SUMMARY

Public Speaking in American English: A Guide for Non-Native Speakers, 1/e Nancy Grass Hemmert, Santa MonicaCollege Through discussion of culture, language, and diversity, Public Speaking in American English: A Guide for Non-Native Speakers offers real world advice about overcoming the most pressing, relevant, and stress-provoking speaking issues non-native students face. Designed specifically for non-native English speakers, this book follows the traditional public speaking textbook format, but also offers students a sense of the larger community of non-native English speakers, such as LEPand ESL students, who face the same struggles, challenges, and concerns. Every chapter is infused with discussion about the relevant cultural and linguistic issues students are likely to face as well as concrete suggestions on how to address, compensate for, and/or overcome these difficulties. Specific exercises and activities (both within the chapter and at the end of each chapter) allow students to work on their own or in a class to improve their skills set. Additionally, the writing style, though easy to read, challenges the non-native English speaker without frustrating the reader. Features: Considering Culture boxes in every chapter investigate the similarities and differences in public speaking within various U.S. co-cultures and other cultures around the world,helpingstudents find connections that go beyond language and aid in their understanding of public speaking. Considering Language marginal notes explore the connections between public speaking topics and other languages, enabling students to weave together their understanding of their native language with public speaking. What Others Say feature offers anecdotes, stories, quotations and quips from non-native public speaking students, expressing the distinctive challenges and experiences that affect the non-native English speaker and enabling students to see that they are a part of a unique community of speakers. Hint features within every chapter reveal quick tips for planning, preparing, putting together, and practicing speeches. Try This boxes in each chapter provide quick exercises and activities to reinforce the new content and allow students to put what they have learned into practice immediately.Grass Hemmert, Nancy is the author of 'Public Speaking in American English: A Guide for Non-Native Speakers', published 2007 under ISBN 9780205430994 and ISBN 0205430996.
