Elocution Lessons for Children
Also new online courses - see bottom of page

Fees for Children, all lessons are by Skype
and for over 10 years only

Elocution lessons for children should be fun so I teach children to enjoy speaking and also to speak clearly.

These lessons are suitable for children from 10 years old. If your child is younger I suggest you use my online course.

As well as learning how to speak clearly and confidently, the children will learn to use their memory - something they don't have to do now because all the phone numbers they need are locked into their mobile (cell) phones and with the use of calculators they don't need to know their times tables anymore!   However if they want to learn to speak clearly they will need to learn from memory rhymes, poems and perhaps pieces of prose and acting scripts. I will expect that children will have access to the pieces and exercises that I will email you. Ideally they will be printed out for them but at the very least they should be able to access these online during the lessons. This may sound like hard work but believe me all of the elocution lessons for children are based on fun.

Please look at my Skype page for more details.

Benefits of elocution lessons for children

  1. Children who can speak clearly and confidently are happy children
  2. Children who can speak clearly and confidently are more likely to be top of their class because they're not frightened to speak or ask the teacher questions.
  3. Children who can speak clearly and confidently are willing to join in social events - parties, clubs, sports etc. They don't need to have a parent with them all the time because they can speak for themselves. You, as a parent don't need to worry if they'll ask to use the toilet etc.
  4. Children who can speak clearly and confidently aresuccessful children.
  5. Confident, successful children sleep well at night.

Help your child to speak clearly

'There are many parents who want to teach their child or children to speak in English, but they do not know how to go about doing it. If you are one of these parents, this course is highly recommended to you because it contains many useful tips and sound advice on how to encourage your child to speak, not only clearly, but more. I especially like the part where the instructress guides us on how to encourage a child to speak in sentences, rather than giving one-word answers. I found that many parents and teachers who are non-native English speakers have problems in this area. They do not know how to expand a conversation and as a result of that, children do not have enough exposure to the sounds and rhythm of the language, which is crucial to mastering the language. I think this course provides the missing pieces that could help many parents and teachers to improve in this area. Thank you Ms. Greenslade, for putting this course together.' Course review by Soon Kheng, Chan

As parents we spend hours encouraging children to walk (often before they are ready), to count and to read but we rarely spend time actively encouraging them to speak clearly. I don't mean correcting how a word is pronounced, 'no, it's not oppolit, it's opposite' (a word I had trouble with as a child) I mean teaching them to speak in sentences. We assume that because we talk all day every day our children will pick it up. 

This course will show you how to help children, how to correct them, how to encourage them to speak in sentences and how to have fun with sounds. The methods used in this course can be used to help children who aare just learning to speak or older children who just lack clarity or confidence.

What people say about me .....

You are a "Guru" (teacher) in the true sense of the word, as you impart and share your knowledge in totality, and I'm lucky to have you as a teacher. Kavita.

I’m lucky enough to have had some elocution classes with Serena face-to-face some years ago in Bournemouth. Having English as a second language I used Serena’s knowledge and professionalism to help me, at first, to understand that an accent can be a part of your character and this gives your speech some flavour. The important bit is to understand and learn how to speak every single word clearly, with a good pace, with high and lows which make your speech interesting. It was enlightening, and now I have found online all those wonderful classes with a genuine English lady. This is priceless. Thank you Serena!

At the end of last term my son went for head boy and delivered an amazing speech, something we never imagined he would put himself forward for. The teachers were taken aback by his confidence and presence, he buzzed with excitement for days afterwards and said he loved speaking in public. It is through all your hard work that he has this turn around in his approach to speaking and for this we will be forever grateful. Elaine
