Since it is a residential program, participants will be accommodated in a suitable hotel on a single occupancy basis.

Program content: 

The TLP-PS program is structured to foster high interactivity and performance focus, prioritizing active engagement and real-time skill demonstrations in public speaking scenarios. 

Participants will partake in a mix of individual and team-based activities, forming six teams comprising six members each. Team assignments will be overseen by the instructor to ensure diverse collaboration among participants. 

Throughout the program, participants will have ample opportunities to submit assignments and presentations before and after instructional sessions. 

Additionally, to deepen their grasp of phonetics, participants will be introduced to the software ‘Praat: doing phonetics by computer’ as an integral component of the curriculum. Detailed session plans are provided below in tabular form.

Pedagogy:

The core pedagogical approach employed in this program centres around participant performance in diverse contexts. The instructor’s role will encompass two main facets: firstly, guiding participants through assigned tasks across various scenarios, and secondly, providing personalized one-on-one feedback. 

This feedback loop enables participants to actively learn, reflect upon, and refine their public speaking skills throughout the program.
