    They are between 17 - 20 years old. But as it is known in general that Thai students are rather poor at English especially in conversation and in giving a speech. That why I asked how to teach speech for beginner.

    Find a book for home reading. Ask them to act out the scenes from that book in class. When they get to know the characters better have them improvise conversation in would be situations. For a person who is shy and lacks confidence it is sometimes easier to express somebody else's personality than their own.

    Re: How to teach speech for beginner

    Can we clarify whether we are talking about speech as in holding a conversation, or speech as in 'My lords, ladies and gentlemen. Unaccustomed as I am....'?

    Oh sorry I muddled things up...
    We should talk about speech in 'a talk, especially a formal one about a particular subject, given to a group of people' sense..

    Re: How to teach speech for beginner

    I mean teach students to know how to give a short and simple speech, not in a sense of everyday conversation that they use some dialogue.

    Do you mean giving a speech? If so, that is not a beginner task at all in my opinion- with a beginner, you couldn't expect more than simple ways of expressing thanks or something. Most people find speeches hard in their first language.
