A recent Speech Festival Champion

Award-winning speech and drama experts here at i-Learner are available to train speech festival entrants in a wide array of classes. Our years of experience in this field has led to many of our students being awarded honors.

We run training courses starting from September each year and going right up to the date of your competition.

Consultation with Teachers

For several years, we have provided a consultation service for teachers who are tackling the higher level texts with their students. Our consultation can help you to get to the deeper subtleties of these difficult play scripts, poems, and prose pieces. Our teachers can help by pointing out the shades of meaning and the points of irony in the texts in order for you to help prepare your students with a dramatic interpretation.

We can even record your texts so that your students can hear the words pronounced by native speakers, and with the deeper meanings of the piece brought to life. Listen to the examples below, from the 68th Speech Festival:

Testimonials

這次朗誦比賽,我參加了英詩朗誦和聖經朗讀兩部分,整個準備過程實在緊張,由看到宣傳後決定報名參加,到收到誦材,再到比賽日期,前後不足一個月,可以準備的時間實在緊湊。我收到誦材後立刻到i-Learner上了一堂特訓課,這堂課真的幫了我不少呢!

導師真的教得很好,她十分仔細地幫我在誦材上標記重點,做了很多筆記,又幫我錄音作參考,把我的問題都糾正了,之前比賽無論如何都沒法勝出,這次有好表現全靠導師指點。

我學會了很多技巧,例如發音不是靠喉嚨,而是要運用丹田,我從不知道可以有這樣的方法呢;又例如我去過教會,覺得教會很舒服,以為一切都應該很放鬆緩慢,但原來因為內容中談及到很多先知、解謎、神蹟等的事,導師說如果沒有愛就表現不出這些奇妙偉大了,所以朗讀時也可以表達出豐富的感情,我沒想過有這樣的演繹方式呢!

我一向都表現緊張,一緊張就會讀得很急速,忽略了很多重要的事比如內容等,所以要不停提醒自己要慢慢來。現在我學會了想像誦材所描述的內容,像這次朗讀的詩,我想像自己從窗口望出去,見到海邊狂風雷暴,感到很害怕,我又想像自己的親朋就在那樣的海上,他們有危險嗎?會下沉嗎?就是這樣的想像,令我朗讀時更能投入感情了。

如果我沒上i-Learner的課,就不懂得要運用丹田,聲音就沒那麼洪亮了,也不會懂得如何表達豐富的感情,所以這次勝出比賽,實在感到很開心,也很感謝導師的指導呢!
