How to of public speaking for ESL Students

4,134 views

Published on

Have you ever wished that you could enrich your Oral Communications classes with more personally enriching material to unlock your students’ speaking skills? Public speaking skills in a second language are a powerful confidence builder. However, developing these skills is a process which requires a careful build-up of various abilities. There are few materials which provide insight as to how to teach these skills step-wise to adult Second Language Learners.
Techniques for integrating public speaking into Oral Communications courses, engagement of the student audience as evaluators, and preparation of outstanding slides are some of the topics covered in this interactive program. Model presentations, evaluation forms and feedback techniques will be made available. Participants will take away tested, easily implementable techniques to turn Oral Communications students into confident presenters, with the potential to exceed the performance of native speakers.
