Have you ever stood in front of a group of people and stuttered your way through a speech? Sweating? Heart racing? Breathing so heavily that all you can hear is your breath rather than your words? Are you crippled by nerves? Do you know your niche - are an expert - but are crippled by fear, nerves, and terror at the thought of speaking in public? Do you want to improve your skills so you are taken seriously? So you can be seen as the expert you really are? This is the course for you! Using practical and interactive workshops, you will use exercises to help to improve your public speaking skills. We will also look at the theory behind public speaking. With the world-changing, public speaking skills still remain a necessity for almost every profession. We follow the LAMDA syllabus and you will have the opportunity to take exams and earn UCAS points, or take the course to improve your skills and knowledge - the choice is yours! You don't need any prior experience, just a proactive attitude and willingness to learn. Please note that I will have to adjust the price per student if the minimum number is not reached.
Please bring at least one of the following with you to the sessions: - a monologue - a speech - a poem - a presentation - any other piece of writing There is some practise/rehearsal required in your own time and there will be homework if you choose to take the LAMDA exams.

- What about the Teacher?

Each Learned.Live teacher is awarded a 4 star review for every one of their courses we have approved, in line with our assessment. This is why some teachers will display more than one 4 star review from Learned.Live if they have had multiple courses rigorously assessed by our team. We would not approve a course application if we did not feel it warranted a default 4 star review. Teacher star ratings are an average of each of their courses star ratings and will become modified as more students review their course(s) over time
