Everyone will present with to their peers in groups of three. The students will have prepared a one minute speech (often a debate topic). They will speak and receive positive feedback and then constructive feedback. It's a very helpful session and a chance to put into practice what students have learned the week before.
The last session is often an inspirational speech in front of the whole class. It's an opportunity to reinforce the skills they now learned for life.
