This is the third of three episodes about presentation skills. In this episode, Jeff Hull discusses transition sentences with Nichibei student Junko.

Kevin:
Hello and welcome again. This is Nichibei Kaiwa Gakuin Podcasting. A great place to review English words and phrases. My name is Kevin Jones. This is the third of three episodes dealing with presentation skills. This episode we have a question from Nichibei student Junko.
Junko:
Hi Kevin. How are you.
Kevin:
Very well, thank you. And also with us in the Nichibei studio is instructor Jeff Hull. Hello Jeff, it's good to see you.
Jeff Hull:
Thanks Kevin. Same here.
Kevin:
In the past two episodes we have talked first about Presentations introductions and last episode we talked about question control. Junko, what do you have for us this week?
Junko:
OK, here's my situation. I'm writing my presentation about women and video games. The introduction, body and conclusion are finished. However I don't have any good transitions between the sections. Do I really need to use transitions? Are they important?
Kevin:
BBB. What are your thoughts on transitions for Junko's presentation?
Jeff Hull:
Well, First Junko, I want to say that transitions are very important. Since your audience is only listening and not reading your presentation, transitions tell your audience where you are in your presentation. So, yes, transitions are very important to your presentation.
Junko:
Could you make some suggestons for good transitions?
Jeff Hull:
You said you need some transitions between the sections of your presentation. For this you can use a basic transition sentence which quickly summarizes the previous section and briefly introduces the topic of the next section. A simple example of this would be the words now let's move on to or now let's take a look at , which provide the transition language between your sections and help your audience understand which section you are on. These transition sentences sound like this... "I've told you about A, now let's move on to B"... or ... "that's A, now let's take a look at B".
Junko:
Those sound good. I'd like to try one of those transitions.
Jeff Hull:
OK Junko. What's the topic of your first section?
Junko:
The topic of the first section of my presentation is The History of Video Games and Women Players.
Jeff Hull:
And how about the topic of your second section?
Junko:
The second topic is, A Market Analysis of Women and Video Games.
Jeff Hull:
OK, Fine. Now just put your topics into the "A" and "B" positions of the phrases we just studied.
Junko:
OK. So, I've told you about The History of Video Games and Women Players, now let's move on to A Market Analysis of Women and Video Games.
Jeff Hull:
Great Junko. That should work just fine
Junko:
Yeah, thanks. That sounds great. Thanks for your help.
Jeff Hull:
No problem Junko, and good luck with your presentation.
Kevin:
Now let's review the target transition sentences in this episode. I've told you about A, now let's move on to B. or , I've told you about A, now let's look at B.
