The University of Tsukuba Academic English Presentation II Trimester 3 Wk 4
Last time we learned about formal and informal introductions, and how to make introductions better. We talked about stating your purpose too.
Today we are going to talk about effective openings. An effective opening grabs the audience's attention. It creates interest in your presentation. One way to create interest is to surprise your audience.
Look at the image on the left. Who are the people in the image? What do you think they have in common? I think the answers to these questions will surprise you....
Your second presentation will be a repeat of your first presentation. This time you must rewrite your introduction so that it is informal, has an effective opening, and it states the purpose of your presentation.
