23-26 February 2016
PROVISIONAL PROGRAMME Module 3: Presentation and Public Speaking Skills
Characteristics of successful presentations;
Chunking and pacing;
Dealing with questions;
Nerves and stage fright;
The purpose of this workshop is to help you improve your performance in delivering presentations and
public speaking both in terms of the English language and communication skills. An important element
of this course is also to address the issue of confidence in order to help you overcome any fears you
may have of speaking in front of an audience. Your own knowledge and experience of the subject will
also be of great value in group discussions and exchanging best practices.
You will be led through a series of input sessions from the trainer which will allow you to reflect on your
current practice and develop areas that you feel need particular attention. There will be plenty of
opportunities to practise each point in various formats e.g. mini-presentations, discussions, controlled
exercises. Each mini-presentation will have an observer, either the trainer or trainee, who has a list of
criteria to observe and comment on at the end of the activity. The debriefing process is of great importance
and you will be given advice on how to do this constructively in order to support each other in the learning
process. The sessions lead up to the final day where you will be asked to deliver a short 10-minute
presentation which will be filmed. The filmed presentation is particularly helpful in highlighting certain
aspects of your performance.

We believe that teaching should be learner-centred and should help participants develop strategies
that work both inside and outside the classroom. We recognise that learners have different aims, world
knowledge, learning styles and experiences and that motivation is crucial to successful learning.
We seek to create an enjoyable learning environment in which participants develop their language,
learning and study skills in order to enable them to use English in as wide a variety of situations as
possible. At the same time, we work to provide opportunities for personal and professional
We value the different approaches, styles, techniques and personalities that each trainer brings to
the classroom and encourage teachers to innovate, experimenting with new ideas and activities.
