Why choose the Academic Presentations course?

Students in higher education and academics often need to present their ideas in English as part of their studies or research. This usually represents a significant step up for most people, even when they are already fluent and confident using English in everyday situations. As a result, students require a more specialist course including dedicated one-on-one teacher time to achieve their required level. Lingu's Academic Presentations course fulfills this need.

The course focuses on: academic-level speaking skills and confidence, and allows participants to use their own academic work as course material so that the skills learnt in class can immediately be applied to their studies and research. Students learn how to isolate the key ideas from their work and train strategies for communicating these clearly and effectively to target audiences. In addition to this, they review and train their general speaking skills and learn appropriate terms for giving presentations in academic settings. Students also get the opportunity to clarify any longstanding doubts and work on their own presenting and speaking skills in one-to-one sessions with their teacher.

After just one course, students will elevate their English presenting skills to the level required of them in academia!

Course objectives:

  • Improve higher level and academic speaking skills in English
  • Learn how to isolate key ideas and present them appropriately to target audiences
  • Increase clarity and accuracy of spoken English
  • Understand appropriate style and level of formality
