At some point most people will have to give a presentation. For many of our learners this is a different type of skill they have to learn and for their teachers this can be difficult because we teach rehearsed language as well as presentation skills. Many of us may also have problems with presentation. However, teaching our learners how to present helps them with their English related to their working environment as well as provides them with a confidence and motivation to continue their English. Great presentation skills lead to promotions and accolades from colleagues! Even good for teens to learn.
Throughout my career, I needed help! How many of you need help? How many of you in your first year of teaching know you will want help quickly and from experienced educators in the field? How many of you would like this quickly while you face problems such as classroom management, communicating with parents effectively, or integrating new technology you were never trained in effectively? Throughout your career you will face many problems and like the Beatles say it is great to get a little help from our friends!
