    Question Presentations

    Hello

    I'm going to give a presentation this week. What is the difference between an oral presentation and a regular presentation? Or is it the same?

    At the start of the presentation, I'd like to say that I'm happy to present my topic. Is it OK to say "I'm happy to give this presentation about Hong Kong" or is there another way to say this?

    Thanks for your help

    Massimo

    An oral presentation is a spoken presentation. I don't think there's a definition of a "regular presentation"!

    I would start with something like "I'm delighted to have the opportunity to deliver this presentation on Hong Kong".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Hi

    Thanks for your help. I have one more question though:

    Is there a difference if I say: .. give a presentation ON something .. and give a presentation ABOUT something
