Johan Speaking Academy: One and Half Day Workshop

First day at Kids Public Speaking
This March School Holidays, I told son that he's going to Kids Public Speaking workshop is it 1 and half day workshop at Johan Speaking Academy located at Taman Tun Dr Ismail (TTDI).

My son hasn't been on stage for a long time since the Halloween contest 2 years back. During the halloween contest it was just perform the act, there's no public speaking involved. It seems he has lost of confidence to go stage since that. I am happy that I have enrolled him for the one and half day workshop at Kids Public Speaking, it's in English. It build back his confidence, and he gets to know friends that have similar interest in learning public speaking. 
They get to know each other on the first day, my son with his new friend Wallace

First day of public speaking from 9.30am to 3.30pm. Second day is where parents can see their child perform on stage to present themselves. Second day of public speaking from 9.30am to 1.30pm. Second is like a big day for every parent, we get to see our child perform in front their new friends and parents.

  1. nice workshop for your kid :D last time i dont even have such opportunity T_T

  2. Only TTDI? no other branches? TTDI abit far from my area >_<

    1. yeah its not near to me too. But I get to know parents from Rawang, Cheras, Kepong and also Penang also go Johan Speaking Academy at ttdi :D

  3. I think it worth to spend and sent the kids for such development and educational classes since young.

  4. This is indeed a good workshop for kids.. I would have sent my daughter but then she had extra classes because of her UPSR

  5. My children enjoy the workshops too to build their confidence. Recommended for all children to attend.

  6. Great effort Sherry for enrolling your kid to learn public speaking. I believe that everyone should learn public speaking - some adults are still scared of doing public speaking. Kudos to you.

  7. What a nice workshop and its definitely worth it to enroll the children into good public speaking sessions like these. Well done Sherry dear :)

  8. Good use of their school holidays to improve their social skills. May be useful one day when they become adults.
