Oral English 1: Lesson 12
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:

Presentation that I thought the most good thing about the bullying. Because our group also chose the same theme. Us it was interesting because I thought a different solution with. And even when the announcement I was talking smoothly. I think the point also was suppressed firmly. It was still good to and speak as one faces forward more. Firm we were able to correspond also to the question. The poster was good it have summarized illustrations are many points in the statement. The speed of the story and I thought just well easier to hear. I think the presentation of the bullying and the best from the above.

I thought the best presentation was a group that has been taking about mobile phone. Becase they explained by using very easy words, so I could understand thoughtI I am not good at listening. Also, the poster was made along the unity of the story. Therefore, when I ask questions, I was able to organize to put stories of any example. In addition, I found a good point in the presentation. It was the form of participatory.Its form is that they asked audience's opinion. That is the chanse to consider about more the theme. In fact, I could know many opinion different from my thinking. I want to do my best next week like this presentation.

I think our presentation was not so good. Of course, there were good points though. When I prepared my presentation, I have tried to use vocabularies which are familiar to everyone so that they understand easily. After we have done our turn, we got many questions about my part. I think that audiences have interested in my part and understand well so I was happy about it. The reflection point is that our group was not good at managing time. We didn't communicate well before we start so we have left no much time for getting questions. Also the details for the main idea might be slightly difficult. That is why, I am reflecting many things as a group leader.

I think our presentation was fairly good. This is because the theme was very well and members also good. But we could not be better time allocation. In addition, I did not speak well and it might not transmitted well to the audience. But I began to take an increasingly gestures and eye contact while overlaying the number of times. And our good was the point of the presentation is that it was able to think about the problem along with the audience. By also the audience to get an opinion, it was able to be more developed to solve the problem. To convey to the audience in English was difficult, but it was fun to be able to think together. Next time I want to hear a firm presentation as the audience.

I thought the best presentation was a group that has been taking about smoking.Because I was able to know the fear of the cigarette.A cigarette knew the bad thing to a body.However, I did not think that it adversely affected the lungs so much.I thought that the cigarette did not want to suck it in in the future.The announcement was very plain.It is the announcement of our group this week.I want to do my best as hard as possible.

Is your parent working? When I'm working, would you like working hours? Is your parent smoking? I did such question. The best presentation is presentation about a death from overwork for me. Two are well-founded. That one were the plain contents. Two are that a gesture was often used. But every presentation was wonderful.

I felt difficulty of the presentation once more at this session. A group announcement was for the first time, so I had trouble variously. However, I was able to make a friend thanks to presentation. I was able to have an experience of controlling a person by working as a leader. The effort to talk about to see the eyes of the person was possible. I was going to talk using a gesture clearly. I think that the presentation became mind ability surely though it was difficult. If there is an opportunity, I want to wrestle with every effort again.

I think our presentation was not bad, but not good. The reason is that my group members studied very particularly about our topic. They gathered specific data, and explained to audiences politely. I felt that they didn't read. However, I lacked the presentation preparation. Because of contacting mistake. Also, I was upset, and forget to say "are you following me?" I have to be discreetly next time.

7/5/2015 07:38:03 pm
I thought that the group about mobile phones did the best presentation. Their presentation is very easy to understand.
7/5/2015 07:41:04 pm
I think that our presentation was good. We were able to make a poster premeditatedly. In addition, we cooperated and were able to give presentation. I kept it in mind that I raised a voice and read English smoothly. The question from audiences person was able to answer exactly, too. A bad point is that there were few some explanation about the topic. Audiences might have slightly difficult understanding. When I give presentation on the next time, I want to improve this bad point.
