How to prepare for a speech?
Some children will have stage nervousness. Some other times, it may be your first time in speech giving. In some other cases, children will be confused about how to prepare for the speech so that they can persuade the audience.
Here are some tips to prepare for the speech and deliver it effectively:
Observe the latest happenings: Watch news and read newspapers. Research only trusted and verified sources of information such as news channels and newspapers. Gather points from them.
Read books: Published and reputed books are trusted sources of information on any subject. Read prominent books on your speech topic. For better research, read multiple books instead of only one.
Prepare the first draft and then polish it: Collect the points from various sources. Prepare your first draft and then align them in a meaningful way. Then, prepare your final draft.
Read it aloud: Reading a topic aloud will help you to find out mistakes in it. Read the topic aloud and re-read it again. Give multiple readings aloud.
Practice in front of a mirror: Practice your speech in front of a mirror. Watch how good you are talking. Note if there are any breaks when you speak. Observe your body and hand movement along with facial expressions.
Eliminate unwanted words: We sometimes tend to use joining words such as ‘so’, ‘and’, ‘like’, ‘I mean’, etc. as a habit while talking. Watch your speech when you are talking in front of a mirror and eliminate such unwanted connecting words. Repeat the practice till you master your speech.
Watch other’s speeches: Listen or watch other speeches. You can refer to TED talks or prominent personalities on their Youtube channels or in the news. Watch their body language and how they are talking.
Make a trial speech: Once you gain confidence, give a trial speech before your family members or friends and take their feedback. Work on improving your speech delivery based on their feedback.
We hope these suggestions will help you in preparing and acing your speech. All the best.
