If you plan to take the Academic exam, it is imperative that you prepare to meet –and perhaps exceed- the educational standards of your dream English-speaking university. Creating effective power point presentation, for one, is a key advantage in studying and working abroad. Some teachers in the IELTS review center in Baguio, for instance, are generous enough to give key points in creating a compelling presentation. Listed below are some characteristics of effective power point presentation that you may have learned from your classes in the IELTS review center in Baguio.
•    CLEAR
Keep a cohesive flow of idea to guide the readers. Indicate the objectives or place an outline at the beginning of the presentation to give viewers a clear view of the scope of the presentation.

•    LOUD
Always keep your audience in mind. Assess the readership of your content from a distance.  Use large font size, no more than 24 pt; you can use a bigger font size for the title to create emphasis. To check, read your content from a two-meter distance. If you speak in front of a larger audience, make sure that your texts remain readable with or without the aid of a projector.

•    SIMPLE
Do not over put animations and designs in your slides. Use three color combinations at most. You may consult the color wheel to determine which color combinations suit best. Another technique is to stick to one font style –sans serif fonts are highly recommended because they are more readable compared to other font families. 

•    COMPREHENSIVE
Apply the 6x7 rule –6 lines at most per slide, seven words at most per line. This technique helps readers focus on one topic per slide. Keep in mind that the presentation should only serve as a guide to your readers. Their focus must remain on you so put only key points in the slides. Use bullets instead of larger text chunks.

•    CONCISE
Use bullets, graphs, or diagrams instead of texts to clearly indicate distinctions and summarize ideas. Including pictures also help readers create adopt the message of the content. However, keep in mind that images are not alternative for contents. Moreover, minimize the use of photographs and other artworks in your presentation to avoid distracting the audience. Be sure that everything you include in the presentation is related to the topic.
The key to an effective presentation is to captivate your audience from the beginning up to the end. Learn more about important presentation tips and tricks by enrolling in an IELTS review center. Let the instructors in the IELTS review center in Baguio guide you toward your dream career abroad.
