Empower your child to express themselves articulately

DEBATING

Suitable for new and experienced debaters, Viva Voice Debating coaching provides a creative environment to learn fundamental debating and public speaking skills as well as techniques to further develop expertise.

Specialist tutors work with students on structuring an argument, critical listening and techniques for rebuttal.

A strong focus is on presentation style and use of voice in debating, and students receive resources to help them understand the concepts of matter, method and manner.

In addition to specialist coaching, Viva Voice also offers Debating workshops each January for primary and high school students.

PUBLIC SPEAKING

Our Speaking Skills™ coaching for students in years 3 –10 focuses on developing essential skills for effective speaking delivery.

Students learn how to plan, write and structure prepared and impromptu speeches, as well as strategies to reduce their reliance on notes. They also broaden their vocabulary, and practice using storytelling and rhetoric as language devices.

Viva Voice Public Speaking coaching produces students who are well prepared for public speaking competitions and oral presentations at school.

If your child would prefer a group environment, consider our Speaking Skills™ workshops that run in January each year and can also be delivered at your school.
