Speaking for Yourself
As a student, and in any profession based on your studies, you need goodoral communication skills. It is therefore extremely important to developyour ability to converse, to discuss, to argue persuasively, and to speak inpublic. This is one reason why, whatever subject you study, you will beencouraged to discuss your work in seminars and you will have opportunitiesto give short talks or presentations.Most people probably take for granted their ability to speak, not thinkingmuch about it until they have to address an audience or attend an impor-tant interview. However, just as your first impressions of other people arebased on how they look and how they speak – so are their impressions of you. In every conversation, as well as when you give a talk or presentation,or are interviewed, you are not only conveying information about thesubject being discussed but also presenting yourself.
