  • be well written using correct grammar, spelling, and punctuation (use spellchecker!!!)
  • include a glossary of important expressions used.
  • You will have to send the written version by email before the 3rd December 2012:.
    • Using your unican email addresses
    • Including an Introduction ( with a presentation of the group members), a glossary of important vocab you have learnt, it will also help the audience to follow your presentation), a division of the contents, and the references you have used for your reseach.
    • Times New Roman 12, double-spaced typing.

3. Oral Presentation: Each team will have 30 minutes to complete their presentation.
Reading won’t be allowed, you will have to explain the case in a simple way, using the appropriate language to deliver oral presentations, linkers… , visual aid will help you.

Recommendations:
  • Plan your research
  • Divide the issues you’ll deal with among the members of your team.
  • Use web tools for collaborative work, particularly interesting if it’s difficult for you to have regular meetings.
  • Use prezi or power point to deliver your presentation.
  • Choose the language from the oral speech rather than from the written one.
  • Practice your presentation in front of a mirror and record yourself.
