Abstract

This study examines the role of oral presentations in an Integrating Content and Language in Higher Education (ICLHE) classroom at the College of Law, Sultan Qaboos University (SQU) Sultanate of Oman. Forty four mixed-ability English for Law students were divided into 11 groups with each group required to present a different topic pertinent to Law in English. Each of the students was then asked to complete a 36-item self report questionnaire about the experience. The analysis of the data and discussion revealed that the participants found the experience relevant for their academic and professional lives. The data analysis and discussion further showed that such experience has positive effects on English language education policy implementation in Oman.
