The Linguistic Performance, English department and Public Speaking

English department is loaded with students and instructors having THE talent or the potential to become great presenters. Some of them even make money during college years. English had a chat with some of them to learn how being in the English department helps them with their emci-ing and presenting jobs.  With the experience of  3 – 14 years on the job, the interviewees responses are recorded as follow:

Question #1

How about being an English dept student help you with your development?

Being an EDept student had helped to get us exposed to art works and numbers; also the skills given throughout the college years had boosted our  confidence in performing, especially in English. Public speaking has many things to do with our language proficiency. Being students of English department, we have been learning many things that contribute to language skills. Therefore, our public speaking skill increases as I learn language skill and knowledge in my campus. Being English dept student also enriches  us with  more reference, ideas, and basically pointing out the right method to present our communication in English.

Question #2

Are there any particular skills that you feel you have required by being in the English department?

We believe our  skills to pronounce words has gotten  better as we  learned phonology and pronunciation. Aside from this, our other skills such as reading, speaking, writing, and listening have also been improved significantly.We  have to say that it all comes in one package, to me personally.

Question #3

Besides listening and speaking, do you find reading and writing skills help you sharpen your public speaking skills?

Yes, indeed. Reading helps to broaden our knowledge which we can add to the subject-related presentations and writing leads to a better structure. Reading and writing do help sharpen such skills. If  we read and listen a lot, we will learn many new words. The more words we know, the better we will communicate with people. Besides learning words, a lot of information and knowledge can be acquired from listening and reading. How well our  public speaking skills are often judged by how much we know. Therefore, we deduce that reading and listening help such skills as they allow to to learn new words and acquire much information or knowledge. In addition to that reading gives us more input and reference to our brain, while writing practice our logic of the speaking itself. ( irf)
