English speaking countries

ORAL PRESENTATION – English speaking country or city
• To improve your knowledge of English-speaking countries and areas in the world
• To practice how to compile facts into your own personal, well-organized presentation
• To practice using your spoken English and become more confident talking in front of an audience
Choose a country or city where English is spoken. Prepare a presentation of about 3-5 minutes. Work individually. If you want, use power-point or pictures to illustrate. Do not use a prepared longer text, you are allowed key words only (stödord). We want to hear you talk. If you need help, please ask about words, pronunciation and so on before it is time to present. Prepare and practice so you feel confident. Have fun with it!

• Major tourist attractions
• history?
• food?
• School system?
• culture: music, literature, famous people, behavior, spare time activities?
