Kids Tasty Speech by Johan Speaking Academy

Last weekend, Mommy Jane brought 3 Little Angels to join the Kids Tasty Speech organised by Johan Speaking Academy. Instead of the normal 1.5 days Kids Public Speaking workshop at TTDI that they usually went, this round Johan Speaking Academy had brought the finale of the 2nd day workshop to a REAL Restaurant to give kids a real life experience of working in a Cafe ! My 3 Little Angels had became the Little Waiters and Waitress of the day at Luscious By Lisa T cafe which located at 1 Mont' Kiara.
My 3 Little Angels had attended the workshop at TTDI on Saturday where they were trained by Teacher Johan and Teacher Cherry on the role playing. They were trained to greet the customers when they come in, introduce the food and beverages available, taking orders, serving food and drink, getting feedback from customers on their level of service where we able to rate them and lastly collect money from customers. Basically, they were the Little Waiters and Waitress for the day. Yeah...
After attending the workshop on Saturday, my 3 Little Angels woke up quite early on Sunday to start their REAL life experience at the Luscious, 1 Mon't Kiara.  There are a total of 10 kids, aged between 8 to 12 years old, who will practically run the restaurant except for cooking the food and preparing the drinks. Check out the video of my Little Angel, WH and his new found buddy in actions and Mommy Jane had became their customer on that day...



After experience their services, Mommy Jane felt that they had performed way better than the usual waiters and waitress that serve us in any other restaurant. I'm sure you'll agreed with me too and hopefully the children will become the example to all the Waiters and Waitress in Malaysia to serve customers better.

CW was trained to hold a hot cup of Cappuccino from Shawn, the Boss of Luscious cafe with the help from Teacher Cherry, Co-Founder of Johan Speaking Academy
And then served it to her customers
They were also trained to keep track of their customer's order and received payment
Pass the balance of the payment together with the receipt to their Customer who are happy with their services
What will they learn from becoming the Waiters and Waitress on that day ? Let me share with all of you. I can see the collaboration between the teammates. 2 children in a team and both had different role playing and they work together to accomplished their task successfully.

My Little Angels learned how to communicate with customers with confidence and without fear even though all the customers there are totally strangers to them. They welcome every customers who came in to the cafe with a friendly smile, lead them to their seats and taking orders from them. They even recommended some of the specialty that are available at the cafe and tried to fulfill the customers special request. Since Luscious cafe had a promotion for a combination set of a cupcake and a drink for RM15 nett, Mommy Jane had order a set to try it out.

After enjoying my yummylicious tea time, the children came to me to ask for feedback and ask me to rate for the food and the services. To test them out, I rated them with 1 star. Instead of getting angry, the children were trained to received critics well by Teacher Johan and ask for room for improvement. Overall, Mommy Jane was quite satisfied with the services and the food presented. Thumbs up to all the kids and the cafe who had provided the opportunities for the kids to explore themselves in the role playing.

The children had their real-life experience becoming the Little Waiters and Waitress for the day for 2 hours and some had even served up to 3 customers. Even though this is their first time in this role playing, I bet all customers will agreed with me that the kids had done a good job.

The live finale was the Kids Public Speaking presented in front of the parents and customers after the tasty speech event. All the children include my 3 Little Angels had introduce themselves well, speak out confidently on their favourite food and let us know their ambition. They also express their love to their parents publicly without fear. My heart was touched hearing it from my 3 Little Angels and I was so proud on them.

Kids Public Speaking builds self confidence and self esteem. It had helped to improve the verbal communication skills and increase the vocabulary. It also helps my 3 Little Angels to organise their thoughts and promotes interpersonal skills. Kids Public Speaking had gave them a sense of empowerment. Therefore Public Speaking is a very important skill to have besides academic qualification. Do check out my 3 Little Angels speech here...
