    Dear Yen Yee,i used to have such a problem when i was defending my diploma project.it took me much longer than 10 minutes to present ,so i had to control myself somehow.and do you know how i overcame it?i simply chose a particular person among the audience,whose facial expression was more pleasant to me,it was calm but attentive at the same time.so i was speaking for only that person and forgot about others.after a while i felt much more self-confident and turn my eyes on person sitting next to him.in the middle of my speach i could glance at all group still trying not to lose the person who i had choen at the begining.
    dear yen yee hope i made sense an it helps you.good luck

    What people? surely not your fellow students? I am sure your tutor would not do it. Certainly not your friends.

    My advice would be to ignore them and persevere. Isolate the problems you have with pronunciation and work on each individually untill you get it right then move on to the next problem. Perhaps construct a sentence that includes the pronunciation that you find difficult and work on it.

    I know its easy for me to give you advice and i understand how much more difficult it must be if you are worrying about it while speaking, but the key is perseverance. Your goal must be to achieve the best you can. Practice, practice, practice

    the best thing that you can do is BEING RELAX. make a cup of coffee , lay on a sofa and present your lecture calmly. dont think about other's opinion.They ARE NOT important at all. just try to do your best. i'll wait for your post on wednesday, because i'm sure that you CAN be successful. believe on your self.


    Believe in yourself...
    in the power you have
    to control your own life
    day by day.
    Believe in the strength
    that you have deep inside
    and your faith will help
    show you the way.
    Believe in tomorrow
    and what it will bring,
    let a hopeful heart
    carry you through
    for things will work out
    if you trust and believe
    there's no limit
    to what you can do!

    1 You are doing that already by asking questions and searching for ways to help in your goal. keep doing that

    2. Apply your practical experiences to the relevant reference book and make it more meaningful. This will help you to understand the subject better.

    3. You think you are forgetful, but I am sure you are no more so than anyone else. Your problem may be that you take on too much at once and overload yourself to the extent that you dont give yourself a chance to absorb one piece of knowledge before moving to the next. This will confuse you as I am sure it confuses everyone in that situation.

    4. To be a 'good' nurse depends on many things. Firstly you need to want to be a nurse. A compassionate and caring attitude and a genuine concern for others coupled with the ability to be objective. If you have the basics then the rest will follow with experience. Watch others around you. Choose a role model, someone you respect that can guide you and help you to acomplish your aims. Remeber they were once like you, you cannot expect to be an acomplished professional overnight.

    One more thing, choose a branch of nursing that appeals to you. When you have finished your basic core training you may want to specialise in a certain field. Take time to reflect on your achievements every day and outline your goals for tomorrow.

    Above all, do not let your work rule your life. Make time for fun and laughter with your friends

    Dear freinds .. I read all your posts and they are really good and I wanted to share you ...concerning your question dear Yen Yel I think it comes under the name of ( challenges of the audience )
    In my book I found this , you may find it too long , but I guess it helps
    People may be afraid of speaking for an audience . fears can be of two main : fears about the audience and fears about themsleves ..
    Some examples :
    Fears about the audience :
    1- they will interrupt me ,which will confus me ..
    2- they will ask difficult questions
    3- they will see that I am fearful
    4- they will hear my mistakes
    5- they will not understand what I mean
    6- they will dislike me
    secondly ... fears about themsleves
    1- I failed before and will probably fail again
    2- I don't have the necessary skills
    3- I will make mistakes
    4- I will forget what I wanted to say
    5- I will not be able to bring out a single word
    6- I will be very nervous
    If your fears are in this two list you should feel relieved already . It means that your fears are very common and that most speakers share your fears . the audience will not notice you fears better that you were able to notice them in speakers you have listened to ...the problem is that many speakers feel that the audience is the enemy and doing a presentation is like going to war .you should be aware that nearly always the audience is friendly and wants to help you rather then condemn you . they want you to succeed because they are aware of the difficulties of speaking in public ...
    Stress :
    to some extend stress is good , stress guarantees that you are alert .. remember why you feel stressed when you play complex computer games or drive fast .. If a formula 1 driver were not stressed he would never win .. the trick is to control stress such as 1- accept your body's reaction as normal
    2- try to relax your body , take some deep breaths
    3- move hands , arms , feet
    the most impotant things are 1 – consider errors as learning experience
    2- imagine yourself succeeding
    3- don't have the " wait and see " attitude , take control over the situation by anticipating things that may go wrong
    dear Yen Yel .. I know it's too long but I think it's helpful to read it all
    take care
