The Speaking Assistance Programme aims to help students gain the confidence and skills to speak fluently in a variety of university and workplace settings. The programme is based on a negotiated programme, therefore students are expected to make decisions on what aspect of speaking they would like to focus on each session. The teacher's role is that of guide and feedback provider.
Examples of oral topics include: social discussion, debate of a current affairs topic, presentation practice, pronunciation focus.
We have a range of materials, games, videos and worksheets for students to use if they so desire. Alternatively, students may bring their own resources.
The SAP is a very flexible and informal programme and is open Monday to Friday between the hours of 10.30 - 6.30pm.
