Open to ages 12 and above, Blubricks debate facilitators teach crucial skills in persuasion, critical thinking and public speaking, encouraging students to engage in a less confrontational and more evidencedriven stance when at the podium. Young debaters will learn to keep their focus on the facts without getting lost in the frenzy of skewed arguments – a skill that will prove valuable in the workplace later on. Classes are every Saturday from 5pm to 7pm.
THE NEW LITERACY
DIY GUITARS IN 14 DAYS
Guitar lessons? Not quite. If your teens are up for the challenge of learning to make a quality guitar in two weeks, check out Jeffrey Yong’s guitar workshop at Pandan Indah Industrial Park. Yong, world-renowned luthier and founder of the Guitar Institute of Malaysia, is offering guitar-making classes to students who have no prior guitar-making experience. Daily classes are from 9.30am to 6pm on Mondays to Saturdays only. Alternatively, students can choose the part-time option of attending classes once or twice a week. There’s even a separate opportunity for apprenticeship under Yong himself for those who aspire to become established luthiers.
