Program

About the course

  • The course consists of eight 2.5-hour sessions. The main aim of the course is to develop the participant’s level of oral proficiency in order to give clear lectures and tutorials in English. The course enables students to improve their verbal skills in English, particularly those relating to academic oral presentation. These include expressions that signal the structure of presentations, the language of graphs and statistics, and question and answer techniques. The following areas were also addressed: the principal techniques of oral presentation in English, material selection and organization, use of visual aids, effective body language, building speaker-audience rapport and active student involvement. There is an additional focus on current pedagogic best practice and analysis of new educational technologies.

Topics

We identify the needs of your organization or your group based on interviews, intakes and example texts. For example:

  • What’s the best structure for your message in English?
  • Which transitional words and phrases are useful in English?
  • How do you deal with questions?
  • How do you lead a worthwhile and constructive discussion in English?
    How can you improve your fluency and pronunciation?
  • How do conventions of politeness differ between Dutch and English?
  • How can you use visual aids in your lectures?
  • How can you improve your intelligibility?
