Effective Public Speaking is a website with sentences, tips and very entertaining exercises that will allow you to prepare and practise your forthcoming presentation in English.
This Web page is organized into several very useful sections:
- Starting a Presentation: sentences and exercises to show you how to get people’s attention, welcome them, introduce yourself, state the purpose of your presentation and state how you want to deal with questions.
- Signposting: sentences and exercises to use when you want to change to a completely different topic, when you want to give more details about a topic and when you want to refer to an earlier point, etc.
- A Friendly Face: when doing a presentation it’s very common to feel nervous. Give yourself some support from the audience by looking for people that will encourage you (showing attention or with a friendly demeanour) when you need a boost.
Remember: there’s no need to feel embarrassed when talking in English and doing your presentation; we are all learning. Successful people in the world of business and politicians make a valiant effort when they have to talk in English.
