On the other hand, a student workshop was held to enhance students’ English speaking and presentation skills. It has been our honor that Mr. Pavol Dutko (Tutor, EdFun Limited) was able to join us to be the speaker. Throughout the workshop, he provided useful tips and guidelines for students to reinforce their presentation techniques. In order to be a good English speaker, Mr. Dutko said, we could manipulate our voice, gesture and facial expression to draw the audiences’ attention. He also demonstrated with pictures and interactive mini-games to get students involved into the workshop.
