How to write and deliver a speech

Detailed advice on how to develop a convincing line of argument, and engaging your audience, as well as a checklist of the language features of a formal speech. The resource includes comprehensive notes on the following aspects to support students plan and rehearse a speech:

  • structure
  • language
  • content
  • delivery.

Sample content

Structure

Timings: Make sure you will stick to your time allocation by practising reading aloud and timing yourself. You could even do a word count of a document you read aloud, to be precise!

Introduction and conclusion: Set some time aside for both your introduction and conclusion, and then divide the balance of time amongst the ideas you must address.

Your main points: Write the body of your speech first of all, using a topic sentence and evidence and then link your evidence to the main point for each of your ideas.
