L2 UK Media Oral presentations
Any student may now send me an email to say which subject they would like to talk about. If your subject is already taken, I will ask you to choose another.
Note that if you have prepared a slide presentation on a Mac computer, you should come with your computer *and with an adapter so that our HDMI/VGA cables can display your slideshow.
Remember we have internet in the classroom, so if you are presenting a podcast or a TV programme, you can show a short extract.
Here are your dates.
Note that your date will not change. If for any reason I am absent one week (ill, for example), the people who were supposed to give a presentation that week will do it at the end of the semester (probably on zoom as an oral outside class). The people on the calendar in the following weeks will not change their date.
We missed one class because of the movement to defend pensions. Although I am too old to be personally affected, I want to support others. There may be other classes affected, but I will make sure everybody has a chance to give a talk, one way or another.
Your talk will last eight minutes (seven is acceptable). I will stop you after eight minutes
The aim of your exposé is to say everything which is interesting about your subject. Just explain what kind of magazine/podcast/show it is, who reads or listens to it and why, in your opinion? What do they talk about? What are its strong points? How successful is it? Is it typically British? Is anything surprising about it? etc etc Give some typical examples of front pages, of articles, of letters, of illustrations, of adverts etc.
The links given in the list below are just to help *the other students* see what they are going to learn about - the person doing the exposé will need more.
The people who go first have first choice of subject. I will add more subjects so that even people at the end have a little choice.
All marks will be given at the end of the semester.
Any questions - email me at john dot mullen at univ hyphen rouen dot fr
