Multimedia-Enhanced English Presentation Training With the Audience in Mind


This study presents the initial findings from a comprehensive 16-week presentation skills training program designed for Taiwanese college students who possess intermediate to advanced English proficiency. The program utilized multimedia tutorials on infographics and various presentation tools, and provided one-on-one diagnostic sessions as well as workshops by field experts on modern presentation requirements which included communication proficiency and visual hierarchy. The study found that the training significantly improved the students' understanding of effective English presentations, resulting in increased cohesion of verbal-visual communication skills. The program also resulted in a growth of presenters’ awareness of the audience. It strongly validates the effectiveness of a multimodal approach to training nonnative English speakers, highlighting the importance of including linguistic and visual components in presentation training for academic and professional success.
