About this book

Introduction

Good presentation skills are key to a successful career in academia. This guide provides examples taken from real presentations given both by native and non-native academics covering a wide variety of disciplines.

The easy-to-follow guidelines and tips will teach you how to: 
  • plan, prepare and practice a well-organized, interesting presentation
  • avoid errors in English by using short easy-to-say sentences
  • improve your English pronunciation and intonation
  • gain confidence, and overcome nerves and embarrassment
  • highlight the essential points you want your audience to remember
  • attract and retain audience attention
  • deal with questions from the audience
This new edition contains several additional features, including stimulating factoids and discussion points both for self-study and in-class use. New chapters also cover:
  • interacting successfully with non-native audiences
  • posters
EAP teachers will find this book to be a great source of tips for training students, and for preparing both instructive and entertaining lessons.

Other books in the series cover: writing research papers; English grammar, usage, and style; academic correspondence; interacting on campus; plus exercises books and a teacher's guide.
