In this course, students will develop and practise the oral communication skills required to give academic presentations on a variety of literary and cultural themes to English-speaking audiences. In addition to focusing upon important linguistic, organisational and structural dimensions of academic presentations, the course will enable students to investigate what makes spoken academic discourse in English different to German. Techniques for boosting confidence when speaking and for interacting effectively with English-speaking academic audiences will also be developed. Careful consideration will also be given to the role of voice, intonation and prosody when presenting in English.
This course will be taught synchronously.
