This 6-week course will take your skills to the next level: we will further explore the art of rhetoric and advanced techniques you can use to craft a memorable speech.

Week 1: Introduction to rhetoric

You'll meet your instructor, classmates, and explore 5 cannons of rhetoric, that will guide us throughout the coming weeks.

Week 2: The Art of Delivery

We will explore the delivery canon of rhetoric, focusing on non-verbal aspects of rhetoric. We will practice speaking using theatrical masks and do a detailed video analysis of your speech.

Week 3: Invention and Arrangement

A memorable speech has a clear structure. This creative session is all about coming up with arguments, ideas and stories for your speech, and arrange them into adequate sequence and structure.

Week 4: Adding Style

Once you have your speech idea and structure ready, it’s time to start writing. We will explore tools of effective speech writing and figures of speech to make your speech stand out and be impactful. 

Week 5: Memory & Delivery

Once you’ve written a speech it’s time to memorise it, as you don’t want to be reading. We will explore techniques of speech memorisation as well as practice your final speech.

Week 6: EURx Talks

It will be time to prepare and face one last challenge: time to present a 10min speech at our EURx Talks event.

Students' Testimonials

Who is this course for?

The ability to speak in front of people and deliver a clear message is a crucial skill for a successful career, whether academic or otherwise.

The exercises we were not just well structured and effective, but fun. Wait till you get to do a power-point karaoke or record your speech in front of a teleprompter like a professional TV host and you’ll get what I mean. I used to like public speaking before the course, but now I love it.
