Public Speaking 1


Public Speaking 1 focuses on the fundamentals of speaking confidently in front of an audience.

This course contains 10 classes and is designed for families to be able to work through the material on their own. Parent involvement is highly recommended. Each class includes 2-4 short instructional videos, and each video is supported by an exercise, drill, or assignment. We recommend covering no more than one class per week. Less experienced students may work through the material at a slower pace. (Time requirement expectation: 60-90 minutes per week for students aged 9-19)

If you want weekly oversight from our master teacher (Win Heggem), please sign up for one of our Public Speaking 1 Guided Group Classes.
