Key features

At some time or other most of us have to make a presentation of some sort. Speaking to an audience can be a very challenging experience in one’s own language, let alone in a foreign one.

Presenting addresses both the skills and the language required for giving effective presentations.

The six units cover:

  • The first few minutes.
  • Using equipment.
  • Organising what you want to say.
  • Maintaining interest.
  • Dealing with problems and questions.
  • Summarising and concluding.

Presenting provides six core units, each containing these sections:

  • warmer to raise awareness of the skills involved in effective communication and to introduce different strategies for developing these skills.
  • presentation and practice of core language connected to each skill.
  • over to you, which allows students to apply what they have learned to their real-life work situation.

In addition, the book contains:

  • a needs analysis to help learners to think about their strengths and weaknesses in English and to identify and prioritize their learning needs
  • a personal learning journal to help students monitor their learning during the course
  • a review to help consolidate the language work students have done in each unit
  • a reference section listing the vocabulary, grammar and phrases covered in each unit
  • an answer key, including suggested answers and audio scripts

Presenting is designed for classroom use, but is also suitable for self-study.
