Introduction:

Begin with a short prayer citation or any regular greeting remarks to address the floor accordingly . Greet the chairperson, the VIPs and the audience. Introduce your TOPIC and include also a SPECIFIC PURPOSE STATEMENT.

Body:

Plan to talk on a topic that you know best. Decide on talking about 2 to 3 points only. For each point you choose to talk about, provide also 2 to 3 supporting details or 2 to 3 examples to clarify or explain the point.

Make use of some idiomatic expressions and/or phrasal verbs where possible.

Conclusion:

Conclude your speech by reminding the audience of the main idea of your speech. In addition, you may want to repeat only the 2 to 3 main points that you have talked about in the body of your speech. Exit your speech with a punch line where possible. Again, you may want to mak euse of some idiomatic expressions and/or phrasal verbs.

GOOD LUCK.
