I love them, it's great talking to people. And whenever i get to explain something i take the oppurtunity.

You must be joking! I adre oral presentations! The bunch of stress that it brings to me and the adrenaline I get from it after presentation is finished. It is great! I used to hate oral presentations, but now I realize that they have done more good to me than bad!

Oral presentation, the name actually runs a chill down my spine. But sometimes you need to take the initiative to give oral presentations, for two reasons. Firstly, to get over the fear you have about oral presentations and secondly you might realize that you are better than most of them. In order to do so, you need to get thorough with the topic you are speaking about, spend a few hours reading about the topic, prepare a list of questions that you might encounter. Just place yourself in the audiences' shoes and think what questions you might ask the presenter. Also practice a couple of times standing in front of the mirror and if u have more time ask a few people( family members or close friends) to listen to your presentation, take the feedback from them and improvise on it. After two or three presentations I'm sure you will be confident enough give any presentation without any fear of hesitation. Well, I'm myself into doing this and am able to give decent presentations. I make use of transparencies or I prepare a slide show using Microsoft Powerpoint.

i like to do that. more often or not i am the one who rise the hand to do it in my class. everyone is scared to do it . but i am not. i may not have the best language or explanation talent but i am brave enough to do it. let me tell you how to do it. it is very easy. first think or take everyone in the audience as dump and i am saying to you this works. the audience are the best fool that you have met. then start talking to them and try to descriptive as to a 'fool';
