Speak Your Mind

Better thinking and confident communication transforms lives

Speak Your Mind is a new 6-level general English course that helps young adults to develop effective communication skills. It has a focus on speaking English in local and global scenarios and provides students with coping strategies designed to increase their confidence in a variety of situations.

Activities in Speak Your Mind encourage learners to consider other points of view, think things through, and then express their own ideas and solutions.
