  演讲开场白英文版1. Visual Aids

  Visual aids such as images, objects, sculptures and models are a fantastic but under-exploited tool for making great openings  in presentations in English. A visual aid immediately helps grab the audience s attention and piques their curiosity. And once the audiences tars thinking “what is it?”, “how does it relate to the presentation?” and “why have they shown me this?”, the presenter starts winning their battle to achieve their presentation objective (to inform, persuade, entertain etc.).

  Visual aids also act as a great support for non-native speakers who are nervous speaking in front of people, as it removes them from the spotlight. Also it helps focus their attention on the presentation opening instead of worrying about the audience s reaction. Watch this great example, a 5 minute TED Talk by a Dutch Engineer, and how he uses a visual object to make a boring presentation really come alive. Count how long it is before he actually starts speaking.

  演讲开场白英文版2. Petcha Kutcha 20x20

  Petcha Kutcha events are organized around the World. They were started by a group of young designers in Tokyo in 2003 and have become world famous. Their goal is to improve “The Art of Concise Presentations”.

  Each presenter is allowed to show 20 images (one per slide), with each slide lasting up to 20 seconds, hence the 20x20. So how does this relate to teaching presentations in English? In an internet obsessed world that has become more visual, faster paced, and now suffers from information overload, the ability to quickly communicate your key messages is vital. Other advantages include: being a useful technique for teaching time-poor professionals and managers; helping long-winded students become more concise; and finally there is a cross-cultural aspect.

  演讲开场白英文版3. Storytelling

  Nancy Duarte wrote an excellent book called Resonate (Wiley, 2010), which helps any person learn how to craft visual stories and present them using the techniques normally reserved for cinema and literature.

  With Resonate, presenters learn how to: connect with the audience empathetically; craft ideas that get repeated; use story structures inherent in great communication; create captivating content; inspire and persuade audiences. It s a book full of quick and easy-to- use communication techniques for creating great presentation openings.

  3. 讲故事

  Nancy Duarte写过一本很棒的书叫《Resonate》(Wiley, 2010),这本书教给所有人如何视觉化地、生动地把故事讲出来,和平时只在电影和文学作品中才会使用的专业技巧。



  演讲开场白英文版4. Power of your Voice

  Following on from point 3, great story-tellers also know how to use the power of their voice to captivate, entertain and influence their audience. There s a reason why children (and some adults) will sit quietly, attentively and listen for a long time to a good story-teller. What is it they do? They vary their tone, pitch, volume, speed, intonation, emphasis and pauses to create moments of suspense, excitement, danger and happiness.

  There are hundreds of good examples on YT you can analyse with your students to show them the effect of the power of their voice when giving a presentation. Try comparing a presenter with a monotonous tone and one who knows how to use the power of their voice to see how different they are.

  演讲开场白英文版5. Using Quotes

  This can feel like a very American presentation style, but its appeal is much more international than you’d think. They key is to select quotes from internationally known and famous authors, figures and people both from the past and present.

  Here is a good source for presentation quotes. Why do presenters use quotes? For two reasons, firstly it helps them quickly frame an argument or key message for the audience. Secondly, it gives their own presentation a little more credibility as people tend not to question these quotes as much as they would if they’re the presenter s own.

  5. 引用名人名言




  演讲开场白英文版6. Evaluating and Giving Feedback

  At the beginning of this post I mentioned “practice makes perfect” and also the TV program Dragon s Den. Why?

  Both highlight the importance of “Evaluating and Giving Feedback” to perfect a presentation. As teachers we can work with our students to develop criteria to evaluate their own and other presentations so they can learn through watching others as well as themselves. Technology (webcams, private YT channels, etc.)

  gives students the option of peer review of their presentations, either by themselves, or by teachers and classmates.

  6. 评估并给予反馈

  文章的一开始,我就有提到“熟能生巧”以及BBC电视节目《Dragon’s Den》,这是为什么呢?因为它们俩都突显了“评估并给予反馈”对一场演讲是否完美的重要性。
