Wants to use material for trainees
Topic: Boyd Question Answer
January 28, 2013
i am an English instructor to Angolan oil and gas trainees who are coming to Canada to study both the industry as well as English. would i be able to include this page, and the information contained therein, in my classroom? that would require making a Word document (for my use only) which would be projected in the classroom setting only. i would like to use the document in the classroom both in Angola and here in Canada.

You have permission to include the material for your students provided you include a reference and link to the web address.
Note that other material in the School for Champions website might be useful to your students.
How to improve my pronunciation
January 26, 2013
How To Improve My pronunciation
Lim - Malaysia
Speaking carefully and breaking words into their syllables helps to improve pronunciation. For example: "How to im-prove my pro-nun-ci-a-tion" breaks the words into their syllables. Note that "tion" is pronounced "shun" in English.
Another good practice is to listen to recordings of people who have good pronunciation and repeat what is said. This teaches you to pronounce words correctly. Also record your voice when speaking to become aware of mistakes you may make.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in improving your pronunciation.
Competting in a speech contest
January 24, 2013
My name is Kristen. Coming up soon for FBLA I am going to competition and competing in public speaking. I have given speeches before, but would like some professional opinions.
Kristen - USA
For a competition, the first part is writing out a good speech.
Pick a topic that will appeal to both the judges and the audience. It should also be a topic of great interest to you. Try to keep the speech simple and to the point. Add some stories or personal experiences that relate to the topic. Humorous stories often are appealing.
Practice giving your speech a number of times to family and friends, so that you have a smooth delivery. Also, you can see weak areas or sentences that are awkward and need improvement.
Perhaps check with your local Toastmasters Club to possibly get advice.
I hope these ideas help. Best wishes in your competition.
How can I be a good public speaker?
January 12, 2013
How can i be an orator and good public speaker. Must i memorise everything that i have say .i.e.speaking without reading from a written text?.
TENA - Nigeria
You want to speak on subjects that really interest you, such that you have many facts on hand. This helps you write a speech that is easy to remember.
It is good to start with short 5-minute speeches before you try longer speeches. You need to practice your speeches in front of friends before giving the speech to strangers.
A good place to practice and improve your speaking skills is through Toastmasters. See Nigerian Toastmasters clubs for a list of clubs in your area.
With practice and experience, you can become a good orator. Best wishes in your speaking success.

Speaking to primary and secondary students
Topic: Know Your Audience
November 10, 2012
ARE THERE ANY SICNIFICANT DIFFERENCE BETWEEN DELIVERING A SPEECH FOR PRIMARY KIDS AND SECONDARY KIDS? IF SO OR OTHERWISE, MAY I GET A SAMPLE OF BOTH FROM YOU.
CHARLES - Kenya
It is always good to know your audience, their skill-level, and their interests.
When speaking to the older children, you can use larger words and more complex language than with the younger children. You want to make sure they understand what you say. But with the older children, you do not want to speak down to them.
It makes your speech more acceptable to the kids if you can refer to things they are interested or familiar with. Secondary students have a winder range of interests and are often into various fads.
In either case, it is good to have fun with the kids, while still providing them with good information.
I'm sorry, but I don't have sample speeches for those audiences, but I am sure you will do a good job in speaking to the kids.
I need help with public speaking!

Help Me Asap ! I need help with public speaking NOW!
kemoni - USA
You can go thought our lessons to get some useful tips. But I would suggest looking into Toastmasters for some speaking guidance and practice.
I think you live in the Philadelphia area, so check Toastmasters for a club nearby. You can also find clubs in other areas.
There is no obligation to attend a meeting.
I think that is the best way to get started.
Best wishes in your public speaking.
Is more than communication needed for success?
August 8, 2012
Communication skill is not only enough to achieve a success? i need some more points and example
The first thing in achieving success is to find out what you like to do and what you are good at. In what areas do you have knowledge and skill?
This is the starting point. Then, you can communicate about your dreams and skills to other people, which will help you succeed. But note that communication goes two ways, and you must also listen to what others have to say.
