The presentation course is designed to suit your specific needs. You choose what areas are more important to you from the menu below. You will receive pre course material which gives you some initial ideas on preparing a presentation. You should prepare a 3-5 minute presentation (with 3-5 slides). Send this presentation to your course trainer. You are now ready to start your presentation course.
Day 1 starts with each participant giving a presentation. The other participants listen and give constructive feedback using a checklist. The presentations are recorded and later played back so they can be analysed. The recording is optional and highly recommended as it is a powerful didactic tool. The recorded presentations are watched back and each participant receives group and individual feedback.
After lunch we will look at some top tips and communicative strategies for presentations. After some communicative activities to practise any new language or phrases, you prepare your second presentation. This is the time to incorporate and use feedback, new ideas and tips. You then have an evening to absorb what youa ™ve learned, recharge your batteries and mentally prepare yourself for your second presentation.
Day 2 puts into practise what youa ™ve learned on the first day! You give your second presentation and receive feedback from other participants on how well your course. Your then watch your second presentation back on video and see for yourself how much youa ™ve learned.
As an optional follow up, you get a post course task. Here you can prepare another presentation and send it on to be corrected. You also take away English for presentations material, ready to use in your future presentations.
