Oral Presentations

I'm a new ESL Teacher who is having trouble thinking of a good oral presentation topic for my first conversational class. Any thoughts would be appreciated.

There are many interesting topics for oral presentations. The topics depend on your students’ level and interest. To begin with, may be it would be a good idea to ask your students what they would like to talk about. In this way, their motivation and commitment to the preparation and participation to the oral presentation will be increased. From the suggestions they would give you, you could choose one and use it for an oral presentation topic. Then, any common discussion topics linked to sports, hobbies, interesting facts, odd jobs, trips, dreams, social/political issues, etc. can work when well presented to the students.
I hope that my thoughts will help you somehow.
Good luck!

I am just beginning my ESL adventure but I remember an oral com. class I took in college; we had to speak about the most sensory-rich experience in our memories. Or what about a fake Oscar or major award acceptance speach. Be creative!

I dream of teaching in Italy and have been researching possibilities, so I will be following this thread for lots of good ideas!
