June 18, 2011 Workshop

D.E.A.S: Drop Everything And Speak
A speaking program developed by students for students.

3-5 pm Saturday June 18, 2011
Room 105 Injaeguan Center, Sookmyung Women's University

The program is applicable to all age groups, from elementary school students to university students. It was designed by students at Cheongshim International Academy in Gyeonggi Province Korea and draws from diverse sources. The program focuses on listening and copying to develop a basic language structure. It recognizes the strategies used by babies in their linguistic development and the skills used to make presentations and speeches. (The presenters have extensive presentation or drama experience) The main advantages for students are (1) gaining confidence in speaking English without the fear of making mistakes (2) learning skills to effectively present their ideas to an audience (3) and grasping the context of  language, and its applications, without a textbook. The audience will learn the basics of the program, beginning with listening, copying and error tolerance. The workshop will include handouts, a PowerPoint presentation, and a Q&A session.
