Special attention is given to becoming a more effective communicator by transforming the written word into dynamic oral presentations. Self-confidence will build as the student is given hands-on, practical experience and exposure to output creative presentations and feel comfortable speaking in front of a crowd. Course Objectives 1. Speak with energy, conviction, confidence and enthusiasm. 2. Adapt writing for the ear. 3. Present information clearly and directly. 4. Demonstrate confidence and mastery of the materials covered in class. Professionalism A professional business-like attitude is a must if you are to succeed in the marketplace. Professionalism means being fully prepared, having a positive attitude, being punctual, participating fully and being courteous to others. This is an intensive, interactive course. Students must be prepared to fully engage themselves with the material and participate in an active manner. Final marks will reflect your level of professionalism.

    • Every week, the designated class captain or assistant captain will be responsible for taking attendance and checking prep sheets. Prep sheets will prove that you have previewed the language focus that will be discussed in class. Professionalism will be earned by making yourself available, unique and memorable. The more a student engages with the material, the greater amount of participation marks will be awarded. There will be one written quiz near the end of the semester that reviews the theory learned in class. In addition, each student will be required to make one short in-class presentation on a given topic. Students must also demonstrate their absorption of the material by giving one midterm speech and one final speech. * The following page is the outline and sign up sheet.
