Regardless of whether you are a man or woman, if you already have good English but would like to improve your speaking abilities then our Public Speaking program may be what you are looking for. The instructors are Americans with many years of experience in the field of teaching and public speaking. They have also logged many years of experience teaching and training people to be teachers and speakers.

Our material covers basic theories of speaking, such as identifying various types speeches and the importance of the voice and how it affects speech. Then we systematically work through each phase of the speech making process, from analysis of the occasion and audience, to deciding on a type and topic, to preparation and practice, to delivery and follow up. Each class meeting, including the first one, will include a speaking assignment and there will be numerous outside assignments. Instructors will provide written analysis and evaluation for every speaking assignment to help assure students of weekly progress.

The ETHOS Public Speaking Program is composed of twelve (12) lessons with 24 Hours total in-class study time, which works out to 2 hours per class, 3 times per week, for 4 weeks.
