Public Speaking in the World-Language Classroom

Most speakers and presenters face varying levels of public speaking anxiety, even more so in a second or foreign language. However, our students are usually expected to present in front of others as if they were pros! This hands-on session focuses on research and practice to help the learner overcome the fear of public speaking. Techniques include impromptu speeches, the use of the body, voice, breathing, and speech writing. Teachers will become acquainted with useful tools that enhance their public speaking skills as well. Don’t miss it!
