Korea Public Speaking Championship and the World Individual's Qualifier

  • Crimson Education
  • Seoul International School, Korea
Multiple Competition Skill Building


Each participant must compete in four different events: Debate, Impromptu Speaking, Persuasive or After Dinner Speaking and Interpretive Reading.

The challenging environment provides an avenue for individual students not only to practise and test their oratorical skills but to value the importance of the art of expression; the ability to communicate and gain recognition and respect for our ideas and opinions is vitally important.

The Championship is aligned with the ideals of excellence, identity, and the art of expression, ie the ability to communicate and gain recognition and respect for ones ideas and opinions. It targets tomorrow's leaders - students in a global market who must learn to interact and collaborate with peers from diverse schools, cultural backgrounds and countries.
