“Language” is a specific criterion of the individual oral presentation that students must give as part of the IB English course. By looking at the language we use when we speak and comparing it to the language expected when presenting, a greater appreciation of how we should deliver a commentary is provided. The concepts of register, language choice, vocabulary and evenness of expression are considered. The PowerPoint and workbook (which is the last in a series of four) attempts to encourage students to appreciate that language is used differently in different forums.
There are three other titles in this series that complement and build a fuller profile of the IB Oral:-
Knowledge and Understanding
Organization and Presentation
