Presentation skill is an important employability skill that makes learners convey their ideas with confidence. It is a much required skill at workplaces, and employers look for it in employees during the interview process because presenting ideas with clarity and effectiveness is very much needed at workplaces. Developing presentation skill in classroom is important because it not only develops the communication skill of students but elevates their level of confidence. As presentation has become an indispensable part of tests pertinent to speaking, this study focuses on developing the presentation skill of students. It is believed that Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) techniques would help in achieving the task of making students present their ideas in English with confidence. A pilot study was carried out with a group of twenty students in order to assess the effectiveness of NLP techniques in developing the presentation skill of students. The study found a considerable difference in the presentation level of the students before and after implementing NLP techniques. Hence, the study affirms that NLP techniques are quite useful in improving the presentation skill of students.


Language acquisition requires psychological approach for it is closely related to the psychological needs of learners. As language acquisition is a fundamental part of human perception, various approaches and methods of language teaching have focused on catering to the psychological needs of learners. Linguists and language experts have been trying to enhance the quality of language teaching since the nineteenth century. Brown (2001) reports that in the century spanning the mid-1880s to the mid-1980s, the language teaching profession was involved in a search. The search was for "methods" or ideally a single method generalizable across widely varying audiences that would successfully teach students a foreign language in the classroom. Various studies have been conducted with a view to gauging how a language has to be acquired. The formulation of new methods in language teaching demands the role and participation of language teachers. Freeman and Anderson (2011) state that teachers must not only attempt to meet their students' learning needs, but they must also juggle other competing demands on their time and attention.
