This book offers support for those who are not confident enough to give a memorable presentation.
This provides clear examples and feedback of what the public speaking student needs in order to achieve success. It is a wonderful accompaniment to lectures, as it gives the instructor room to include their own material while providing clear exercises the students can do on their own or as assignments.
Thank you for letting me see this book. Unfortunately, this workbook only meets some of my students’ needs for this course. I had assumed it would help students structure their speeches and suggested phrases. I also was hoping for a variety of speaking tasks to build confidence.
It would be helpful for native speakers in a public relations type course, but not with EFL students, unless the goal is one particular presentation. For example, this may be useful for preparing students who have to make a presentation as part of their leaving exams.
