Mehr über den Autor

Adrian Wallwork is the author of around 30 English Language Teaching textbooks published by: Springer Science, Oxford University Press, BBC, Cambridge University Press, Scholastic, De Agostini, and Vallardi.

He lives and works in Pisa, Italy where he enjoys the sun, the wine, and teaching PhD students from all over the world.

His dream book, which he hopes to have published in the near future, is a book to teach native English speakers to communicate more effectively with their non-native colleagues, clients, audience etc. Given the fact that there are only 500 million native speakers, and at least 2.5 billion non-native speakers, it hardly seems fair that the minority make it so hard for the majority!!

Pressestimmen

From the reviews:

“Specifically written for non-native speakers of English it will also be very useful for anyone who is a native English speaker too. It is written both for those who have never presented before in English and are very nervous at the prospect and those with experience who simply want tips on how to improve their international conference or meeting presentation skills. … I can highly recommend this book which is also reasonably priced.” (Hashim Hashim and Jane Meijlink, ICS News, Vol. 7 (1), January, 2011)

“This slim book is aimed at presenters with English as their second language (ESL), and specifically at scientific researchers––an unfortunate choice, as this book has far broader appeal. It provides a great introduction for anyone who must learn the art of presentations and a refresher for experienced presenters. … I can unreservedly recommend this book for ESL presenters, English presenters with ESL audiences, and anyone who needs to learn or polish their presentation skills.” (Geoff Hart, Technical Communication, Vol. 58 (4), November, 2011)

“This book, easy to understand, will focus on the issues faced by those non native English speakers. It is designed to help them by providing them with rules and tips on, for instance, gaining and maintaining audience attention, handling questions and answers from the audience as well as highlighting examples taken from real presentations. This guide is thus also highly recommended for trainers in English for academic purposes.” (ESNA – Bulletin, Issue 83, December, 2011)

“Wallwork has written a helpful guide for those who struggle with presenting scientific results in person.  The book is mainly intended for scientific speakers for whom English is not their primary language, but is also useful for native English speakers who have never presented before or who want to improve their presentation skills. In addition, I’d like to add that the book is also useful for experienced presenters.

The book is written as a resource guide and … offers useful and practical advice. …  Every chapter starts with an explanation as to why the point [Wallwork] makes is important. … In the book you’ll find advice on how to effectively use English without getting stuck on difficult words or tortuous constructions, how to create effective and complementary slides, and how you and your slides can combine effectively during your presentation, so that the impact is as memorable as possible.

I … recommend this book for anyone who is seeking to gain confidence as a scientific speaker or who wants to improve his or her presentation skills. Although the ‘Death-by-Powerpoint’ syndrome, characterised by slide after slide filled with formal and long texts…delivered in a monotonous drone … that leaves you feeling sleepy, … is still is ever-present around us, this book could be the right antidote for those who are willing to battle the syndrome.” (Linda M. Liem, The Write Stuff – The Journal of the European Medical Writers Association)

4.0 von 5 Sternen great for ELT and EAP trainers 23. Januar 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
I haven't come across a book like this before that is tailored specifically for non-native speakers. It contains loads of ideas not just for the students for whom it is intended but also indirectly for trainers like myself. It basically addresses all the fears my students have and comes up with sensible and feasible solutions. Even the shyest student should be able to do a reasonable presentation after reading this book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great book 25. November 2010
Von Melanie - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am not a researcher myself, but I do have to give presentations as I work for a company that has many international customers. I found it really useful because it helped me reduce my worries about the English language by showing me that I should:

* write out what I wanted to say
* use very short sentences which are easy to say (and also easy for the audience to understand)
* focus on pronouncing key words correctly (the book suggests using the Adobe 'read aloud' function to help with pronunciation)
* write a minimal amount of text
* and much other useful advice.

The book also contains a section on 'useful phrases' i.e. the standard phrases to use in a presentation. For the first time I felt confident about my presentation, and also my boss was really satisfied. I would really recommend this book to anyone who has to make a presentation in English.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Really useful! 24. November 2010
Von Mat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I found the book really useful.
It's really inspiring. It explains how do make convincing presentations that get the audience attention.
It's not only that. People go to presentations, and conferences in general, not just to be informed about hot topics in their research area. I believe that a crucial factor is also to meet key people in the hope of setting up a collaboration. I am an economist and in this book I found a wealth of information telling me how to write and deliver the kind of presentation that will motivate members of the audience to come and up and speak to me at the end of the presentation and/or during social events. The only comment I would make is that it would have been nice to have had more input on how to use Powerpoint, but given that this book is primarily on the English language part of presentations, then I suppose that would have been beyond the scope of the book.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent for non natives in all disciplines 22. November 2010
Von giovanni liotine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Although this book seems to be intended for academics, I found it extremely useful myself as a software developer. I frequently have to go to clients and do demos in English, not a task that I particularly enjoy even though my English is of a Cambridge Proficiency level. This book has helped me overcome my fears and to understand that communication is two-way - if I don't understand my client's questions during the demo, I am not afraid to ask them to speak more slowly.

I also found the advice about keeping graphs, tables and figures as simple as possible. Before reading this book, I found that my clients often stared at my slides without really understanding them - both because of the very complex graphs and because I filled them with too much text.

This is a great book and is written in a very essential style that is easy to follow and consult.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Amazingly useful! 22. November 2010
Von maddalena menchi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I have a PhD in Linguistics and a Masters in Translation of Post-colonial Literature. Although I believe my level of English is already high, I found this book incredibly useful for giving oral presentations of my work. What it proved to me is that in reality my main problem, and presumably that of many non-native presenters, is not really due to problems in English but much more due to the structure, slides full of redundant text, and to a general lack of thought for the audience. This book has suggestions for researchers who have already presented on many occasions, to those who have never done a presentation before. What helped me in particular was useful advice on how to differentiate my presentation from those of other presenters at the conference. I managed to do this by adopting a more relaxed and informal tone, by considerably reducing the amount of information to give the audience, and by learning to be a little more entertaining - not easy things to do, but this book told me how.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Perfect for presentations in all languages, not just English 17. Januar 2011
Von dopoazenda - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I am a PhD student in Philosophy and I occasionally I have to present my work to an international audience. Before reading this book I was extremely nervous about giving presentations, but this book has helped me overcome all my problems and I am now much more confident (though not perfect yet!). I think the most important thing I learned as that I tend to make the same 'mistakes' in presentations independently of whether I am giving the presentation in English or Italian (my mother tongue) - in fact, provided that you practice enough, the English language is not really the main problem. More important is good clear slides and a lot of preparation. My only reason for not giving this book five stars is that if would have been useful to have an accompanying DVD.
