What Is Elocution and Reading Club?

Elocution and Reading Club is part of the Afterschool Program on Communication Skills Enhancement for children in the primary and pre-primary sections. Elocution plays a crucial role in the formation, articulation, and pronunciation of speech and speaking skills for children, whereas the reading club encourages children to explore the different forms of language, their dialects and the tenses in which language can be expressed.

The Module

In this specially formulated module, the emphasis lies on improving the child’s overall verbal communication skill. This is done by developing listening, speaking and reading ability. It involves the improvement of oral speech by improving diction & articulation and enhancing word power through a variety of fun-based activities.

Elocution classes not only work as English classes for kids or spoken English classes for kids but also serve as personality development classes for kids.

The program offers activity-based learning exercises which include poetry appreciation, control of facial expression, text performance, informal conversations etc. These also help in building self-confidence, an important element of oral communication.

Shared reading sessions help the children gain exposure to books, learn about various authors, genres and writing styles. Through this course, the child will get a greater command over the English language, improve comprehension and speaking skills and develop a healthy diction and most importantly a keen interest in reading.
