Campus Gotland

Workshop 1: English for International Students: Oral Communication

During the autumn term 2018, the Language Workshop will offer two workshops for international students at Campus Gotland. The first workshop will deal with oral presentation skills. International students at Campus may sign up for one or both of the workshops. Both workshops are primarily intended for free-movers.*

Workshop 1: Oral Communication

Content: In this workshop, you will be given tools and feedback aimed at helping you improve your spoken English. Among other things, the workshop will focus on oral presentation technique, academic discussions, and fluency strategies. You will also receive individual feedback on a short oral presentation in English. By the end of the day, you should feel more confident and comfortable speaking English in academic settings!

Target group: This workshop is primarily intended for international students on the undergraduate- and master’s levels who are so-called free movers. Students must be registered at Uppsala University in order to take the course. Exchange students and international PhD students may apply for the course but will be placed on a waiting list, and offered a place in the workshop if there are vacancies at the end of the registration period.

There are no language prerequisites (apart from those necessary to be admitted to the university).
