Synopsis:

The overall aim of this course is to develop communication and language skills in order to plan and deliver an effective presentation. Students will be taken systematically through the key stages of giving presentations, from planning and introducing to concluding. Students are guided, using interactive methods, to communicate their thoughts and ideas in a logical and structured order - and in as brief or succinct a way as possible.

Emphasis is placed on independent, critical thinking and the correct formulation of presenting ideas; throughout this course students will practice skills that will enable them to become better speakers and presenters.

Students are expected to be at intermediate level of English at least.
