Making Conversation with Powerful People

ELI Winter 2020 Graduate Workshop Series
Thursday, January 30, 2020
6:00-8:00 PM
G127 Angell Hall Map
Making conversation can be one of the most challenging types of speaking to master in a second language. This can be particularly true with people in a position of authority, such as one’s research advisor, work supervisor, or future employer. In this workshop, we will explore conversation topics, turn-taking strategies, active listening, and sources for sample conversations. We will consider different types of conversations, such as seeming friendly and confident at a job interview or competent and insightful in a research group meeting.

Come ready to practice with one another and to identify effective ways to practice on your own.
