025) The Imperfect Speaker: Public Speaking Skills

The imperfect speaker is an individual who is driven by continuous improvement, not perfection. If you would like to learn skills to speak more confidently and effectively in conversation, interviews, presentations, or any group setting, this course is for you. Anyone with an interest is welcome, including beginners and higher level ESL learners. Each participant will be respected and gently encouraged to speak during the interactive exercises. We will explore how to focus on your audience’s needs, how to use your voice to keep things interesting, how to tell stories that make impact, and much more. The final class will be devoted to participants using what they have learned to deliver a short speech to the group.
