To be sure your oral report goes smoothly, practice ahead of time. If you practice in front of a mirror, you can check your posture and presentation. If you practice in front of friends or family, you can get a sense of how your audience will react.

Use the following guidelines when you make an oral report.
  • Your voice carries best when you stand tall - but not stiff. Feel free to shift your stance to stay comfortable.
  • Make eye contact with your listeners. As you speak, move your eyes from one person's face to the next.
  • Speak at a normal pace - or even a little slowly. Don't let nervousness make you rush.
  • Pause for a few seconds after each of your more important points. This lets listeners reflect on what you have said.
