:D I hate speaking in front of people! If you go to my profile, the other day I asked a similar question and there are some pretty good tips there. I just walk up, smile then start to talk about whatever it is. If you stutter just brush it off and take a breath. If you can, make notes or something then you won't get lost. My favorite tip someone said was to be confident because everyone you're presenting it too wants you to do good and lots of people have trouble with presentations and know how hard it is. Good luck!

Ugh I hate that, just tell yourself it's no big deal, which it really isn't. No one in class is even paying attention probably lol. And they all have to present too. No one wants to be there, the only one that cares is the teacher. Just follow the guide lines, talk at a good pace, eye contact. You can even joke around a little. Just keep in mind that its nothing and its only like two minutes, no biggie :)

Always start with a funny question about your presentation. Wait for a few seconds and answer with slight humor. Then begin your presentation...You will receive great reviews!!! Good Luck and SMILE with great EYE CONTACT

It's ok to get nervous but I always like to think of this Chinese quote that I've heard. The quote goes like this: It's ok to have butterflies in you're stomach, just have them fly in unison.

Have a glass of wine or shot of alcohol (no more than that) half an hour or so before, to relax yourself and get the jitters out - UNLESS you don't handle alcohol very well. I've never tried it, because I dread public speaking also. But, that's what I would try if I were in your situation.

Ha! Your answer made me laugh. Maybe, imagining that the people in the room are people you are comfortable around. Like your mum and dad, brothers and sisters and friends, even your pets.
