You will surely improve your public speaking skills and your English. Because to participate you need to have at least Upper-Intermediate (B2) level. During the preparation for the conference, you will take a course of free lessons where you will get some public speaking tips from teachers and mentors. And at the end of these lessons, your speech will be video recorded and posted on the official TED platform. So that thousands of people from all over the world will see it!
You will also learn how to structure your speech, to visualize thoughts in presentation, to use spot-on slogans and headlines, and to look for interesting and non-obvious examples. Although the speech itself is an individual piece of work, you will be taking lessons in a team. So, get ready to network with interesting people!
Finally, if you are nominated for a trip to the World TED Conference, you will get a chance to visit New York and to exchange ideas at the international level. Ukraine has only been in TED selection for three years, but we are already making progress. Our student Yuliia Melnychuk became the first participant of the world TED-Ed Weekend. By the way, now Yuliia is a mentor and she will help you prepare for the event :)
