Skills: giving a short presentation
As someone new to the English language it is important to KISS = Keep It Short and Simple
The checklist below can help you to give a nicely structured presentation:
At the beginning of your presentation you should always welcome your audience, i.e. your class and your teacher.
Then tell the audience the topic of your presentation.
What makes a presentation really good is if you speak without any notes, because then you can maintain eye-contact with your classmates and your teacher.
It is also clever to think about and research some useful phrases for the presentation so you have some guidance.
When you have designed a poster make sure it is structured, readable, has some colours and some photos in it.
At the end of the presentation you should ask if anybody has any questions.
Last, thank the audience for their attention.
When you get the feedback from your teacher, make sure to write down some important pointers for your next presentation!
