In preparing for the future, it is important that students not only know which words and tenses to use, but they need to know how to articulate them.
The allocation of marks in the O-Level oral component alone constitutes 20% of the total assessment. Over the years, there has been a growing emphasis on the oral component of language examinations. Excelling in the written components of the English examination alone isn’t sufficient. Students are expected to be proficient communicators. If you break down the time taken versus the marks allocated for the English examination, you will find that the Oral component takes up the highest allocation, in terms of percentage allocated per minute of examination time – as high as 2% per minute for Oral, versus 0.22% to 0.4% per minute for the other papers.
Speaking well not only makes the difference between passing your Oral Examination, and passing it well, it is also a life-skill that will stay with you throughout your future career.
The ‘Speaking Well – Secondary School Oral Program’ will help students understand the difference between diction and articulation, project confidence and open the door to a successful future. Make people want and enjoy listening to you.
Upon successful completion of the course, students will be able to:
- Speak more clearly and have improved articulation
- Improve on the smoothness of the delivery of their speech
- Understand their “instrument” how to better use it
- Be better public speakers
- Be confident
