Learn to orate in a gentle way in order to conquer stage fright in front of the students.



  • PCs or iPads (tablets)
  • Projector (to do it in front of the class)

Time: 1 to 2 hours

At home

  • Record your own oration
  • Try as many times as necessary

For the cracks among us

Download a music fragment on your PC and import it to Audacity:

  • click on ‘project’
  • Then click on ‘import audio’
  • Add the music fragment to your recorded oration

Listen to the various ‘compositions’ during class and evaluate them with the class.

What do I need?

  • Internet: Yes
  • Hardware: pc

ICT Level and Target Group

  • ICT level: intermediate (with music : difficult )
  • Target group: 2nd degree (prosody and metrics )
