engVid quiz

Test your understanding of this English lesson

Test your understanding of the English lesson by answering these questions. You will get the answers and your score at the end of the quiz.
When English is not your native language, it is best:

Transition words such as for example, nevertheless, and as a result will indicate that I am not an English speaker, so I should avoid using them in a presentation.

It is more effective to use active verbs (such as "Jackson Realty sold the house.") rather than passive verbs (such as "The house was sold by Jackson Realty.") in a presentation.

If I have an accent and speak slowly, the audience will get bored and stop listening.

My body language is the most important thing, so I don't need to worry if there are spelling or grammar mistakes on my written material or slides.

It is a good idea to use jargon in presentations to a general audience. It will make me sound like an expert.

Depending on the country, the number "200,000" can be read as:

What is jargon?

      You use I would when you want to do something that you like, you say “I would like to…”
      or in other kind of expressions like “I would like to eat a…”

    Yeah, it is an excellent website to prepare professional presentations.

    Dear Rebecca,

    Thanks for these useful tips for giving a presentation, they have helped me a lot recently.

    As I see it, crutch words or fillers are always necessary when giving a presentation. I have noticed that I use them a lot; I prefer them to remind silent.

    Thanks again for this wonderful lesson Rebecca.

Thanks for the awesome tips Rebecca. I need ur help on something. Sometimes it is difficult to understand the other person’s accent, how to handle that situation. Do I need to do some course to improve or learn accent?
Also, it is not possible to learn all the dictionary. We try to speak simple english that everyone can understand, however, we can’t really advice this to others at work, same with rate of speech. How to handle that situation? Please help.
