Make some notes

www.myenglishonline.ca


Here are a few possibilities for organizing your ideas:

logical; chronological order;

from general to specific;

from known to unknown;

from accepted to controversial;

cause/effect;

problem/solution.

  • 1. Sequence your ideas

Make some notes

www.myenglishonline.ca


2. Use Signposting or signal where you are.

  • Body

Imagine you are driving along a road that you do not know – signs will guide you to find your way.

This is the same for people listening to a presentation: they need signals to guide them so that it is easy to follow the presentation.

In a presentation these signals or signs are expressions that help the audience. For example: first announce what you are going to say (“ I will give an example:...”)

and then say what you want to say.

In a written test this is not necessary but for presentations it is very important.

Important Don’ts: is easy to practice your presentation:

Don't read your presentation. You can use short notes, but reading a presentation is unnatural; also, it makes it very difficult for your audience to follow.

Don't try to cover too much material. Remember you only have 5-10 minutes.
