    Persuasive Speech

    • 527 Words
    • 3 Pages

    After my persuasive speech about why people should study Chinese, I felt relieved and confident. I delivered this speech within the time limits, spoke two languages in a confident manner, and engaged my audience. While I walked out feeling good about my speech, I could also point out everything that went wrong. My video link did not play where I wanted, but it did not fluster me. Then, I forgot to provide more of a background for my sources and repeat the questions when asked, but acknowledging mistakes is the first step to rectifying them. Overall, my persuasive speech went well and could have benefited from some alterations, but I am proud for finishing my last speech on a positive note. When addressing an audience, clearly articulating…

    When I am up front in of an audience various things happen to me. My face starts to get hot and red really quick so then the room becomes very hot as well. Along with my hands start to get sweaty so that causes me to move my fingers around to make them not as sweaty. I like to shift my weight back and forth because it keeps me moving.

    I performed a speech about why teenage relationships are beneficial on November 1st, 2016 in front of my speech class. Public speaking is something that I had been practicing since I was in the sixth grade, however it is apparent that I continue to struggle with nerves. When my teacher called my name, I realized that I was shaking and trembling pretty badly. I told myself I had practiced beforehand and I knew what I was doing. There are many things I noticed while reviewing my speech, critiquing…

    Reflection I remember going to the College advisor and trying to figure out what class I would be taking for the fall semester of 2016. I was a little late in the enrollment process and some of the classes I wanted to take were either not available or completely filled. So my advisor asked me if I would be interested in taking speech class. I thought to myself “I don’t really like talking in front of people but it is a requirement.” So I signed up for Introduction to Speech Communication…

    As a whole, I do not believe that this was my best speech, but there were parts of this speech that I believe that I did better on than the last speech. Like B.B. King I love to learn and hope that in my next speech I will notice new areas of growth in my speaking ability. My reflection begins with eye contact and body movement, moving on to the use of voice, and ending with the organization of the speech. Opening with delivery, the thing that stuck out the most was that my eye contact was poor…

    situation, the topic, and the audience. The informative speech was one of the harder speeches I had to give since it had to include more research, and more hard facts then the previous speeches. Therefore, it needed more preparation. During preparation part of the informative speech a key learning moment for me was that you can’t procrastinate and do it the night before. That means don’t procrastinate on topic selection, research, or on the crafting of the outline and speech. The book states…

    Informative speech I decided to do it on Bullying. I feel that my open statement was clear and got the audiences attention. It was something that everyone knew about it and could relate too. However, once I got past the Attention grabber, I started to stutter, and my wording got a little messed up. I was thinking faster than I speaking. Although I did not say a clear preview statement in my head I did, so I have to learn to speaker slower, so I can process what I am saying. Before I presented my…
