Ace the PSLE Oral Examinations with Speech Academy Asia: A Deep Dive into Their Techniques and Methods

10 Jul 2023


As parents, we all want our children to excel in their academic pursuits. One such critical milestone in Singapore’s education system is the Primary School Leaving Examination (PSLE), particularly the oral examinations. The ability to articulate thoughts clearly, present arguments convincingly, and engage in meaningful conversations are skills that are not only tested in these exams but are also essential for life. This is where Speech Academy Asia comes into play.

According to a recent article in The Straits Times, English teachers often conduct activities like informal debates to prepare students for the PSLE oral exams. For instance, students might be asked to debate on a question like, “Do you think it is a good idea to get people to return their trays in hawker centres?” Such activities help students develop their argumentative skills, enhance their ability to think on their feet, and improve their overall communication skills.

Let’s consider a real-life example. Imagine your child, Joshua, is a naturally shy individual who struggles with public speaking. At Speech Academy Asia, Joshua would be trained in Neuro Somatics™, a unique approach that emphasizes the connection between the mind and body. He would learn to use body language and breathing techniques to manage his nerves and present with confidence. For instance, Joshua might learn to use deep breathing exercises to calm his nerves before speaking, or how to use hand gestures to emphasize his points. These skills would not only help him during the oral exams but also in everyday situations, such as presenting a project in front of his classmates or speaking up in a group discussion.

Moreover, Speech Academy Asia incorporates Language Memory Programming Semantics™ into their curriculum. This involves using visualization and other memory techniques to help students remember their speeches and deliver them with ease. For example, Joshua might learn to associate each point of his argument with a vivid image, such as a lion for courage or a mountain for a big challenge. This technique helps him to recall his points during the examination and also makes his speech more engaging and memorable.

Finally, the academy focuses on Speech Linguistic Patterns™, teaching students how to use patterns such as metaphor, analogy, and repetition to create compelling speeches and presentations. Joshua might learn to use metaphors to make his arguments more relatable, or repetition to emphasize his main points. For example, he might use the analogy of a journey to describe the process of learning, or repeat a key phrase for emphasis. These techniques not only help him captivate his examiners’ attention during the PSLE oral exams but also enable him to engage his audience during future presentations or public speaking events.

In conclusion, Speech Academy Asia offers a comprehensive approach to mastering public speaking, which can significantly enhance a student’s performance in the PSLE oral examinations. By focusing on mind-body connection, memory techniques, and effective language use, the academy equips students with the skills they need to excel not only in their exams but also in their future endeavors.
