    Smile presentation

    I know you are against this project, but listen to Tracy's presentation. You may think differently about it afterwards.


    Do you listen to or watch/look at/enjoy/appreciate someone's presentation? I have a feeling that listen to here sounds wrong.

    No, it's OK. I suspect you're over-interpreting "presentation" as something that has to be visual (as the root present suggests).

    But if you found this on a web-site, and clicking on the link leads to a multi-media presentation, "listen to" sounds a bit lame. (And of course, in this context, one of your other options might be better (appreciate or enjoy), because different viewers of the web-site will have different browsers and different settings: a person with Firefox may see something that a user of Lynx won't.)
