This course is aimed at 13 to 15 year olds who would like to learn to communicate effectively and confidently and will give students the chance to practice their debate, writing and public speaking skills through a series of workshops and classes. Through a combination of activities, guest speakers and field trips, students will learn the basics of argumentation, rebuttal, public speaking, news reporting and speech writing. Each participant will be able to present their ideas in a confident and convincing manner.

Public Speaking & Debate course is suited for students interested in studying law, political science, economics, communications or journalism at a University level and those whom have an interest in learning debating skills.

Academic content

This course is taught primarily through workshops designed to give students first-hand experience in public speaking and debating. Positive feed-back through fellow students and through tutors will give you greater command and confidence in all given tasks.

Students will be taught and given techniques:

  • in fundamentals of effective oral delivery including body control, use of voice and diction, and analysis of audience
  • about the importance and 'art' of preparation in public speaking and debating
  • regarding the selection and arrangement of material and use of transitions and theoretical effects in making brief speeches to inform, persuade, or entertain
  • how to structure ideas and arguments in their speeches in a sustained, persuasive and sophisticated way and support them with precise and relevant examples

Students will also be taught how to read, discuss, and write about speeches in order to interpret and evaluate the impact of ambiguities, subtleties, contradictions, ironies, and incongruities in a text. They will analyse the way in which clarity of meaning is affected by the patterns of organization, hierarchical structures, repetition of the main ideas, syntax, and word choices in the text.

Workshops

Throughout the course students will be required to give at least seven formal speeches.  These speeches are designed to give students experience in a range of speaking situations.  Speech class is unlike many other classes in that it directly applies to students’ lives both now and in the future.

LITE Regal uses the Model UN to encourage Public Speaking and Debating. Please visit https://www.unausa.org/global-classrooms-model-un/how-to-participate/model-un-preparation/public-speaking

Students will be asked to join and participate in Model UN Conference. A current and worthwhile topic / policy will be chosen by the Chairman to be discussed eg:

A Safer World – Nucleaur Disarmarnament and Non Proliferation

A Fairer World – Securing Human Rights for All

Students on model UN workshop

Public speaking is one of the most important skills students will use as a Model UN delegate. Students will need to convey their member state's positions, help build consensus and formulate resolutions. Usually, the length of time a delegate is allowed to speak is set by the conference organizers. Delegates can make a motion to increase or decrease the time allotted to each speaker. If another delegate seconds the motion, then the committee will vote on changing the speaker's time.

Good experience with A2 revision classes after recommendation by a friend as I had to make up for gaps in knowledge. Took Edexcel Chemistry Physics and French. Improved on my predicted grades and teacher pushed us with homework and sample examinations every day. French teacher was very patient. Only negative is classroom for physics was quite small and internet kept on dropping.

The medical course was not what I imagined, It was better than I expected. I went on the Medical as I would like to be a doctor one day, and this summer camp was recommended by a friend in Lebanon. However the course was vastly different to the basic science done at other places and was very intriguing and has also made me very passionate about a career in medical science. The tutor Rebecca was also very friendly and so easy to understand that it might as well be basic science. Thanks Rebecca!

The place was fantastic, teachers were very thorough with their explanations. I had engineering and my tutor Gao Wei was very energetic with the subject and had an infectious attitude, he was easy to keep up with and understand. I loved my engineering course.

Sports activities were great as the facilities and equipment available were very good and effective. The tasks set out were effective to either determine or effect a variable of the student, such as endurance or strength of a certain limb or muscle. The tasks set were easy to understand and were fun to complete. Overall these activities were very effective and worth while.

The summer course was excellent as I found out many things unknown to me at this course. Also the great activities done after the course for the day were very engaging and entertaining. The activity leader Mr Lucas was social and easy to get along with allowing for the other attenders to engage with each other if the activity required group work.

At first I was nervous to go to this place as I didn't know any of the teachers or any of the other attenders. However the English course I was set to do was very effective as teacher Doris was very kind and patient,that allowed me to get settled in and get engaged with the work. There were many scenarios where I was not confident or didn't know the answer and she was patient for me to try for the correct answer and if I didn't get the answer she would drop hints for me to use.

My son was here last summer. He enjoyed the Business Enterprise course and loved the different activities after class. Great welfare too. Accommodation was suitable, and food was OK. Overall, a good experience that helped him get through the first semester of college.

My daughter is very satisfied with this institute. She took the Sumer Intensive English Course. We are immigrants from India and I want her to be able to speak the language with confident. She loved the program and the tutors, I can tell now that she feels more secure when talking to others and her writting skills have improved as well.

The experience of a lifetime. I took the LAW SCHOOL PREPARATION SUMMER COURSE here in Lite Regal, mainly because I needed some help with my stage fright. It gives me a lot of anxiety just by talking in public, and as a future lawyer I need to overcome that; the tutors here in this institute gave me the real tools and made me feel more secure about myself, so I won't have any problems when I begin my career. From the students to the tutors, they all helped me a lot and I am grateful to them.

I was home sick at first, but after a few days I made many friends - up to this day we still talk to each other... The staff were friendly, especially the activities leaders. Activities coordinators were the best, we had such a wonderful time learning and having fun on outdoors activities. I will never forget this experience at Lite Regal, best summer course ever.

I did the Film Academy Summer Course, and I absolutely LOVED it. I got my hands on practical training in all aspects of film production, including camera work, lighting, script writing, editing. The tutors and lecturers are professionals in the Film Industry and they taught me a lot of things. I did the course in London and I got the chance to do a field excursion to the Warner Bros Studio Tour; experience was ace... Campus was great and I did a lot of friends. I would take the course again if I've got the chance.

Couldn't ask for more. My son was impressed with this course, not only it was educational but also very cultural. He took the Global Leadership course, I guess he wants to be an entrepreneur just like his father. He learned so much, I know now he is ready for College. Thank you Lite Regal.

Nice institute. I attended the Creative Writing course last summer, 2 weeks in London. Good instructors, the people were nice and you learn a lot. I give it 4 star because the food was OK and the wifi sometimes was a little slow, but other than that I was a great experience.

My daughter took the 4 week Medicine course in London. Her dream has always been being a world famous M.D., but before she started applying for the long career, I wanted her to be inspired and to see if that was her truly vocation... She LOVED the course here at Lite Regal Education, she always tell me that thanks to this institute she rested assured that she was following the right track. I am greatly grateful with this institute, they did their best in providing my daughter with the tools so she could finally make up her mind.

The school is friendly and there are lots of activitys'. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn but also enjoy learning. I applied for 6 summer schools, but out of every single one this was my first choose for so many reasons. The wifi was dropping in the evening on few occasions. When I complained about the wifi they told me that the router was far away from the room. But luckily they gave my me a better room.
