It is that simple,if v alone are giving the speech the entire class vl only target one thing dat is u.So they fear that wat if some one laugh,then entire class follows them.So to do better on a podium u have to feel "people who listening to him are not better than u". it might help a bit.

Based from experience and from other speakers as well, the first thing that usually makes us nervous or hesitant to go up and speak, is the fear of committing a mistake. It's the notion that the speaker may say something incorrectly and something inapplicable accidentally. There is also belief in what we're going to say. Sometimes, we have no choice but to say something to a group of people such as rolling out new policies and processes that you don't approve of. It's hard to disseminate that kind of information. There is also the physical appearance. To some people, they consider how they present themselves physically to the public. The dress and the stance are some of them. Speaking in public is not that easy, it takes a lot of confidence. It also could really help if you try to speak every opportunity you can so you'll get used to being in front of many people. It also helps to understand what you're going to say and not just remember/memorize them. It can't be helped sometimes but you have control over it and believe that you can deliver it well.

Always. I'm not a crowd person. Sometimes I can't even get my thoughts straight to talk to myself, lol, let alone dozens of faces. In the past I nearly had panic attacks when I had to read in front of the class. I hated that feeling of being inadequate even though I was always reassured about my 'knowledge laced voice'.
