DEBATE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING

DEBATE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING

 

 

  1. WHAT IS DEBATE AND PUBLIC SPEAKING?

Nowadays, debating is considered one of the most essential skills for students to acquire. Additionally, public speaking skill is also fundamental and necessary in a modern education system. Especially, in this globalization era, debating and presenting in English has become more critical than ever.

We are facing an undeniable fact that many Vietnamese students are just rote learning with a lack of ideas, confidence and presentational ability together with vocabulary limitations. This leads to the current situation that most students find it hard to give an effective presentation; even university students have difficulty completing and defending their graduation thesis. Meanwhile, English is still being taught in a traditional way with high proportion for grammar compared to listening or speaking skills.

Understanding students’ limitations and parents’ worries, Stemhouse has worked out the Debate and Public Speaking program. With experienced teachers and interesting content topics, this program aims at helping students develop their debating skill and promote their ability to speak persuasively in front of the public.
