PRESENTATION TOPIC LIST

Here you have a long list of probable topics for your presentation. There are topics more difficult than others to prepare, so be careful with your election. Your teacher will evaluate pronunciation, grammar and vocabulary. Try to be clear and avoid complex sentences if you are not very good at English. You can ask for help or look up in a encyclopaedia but remember that you may be required to explain structure, vocabulary, etc. For that reason be careful when you copy something.

Aquí tienes una larga lista de temas posibles para tus presentaciones. Unos temas son más difíciles que otros de preparar, así que ten cuidado con tu elección. Tu profesor evaluará pronunciación, gramática y vocabulario. Intenta ser claro y evitar oraciones compuestas si no eres muy bueno en inglés. Puedes pedir ayuda o consultar una enciclopedia, pero recuerda que se te puede pedir que expliques cualquier estructura, vocabulario, etc. Por eso, ten cuidado cuando copies algo.
