课程英文简介:

 

Academic Communication English is open to participants who may use English in an academic context. It aims to help you develop and broaden your academic communication skills in English. The focus of this course is on appropriate speaking styles, effective procedures in preparing for an academic presentation, strategies to adopt on various academic communication occasions, and on building up fluency and confidence in public speaking. 


To achieve this goal, lectures in video, follow-up exercises, on-line discussions and some other interactive activities will be provided for you. They are grouped into three parts. In the first part, we deal with academic communication in a general way. Several key issues in this field will be discussed, such as the Differences Between Daily Conversation and Academic Presentation, Strategies to Overcome Stage Fright and the Appropriate Academic Speaking Style. In part two, we focus on how to make an effective academic presentation. Systematic and detailed guidance will be given to you on how to plan, structure, rehearse and deliver your presentation. In part three, we introduce some specific academic occasions to you, such as thesis defense, seminar, tutorial and international conference. You will get to know what people usually do on these occasions, how to make preparation for them and what communicative strategies you should adopt for these occasions.
