Oral presentation skills for ESP students are vital for their professional communication at seminars, workshops, student conferences and professional associations. However, the students’ oral presentations lack fluency and accuracy, which is caused by inability to process the ESP lexis spontaneously. Since oral presentations involve multiskills, a carefully planned and constructed guideline will help develop students' receptiveness to oral presentations during their ESP course. By making students aware of basic points, types, characteristics and styles of scientific and technical communication, the paper is to serve as a starting point in an attempt to make them expand and perfect their oral presentation skills. The essential elements of the presentation and some tips and practical techniques on preparing and delivering a successful oral presentation are also discussed. The meta-analysis will highlight and bring forth a number of ideas to improve oral presentation skills for ESP students.
