Camna nak bagi public speaking/presentation kita on point?

Tired of using "so basically" in every sentence?

I've been there too.

So basically, ini ayat-ayat yang kita boleh guna instead:
1. Intro

Linking Words (Penanda Wancana) ni sebenarnya penting to add cohesion and flair to your presentation.

We use Linking Words to :
- connect key ideas
- make a supporting statement
- highlight key points
- summarise our points
2. Starting your sentence

🚫 So basically

Use these instead:
✅ To start off
✅ Firstly
✅ Speaking of ____ (insert topic here)
3. Emphasize your ideas

🚫 So basically

Use these instead:
✅ To emphasize
✅ Without a doubt
✅ Obviously
4. Adding/Supporting your ideas

🚫 So basically

Use these instead:
✅ Furthermore
✅ Moreover
✅ Apart from this/that
5. Contrast/comparing your ideas

🚫 So basically

Use these instead:
✅ However
✅ On the other hand
✅ Despite this/that
6. Summarize your ideas

🚫 So basically

Use these instead:
✅ Ultimately
✅ To conclude
✅ To sum up
7. I hope this will somehow help in your job interviews, business pitching or your daily English conversation 🙌
