The syllabus for LAMDA Public Speaking is fantastic. Not only for speaking in public and getting used to text, but also for confidence and learning how to present yourself in all walks of life.
If there are enough candidates taking exams at the same time I hire a venue. Otherwise the nearest centres are Cheltenham, Swindon & London.
The syllabus is really quite broad. So whether reading poetry, writing and presenting political speeches, or working around a theme appeals; there is something for everyone. There are the following options;
Speaking Verse and Prose
Reading for Performance
Using Spoken English
Speaking in Public.
