Online Public Speaking for Students Batch 6 – Jun – July 2020
Most students experience some kind of nervousness or anxiety when they give a speech, presentation, or perform on stage. They still manage to handle the occasion even if they are not enjoying it. But students who suffer from Glossophobia may avoid situations where they would have to express in public. A student with Glossophobia is incapable of controlling his/her nerves and has tremendous fear of public speaking.
Public speaking includes speaking in front of a group creatively and confidently. It can be in front of people that you already know (e.g. at a family get-together) or a group of complete strangers. Unlike a presentation there usually isn’t a lot of opportunity for interaction between the audience and the speaker – the speaker speaks, and the audience listens.
Nirmiti Academy commenced its 06th batch of Public Speaking program for students from various parts of India. This program acted as a catalyst for the highly enthusiastic batch of budding speakers. It focused on bringing the students out of their comfort zones. This included involving them in activities like presentations, topic speaking activities, storytelling etc.
Aarav, a class 04 student from Thane joined this program to overcome his fear of speaking. Aarav lacked structure while sharing his views and perspectives on any topic. Undergoing this program gave him beautiful insights and direction to his presentation and speaking skills, body language and delivery style which in a way helped him to be more pleasant and confident while speaking to others. Looking at the outcome and positive change in Aarav’s speaking and presentation style, he decided to continue his fun learning journey with Nirmiti Academy by enrolling for yet another public speaking program to enhance his skills.
Abhishek a class 3 student from Andhra Pradesh experienced a sea change in his body language and confidence after he joined the one-month public speaking program with Nirmiti Academy. Abhishek had a powerful voice and also the right content when it came to presenting. But somewhere he lacked conviction and the right non -verbal communication. This program helped him to work and enhance his Public Speaking skills. We provide a helpful and constructive learning experience in which students are allowed to develop communication, speaking and leadership skills, resulting in greater self-confidence, self-esteem and personal development.
Another participant Aparajita, a class 08th student from Navi Mumbai enrolled herself to better her communication and presentation skills. Aparajita has represented her school at various competitions. However, she needed some more polishing and the right structure to get the right confidence when it came to speaking in front a large crowd. Undergoing this program really made her feel more confident and happy about her progress. She has now enrolled for the advanced level of Public Speaking program with Nirmiti Academy. The advanced level of public speaking helps the students to present with the help of some powerful speaking tools and create a fine balance between their tools and speech. It also gives them a competitive edge over others as they are able to demonstrate better confidence, body language and presentation skills.
Communication allows us to form networks, influence choices, and stimulate change.

While some kids take to it naturally, others tend to be more dreadful of standing and speaking in front of the class
Improved communication skills

Becoming a good public speaker does not always happen instantly, and while it may come easily for some children, it can be enormously difficult for others. By enrolling your child for such programs, you can help prepare your child to be a better speaker and instil the confidence they need to network with others no matter how big or small the crowd is.
Working on public speaking also helps to change students’ overall eloquence and requires them to consider how they speak as well as what they speak. This is useful for talking in any given situation, public or otherwise.
Public speaking is a crucial skill that needs to be learned by today’s young students. Maximum communication happens though verbal communication, it is important that students learn to speak clearly and confidently irrespective of the communication mode (face-to-face or online).
As public speaking is vital to have as an adult, developing the skill as a child is one of the best ways to overcome any fear or apprehension that gets developed in the growing stages. At Nirmiti Academy, we value this experience and strive to instruct and inspire the development of public speaking skills in young students
