Inhoud van de cursus (alleen in het Engels beschikbaar)

The focus of English Presentation & Performance is on English presentations in a variety of settings. Consider, for example, (sales) pitches, academic presentations, and speeches. Each setting requires different language use and presentation techniques as well as confidence in speaking English. During the course, you will learn to adapt your style and content of the presentation to the situation and your audience. Language and communication strategies, theater techniques, and creativity play a central role in this. The lessons are interactive with ample feedback from both your instructor and your peers, but also include self-assessment. If possible, a visit to an English play or other form of theater will be arranged to study the performers' methods. In addition, you will spend part of the course improving your overall language proficiency.

TIP: Take English Presentation & Performance together with the 3 ECTS course English Speaking & Pronunciation.
