When was the last time you had to give a presentation? What was it about? How did it go?

It was in last year and our sales team needed to give the weekly sales progress report and business development info to our country manager. Each team member needed to talk about their roles and responbilities for the last week assignments. For example, I was in charge to check the whole team's overall activities and tasks completion, as a manager duties. Other team members needed to report about their customers phone calling, incoming and outgoing phone calls to handle the potential sales or general inquiries. Other member needed to report about the customer complains or requests and payment information for our shipments.

Anyway, our weekly sales meeting normally last about 45mins to 1 hour. Afterward, we had the Questions and Answers time with our Country Manager to work on new assingments for the next week.

Thank you this Listiening lession. It is very helpful strengthening my knowledge

Hello,
In task 1
6. He finished the presentation with enough time to take some questions.
I think the answer should be false; because there isn't enough time at all and he is a little suspicious about they will run out of time, so that, the presenter said:
"OK. So, any questions? Feel free to also email me for further information in case we run out of time."
Am I correct?
Thanks in advance.
I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello corflz

You're right in thinking that the speaker suspects there may not be enough time for him to answer all questions. This is why he makes the offer for people to email him. But since the audio ends there, the only thing we know for sure is that there is some time for questions. Since the speaker didn't say there was very little time, I think it's fair to assume that there is time enough for a few questions. For this reason, 'True' is the best answer here.

All the best

I got it clearly. Thank you very much.

I had to give presentations when I learned at my university. My teachers divided us into 4 - 5 people groups and each group had to prepare a presentation for each chapter in lecture books. When the chapter was taught on our class, the group who had done the presentation would present in front of the class. The teachers asked and made clearer if we presented something wrong or vague, or they explained an example to broad the presentation.
Basically, I did presentations like essays with an introduction, a body and a conclusion, stretching by questions for listeners. What I did to an essay, I did the same with presentations. With help from a computer, I presented content by slides with effects to make it easy to understand and appeal to listeners. After the conclusion or at any point in my presentations the listeners could ask for more information if they needed.

Hi, British Council support. I wonder what happened with the other videos,My last presentation was a few months ago. I had to talk in front of my classmates about a place where I had already been and recommend it. At first, I didn't want to do because I'm very shy and this kind of situation makes me feel very nervous but finally I did it and I felt really proud of myself.

Hello barno.egamberdieva

Could you please tell us which videos you can't find?

By the way, several of your comments were deleted because they were exact copies of other people's comments. We are happy to hear from you but please know that copying other people's work is not allowed.

My last presentation was a few months ago. I had to talk in front of my classmates about a place where I had already been and recommend it. At first, I didn't want to do because I'm very shy and this kind of situation makes me feel very nervous but finally I did it and I felt really proud of myself.

My last presentation was about 10 to 15 years ago, I think. I can‘t remember exactly which year it was in. It was a campetition for a post. I was very nervous and the result was not good. But I didn't care about it very much. Because to do is my only object.
