Designed for advanced non-native speakers working in professional contexts, this course focuses on the development of clear, effective presentation skills in English, with specific attention to the accurate use of American English sounds, stress, and intonation. Students will present to small and large groups, learning how best to organize information to gain and keep audience attention. The goals are to develop confidence, fluency, and accuracy when presenting in English. Two presentations per student will be recorded for analysis and personalized instructor feedback. Students may also complete individual audio recordings for further instructor feedback.
