Course Description

In Speech Learners II, students will expand their knowledge from the Speech Learners 1 course by engaging in reading and writing activities! Students who did not take the first course need not be concerned as the iLearn teachers are equipped to quickly evaluate each students skillset and customize lessons and learning materials to meet each student’s needs. Students will be asked to express their thoughts in greater detail, tell stories at a longer length, and discover their personal style for delivering speeches. This class pushes students to become more consistently aware of their body, facial expressions, and tone of voice, which are necessary skills for any presentation.
