How can I help my child to prepare for the Speech Festival?

The HKSMSA festival dates have just been announced. Students will have had their poems for a few weeks now. A common question from parents is 'how can we help?' Brandon has a few suggestions:

1: Come to one of our Speech Festival Prep classes (of course!)

2: Read the poem through with your child and get them to retell the story to you. Do they understand all the language? If not, look up the words together.

3: Mark up the poem with the relevant emotions. Play with the voices and add in facial expressions.

4: Practice whenever you can in front of family members.

Most importantly....

The Speech Festival is a brilliant way to build confidence, encourage your child irrespective of their final result!
