What our students say about us
Classes are really fun. I love joining the classes and chatting with my teacher and friends. I feel like we get to play together a lot.
My daughter joined the public speaking course in this summer. The tutor taught them the skills on public speaking with an emphasis on vocal clarity, volume, eye contact, and confidence, etc. She got plenty of chances to speak up in the class and she made friends there.
This debate class is one of the best debate classes ever. It teaches you a lot of debating skills and the teachers are really kind,overall I think that it is a really good experience for all of us.
The teachers taught me a lot and the topics are interesting and challenging. We discussed whether it’s worth the cost to develop space travel, shall we ban nuclear rockets, and many more topics that made me think hard. It was great to hear other people’s perspectives and learn to crossfire and rebuttals.
My son said the setting encouraged him to speak more. Through impromptu exercises, he learned to be more instanteous and responsive, and quick to think on his feet which was different from the course he attended in (the top leading centers in Hong Kong where the topic was given one week in advance). He enjoyed speaking more here at DPSI at See Change because topics are diverse and interesting, such as “should we continue online teaching for the rest of 2020” and “do we as citizens have a responsibility to protect the environment.” My son used to be quite shy but I am glad to see him enjoy speaking proactively in class now.
I really enjoyed the whole experience as not only did I improve my debating skills through arguments and learn about different debate structures, I also learned about different global issues through lively discussions with my teachers and classmates.Overall, i would really recommend this course for everyone who wants to learn more about debate!
My son has never expressed any interest in debate after trying multiple debate courses. However, he recently joined See Change’s summer debate course and, at the end of the course, he proactively asked to sign up for their regular term debate class. He especially found the topics interesting and different from the typical topics offered in an introductory debate course. The instructor was approachable and very experienced as well. I’m very happy that my son now has a positive and keen interest in debate. Thank you See Change!
Overall, I think this course is fun and enjoyable. The teacher is engaging and taught us well. My favourite part of this course is the large amount of interaction between classmates. There are a lot of group activities, such as mock debates, public speaking exercises, and more. This makes the course fun and entertaining.
My daughter was invited to join the summer camp and subsequently the weekly course by her classmate. They started with ice-breaker by self-introducing themselves and they have touched on a lot of interesting topics for debate, for example, “Should animals extinct be blamed on human?”, “Should parents added genes for their babies”, “Should recycling be paid?”, “Should cloning be legalized?” and “Is space worth the cost?”. They were divided into pros and cons group and they had a 10-minute breakout room for subgroup discussion. After one or two sessions of warm-up, they are now very tuned and the pros and cons group will take turn to talk and rebut the opposite side. They can express themselves freely as there is no time limit for each turn. The tutor possesses skills to facilitate their discussion by giving useful feedbacks and ideas to the kids. My daughter likes her so much and enjoys the course a lot. I am glad that she can join the class and keep socializing with others while at the same time develop critical thinking and debate skills, despite we have to keep social distance in this COVID-19 outbreak.
The class is stimulating allowing for intelligent discussion and the ability to learn from future STEM leaders. Plus it’s fun!
I really enjoy the debate classes which make me a lot more confident and comfortable in public speaking. Good progress made in learning various techniques of debating
