Power Speaking is an intense and challenging ESL program that focuses on helping students increases their confidence and English public speaking abilities as well as building, developing and using new vocabulary. Each 4-week block focuses on one type of speech in which new speaking skills and new vocabulary are introduced and practiced.
Every morning, students participate in an extended facilitated discussion, followed by a class-wide debrief. Every Friday students do a longer, video-recorded speech that is used for peer and self-analysis. Students receive grammar and pronunciation error correction constantly with verbal and written feedback from the instructor on each major speech that they do. After every major speech, students will also receive written feedback from their classmates.
