Presentaties geven in het Engels.

Giving a presentation to a group in your own language can     be a challenge, but it is a bigger challenge to give a presentation in a foreign language.

Always remember your audience are there to learn something from you. You are the expert in your field. Below you will find some sentences and tips to help you if you have a problem. Relax, you can do it.

 

De voorbereiding van jouw presentatie

  •  Planning

Prepare your presentation well. Remember to keep text to a minimum. Make use of visuals: use video clips, graphs, charts where possible but don’t overdo it.

  • Equipment

Make sure your laptop is ready and any equipment you need is in working order. Make sure your presentation is stored on your laptop. Arrive early to check if everything is in order. Have handouts ready to give your audience at the end.

 

De uitvoering

  • Performance

Be yourself. Speak freely.

Never read your slides word for word.

Speak with confidence: Clearly, slowly and calmly.

  • Maintain eye contact

Every so often look at your audience. Look friendly and watch your body language.

(Maybe a good idea to get someone to listen to your presentation before you give it to your audience.)

  • Pause often

Don’t fly through the information as your audience will need time to digest the information.

  • Use your voice

Try to speak with enthusiasm and not in a monotone tone as you will lose your audience.

  • Getting started.

Don’t spend too long introducing yourself and what you do, just get on with it.

Op deze Engelse site een mooie extra uitleg over vragen stellen in jouw presentatie.

 

Vragen die je kunt stellen in je presentatie

  • Rhetorical questions

It is easier to involve your audience in the presentation by asking questions. It also gives you a rest if you feel you are getting tired. The longer your presentation takes the more likely you are to make mistakes. By asking questions it involves the audience and gives you the chance to recover. Nobody will be any the wiser.

Where + go. Where do we go from here?

How soon + see. Tell me, how soon will we see results?

What + for. Ok, what are we waiting for?

What + looking . Sir, what sort of plan are we looking for?

Where + did. People, where did we go wrong?

How much + is. Tell me, how much is this going to cost?

 

 Vragen beantwoorden en commentaar geven

  • Dealing with questions

You may want to take questions during your presentation or at the end .

If someone asks you a question it is a good idea to think about it before you answer the question. If you don’t know the answer, say so. Never pretend you know the answer as you will only look stupid. Below are some useful sentences.

In de afgelopen maanden heeft een aantal van mijn collegae bij A&B Groep de cursus Zakelijk Engels gevolgd bij SR training en ik ben blij verrast met de behaalde resultaten.

SR training heeft het team Geboortezorgadvies van CZ op een praktische en inspirerende manier kennis laten maken met Zakelijk Engels.

Iedere les was voor mij boeiend en leerzaam. De opdrachtvormen waren wisselend, afgestemd op mijn werk. Dit maakte de lessen dynamischer.

SR training is een toegankelijk trainingsbureau dat hoogwaardige taaltrainingen aanbiedt. Het is een fijne partner in de samenwerking en is enorm flexibel. Flexibel in de inhoud van trainingen, de planning en de omgang.

Wat me vooral aansprak was, dat het zo toepasbaar was. We behandelden onze eigen e-mails en rapporten. Geen droge lesstof of invuloefeningen.

Wat een verschil met school, dat leren zo leuk kan zijn. Echt praktisch en afgestemd op onze groep.
Hartstikke bruikbaar in ons werk.

Het heeft me eigenlijk nog verder gebracht dan waar ik dacht uit te komen. Ik spreek met veel meer zelfvertrouwen en merk dat het communiceren stukken beter gaat. Ook is er aandacht besteed aan vaktechnische vocabulaire wat me erg heeft geholpen.
