YOUR CONVINCING SPEECH

You’re going to have a speech in the classroom soon. Exciting!

What to do and how to do it?

The purpose of your speech is to explain to your audience WHY the person you chose is VERY IMPORTANT. You need to CONVINCE (övertyga) your audience that the things this person did during their lifetime were amazing and great and very beneficial (välgörande) and therefore make this person a VERY IMPORTANT PERSON.

To do this, you’ll probably need to present some facts from the person’s life. You’ll probably need to use good English. And you’ll probably need to talk to the audience in a lively manner, meaning that you’ll need to have good body language, a lot of eye contact and some inspiring words for them. This means that you’ll have to practice your speech well at home, so that you can focus on the delivery at school. Your speech needs to be between 2 min and 4 min long!

Good luck!
