GETTING STARTED
How often do you give presentations in your job?
When was the last time you gave a presentation in

English? Was it a success? If yes, why? If not, why not?


Explain your answer.
How do you feel about presenting in a foreign
language?
Think of an excellent (or terrible) presentation that
you have attended. What made it good (or bad)?

STATING YOUR PURPOSE


It is essential to state the purpose of your presentation

near the beginning. To do this clearly and effectively,


you need a few simple presentation verbs: take a look
at, report on, give an overview of, etc.
When you give a presentation in English, clarity is very
important, particularly if there are non-native
speakers in your audience. It often helps if you state
your purpose at each stage of your talk as well as at the
beginning.

STRUCTURING A PRESENTATION
Most formal and many informal presentations have

three main parts and follow this simple formula:


Introduction: tell the audience what you are going to
say!
2. Main Part: Say it!
3. Conclusion: Tell them what you have said!

ORGANIZATION
The final part of the introduction deals with the
organization of the talk: how long it will last, whether
there will be handouts or how questions will be handled.
Timing
- My presentation will last about 20 minutes
- It should take about 30 minutes to cover these issues
Questions
- There will be time for questions after my presentation
- If you have any questions, feel free to interrupt me at
any time.

EFFECTIVE OPENINGS

minutes of a presentation are the most important.
They talk about hooks simple techniques for getting
the immediate attention of the audience. A good start
makes you feel more confident.
