Passport to Academic Presentations

Passport to Academic Presentations aims to demystify the entire process of giving oral presentations in an academic context by examining each of the different stages in turn. No prior knowledge is assumed, and students are gradually introduced to a set of core language and skills, allowing them to tackle oral presentations in an academic context with increased confidence and fluency.

A key feature of the course it is focus on transferability; students are encouraged to apply the material to their own specific subject areas throughout. Each unit also contains advice on pronunciation and tips for improving oral presentation delivery.

All the presentations on the accompanying audio CD have been recorded on DVD for added clarity.

"This is a hands-on, pragmatic book that should greatly boost students' confidence when giving presentations."

- Paul Sofer, University of Sussex

"There are very few materials for teachers showing academic presentations, so the DVD accompanying this book will be welcomed by many EAP teachers. Presentations cover topics such as the IELTS exam, the Loch Ness Monster, and global warming. The book claims the skills here are 'transferable' to other student contexts. As such, it works very well: the six units cover sound but predictable ground, such as openings, dealing with questions and using visual aids. Appropriate attention is paid to phonology, but there is a lack of input on referencing sources. This slim book (68 pages) should work as a springboard for students to deliver their own presentations."

- Pete Sharma for the EL Gazette, Issue 351, April 2009
