My students haven't had experience giving presentations in front of other students. Therefore, I have to explain them how to prepare their presentation, each student’s role, and how to present in class.
They don't even know how to find information they should bring to class. So I have to show how they can search in English using English searching engines, newspapers or magazine. Second, even though they bring a lot of ideas, they have difficulties to express their ideas in English. Therefore, I have to correct them every time they make a mistake and I have to give correct words or expressions in my speaking class.
