English for Academic Purposes
There are people who get nervous when speaking to the public. These sort of cases are even common among normal conversations such as interviews or oral presentation. Many people think that there is no way to fix this problem, I think differently. There are many sources of help such as internet, academic speech classes, practicing and programs to help you.
One way is to introduce yourself to a academic speech class. It may be helpful to clearly and collectively speak without being nervous and stuttering or looking silly. It may also help you understand what you are reading and writing about. Most of all it will improve your overall skills in these areas. Another method is the internet. It can be very useful in these cases. I personally suggest a website which has personally helped me focusing in my speaking and writing skills: englishstudydirect.com/osac/hmtl. This internet site has been very helpful and it will show you many options to improve your presentation in front of the public.
EAP is an excellent option where you are able to see great tips to improve your skills. Another option which, I have practiced myself would be to practice in front of somebody who you feel comfortable with and have them correct your errors along with your speech. Speak loudly and clearly so people assume that you know exactly what you are speaking about. Looking confident has a lot to do with your presentation as well. It lets people know that you have no problem speaking.
So if you are interested about one of these programs or the internet site and would like to be a better speaker, reader and writer I suggest you either go directly to the website listed above or to your nearest academic consultant to practice.
