                   3. If you can more smile would be better.
Question: In your opinion, does the teacher's teaching experience also affect on students listening test anxiety?
1. Your PPT design is professional, especially on methodology part, because is step by step to introduce the data.
2. You highlight the key words, such ad slide 7.

    So, maybe you should try to put some key words on the slide, not all sentence.
