Oral Language Skills

Last week YouLearn began offering its first face-to-face French and Language Arts workshops out of its Oliver classroom located in Oliver Elementary School. As an introduction to effective public speaking we examined a mystery liquid which Mr. Eaton had brought in to share with us. Unfortunately, no one was brave enough to taste the concoction. Instead, what we did was compare it to the skills we are hoping to develop. Instead of using cloudy language, we want to focus on using clear language. Likewise, instead of having our speech be “chunky”, we want it to flow. By the end of our classes, instead of lumpy gravy we are hoping more to speak like apple juice.
