Presentation Language and Structure - Business English Worksheets and Games

Presentations Pelmanism

Business English Presentation Language Game - Vocabulary: Matching, Pelmanism - Group Work - Intermediate (B1) - 20 minutes

In this free business presentations language game, students match presentation expressions to parts of a presentation. In pairs, students take turns turning over one presentation card and one expression card. If the presentation part matches the expression (e.g. 'Opening a Presentation' and 'Thank you for coming.'), the student reads the two cards aloud, keeps them and has another turn. If the two cards don't match, the student turns them back over, keeping them in the same place. There are 20 presentation expressions in total - two expressions for each part of a presentation. The student with the most pairs of cards at the end of the game wins. Afterwards, check the correct answers with the class and elicit other possible expressions for each part of a presentation.

Business English Presentations Worksheet - Reading, Vocabulary and Writing Exercises: Categorising, Writing a Presentation - Speaking Activity: Delivering a Presentation - Upper-intermediate (B2) - 45 minutes

This useful signposting language worksheet helps students practice different types of signposting language for a business presentation.

Students then match eight types of signposting language to descriptions of their functions. Next, students write the signposting language in bold from the presentation in a table next to its corresponding type. After that, students work with a partner and brainstorm ideas for a presentation that can incorporate the signposting language. Students then move on to write a short presentation that uses the language. Finally, students present or read their presentations in small groups or to the class.
