In this advanced oral communication course, students learn and practise effective presentation and discussion skills. The focus is on how to
help listeners better understand what you are saying. Students learn how to organize information effectively and how to give oral
presentations. Students explore elements of effective oral communication and practise some pronunciation and intonation.

Participants will become familiar with conference practices and phraseology. They can volunteer to be chair or assessors of scientific or
host qualities. They will learn to prepare a set of slides for a conference presentation, discuss their version with the teacher, and rewrite it. They will analyze and give feedback on their classmates' presentation rehearsals and final presentations, They themselves
give a PowerPoint presentation at a multidisciplinary 'conference' at the end of the course. They will learn how to ask and answer questions
on the basis of conference papers during post-presentation discussions.



Conference presentations are videotaped and discussed together in the feedback sessions. The participants will also practise how to chair paper sessions and introduce speakers. Students are responsible for presenting information, either individually or as members of a small panel team, then opening up the floor for group interaction and guiding discussion. Audience members play a reciprocal listener/speaker role by paraphrasing points made, asking for clarification, offering their own viewpoints and raising related issues.
