|教育目的／授業目標||English oral presentation is firmly established in the twenty-first century as a primary form of professional and scientific communication. This subject aims to develop students' proficiency in this mode of English communication through the development and presentation of their own research. Additionally, this subject scaffolds students' abilities to present their research to a wider audience by examining successful (and unsuccessful) presentations from a broad range of professional fields.|

Students examine oral presentation skills from three angles: the physical message, including posture, voice and body language; the visual message, including slide design and effective use; and the story message, including the basic format and functions of an introduction, body, and conclusion, along with useful English phrases.|
