How to Give a Speech in Front of an Audience
In this seminar the participants will make presentations which become progressively more complex, and are closely linked to your work.
The many practical exercises will help you to deeply integrate the appropriate linguistic formulae (vocabulary, expressions, syntax, style).
For professionals who wish to increase their impact when giving a presentation in a foreign language.
At Which Levels ?
From B1 to C2.
A0 - Real Beginner: You have never learnt anything in the target language, even if you know a dozen words.
A1 - False Beginner: You know between 50 and 100 words in the target language. You use stereotyped sentences like: "What time is it?".
A2 - Lower Intermediate: You can have a short conversation with simple sentences over well-known subjects, often in the present. Orally, you understand simple sentences in relation with well-known subjects.
B1 - Intermediate: You can have a conversation with complex sentences (subclauses) in the present, the past and the future. You understand complete texts relating to well-known subjects (good passive knowledge). You write elaborate texts. Grammar is still approximate. You lack vocabulary in some daily topics.
B2 - Advanced Intermediate : At this professional level you can present your company, handle diffcult questions, deal with simple negotiation. You have good oral and written proficiency. Grammar is globally mastered but not all the rules are used spontaneously. You have difficulty using idioms. You still lack precise vocabulary.
C1 - Advanced : You have a good command of the language. Generally the grammar is actively mastered. You are able to negotiate and manage difficult situations. You still lack very precise vocabulary and idioms. The target language does not sound completely like a native one yet.
C2 - Very Advanced : You have a very good command of the language, close to bilingualism. Very precise vocabulary and adequate idioms are sometimes missing to communicate freely and use a metaphorical language.
