ESL Public speaking in English-

Speaking in front of an audience is always difficult...

Who participates in the program?

Most of the participants are professionals who are required to speak English at work or school. They have limited experience in performing in front of an audience and their English is good (even very good) but far from being a mother tongue. Most of them also suffer from mild to moderate fear of crowds (for those suffering from severe fear of crowds it is better to start with a fear of crowds course)

In addition, the group has new immigrants and foreign residents in managerial positions who are required to speak in front of an audience and their Hebrew is too weak to participate in Hebrew courses.

And who is the guide? And how is his English?

The course is taught by the CEO and founder of the public speaking school, Guy Yariv. He has 25 years of experience teaching public speaking and treating stage fright.

His English is excellent, but not a native language: Guy was twice ranked first in the European Championship for speakers of English as a foreign language (2002, and 2004), a product of a prestigious high school in the USA and a stay as a Hebrew teacher at a summer camp.

How is the course structured?

The public speaking course in English is intended for Israelis with reasonable English (ie - not a native language) who need to appear in front of an audience in English. The course combines training in the art of speaking together with building fluency and self-confidence in the English language.

The course is based on the assimilation of English through a large amount of practice in front of an audience under close guidance. The practice is possible thanks to relatively long lessons (4 hours per session) in which full assimilation in English is achieved.

Practice is based on speaking in front of an audience in a variety of simulations from the business world - committee discussions, teamwork, presentations, negotiations, debates and more. Each exercise includes a theoretical explanation of persuasion techniques and the manners accepted abroad in this field. After that, all participants practice in front of an audience (no excuses and no evasions), and after each exercise each participant receives detailed personal feedback with recommendations for improvement for next time.

The public speaking course is intended for Israelis who speak reasonable English (ie- not native speakers) who need to talk to an English-Speaking audience. The course combines training in rhetoric with improving flow and self-confidence using English.

The course's aim is achieved through intensive practice in front of a live audience under personal guidance and coaching. This amount of exercises is accomplished thanks to long sessions (4 hours per session) in which complete immersion in English is achieved.

The practice sessions conform to speaking to an audience under a variety of business-related scenarios: committee discussions, team work, presentations, negotiations and debate. Every exercise begins with a briefing on the persuasion techniques involved and the etiquettes relevant to the practiced business situation. After the briefing all the participants practice live (no exemptions, no excuses...) and then each participant receives a detailed and personal feedback reports, complete with recommendations for the next public speaking exercises.
