The art of public speaking.
FDT Speech program
Master the essential skill of public speaking.
Public speaking is among peoples’ greatest fears. FDT’s Speech program can help students to overcome this fear and to have fun while doing so! Unlike Debate, public speaking isn’t always about proving a point. Instead, our Speech classes teach students how to become comfortable with preparing to write, edit, and deliver speeches for a variety of purposes. Our students and instructors have competed in, and won, many Speech competitions, while several have gone on to represent Canada at the World’s Individual Public Speaking and Debate Championships. Being able to persuade people through public speaking helps with interviews, paper writing, research, presenting, and so much more. Perhaps most importantly, Speech helps students to enhance their critical thinking abilities that allow debaters to reach high levels of success in all aspects of their lives.
PUT THEORY TO PRACTICE
With many of our students making Team Canada Speech and travelling around the globe to South Africa, Australia and Lithuania, our successes prove our ability to foster a love and talent for public speaking. Speech students are encouraged to compete in provincial, national and international public speaking competitions.
FDT Speech Program
FDT offers specialized private Speech lessons to teach students essential skills like writing speeches and presenting with confidence, to more advanced skills like dramatic interpretation and how to deliver impromptu speeches. These one-on-one lessons provide students with an opportunity to work on individual challenges, receive unique attention for longer periods of time, and prepare to attend various public speaking competitions held throughout the year.
Upon speaking with our Admissions Director, students are placed with a private instructor that is best suited to their learning needs, schedule and budget.
