today I attended an english training held by PSDM department. I was lucky to get a great native tutor. David Freeman. in the first meeting, we were taught to do presentations in English. there are some things I noted about the good presentation in english. In the academic world, lectures and business we are often required to be able to do presentations in English. It is because English is the international language. There are some tips before the presentation in the inggirs. First is, get your self prepared the most important thing before doing presentation is get myself prepared. First is the presentation material. Second is a lot of practicing. Third is best performance and appearance in presentation. That’s all that I’ve recorded so far. See u tomorrow.
After I joined previous english training yesterday, iam looking now for somekind of advancement in doing presentation. Iam searching around the library about english learning literatures and these are my notes. At presentation, what should I do? Off course just do the best. I will do whatever is best I can. But before that, I have to create a presentation structure, so before the presentation we have to make a nice list of rundwon. There are at least 5 important things in the English presentation I noted, namely (1) greetings, (2) introducing the presenters, (3) state the focus of the topic, (4) share the main content of presentation, question and answer and (6) make a summary; then the terakring is closing. In closing session it is important to say thank you and give a good impression and make sure that my presentation is a success. And I will remember to keep smiling.
I am still thinking about preparing the presentation in English because the important factor in the presentation is the preparation, especially the presentation materials. Before the presentation I had to make sure the material was well prepared. If delivering business material, then I have to master business topic then make powerpoint. But before making powerpoint, I have to think about two important things: the mindmap and the essay. Mindmap aims to facilitate me in remembering the presentation material, while the essay serves to sharpen the material because in the essay of course the material is very complete only high convert again into powerpoint. Mindmap and essays should also be arranged in English for easy creation and more mastering the associated vocabulary. In the meantime it was the first one I noted.
Today I follow the academic writing training program that is also taught by Mr. David from Georgia, United States. Academic writing training program is important because I am required to be able to arrange scientific articles in English. The only way I have good writing skills is by learning and practicing a lot. Learning to write english not only involves the ability to write physically but understanding all the existing English material. One thing that becomes my concern is that english in writing is totally different with english in conversation. So, looks like I need a lot of learning and practicing. Hopefully, Mr. Freeman can help me to review my articles.
Today is friday. This is a very happy day because it’s weekend. I have a lot of plan to do it to finish my research article that I want to deliver it to well-known reputation journal. My field of research is marketing and finance and I like to combine it into one specific-academic field called marketing metrics where not many researchers do observations in that field. Since this field is a new field then I need a lot of hard work. It takes a lot of time to complete the academic journals. May God ease my effort to do it. Amen.
