教育目的/授業目標 The objectives of this course are to improve confidence and communicative ability in English discussion and presentation. Specifically, to improve proficiency in the strategies necessary to communicate information clearly and interact effectively in spoken discussion and Q&A contexts. These include effective presentation strategies (eg. for content, delivery and visuals) and the ability to effectively manage a Q&A or discussion  (eg. stratiegies for clarifying, paraphrasing, elaborating).
指導方針 Active student participation will be expected in a range of pair-work and small group activities. Classes will also include regular vocabulary peer-testing and student mini-presentations/discussions. There is also a self-study(homework) component to this course with students being expected to complete at least 1hour/lesson outside class.
