At Building Blocks Learning Centre, we understand the importance of superior communication skills. The motto for this course is to speak confidently by speaking well.

Nowadays, students are increasingly asked to make speeches or presentations in front of larger crowds such as classmates or at recitation competitions. However, the idea of speaking in front of a group of people is quite intimidating. Moreover, recent studies show, that the underlying reason why adults fear public speaking is that they never learned how to feel relaxed in front of a crowd as kids.

The ability to master Public Speaking is a fundamental aspect everyday life. Like anything else, public speaking, presentation and communication is not learned in a day but through a continuous process. By doing so, one has the possibility to develop the necessary skills to become a powerful speaker.

Whether you want your child to speak with confidence, participate in speaking competitions or recitations, this course is the right choice.  At Building Blocks, we offer programs suitable for all ages.
