This course is designed especially for professionals who speak English as an additional language. Improve your pronunciation, fluency and presence in speaking English publicly.

Using the same strategies professional speakers and actors use, build your confidence in different speaking situations, such as talking to one person, or presenting in a team meeting or in front of a large audience.

What You’ll Learn

  • Use improvisation exercises to handle on-the-spot communications or scenarios where quick thinking is needed
  • Control breath flow to influence sound, speech and delivery
  • Control and manage body language, eye contact and facial expressions
  • Address and manage nerves/stage fright in a variety of situations
  • Organize speech content into templates
  • Use emphasis of key words to create greater impact
  • Slow down speech
  • Practice formal and casual pronunciation, intonation and word choice

By the end of the course, you’ll have practised the entire speech process, from planning your speech to execution. Every class includes a combination of theory/technique and speaking practice.

The master of data science at UBC was developed by the university's Computer Science and Statistics Departments to give students interested in data science a fast track to a great career. I'm just starting the degree, but so far I'm impressed by the students in my cohort, who are not only smart but passionate about applying what they learn to their careers and various research interests. I chose the program because of how practical I thought it would be compared to some other master's programs. The schedule so far is intense, with courses packed into two and four-week sessions that us cover topics in depth. I'll come back to leave a longer review after I graduate, but so far I'm very glad I chose this program.
