This programme is designed to help English teachers at either primary or secondary levels to prepare students for the Hong Kong Schools Speech Festival, 2017. The English-Speaking Union’s experienced trainers/educators will be able to offer advice to teachers on diction, expression, interpretation and performance, as well as on techniques for developing students’ appreciation and awareness of rhetorical features of the relevant texts.
