What am i going to do to acquire the confident in public speaking? I could'nt do so because everytime i speak in front of the class i'm thingking that my grammar is wrong and so once i've step the stage all of my previous thoughts vanished as a result i became embarashed which caused me of not reciting again.
Also, practice in front of a mirror. Pretend the image in the mirror is the audience and speak to it. Start by using material you have written down, and then gradually speak about something without writing it first.
When speaking to an audience, one technique used is to select one person in the audience and speak to that person.
Remember - many of the people listening to you feel just like you do!
