Answer

You can tell about a family vacation you had, some funny things you pets have done, or something interesting you saw around the school. The idea is to pick a subject that is both interesting to you and that the other students can relate to. Like the problems you have getting ready for school in the morning. Almost everyone has problems rushing to school. Of course, you can exaggerate a little.

Answer

I doubt you will find the material in the form of a speech. Your best bet is to write out a short essay, outline it, and then put it in the form of a speech.

Your subject is very general. You need to be specific. What aspect of pharmacy in the health care of children? Cost? Availability? Hazards? What type of children? Babies? Handicapped?

Struggling putting together 5 minute speech

Topic: General

Question

August 29, 2004

I am applying to become an Officer in the AirForce and I am struggling with putting together a strong 5 minute speech, can you help me please. My day of the speech is next Tuesday the 7th September 2004

Rob - Australia

Answer

You could try using the computerized speech writer as a starter.
http://www.school-for-champions.com/speaking/autowrite.htm

The most important thing is to establish a topic that will provide a positive impression. Three points with a few illustrations is good for a 5-minute speech.

One thing is to first aim your speech directly at the commanding officer, almost as if it was a personal presentation. Then you can look around to the others in the room, making eye contact.
Best wishes in your speech and in becoming an officer. I am sure you will succeed.

Needs to write informative speech on candy

Topic: General

Question

February 1, 2004

I HAVE TO DO AN INFORMATIVE SPEECH ABOUT COOKING PRALINE CANDY. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO START AND WHAT INFORMATION TO USE

THELMA - USA

2200

Answer

First decide what specific information concerning the cooking the candy for your speech. "About" is too vague. Is it the steps involved in cooking the candy? An overview of the ingrediants? Problems in cooking the candy?

Being more specific helps keep the speech on a focus. Then you can make a list of facts.

Also, try using the Computerized Speech Writer at:
http://www.school-for-champions.com/speaking/autowrite.htm

It might help you organize the speech. Best wishes in the speech.

Wants to learn how to write speeches for her boss

Topic: General

Question

January 28, 2004

i want to learn how to write speeches for my boss- the president of my country and to improve my writing skills in writing reports,memos,summaring bulky reports and writing letters

Fatmata - UK

Answer

Writing skills require much practice. In speeches and reports, the content and message is most important. You want to convey the thoughts and ideas of your boss correctly. If English is not your native language, it is good to have someone edit your work to make sure grammar and spelling is correct.

Although you can learn writing online, it really is better to take some classes at a local college or school. That way, you can get good guidance and practice.

Best wishes in your writing.
