Oral Training - Video on Overcoming Nervousness for Presentations

Dear students,

There are many suggestive clips on Youtube about how to overcome nervousness before giving a presentation, but this is one of the best I have seen because of its simple and straightforward approach.  The speaker gives reasons why we get nervous and practical tips on how to solve this problem.  In addition to being informative, it could also be considered a model presentation because of the masterful way the speaker uses her voice and body language to deliver a speech.  You will be inspired by just watching the way she speaks even if you don't understand all of the information she gives.  If you don't understand the first time, go back and review it again.  Take notes the second time.  The most important information appears on the screen to help you.  I wish you all the best on preparing to give an "exciting" presentation!
