    Re: [ESL Weblog] Tips and suggestions on public speaking.

    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.

    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!

    Hi,
    i agree with Mad-ox that it is a good idea to listen to it
    It does work well if you listen to the BBC
    I always enjoy listening to it

    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).

    Steps For Becoming A Speaking Star In Public

    Steps For Becoming A Speaking Star In Public

    Giving a public speech can tangle the nerves, since most of us find it hard to speak publicly in a crowd of strangers. Thus, the problems we can experience before a speech starts could make some us want to turn and run.

    Before giving a speech a person has to consider
    Crowd
    Words
    Body languages
    Facts
    Notes
    Nervousness
    Preparedness and more

    It is a lot of weight on a single person, yet many of us give speeches nearly everyday of the week. How do those speaking on television give speeches without failing or feeling nervous? How can anyone stand on a stage and give a speech in the first place?

    David.

    There are the steps we need to take to ensure we have a good handle on what we are talking and going to be talking about.

    At first, these steps might seem like they are taking forever. The more we practice the easier it will become.
