YOU WILL PRESENT YOUR COLLAGE IN ENGLISH

  • Use prepositions of place to say where something is. (Example: On the left in the background)
  • Use “we can see” or “there is” to present the thing.
  • Add an adjective to describe it. (Example: An oversize television.)
  • Use “because” to justify your choice.

EXAMPLE PRESENTATION PHRASE

"On the left in the background we can see an oversize iPhone with a Netflix logo on the screen because in 2016 we can watch what we want where we want."

Prepositions of place, precise vocabulary, justifies with 'because', modal verbs... It's all in there!
