W hat is the point of studying so hard if you cannot express yourself?
Public-speaking is not Performance-Public-speaking. It’s not a stage-performance for extroverts. It is the art of persuading people that your thoughts are worthy of being heard. It’s for everyone.
About the Logophilia Public Speaking Programme (PSP)
The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme is a multi-level public speaking programme structured through powerful introspection activities, which purports to empower students in the art of self-expression.
Level 1 DISINHIBITION Our focus in this level is to get participants to overcome their hesitation in talking; make them understand that public speaking is so much more than performance-public speaking; & to realise the value that they can bring by speaking up. Level 2 OBJECTIVITY Once disinhibition has set in, we start raising the vital question: what good is your talking if it doesn’t make sense. In Level 2, we train our students in the art of thinking objectively. We educate them about cognitive biases, and help them become conscious of their biases. We do activities in decision-making, political correctness, video-making, and so forth. Level 3 PERSUASION Having developed disinhibited, objective, speakers, we now move to initiate training inhigh-impact speaking – rhetoric. We introduce rhetorical devices in five categories. Participants are taught how to influence their audiences deeply. We also do personality-voicing, life-mapping, moral-code-setting, and so forth, to create thought clarity. Level 4 REPRESENTATION We take rhetoric to the next level, and help students practice getting comfortable with making it a part of their speaking. We also start training them to be indomitable speakers, with teaching them the “art of the put-down”. Logical fallacies are introduced in detail. Multiple thought experiments are conducted; & extempore speaking becomes the norm. Level 5 FINALE We climax the Public Speaking Programme with getting participants to experience a heightened awareness of their speaker-identity; their needs and wants, and how to align their pursuits with those; giving finishing touches to their rough edges; sharpening their speaking weapons, and solidifying their shields; empowering them with non-stereotypedspeech; and, giving out final feedback on their presentation and video-making skills, to name some.

What is Etymology? Why Logophilia?E tymology Education is a system of education in which students learn the concepts of various academic disciplines from their word origins or roots. Given that words are the most fundamental units of knowledge, a rich understanding of words directly correlates to a refined knowledge acquisition ability.
We believe that:
(a) words are fundamental to knowledge
(b) a student with a weak vocabulary = a weak student
(c) a really large number of words can be deciphered using a functional understanding of Etymology
(d) it is entirely ridiculous that students should have to waste time memorising words or concepts.
Why is Public Speaking Important?
For most people, public speaking is something that’s done from stage. Come to Logophilia find out how it is so much more! The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme is a multi-level public speaking programme structured through powerful introspection activities, which purports to empower students in the art of self-expression, and persuasion. Persuasion is something that we do everyday, multiple times-a-day, when we interact with others.
The Logophilia Public Speaking Programme raises the essential question of what is the point in studying so hard if one does not know how to express it. Human individuals, for a variety of reasons, find themselves at a loss for words, confidence, and ability when it comes to expressing themselves in front of others. These deficiencies tend to often be rooted in authoritarian enculturation practices (overstrict parenting, or schooling), which renders children to grow up feeling like intruding aliens in an adult world. Consequently, these individuals tend to develop a strong diffidence, which lingers on to corrode their abilities even much later into their adulthood. At the Logophilia Public Speaking Programme we get these students to practice removing these hesitations and to express themselves without the doubt of impending criticism.
In our second TEDx talk, Dhruv Raj Sharma (Founder & CEO, Logophilia Education) talks passionately about the need for self-expression, sharing, and why no disappointment is too small to be ignored.
