    Hello Tdol,
    Thank you for the artical link its very informative and I would like to add some more information to this thread on public speaking.For every speech you have to prepare and make it perfect and Using your review tools to finish your speech is one of the key to success. When you are not writing your speech your mind is relaxed and will ponder on thoughts that could prove helpful. Review those thoughts to see if anything comes out that can fit into your speech.
    Overall Review
    The week you are to give the speech is at what time you will require to conduct an overall review. This will deepen your understanding, as well as bring your concepts together. You can also add or delete areas if the light comes on during this review. Sometimes we fail to see things at the time we are writing.
    Now you can create some review tools, such as checklist, flash cards, and mind maps. This will take a large project, breaking it down so that you can get a grip on the speech. This will also improve your confidence. Donít miss out on any tools otherwise you may find yourself in a problem as you are giving your speech.
    Public Speaking

    In my opinion is that having conversation with others especially with native English folks is the best way to enrich our vocabulary! I also can advice you to listen live the BBCworldservice. You do not have to be disappointed if you do not understand everything. The more you listen to the BBc the more you will learn!
    HAVE A NICE DAY!

    It does work well if you listen to the BBC

    The only problem is that the BBC speakers pronounce their news clearly and without accent. Most other native speakers do not .
    So it's advisable to listen to other channels as well...Nonetheless, it definitely helps (I guess).

    I disagree with your opinion completely!

    We must not forget that real accent have only the English peolple. You must born with it! Obviously, I'm speaking generaly, I'm sure that there are some of us but only a few who have a well English accent. Our goal should be the following: to eandeavour to speak as clear as possible. This can be done only by practice! Repetitio est mater studiorum!

    Have a nice day!

    Don't different people have different goals?
