About

Ever wanted to take part in extempore TEDx Talks? Ever wanted to improve your impromptu speaking skills?

Well, this is the series for you!

Hey everyone! I’m really excited to bring a second version of my previous Extempore TEDxSchoohouse series! Welcome to the Schoolhouse Extempore TEDx Talks 2.0 🎉!

In this series, we’ll be having sessions where you will get the chance to test out and improve your skills in extempore talks as well as pick up tips to do well in speaking impromptu. In the first session, we’ll be going through tips on how to do well in these extempore TEDX Talks along with some talk examples and then thereafter, it will be your chance to speak!

HOW EXTEMPORE TED TALKS WORK

In extempore TEDx Talks, you are randomly given a topic to speak on and given 60 seconds to gather your thoughts, after which you are given 4 minutes to speak along with an additional extra one minute if needed. But don’t worry, we won’t give you just 1 minute to think right from our first session. Since we also want to include beginners and help you improve your skills, we’ll start out with 3 minutes, and gradually decrease the thinking time until it reaches 1 minute.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE

If you have vast experience in extempore talks and just want to brush up your skills and take part, or if you’re a complete beginner looking to start out, the series is for you! Anyone who’s interested can take part, regardless of your experience. If you’re a bit shy and worried about not doing well, don’t worry, we’re all here to learn and the only way we can learn is by practising!

Note: I have kept all the sessions at different times to accommodate as many time zones as I can. If the timings of the sessions don’t work for you, please let me know and I’ll try my best to host a session that’ll work for you.

About the Tutor

Hey everyone! I am Hafsah, a (soon to be) high school student from India who is studying advanced courses well ahead of my age level. I love science, maths and computer programming. I have been commended in my school multiple times, have been a topper in my class, and was also elected as head girl of my class. In my free time, I love to read, ski, research on stuff I’m interested in, do some cooking, learn new languages and explore more programming languages. Excited to be a tutor here at schoolhouse, and I look forward to seeing you in my sessions!
