Course objectives
The seminar focuses on creating presentations in English. Attention will be paid to individual parts of the presentation structure (introduction, information core, conclusion), with a special focus on useful techniques and language resources (expressions, phrases, links and phrases). After completing the course, the student will be able to create logically structured and informationally valuable presentations in English. Through interpretation and project work (creation of own presentations on assigned topics) they will learn to use techniques and language tools used, among other things, to gain and maintain the audience's attention or to strengthen the coherence of the information presented. Attention will also be paid to the presentation of numerical data (numbers, values, their development and trends) and their graphical representation (graphs, tables, diagrams, etc.).

- identify and summarize the main features of successful presentations;
