“I took Spoken Communication: Academic Presentations because after giving and attending some academic presentations, I could see differences between native English speakers and my own way of presenting. The top things I learned were tips to emphasize important points such as pausing, stress, and intonation, which are not commonly used in my mother tongue. Other students should take this course because what you learn in this course can be applied not only to your presentations but also to talks in general contexts, especially in formal situations.”
“I took Written Communication: Standards and Conventions because I was not confident in my writing skills and I wanted to improve. I learned the rules of writing, how to write a paper, and what the professors want. International students should take this class because they have to learn a totally different writing system.”
