Passionate speeches from AMES students

In the second of two sessions today, ESL-background students attending a pronunciation class with Adult Multicultural Education Services broke new ground in their ability to confidently communicate and speak in front of an audience. Last week, students rose to the challenge of focussing on confident presentation despite feelings of nervousness and language difficulties, whilst conducting a persuasive speech centred around something they would like to change in the world. This week, students took their skills to the next level. They provided signposted speeches with reasoned content in a passionate, responsive and engaging debate about the pros and cons of vegetarianism.
