Business English: Effective Presentations

Course Description

Whether a student’s goals are to improve English for professional, academic, or real-world purposes, the Advanced Level classes help them to achieve these goals.

This course focuses on preparing and delivering a well-organized and engaging business presentation, from start to finish. We will explore the foundations of what makes an effective presentation, beginning with an understanding of “big picture” concepts like audience, purpose, and flow. We will then explore the finer details of business presentations, such as persuasive speaking, non-verbal communication, the use of visuals, and answering audience questions. Throughout the course, students will develop and ultimately deliver their own presentations on a topic of their choosing and will receive individualized feedback from the instructor and peers.

Learning Objectives:

  • Deliver a well-organized and engaging business presentation that is suited to a particular audience and purpose
  • Use transitions and other organization techniques to create a sense of flow
