Some instructions for making and giving the speech

- Prepare your speech and hand it out to your teacher by the date which has been given to you.
- You will get your speech back in time in order to rehearse it properly before the actual delivery of the speech in class.

Things to remember while writing the speech and rehearsing it:
a. Mark the points which you want to emphasize on the paper (e.g. with a colour).
b. Remember to use the body language as well.
c. Use the appropriate phrases at the beginning and at the end of your speech.
(Open Road, p. 54-55)

- You have the role of "An ACTIVE listener" (the body language, fillers, ...)
