Description

We all know that language is powerful. However, when English is your second language, that feeling of empowerment can quickly transform into a bundle of nerves. If you are an international student, it’s likely that few tasks create more anxiety than having to present your ideas in English. How will others judge my accent? What if my peers can’t understand me? Will people view me as less qualified because of my English skills? All of these concerns can prevent you from maximizing your potential in the classroom, at an interview, and in the workplace.

Fortunately, international students already have the tools to become great public speakers. The key is pushing aside your perceptions about what makes an “excellent” speaker and focusing on the skills you already have.

In addition to your academic and professional life, your confidence in speaking publically will also help you navigate a new city and country. You may feel overwhelmed at first, but public speaking skills allow you to discover the special characteristics, cultures, and people in your new U.S. home.

Confidence is the cornerstone of all effective communication. For that reason, becoming a more confident speaker is a marathon rather than a sprint. Luckily, that does not mean you cannot quickly build your presentation confidence. come and see for yourself how our Toastmaster club can help you succeed in public speaking.
