What do spiders, heights, and public speaking all have in common? Three-quarters of the human population is scared of them! The fear of public speaking even has a name: glossophobia.

As Ralph Waldo Emerson once aptly put it, “All great speakers were bad speakers at first.” At LTWN, we are eager to meet your child at their level and inspire their talent for speech!
