This week, we'll rehearse how to speak in public, in front of an audience or an examining board. At this point we are wondering what makes a good public speaker. We've come to the conclusion that in the Spanish educational system very little effort is put on training students to prepare a speech or to address an audience. And this is something that, sooner or later, we have to do for our professional development. There's little doubt that some people are better at communicating than others, but nevertheless, there are some useful techniques to improve speaking in front of an audience. You can find some of these tips in the video below. The Common Reference Framework also provides descriptors for this task. They can be very useful to assess yourself towards your own "speaking in public" competence. Have a look at them!
