Dear Very Kiasu,

Glad to know he had good fun! For the soft spoken and shy, we make it a point that no one gets away without speaking up at least once in every class! This is done through all the games we play in tackling the objective of the lesson every week. So, all group members have to contribute, and this includes verbal contributions.

We have a different oral focus each term as well. Last term, we did the Pick and Tell which was to talk non-stop on the spot all about an object they randomly drew out of a bag. The kids had to brainstorm and keep talking at the same time. This taught them to think on their feet and keep their audience entertained at the same time. They take turns to do this oral time -usually one opportunity in a term.

This term, it's reading aloud with expression and good pace. They will pick a page or two of their choice and come ready to demonstrate good reading to the whole class.

Apart from this, one lesson per term, usually the last, is devoted to oral practice as well. It can be in the form of giving verbal directions to the nearest mall or an exposition on why they think they are are the best group in the class. It can even be about proving a point which they believe in- having to speak with conviction and supporting their argument with evidence.

Actually, if you visit our Facebook page, I think we have a couple of videos of our kids doing 'Show and Tell' from last year.

Here's also a JC student doing a faux political campaign speech:

Of course, we thought these were excellent! So, we believe, with the gradual nurturing, even the bashful will find their voices.
