  • How do I enrol into a class?
    You can use our 'click to enrol' or 'express interest' buttons to find a suitable class for you. Once we have your details, and you have selected the program that suits you, our team will reach out to you directly to finalise details and provide you with a payment link.
  • How do i choose which program is best for me?
    The short answer is that regardless of your skill level, we have the right program for you. For in-term classes: You can select classes based on your skill level. Beginner classes are ideal for students who have never done any debating or public speaking before. Don't worry though, before your first lesson, our team will share a free webinar on the basics of debating that you can review in your own time! Intermediate classes are designed for students who understand the basics of debating. Advanced classes are for students who are regularly debating for their school team. For holiday courses, for beginners we recommend our 3 in 1 courses or our Speaking Skills Assignment Success program. These courses will teach you core skills in debating and public speaking in a fun and engaging environment. For intermediate and advanced students who have a bit of experience in debating, our debating camps are the best option.
  • How do the zoom classes work?
    Many of our weekly speaking classes are run over zoom. This is so that our students don't need to rush from school to another location to practice debating. Our coaches have extensive experience coaching over zoom, and our zoom platform is equipped with apps to gauge and improve student engagement. However, our students all get regular chances to participate in in-person debating through our weekend mini tournaments hosted throughout the year, and through our in person holiday camps.
  • I still have questions - how do I get in touch with you?
    You can email us at speakerscorneraustralia@gmail.com We can also be contacted via WhatsApp, WeChat or other social media. You can find all of our contact details here
  • How do you ensure class quality?
    Speakers' Corner is one of the only debating academies in Australia run by elite university debaters. That means that our leadership team is qualified to hand-pick the best coaches in Australia, and oversee a high quality program. Our coaches are often drawn from leading university debating societies, and are equipped with globally recognised teaching resources.
  • How much do classes cost?
    The pricing of our classes depends on the length and duration of the class. We take payment by the term, and our classes usually start from $30/hr + GST for zoom classes and $36/hr +GST for in person classes.
