Workshop Beschreibung

You may have an excellent level of English already but lack the confidence to speak in front of larger groups. Or you may wish to expand your repertoire of language to give your presentation skills more impact and coherence. After looking at the qualities of effective presentations and focusing in particular on structure, signposting, emphasizing, and dealing with questions (using visual aids, diagrams etc.), participants will be given the opportunity to give their own individual presentation, which will then be reviewed and discussed.

Important: As mentioned in the announcement please bring a presentation (in English, if possible) prepared for the seminar with you.

To evaluate your level, please see:  

If you have further questions about your level, please contact lecturer:
