I presented WWF as a member of group 4. I felt our presentation was done well and I did my best. I could make eye contact with the audience and do not to look at the screen and my paper too long. For this, I memorized what I wanted to say hard the day before. I think we also could obey the limit time and make the good slides. However, I was very nervous, so I spoke a little hurriedly. I usually tense when I present and my voice and hands are shaking. I was nervous when I presented on the spring semester, but this presentation was done in front of the audience, so I was more nervous. I think this presentation was a good experience because I learned a lot of the presentation skills!

I presented about Teach For Japan. What I did well is explaining the topic with perspicuous voice. Also, I tried using gestures. What I had trouble with was my stage-fright. I don't get nervous during presentations. However, I became tense because this was my first presentation in English in front of many people. I fogot what I want to say at one time. Above all, I think this presentation was a great experience for me.

I presented Ashinaga Scholarship society in last class. I introduced our topic and summarised what my co-presenters said. Before I presenting, I minded that I tried to present like group 1's presentation. But, I tend to be tense before presentation, so I forgot it. In addition, I could not speak English fluently because of the degree of my mental tension.

The most interesting presentation for me was the one about Ashinaga. I had heard the name Ashinaga many times,but I didn't know what they are doing or how they are helping people. However, now I know about them better than before. Group5 taught us these things very clearly. There are two reasons why I liked their presentation. First, they used maps and graphs in their slides. I think they are effective to make the information clear. Second, I could see many gestures during the presentation. I was excited seeing their gestures and I could understand what they wanted to say even when I missed listening their words. Now I know what we should keep in our minds when we do presentations.

I did the presentation about "Teach for Japan" in the last class. It is hard work for me, but there are two good points in my presentation. First, I gave some concrete data and made my presentation persuasiveness. I made some data easy to understand by showing some data visually. Second, I could make eye contact with the listener. I tried to face forward and look the audience's reaction. But there are some bad points, and for example my speech's speed is fast. I spoke fast by nervous and left audience behind. I have some points which I should reflect, but I learned posture to tell something to people by this class. I want to make use of it and take communication in English.

I think all of the presentations were interesting, but if I choose one, I like group4's presentation about WWF the best. Honestly to say, I wasn't interested in the nature and environment, so I didn't know the environment of the earth such as endangered species. However, I understood it when I listened to their presentation. Their explanation was easy to understand because they used body language and changed the tone. I could notice the important point easily. Furthermore, they suggested what we can do simply for WWF. I realized what we can do was easy for the big problem such as the nature of the earth. Their presentation was so interesting for me who had not been interested in the nature.

I think that all groups did their best. I was impressed by the sincerity of their attitudes. But I think that group 4’s presentation is the best of all. I have three reasons for this. First, every member spoke clearly. Second, they could make eye contact very well. And last, the contents of the presentation were so coherent that I could understand easily. I thought that all members could understand WWF very well and present with confidence. I want to do several things they proposed in the presentation in order to protect the environment.

I presented about WWF last class. I achieved my best and I think classmates understanded about WWF. I tried to make eye contact. I could watch every classmates' eyes. However, I wish I had made my slides understandable. There were few imformation in my slide but I only spoke key point. If I make my presentation next, I will write imformation down in short sentences. I was very excited doing presentation and I could learn telling speech.

I think all groups were very good but I like the group6's presentation about Ashinaga the best. Their presentation was easy for me to understand. First, they used body language a lot. Thanks to that, I could understand more important things easily. Second, their slides were clear and it was easy to see. The maps or graphs were very effective. I was surprised at their great slides. Third, I thought they always cared about audience. They spoke in a clear voice and made eye contact without watching notes. Anyway, I could enjoy their presentation.

I did not present last lesson, and I like presentation about Teach For Japan. I have three reasons. First, one of the presentation member is a paticipant of Teach For Japan, so I was interested in it and searched about it actually. Second, They used a lot of body languages and eye contacts. I could not do them during my presentation. Third, I was impressed by the detail of their report. They gave us practical date simply. However, the others group are nice presenters. I think that I have learned a lot thanks to their presentations.
