Oral communication skill, however, is a skill every child should possess. All through their education, they are required to give regular class presentations. At both the PSLE and GCE O-Level examinations, the English Oral Examination contributes a large percentage to their overall English result.
For children who wish to secure a place in their desired school through the Direct School Admission (DSA), the DSA Interview is an extremely critical component of the selection process.
But what makes the DSA Interview especially challenging is that every school uses different criteria in their DSA Interview. To add to the complexity, the child is deeply aware of the importance of performing well at the DSA Interview– and this is an immense load for any 12-year-old.
their desired schools through the DSA.
Oral Examinations and DSA Interviews
Rather than focus on the possible questions that examiners and interviewers might ask, we nurture children to believe in themselves and to exude confidence in any encounter.
Our experienced voice coaches guide children in using techniques to overcome anxiety and to present a relaxed body language. We share strategies children can use to speak coherently, answer strategically and express themselves skillfully.
Through our one-to-one mentoring, we have empowered many children to structure replies that promote themselves positively, and to respond creatively with ‘baits’ that turn any oral examination or even the DSA Interview to their favour.
Whatever their past experiences in public speaking might have been, we shape every child to be the voice of an inspired student.
- Is your child not scoring well for the English Oral Exams?
- Does your child know how to prepare for the DSA Interview?
- Is your child struggling with the Stimulus-Based Conversation or Spoken Interaction?
- Does your child lack confidence?
- Does your child mumble?
- Does your child’s Presentation Skills concern you?
As parents we want to ensure the best for our children, and they work countless hours in school and tuition centers to improve their knowledge. However in a presentation how you say it counts more than 5 times of what you say. Therefore, the best presenting student gets higher grades than the most knowledgeable student. At Be The Voice Academy, we help your children to learn speak effectively and learn the presentation skills not only for their education but for their future career.
Our clients range from multi-national companies, small and medium enterprises, individual adults and students from 6 years old onwards.
