Conquering Fear of public speaking

A 2010 Gallup poll that centered on adult fears found that 40 percent of adults reported their biggest fear was speaking in public or in front of audience. Likewise, fear of public speaking is one of the common fears that all Donggukians have.

From May 3rd, till June 7th, there is series of session that will help students to get rid of this problem. Every Tuesday, from 14:00 to 16:00, in the student CS center, main hall, students can get help on how to do well on their presentation and public speaking as well as future interviews. It centers on experiencing every kind of situation that one could be in and give a hand on how to conquer nervousness.

To get a sense of this series, there are a few tips provided by lecturer that will help students to deal with fear of public speaking One great tip is to take very deep breathes just prior to taking your place at the podium. This relaxes your body, helping to lower your blood pressure and clear your mind. Another trick is to pretend that you are all alone in front of a mirror. Nothing can beat being prepared for your speech. The more comfortable you are with your speech, the better that you will do.
