The SERVITO’s KSS Learning Center held a Public Speaking and Speech Summer Camp for students and adults last May 25-28, 2010.
The said program which was the first of its kind in the town of Calasiao was attended by six eager students; where they learned English phonetics, how to improve their pronunciation, diction, accent,and intonation. They were also taught how to gain and build self-confidence, and overcome fear specially when speaking in public. Proper speech delivery which included appropriate hand and body gestures, facial expressions, and rapport building, was likewise discussed.
The four-day camp was highlighted by an exciting practicum where the enrollees delivered speeches in front of an audience which included their lecturers Maria Dolour Servito-Navarra and Journa Liz Servito-Ramirez who are both graduates of Communications & Journalism at the Brigham Young University-Hawaii.
The next Speech Improvement and Public Speaking Program is scheduled on July 10- Aug. 21, Saturday classes only.
