English for Academic Study: Speaking

This fully updated 2012 edition of English for Academic Study: Speaking will help you develop the speaking and presentation skills you need to participate effectively in academic seminars and discussions.

The units are based on the following topics:

  • Being a successful student
  • Learning online
  • Changing roles in the family
  • A healthy lifestyle
  • The influence of the media
  • The world of work
  • Protecting the environment
  • Science and the paranormal
  • Studying in a new environment

Each unit includes discussions and presentations that relate to the topic of the unit. The written and listening texts will give you different perspectives on the topic and provide evidence to support your ideas – one of the essential features of academic life. There is also a learner diary at the end of each unit to help you think about the process of learning and the strategies you are developing.

The Course Book includes unit summaries to give you a quick overview of what you have covered, and a comprehensive glossary of terms. Each unit also has weblinks offering additional information and activities, relating to both speaking skills and the topics covered in the units. Visit the dedicated English for Academic Study website at www.englishforacademicstudy.com for even more resources.
