Giving a presentation in any language can be a very intimidating experience. If you need to do it in a foreign language it is even worse!
Many surveys (encuestas) show that people rank giving a presentation as being as enjoyable as death!
So, how should you start your presentations in English? Well, my answer would be that you should start them as dynamically as possible. Audience engagement is a great way to help people from nodding off (quedarse dormido). So, you could start with a question:
- How many of you....?
- Have you ever....?
- Did you see...?
- What do you think...?
Question forms in English are on the most difficult structures for Spanish speakers so make sure you double check that your question is correctly formed and engaging!
Hope that helps!
