July 7th Final Presentations

Dear students,
Today and July 14th, you will deliver your final five-minute presentation. It is unfair on others if you are not ready for today; therefore please all be ready. If you are not ready, you will be penalized.
The topic of your final presentation is anything you want - free.
You must speak for at least five minutes.
Your presentation is solo.
You should say something that the audience would like to hear; be new and interesting.
The order of your speeches will be random.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

June 30th lesson

Dear students,
Today is the last of four 10-point presentations before your 30-point final presentation in July. You should make sure that your slides are professional and error free, and if you haven`t been communicating with your eyes, please do so.
Good luck!

June 23rd lesson

Dear students,
Today you will prepare for presentation IV in pairs, that you will deliver on June 30th. If you have free time, you should also work on your final presentation, which is worth 30 points, and which you should present on either the 7th or 14th of July.
If you wish, let me check either your outline, or slides, or script, of presentation IV or your final presentation.
Kind regards,
Chris Elvin

The assessment criteria for the next two presentations will be different from the first two; You will be awarded five points for professionalism and five points for content.
Professionalism in one`s presentation includes being well organized, speaking English clearly; having meaningful, stylish and effective slides in English without spelling or grammar mistakes; having good audience communication including with one`s eyes; and showing good manners.
Content refers to your ideas. You should be well researched and your information should be new and interesting to most of your audience. You should also tell or show the audience where you got your material from, either orally or by showing them in a slide in your conclusion.
