English Speaking Courses

-The way one expresses orally reveals instantly the strengths and the weaknesses of one’s thoughts, of one’s reasoning… The first contact between two people is generally oral and therefore determines largely how the relationship will develop.
Most people consider speech as a natural skill: some have a natural talent which others don’t have! The way a talk is organized follows some rules, whose efficiency has been demonstrated.
-ALM’s training courses will give you an awareness of the overall mechanisms related to oral expression. They will improve talk strategies (planning, introduction, development, thought, conclusion), speaking in public (voice, body language, attitude) and listening. They will offer the ability to find and adopt the appropriate attitude when speaking in public in different conditions. They will meet the needs related to oral expression in professional situations.


– Individual assessment and programme.

– Practical exercises, in-situation: formal public speaking (communication, press conference…), institutional public speaking (short speech, presentation…) or freer public speaking (conversation…).

– Individual and group exercises: role-play games, simulation…
