Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungThrough discussion of culture, language and diversity, Public Speaking in American English: A Guide for Non-native Speakersoffers real world advice about overcoming the most pressing, relevant, and stress-provoking speaking issues non-native public speakers face. Designed specifically for non-native English speakers, this book follows the traditional public speaking textbook format, but also offers students a sense of the larger community of non-native English speakers, LEP, and ESL students who face the same struggles, challenges, and concerns. Every chapter is infused with discussion about the relevant cultural and linguistic issues the students are likely to face as well as concrete suggestions on how to address, compensate for and/or overcome these difficulties. Specific exercises and activities (both within the chapter and at the end of each chapter) allow readers to work on their own or in a group to improve their skills set. Additionally, the writing style, though easy to read, challenges the non-native English speaker without frustrating the reader.
