Pauses in paragraphs:
What is a pause?
Why do we pause?
When do we pause?
A pause is a short stop while speaking.
It’s usually a moment to take a breath.
The most common time to pause is at the end of the sentence or when there is a comma (a comma is this: ,).
Pauses in Presentations:
What other reason do we pause during presentation?
We pause during presentations to help people understand what you said.
A long pause during your presentation can help people understand you better.
You should do a long pause after a joke, after a very important idea, after a sentence that is difficult to understand.
It gives them a chance to think about what you said. We call this “giving it time to sink in.”
