Let them shine!, or public speaking and how to go about it in the classroom. – a webinar by Anna Orłowska

Dear Colleagues,

IATEFL Poland and Public Speaking SIG

have the pleasure to invite you to the webinar

Let them shine!, or public speaking and how to go about it in the classroom.


Alongside other key competences, public speaking skills should bepart of every modern curriculum. Still, most students leave the educational system without having mastered even the basics that would lay the foundations for successful presentations, talks and business pitches they might need in the future.

Ralph Waldo Emerson once said “All the great speakers were bad speakers at first”, and rightly so, as the art of public speaking can and should be taught in the language classroom.

How to go about though?

In this webinar, the participants will learn some of the reasons why public speaking skills are a worthwhile pursuit in the language classroom, how to help students gradually warm to the idea of public speaking being a key competence of the future, and how to create a supportive learning environment where public speaking skills are fostered.
