Speech – best holiday

7A Drama: Informative Speech05 from YIS Arts on Vimeo.

I do not know what my best skill is however, I think my best skill was that I had some volume because I get nervous most of the times, but even though I’m nervous I think I have good volume each time. I think it would have been better if I had more volume though. I should improve on looking at the audience more and have more emotion into my speech because when I look at my palm cards most of the time, I can’t look at the audience’s face to see if they are enjoying my speech or not. Also, if I don’t have emotion in my words, it will be boring and if I have more emotion I can express how I feel more.

My speech didn’t meet the time that was 2 minutes to 3 minutes. If I had more details in my speech I think it would meet the time and also make it more understanding to the audiences. I didn’t have any hand gestures so I think maybe next time I can use gestures too.


Another speech which was captivating was Grace’s:

I think her best skill was her volume and the way she caught the audience’s attention which is the hook. I think her skill is volume because she makes her voice stronger for the place she wants to tell the audience more. Also her hook shows both sides of opinions.

I think she can improve talking more smoothly because she sometimes stopped. If she had more practice time, I think it would have been a wonderful speech.





I think my weakness in this piece is when we have the middle finger then the scoop. This movement is the most important move in the first part because we play it a lot. I think I am not good at it becuase I sometimes play the different sound. Also I think I am not good at Page 4, second line, the first 2 measures because I always make a mistake by playing 8 instead of 9 or play 986 three times when we are supposed to play it two times.


However, I think I am getting good at playing the piece “chu chu” because I sometimes practice it with my fingers when I don’t have a koto near me and sometimes I practice with my koto too. My next goal is to remember the first part of this piece!
