    speak to/give a speech to

    Hi there,
    Please proofread the following sentences

    1. Your teacher asked you to pair up with another classmate to give a speech in an assembly. The speech should include the mission of UNICEF and its work.

    2. What is the lifespan of a dog?

    Thanks
