We're heading into the home stretch (the "home stretch" is the area between third base and home plate in baseball". This idiom means that you are almost finished something. In this case, we are almost finished out course.
We finished our first group of presentations today. I was really impressed with your presentation skills, especially since you didn't do presentations in Oral English 1.
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.
We start our presentations in next week's lesson. Please remember these points:
