I love to teach presentation skills to my ESL students because it’s a skill that they can hold on to and take with them for the rest of their lives; it can also be applied to their first language for things like job interviews, work environments or even other classes in university.
But how to teach public speaking in an effective way? It can be kind of daunting at first because many teachers are not so confident in their own skills. The best advice I can give you is to get this book: Speaking of Speech: Basic Presentation Skills for Beginners. It was written by some teachers in Japan and it’s extremely easy to teach from.
Here are some other posts from My Life! Teaching in a Korean University that you will find useful:
