INTRODUCTION

 

Rationale

We are living in a modern society where communication skill is indispensable. Among different communication skills is public speaking skill which probably is the most difficult one. Ability of giving a good presentation is extremely important for those who want to success. When you are still on the school-desk, you need presentation skill to discuss or argue some point of view with your classmate. When you are at work, in the future, you need this skill to report your work to your colleagues and manager, or introduce and sell some product to your customers. If you are manager, presentation skill is even much more necessary.       It helps you to success in negotiating with your partners or inspiriting your staffs.

Together with technology development, MS PowerPoint program has also been developed. Today, it has become so popular. MS PowerPoint is a very strong tool supporting for presentations. A PowerPoint presentation delivers a message much more effectively than a normal oral presentation because it is a combination of words, pictures and sound.

However, it is not everyone can give an effective PowerPoint presentation. A person who is able to make a good oral presentation can make a bad PowerPoint presentation due to his design mistakes.

As a student at Faculty of English, Hanoi Open University, I have given several PowerPoint presentations before classmates and I have also  been an audience for many times. I see that even when we are senior students, we still rarely make an effective PowerPoint presentation. Hence, in this study I would like to focus on finding difficulties which senior students often meet and common mistakes they often do.

Some strategies to give an effective PowerPoint presentation for the 4th year student of English Faculty, Hanoi Open University” is a very helpful and interesting topic so I decided to choose it for my Graduation Paper.
