English Skill: Ending a Presentation

Keeping with the theme of presentations, imagine you have just given an amazing presentation, your use of English (so far) has been great, but now it’s time to bring the presentation to a close. This part of a presentation can often be difficult as you don’t want your audience to feel cut short or unsure as to if you have actually concluded your presentation or not. Your audience will often remember the last things you say in your presentation, so making sure that you don’t just kind of fizzle out at the end is important.

English Skill: Describing Visuals During a Presentation 

 Do you ever have to give presentations in English as part of your job or in front of friends and family? As part of my teaching career I have given many presentations in English and I know how nerve-racking it can sometimes be – and English is my native tongue!

Visual aids that you often encounter in (Powerpoint) presentations, such as pie charts, graphs, bar graphs, bullet points, boxes, etc. can often be challenging for non-native English speakers to refer to and you may be tempted to just talk about them without properly referencing them or using the correct language, or worse still – just ignore them! In order for your audience to easily follow your presentation and to allow you yourself to come across more professionally, here are some common English phrases that can be used to help describe various visual aids during a presentation.
