How to make a presentation(Monologue)

HERE you have some language and phrases you can use to make an oral presentation in English.
Also you can follow this outline:
1. INTRODUCTION
-    Introduce your topic briefly. You can be as formal as you like.
I am going to talk about….
In this speech I would like to tell you about….(more formal)
- Alternatively, you could grab your audience’s attention by starting with a question or a challenging statement.
So much do you know about….?
Have you ever asked yourself why….?
What I’m going to tell you about today will change the way you think about…..
2. DEVELOPMENT
-  Answer all the questions provided in the worksheet, or if not, develop your own ideas by answering the 6W (what, when, where, why, how, and who). Decide the order of your ideas, let’s say 3 or 4.  Introduce them by using this language:
The first/key thing to say about _______is ….
The main point to make about _______ is….
What you really need to know about _______ is…
Now let’s look at ….
Let’s turn/move on to….
Another interesting thing/aspect/point to consider about _______ is….

- You may need to use several types of linking words in this part of your speech such as: adding points on the same topic, stating reasons for and against (advantages and disadvantages), showing cause/consequence, showing contrast, showing purpose, etc…
- Of course think about possible grammar structures and the specific vocabularyyou may need to use.
3. CONCLUSION
Conclude your presentation by briefly summarizing what you have said.
In conclusion, to sump up, last but not least …..
- If possible provide or give your personal opinion of the topic (saying if you agree or not) and justify your answer.
