1504 Media English 2
Campus: Unter den Eichen
is a required course for second-semester Media Management students,
which supports them as they continue to improve their English and, in
particular, their ability to make presentations in English, using
common Anglo-Saxon presentation techniques. Building on their
presentation experience in the Media English 1 course, students will
focus on learning the language and skills they need to move fluently
through a presentation. Class participants will prepare and give an
individual as well as a longer group presentation. The topics for the
group presentations will be chosen in cooperation with one of the media
program’s divisions (management, design, technology). Students will
also participate in a course blog, analyzing TED talks. In addition,
the ability to speak freely and fluently will continue to be developed
through group discussions.
Students will receive a grade, based upon active participation and successful completion of all assignments (in-class presentations, blog entries/comments and peer feedback).
This course has an attendance requirement: students must attend 75% of all class meetings. Further absences will affect the final grade. A 15-minute late arrival counts as an absence. Late assignments and presentations will also affect the course grade.
