Presentation Skills: 25 Useful Expressions you can use to make your Presentations in English flow

Andrea’s main objective during these two weeks has been to work on her presentation skills as her job now requires her to give more and more presentations in English. So we’ve spent the last two weeks working on such things as signposting language (for example, “to move on”; “to recap”; “to summarise”; “to turn to” and so on); presentation structure; using visuals and using the voice to make an impact (for example, pauses, sentence stress and intonation). One of the other things we’ve also worked on is creating a bank of common expressions that Andrea can learn in advance and use in any of her presentations.
