Being able to communicate your thinking to others involves mastering a wide variety of interactive communication skills. The complementary abilities to be able to persuade others and to listen to them are equally important, in social and global academic contexts, as well as in the world of work.

At Formal Communication Skills sessions, you will learn about presentation and interview techniques and British debating through playing fun games, acting, formal presentations and formal debating. You will receive individual, instant verbal feedback during the sessions and personal written feedback at the end of the programme.

Our instructors are Oxbridge graduates. They are experienced international debaters as well as having extensive experience in teaching debating workshops. Due to the format of British debating, which requires debaters to develop the skills and techniques required for ‘thinking on their feet’, this has proven to be very successful in encouraging quick thinking skills and the communication of your ideas succinctly in formal situations.
