POST CONVERSATION BANTER
Michael: In this final lesson, we heard Linda give a speech. I hate public speaking.
Dehua: But you’re a podcast host!
Michael: Podcasts are fine because there isn’t an audience watching me.
Dehua: That’s true. Public speaking isn’t always easy.
Michael: You need to build a connection and rapport with your audience.
Dehua: Yes, pay attention to what you say and how you say it.
Michael: If you prepare well, you will feel less nervous. Draft and revise your speech.
Dehua: And practice it!
Michael: The more confident you are with your speech, the more confident you will be when you give it in public.
Dehua: I think that public speakers give a better impression when they are friendly and smile.
Michael: I agree. Smile, and move around a little. You don’t want to just stand still like a statue.
Dehua: You’ll look more relaxed!
Michael: Okay, now onto the vocab.

Michael: Okay, now onto the lesson focus.

Lesson focus

Michael: In this lesson, you'll learn about giving a presentation.
Michael: We have already spoken about presentations in this series, but in this lesson, we will concentrate on the content of your presentation.
Dehua: When presenting your company, you should say how old it is.
Michael: Or how long it’s been on the market. Let’s hear some examples.
Dehua: 我们的公司在市场已经超过二十五年。(Wǒmen de gōngsī zài shìchǎng yǐjīng chāoguò èrshíwǔ nián.)
Michael: “Our company has been present on the market for 25 years.”

Dehua: XYZ 是一家传统公司。(XYZ shì yījiā chuántǒng gōngsī.)
