FAQ

Q1: How will the classes run? Will there be one specific topic for each class?

A: Although the club is running in a virtual style, the agenda we are using is the same as the onsite way prior to COVID-19. There are many opportunities for members to practice their public speaking skills, including 'Table Topics', speeches, leadership roles, and fun activities.  Each meeting has a few students who will give speeches, and when the speaker is talking, the evaluators listen carefully and write down feedback. After the speech, feedback is given by a peer.

There are also multiple chances for the students to debate, either one to one, or in groups ranging from 3-6 members. 

There are both adult and volunteer mentors that attend every class, aiding the students' process. The mentors will guide the exec team to organize the events,  and also will share their experience on public speaking and leadership. These mentors have rich experience in public speaking and leadership.
