At Brainy Speech & Debate Academy, we believe that everyone can think and speak well. What we need is practice and training. This summer, the Academy is offering a debate and public speaking summer day camp for students aged 9-16 in Montreal and Toronto.
This camp is suitable for students with different personalities and experience, whether shy or outgoing, beginners or experienced debaters. Students will be grouped based on their age and experience. It will maintain a low instructor to student ratio (1:8) to ensure that every student has plenty of opportunities to speak and receive ample personalized feedback so they can have the most optimal learning experience.
Debating and public speaking are effective training for students to improve their confidence, critical thinking, and communication skills. This training requires students to constantly listen, respond and think on their feet. It helps students to think faster, deeper, and further!
At the camp, students will
- hone their persuasive writing skills
- improve their argumentative abilities
- learn about current affairs
- gain knowledge of a vast range of challenging issues and topics, such as politics, economics, international relations, and social justice
- acquire other skills essential to their academic success, such as research, listening, note-taking and collaboration skills
Through a variety of games, activities, and seminars, the camp will provide a fun, nurturing, and safe learning environment where students can improve their confidence and communication skills, at the same time as enjoying their learning and making new friends!
