Instead of our discussions, we had presentations in today's lesson! We got to see four presentations on different social issues in Japan.
We finished our first group of presentations today. I was really impressed with the content of your presentations. You gave a lot of interesting information about your social problem, and offered some interesting solutions.
Overall, everyone made a good effort to make eye contact with the audience, use gestures and presentation language correctly. I was happy to see that many presenters used expressions that they had learned from our discussions: "Let's move onto..." and "Are you following me?"
For next week's presenters, it's really important that you speak loud enough. When you speak loud enough, it shows that you are confident about your topic.
Most importantly, do not read your presentations. There were too many presenters who were reading their notes!
We are continuing with our presentations in next week's lesson. Please remember these points:
