Resume:


Your resume may be the most important document you will produce in your professional life. To produce an effective resume, you need to know about both the functions and language of resumes.

A resume, or curriculum vitae (CV), is a record of your history and achievements in a concise yet comprehensive form. An effective resume does not summarise everything you have done in your life. Details of your education and qualifications are essential, but other information should be carefully selected. Provide information about past activities that demonstrate your suitability for activities in the future.

Telephoning Skills:


You are probably used to making informal calls to family and friends. When making calls to companies, however, some special rules and conventions apply. In this package we explain how to call someone in a company that you do not know personally (the most common kind of formal call made by students) and give you some models and language that you can use.


Public Speech:


Public speaking is speaking to a group of people in a structured, deliberate manner. It is a form of communication that adds to the knowledge and wisdom of listeners, or that influences their attitudes or behaviour. In public speaking, as in any form of communication, there are five basic elements, often expressed as "who is saying what to whom utilizing what medium with what effects?" This package contains live examples and the text of a supplement to The Art of Public Speaking.


Short Stories:


A true short-story is something other and something more than a mere story which is short. A true short-story differs from the novel chiefly in its essential unity of impression. In a far more exact and precise use of the word, a short-story has unity as a novel cannot have it.... A short-story deals with a single character, a single event, a single emotion, or the series of emotions called forth by a single situation. In his module you have many short stories with quiz option.


Idioms:

An idiom is an expression whose meaning is not compositional - that is, whose meaning does not follow from the meaning of the individual words of which it is composed. For example, the English phrase to kick the bucket means to die. A listener knowing the meaning of kick and bucket will not thereby be able to predict that the expression can mean to die. Idioms are often, though perhaps not universally, classified as figures of speech.

The English language is full of idioms (over 15,000). Native speakers of English use idioms all the time, often without realising that they are doing so. This means that communication with native speakers of English can be quite a confusing experience. Our package has sorted/classified the idioms based on the categories.

Letters:

Letters to companies are formal letters in which you need to follow certain rules and conventions. As a student there are several kinds of letters that you might write to companies: to make arrangements, to confirm arrangements, to thank someone for a service or to apply for a job. The most important letters you will write are job application letters. In this package we offer you some general advice on writing letters to companies and some specific advice on job application letters.

E-Correspondence:

E-mail is a quick and convenient way of communicating. It is faster than a letter and often more convenient than a telephone call. You are probably used to exchanging e-mail with friends using highly informal language. In this package you will learn more about the form and language of e-mail in professional contexts.

Presentation:

Making a good oral presentation is an art that involves attention to the needs of your audience, careful planning, and attention to delivery. This package explains some of the basics of effective oral presentation. It also covers use of notes, visual aids and computer presentation software.

Writing (Reports):

Writing is one of the most critical skills a student develops in high school. It is also one of the most frustrating for students to master. By using a methodical approach, you can defuse some of that frustration, while helping students learn that writing is as much about process as product.

Written reports are frequently used to convey information within the workplace. Reports can be informal (e-mails, memos, letters, etc.) or formal. This package focuses on writing skills.

Reading Skills:

The ability to effectively read is critical to the success of a student in any subject area. Yet many students experience difficulty in mastering this skill. Engaging students in active reading practices can help them become more involved in their reading, thus aiding comprehension and retention. In this package, we focus on specific active reading strategies you can use with your students today.
 

Listening Skills:

Students need to practice and acquire skills to be good listeners, because a speaker cannot throw you information in the same manner that a dart player tosses a dart at a passive dartboard. Information is an intangible substance that must be sent by the speaker and received by an active listener. In this package, we focus on specific listening strategies.
