Presentation Delivery Course

Course aims 

Build learner ability and confidence in delivering English presentations. Give learners support in improving their delivery quality in areas such as rhythm, pausing, stress and intonation. Other areas of presenting will also be addressed such using visuals to support delivery, body-language, and engaging the audience.

Learners can expect a high degree of interaction with both the teacher and other learners though small-group and pair-work activities. Learners will be expected to prepare and deliver two mini-presentations during the course (which they receive individual feedback for).
