- Key language features of academic writing Reports Speaking Workshop
Tables illustrate a different sort of data from line graphs, bar charts and pie charts. They require slightly different language and the ability to analyse information in a different way. Although tables are not necessarily harder than any other kind of data to describe, they can be particularly challenging as they present more data. This means you need to be selective with what to include and what not to include. In this lesson you will learn how to summarise information in a table and be able to present the main features. You will use a variety of structures for making comparisons and approximations and learn how to state what you are referring to in a simple way.
In this workshop, we will:
practise verbally summarising a simple table.
build the language of comparisons and approximations.
practise distinguishing between presenting more important data from less important data.
Working with tables is a workshop
The session is 90 minutes long.
This workshop is repeated each month.
