We are Public Speaking Team!
Public Speaking Team, which was founded in 2008, aims to provide an excellent chance for its members to learn public speaking skills, improve English language proficiency, develop creative thinking and enhance the confidence of the students in making speech in public.
Proactive attitudes, persistent efforts, sense of responsibility and team-work among all the members are the team spirit that we advocate. We will provide not only professional training, but also chances to discover and apply the knowledge through practicing and communicating under an active atmosphere.
Public Speaking, a lifelong skill for everyone
Public speaking is not only useful on the stage, but also extremely important anytime you need to communicate with people. A good public speaking can motivate people, change the listeners’ emotion, and even influence the audience as a person. Earning the ability to make a good public speaking can be helpful for the whole life.
More than “Speaking”
Besides speaking, members are also encouraged to THINK as thinking helps generating new ideas and opinions. We also encourage students to observe more about local and global issues. Without the understanding of global issues around this changing world and the local issues which everyone should be keenly aware of, speaker will hardly deliver a substantial and sparkling speech which creates echoes from the audience. Therefore, we believe that all the speakers in our team a qualified global citizen.
