Tıps for Oral Presentatıons

For A level students, the first oral presentation task is due on  Monday. For other levels, it may be at a later date. Still, it is good to have a look at the tips below.

* Read the task requirements carefully. 

What is it about? What questions do you need to answer? What details can you give about the questions? What language are you supposed to use? Are there any particular grammar structures and vocabulary you need to use?

* Familiarize yourself with the presentation criteria?

What are the components on the criteria? What do you need to do to have higher marks on each component? Explanations, examples for Content? Does hesitation matter? Any requirements for delivery? Read through the criteria and prepare you presentation accordingly.

* Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

Practice your presentation in front of a mirror, for example. Record your voice and listen to it to reflect on it. Have a friend listen to you and give feedback. Remember, practice makes it perfect?

* Check the pronunciation of words!

Use online dictionaries, for example http://dictionary.cambridge.org/

Make a habit of checking the pronunciation of words you learn.

* Watch the videos below. 

Try some of the suggestions in your presentation and make a difference!

* Do not feel nervous! 

This is a task to help us know you better. And you know your friends better. That’s it!

Good luck 🙂



Tell, Show or Involve?

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I’ll remember; involve me and I’ll learn!”

(An Ancient Chinese Proverb) or (Benjamin Franklin) Does it really matter?

Now, think about the following questions:

  • Are you a student sitting in the classroom and listening to the teacher only?
  • Do your discussions (e.g. pair/group works) end in less than a minute?
  • Do you bring your course materials to the classroom?
  • Do you take notes or take the picture of the board?
  • Do you revise what you have done in the classroom or do you procrastinate and leave it before the exam week?
  • Do you know that there are some extracurricular activities to show you how to do things?
  • Do you want to participate in activities that will help you master English (outside the classroom)?
  • Do you always complain about things or hold a positive attitude towards language learning?
  • Do you take the responsibility of your learning?
  • Are you afraid of making mistakes or do you see them as proofs that you are learning?

Think about your answers to these questions… before it is too late! 

Go check the “Duyuru Panosu” on the ground floor!

Check the LED screens on the main hall!

Check the library!

Check “Etkinlik Odası”!

Check the class schedule and make use of “Self Study” and “Office hours”! 

And ask for help!

Good luck!
