English Speaking Practice through Presentations

English Speaking Practice through Presentations by Josef Essberger.
If you’re anything like most teachers, you’re probably constantly looking for new ways to encourage your students to practise their oral English and speak spontaneously. This month, we’re going to consider the value of the ‘presentation’ in achieving this.
Asking students to give presentations has the following advantages:
* it gives the presenting student a good opportunity to practise unaided speaking
* it gives the other students good listening practice
* it increases the presenting student’s confidence when using English
* it can be good practice for the real situation for those students who may actually need to give presentations in English in their professional lives
* it is an excellent generator of spontaneous discussion
