I think I didn’t do as well as I wanted to because I stammered a lot of times in the speech. I think I did well on preparing my notes, and objects, but I don’t think I practiced a lot in front of people, and that is why I was nervous. I researched a lot and had it in my head, but I think I didn’t express it well, and that is also because I was nervous. I think I should of re-done it, because I wanted to prepare it better. Also, I think I should have a stronger closing statement, without stammering. When I think about it now, I think I didn’t have a strong hook, and I think I could make a better hook. I looked at my notes too much, and also didn’t put impact in my voice in important parts.
I think I could use persuasive speech in my life now when I need to convince my parents to let me buy something, generally when someone disagrees with me about something, and when I want them to do what I want to do in a fair way. I could also use persuasive speech in the future for when I have a conference for my job for letting me in. I can also use it for voting speeches so that they would elect me like I wanted. Same as now, can use persuasive speech when I disagree with someone, and to make my thoughts and ideas go through fairly.
Personally I think I did well on preparing my speech, I wrote down information and the main idea of what I was saying on my index card, so that I would know what to say. I also think I prepared good for preparing my visual resource (the pictures). However, I didn’t practice in front of people much, and that is why I really got nervous and didn’t notice that I didn’t show my visual resources so that they can see it clearly, and I also didn’t show it when it was the right timing. It is important to prepare your speech well because I if you do not, you will not know what to say, and it is hard to make a good speech on the point. Also, I learned this this time, but I think it is important to practice in front of people so that you will not be nervous, because I only practiced in front of people once, and I was really nervous in the speech. It is important to be able to present your speech well because if your point doesn’t strongly go through to the audience, there isn’t a point presenting your speech. If you have good points and the listener agrees with it, it is usually a good speech, but if it’s a bad speech, the listener wouldn’t agree with your point.
Overall, I think I didn’t do well as I thought and the main reason is that I was too nervous, and to improve this point, from next time I would practice more in front of people so that I wouldn’t be nervous like this time.
