FINAL 10-minute Speech (ACTIVITY 5d & 6)

Each participant is required to prepare an 8 to 10 minutes speech. The speech can be an informative, a persuasive, an argumentative or any type prefered by the participant. The flow of the speech should include the three main parts - Introduction, Body and Conclusion.
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.
