New Year's resolution
I noticed in your debates last week and this week that there are two types of pairs: those students who are very well prepared and those who didn't prepare enough for their debates.
When you have presentations in Oral English 2 next year, it's important to speak loudly. This shows that you are confident in your opinion. Also, you need to make eye contact with both the audience and your group. You have to practice both the content of your presentation, and how you will present (e.g. body language and voice inflection). If you don't practice your content enough before the lesson, it will be difficult to focus on your body language because you need to use your notes too often.
