[Theme of this course: Speak English!: Easy to Learn]
This course provides an easy-to-learn, practical approach to speaking English on general topics. Students need not do research online, write out or memorize the entire content. They just follow the skills instructed and will be able to give an organized presentation with solid content. The skills can also be applied to giving Chinese presentations. This course is suitable for students of any levels.
The SENM program, an extension program of the FENM program, is a student-centered course focusing on students′ learning needs and interests. The course design features a small-class (no more than 25 students) learning and four modules. These four modules are: Multiculturalism, Presentation and Public Speaking, Career and Profession, and Daily Communication. All modular courses are semester-based; so each SENM student can choose two different modules according to their individual learning needs in one academic year. Within each module, there are different sub-themes, or topics, around which the course curriculum is built. Various class activities such as discussions, exhibitions, competitions, and presentations are incorporated to strengthen students′ English competence.
This specific course belongs to the Module of Presentation and Public Speaking. This module enhances students′ oral presentation techniques. It also helps students to improve their listening skills and boost their confidence in public speaking.
On completion of the course, students should be able to
1) deliver a variety of formal and informal presentations in English;
2) present ideas clearly with emphasis on effective use of verbal and nonverbal communication skills;
3) demonstrate critical thinking skills in daily life communication, both as a speaker and as a listener; and
4) express their ideas in English more confidently.
