Good afternoon everyone, as you know, my name is MIA. In my presentation today, I'm going to talk about Vampire [ˈvæmˌpaɪə]. There are six part of this presentation, which are What's the vampire, The history of Vampires, The vampire's features and fears, Vampire's propagation [ˌprɔpəˈgeɪʃən], The reality of Vampires and Vampires on the movies.
So, to begin with, let's look at what's the vampire.
Vampires are mythological or folkloric[ˈfəukˌlɔ:rik] creatures who subsist[səbˈsɪst] by feeding on the life essence [ˈesns] of living creatures, regardless of whether they are undead or a living person. In other words, vampires are the creatures that feed on with blood.

In 1897, Bram Stoker[ˈstəʊkə] wrote a novel named Dracula. It is remembered as the typical vampire novel and provided the basis of the modern vampire legend. The success of Dracula spawned a distinctive [dɪˈstɪŋktɪv] vampire genre [ʒɑ:r], which is still popular in the 21st century, with books, films, and television shows.
The next point is about the vampire's features and fear. Firstly. Vampire' have Pale[peil] skin, red eyes and long and sharp canines[ˈkeɪnaɪn], they are Slept in Coffin [ˈkɔ:fɪn] and have ability of Change into an animal like bats. [bæt] In fact, they are Bloodsucking[ˈblʌdˌsʌkiŋ] and have eternal life. Of course, they are also afraid of somethings. People usually believed that vampires are afraid fo Garlics [ˈɡɑ:lik], cross, sunshine and holy[ˈhəuli] water.
Next, I'd like to move on Vampire's propagation. If a person want to become vampire, he must exhaust his blood by vampire, and then immediately accept the counter-feeding vampire's blood, the person become vampire and can be turned into a new family.
However, although vampire is mythological creature, there are two people is called vampire in reality. They are Elizebeth Bathory [iˈlizəbəθ] and Dracula.
Elizebeth Bathory was known as the bloody countess[ˈkaʊntɪs and she lured [luə]young women to her castle [ˈkɑ:slso she could bathe in their blood. She believed that if she bathed in their blood it would give her eternal youth [ju:θ]. She kept a diary and before she was stopped she murdered [ˈmə:də]612 young women.
Dracula, He silenced the demonstrators [ˈdemənstreitə] and country by bloody and cruel force. therefore, people called him is "vampire".
The final part is vampires on movies. The classic films are Dracula and Interview with the Vampire. Nowadays, the hot films about vampire are Twilight and The Vampire Diaries
