    I need to do a French presentation, and I'm STUMPED on what to talk about.

    Just want to know what some of you are interested in so I can get some ideas.
    Or you can throw an idea my way.

    If I gather other people's opinions, I could perhaps get a better idea myself.

    There aren't really any limits for the topic of the presentation, and I can also add soome questions to disscuss the topic as well. I can do it on pretty much anything I want.

    Well, I could probably talk about p0rn, but I don't have the stomach to talk about that in front of a class of thirty. Gay marriage has already been done, by the way.

    In schools the subject matters little, what matters is the ability to throw in a few hundred verbs and adjectives (J'adore les films d'Amor or dans ma chambre il y a une chaise rogue: I hate romance films personally and nobody cares about the red chair in my room but as lines in French they feature a bunch of stuff teachers are on the lookout for. Similar techniques also apply when you are asked questions: lie your ass off if it allows you to get in some adjectives).
    Mr Izzard sums it up rather nicely

    Still tricks for presentations, especially ones that ultimately mean nothing:
    make your audience laugh once or twice.
    If you are going to be asked questions seed one or two beforehand (most people will only stick their hand up if nobody else does, if you seed one that will likely be avoided although your teacher will likely chime in)

    Inferences, the inferential process and the relevance in Sperber's and Wilson's Relevance Theory. That's my latest presentation. Dan Sperber is French, BTW.

    I like comics, too.

    How about internet and gaming addiction?

    And say how you've even seen before someone who bought 2 GTA:CWs just to support rockstar..... [​IMG]

    Or

    The stupidity of the modern world?
