This year ,26-27 April, the Faculty of Economics organises the 4th Project Presentation Day (PPD) where more than 180 students in German and 280 students in English present in 6 sections. The event came to exist in 2007 when Cecilia Tusa and Edit Komlósi, teaching business German and English courses that time, thought that students need to improve their presentation skills and teamwork. Although the course has undergone many changes the PPD is still an outstanding part of the Comprehensive Business Studies course. Why is it so successful and effective? The reason is obvious: it teaches learners to gain self-confidence to present in a foreign language both in front of their class-mates and lecturers and also professors of the Faculty, company leaders, managers and representatives. Since 2009 students are assessed by an independent evaluation board and the result is built in the students’ final assessment.
