Speaking with confidence
One of the keys to success, perhaps THE key to success in presenting, is speaking with confidence and energy. In this unit we will look at confidence and how to improve your speaking confidence.

Storytelling
Have you ever found yourself listening enthusiastically to an engaging lecturer relate facts, figures, and data to personal experiences? If yes, that is the effect of good storytelling. In this section we look at The Magic of Storytelling. Have you ever noticed that, sometimes, you would much rather spend hours reading an interesting novel than a blandly educative book? If yes, that is the effect stories have on people. In addition, did you find yourself, even if just a little, more interested in this introduction because it painted a picture for you? If yes, that is the effect of good storytelling as well. Storytelling is indeed magical. It has a way of connecting dots in the human brain, assisting with assimilation, and influencing behaviors, among other things.

Language skills
In this section we look at the specific language that can be used in an effective presentation.

Grammar
In this section we will be reviewing some basic grammar points.

Vocabulary building
Learners often have difficulty learning vocabulary, especially when they attempt to learn vocabulary and recall it to use it when they need it. This is often due to using traditional strategies of writing down lists of words, which they invariably forget when they need to use it in a conversation.
