Speech is powerful. From politicians to football coaches and from businessmen to students, a good speech can make the difference between winning and losing. However, making a speech can also be scary: what do you say? How do you say it? Will the words come out how I want them to? On the Toastmasters course, you will grow in confidence over the week to become the master of your own speech. Learn how to structure what you say, how to present it, and how to recover if you make a mistake. We will look at some of the most famous speeches in history and write our own ones too.
Do you play computer games? What if we told you that in one week, we can teach you how they are designed and let you make your own game? Do we have your attention now? On the Programming course, you will learn how to code, how to create your own programme and you will finish the week having programmed the first game that was ever made! Try out your problem solving skills and make progress in learning English at the same time on our course. The skills you learn about algorithms in the week will allow you to go away and continue programming in your own time after the course has finished.
