Hop Speech - Speech and Debate Class for Kids!

Hop Speech at OPL

Kids in 4th - 6th grade, join us for a great opportunity to learn speech and debate with Hop Speech!


The transition between elementary and middle school is tough in all aspects. One specific part is the constant presentations, both on the spot or memorized. We are aware that public speaking is difficult for many kids; We’ve been through it ourselves. Our goal is to make things easier for the kids. Speech is an aspect that will stay with children throughout their lives!

What's covered in the Hop Speech Workshop:

  • teach the basic structure to writing a speech
  • practice speaking skills (clarity, volume, eye contact)
  • games involving impromptu (on the spot) speaking

This class is for kids in 4th – 6th grade and will be held during the afternoons on Saturday, 10/13 and Sunday, 10/14 from 2:30-4:00pm.


***Registration is required. Please call 510-238-3515 to RSVP***
