Hello everyone, It’s good to see you all here. First of all, for those people who don’t know me, let me introduce myself. My name is Huynh.
As you can see on the screen, today’s topic is Mount Rushmore. It should take about 4 minutes of your time. So If you have any questions, please ask them after my presentation.
I’ve divided my talk into 3 parts. Firstly, I wanna show you is its introduction. Then, it will be history. Finally, I’m gonna tell you about its tourism.
Now I start off by introducing some information about it. Mount Rushmore is the national park service, located in the South Dakota of the United States. It has the face of four presidents carved in the side of a mountain named Rushmore. Look at this photo (Point at screen and explain) In order from left to right: this is George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. Each president is 18 meters tall.
These photos were taken at night. In this photo (explain the third photo) There is one flag for each of the fifty states .
Ok, I’ve just told you about the introduction. Now, Let me move on to the history.
Mt Rushmore started in 1923 as an idea of Doane Robinson, the founder of the South Dakota Historical Society. He thought this would bring thousands of tourists to the South Dakota and take occasion to celebrate the 150 years of American history.
In 1927, Mt Rushmore was made by Gutzon Borglum and his son, Lincoln Borglum, together with over 400 men. They used dynamite which is a kind of gunpowder to clear away unwanted rocks. It took almost 14 years to complete, from 1927 to 1941. The entire project cost about 1 million dollars.
Let’s now take a look at the tourism:
Although it has been completed for a long time, it started opening for tourism in 1998. Nowadays, Mount Rushmore has become the top tourist attraction in the United States. There are over 3 million visitors each year. If you get a chance to visit the United States, this may be the best choice for you.
And that brings me to the end of my presentation. Let me give you a summary of what I’ve been talk about over last 3 minutes:
Mt Rushmore is located in the South Dakota, in the US. It has the face of four presidents. It was made by Gutzon Borglum and his son, together with over 400 men. They have worked on the project about 14 years. Nowadays, it’s the top tourist attraction with almost 3 million visitors each year.
Ok, Now I’ll be happy to answer any questions you may have. Thank you all for attention.
Some feelings when it’s over
Vậy là môn thuyết trình đã xong!
Thi xong môn địa lý kinh tế, thằng bé hồ hởi chạy sang bên A2 thi thuyết trình, ngồi đợi cả tiếng cuối cùng đến gần trưa, cô giáo cho sang buổi chiều.
Mặc dù chuẩn bị tinh thần khá là kỹ lưỡng nhưng lên bảng vẫn cú run, cái kiểu xếp gần cuối danh sách, chờ đợi mấy đứa lên thuyết trình mà tim bắn cả ra ngoài.
Nội dung bài này chuẩn bị khá là kỹ. Nhưng nói hơi ấp úng và bị sai vài từ không có trong đây, không nhìn về phía khán giả mà toàn nhìn vào màn hình, 🙁 . Cũng hơi thất vọng khi mặt bằng điểm chung buổi sáng cao hơn buổi chiều.
Cuộc đời mình đã không giành cho nó, nhưng phải chấp nhận!!!
