Course Description

The voice and the face are two essential features that distinguish a TV channel from other traditional means of communication. They are among the most important pillars of its identity. You - the TV presenter - are the one who will determine which program is to be presented, be it a talk show or a news show and you are the one who will orientate the audience as well as triggering its curiosity and entertainment. Your mission as a TV presenter is very important, but at the same time an exciting one! Indeed, if this mission is well carried out, it will be highly appreciated by the audience. For this reason, many people desire to work in this field. Hence, people who have good behavioral competencies, appropriate movement skills and who can talk and present before the mic and the camera without problems, have great opportunity to work in new or famous TV channels which are permanently seeking for new faces and new voices.
