance.

 

Extra-curricular impact: the development of skills for life

Over the last five years, we noticed that parents tend to be more focused on consistently getting their children to develop solid skills that would enable them to communicate in a clear, structured and concise way. Most parents appear to be eager to get their children to develop their speaking skills and ability to express themselves verbally in front of a group which also helps to build confidence, resilience and teamwork.

The emphasis is on fun, yet we inspire learning about concepts through dialogue and questioning.

 

Topics include:

Effective critical thinking. Elaborating an argument, putting forward an argument, debating, negotiating and deconstructing an opposition argument. Developing dialogue and conversational skills. Persuasive techniques. Statement and connectives. Discussion and Decision making. Structuring a speech. Public Speaking techniques.
