Graded Examinations in Communication: Speaking Verse and Prose

Purpose of the Qualification

LAMDA examinations in Speaking Verse and Prose are designed to develop the skills
necessary for effective oral communication of the written word.
Learners who prepare themselves appropriately will develop:
1 Interpretative skills
2 Technical skills
3 Knowledge of literature.

Broad Objectives of the Qualification

1 Interpretative skills
Learners will be required to:
• engage imaginatively with the thought, emotion, style and form of a text.

2 Technical skills
Learners will be required to:
• build skills in voice, diction, posture and versification.

3 Knowledge of literature
Learners will be required to:
• research the writers’ biographical details and context
• understand voice, speech and versification theory in order to realise the specific demands of the text.

The qualification is available at four levels, in line with the Qualifications and Credit Framework.

Entry Level (Entry 3) Entry Level Level 1 Grades 1, 2, 3
Level 2 Grades 4, 5
Level 3
Grade 6 – Bronze Medal,
Grade 7 – Silver Medal,
Grade 8 – Gold Medal

Learning outcomes and assessment criteria are set at each level, often covering a range of grades (for example Level 1 covers Grades 1, 2 and 3). However, there is still a qualitative difference in outcome between individual grades within each level. This is because:
• set repertoire increases in linguistic and technical difficulty as the grades progress
• the knowledge required increases in technical difficulty as the grades progress
