We are happy to announce that our latest workshops on English for Academics are now ready for your application! For this fiscal year, the workshops will take place twice on Komaba and Hongo campuses.
There is a growing need to emphasize the skills in delivering presentations and lectures in English for building one’s academic career.
Nowadays, the skills at teaching in English are requirements for many academic jobs.
This workshop focuses on logical structuring of lectures and presentations in English, effective use of English expressions, and techniques for answering questions in English. An instructor from British Council offers you an interactive and practical training program which enables you to acquire the skills at delivering lectures and presentations in a more comprehensible and effective way.
We look forward to welcoming you!
