the last time I made a presentation was on 12.12.2019. The main topic was social media. The structure of the presentation was negative and positive effects of social media, some statistics of social media in the UK and the last point was the impact of social media on English language. Actually, because it was the first time that I have made the presentation in my life, it was so hard to follow my cue boards, so sometimes I had to pause for 4 seconds looking for some quotes, especially in the section of statistics. The duration of the presentation was half an hour. That was really for me a challenging task; however, it went well.

Hello everybody!! My last presentation was at the university in Panama, I did my final exam to approve the whole course and my friends and me were really fine, we approve all the tesis presentation and we got the titule.

The last time I have to do a presentation was 2 months ago. I had to explain about externalities or an impact of actions to the bystanders in the principle of economics class. I pretty messed up when explaining about the curves. It just I am not yet getting used to talking in front of people even if it is just my friends. But I'm still trying to get used to it.

The last time I did a presentation was on December 2019. I was talking about my internship subject. I presented the different experiments I had to do and talked about the different materials such as bacteria strains, vectors...I'll use for for my experiments. It was an informal presentation but very important for me because I had a lot of good suggestions.

i remember i gave a presentation in one of the top universities last year in Iran, i mean Sharif University where the students were so intelligent,open minded and knowledgeable,and it was hard to be in such a situation because they expected speaker to be updated in what he is saying .the presentation was about negotiation and communication skills,and i did well.first i said:"every body stand up,and i will give you 30 seconds to communicate with people who are on your left or right side in a way that you think they are not an important people." after first 30 seconds finished i said:"i will give you another 30 seconds to communicate with them again but instead in this turn you should treat them like they are the most significant person in this you will behave with him or her?the hall after i said this,start to ignite .crowd was full of enthusiasm to speak with people as if they were their lost friends who they had not seen him for a long time.

Hi everyone, the last presentation was two months ago, in my English class we were finishing the level and I had to expose about the important to learn another language and the benefic to have a bilingual brain.

thank you in advance
can i say i am going to talk you as l would like to talk you in the transcript?

Hello mo hussein,

You neeed to say 'talk to':

I'm going to talk to you


In the transcript, the speaker uses the phrase 'talk you through', which has a different meaning. Talking someone through something means explaining a process or procedure to someone:

Installing the new operating system is not too difficult. I'll talk you through it.
