While I made my speech I felt nervous because I am not used to doing speeches in front of people. Also I was in a panic mode because I forgot all of the little detail I was supposed to say. I think that the best thing during the speech for me was being confident. I think that the eye contact I made with the audience made the speech feel confident. I think that I could improve on my hand gestures. During my speech I tried to use hand gestures but as soon as I got nervous and in a panic mode I started to hold onto my note cards with both of my hands so for the next time I will pay more attention and practise more on my hand gestures.
By doing this speech I learned how to prepare for a speech. I have learnt to check everything from how you stand to how you talk while practising. I think that it is important to learn how to structure a speech so when you want to tell an audience a important issue the information will be more organised and clear.
I think that I could use persuasive speeches in life. For example, when you need extensions in school projects you would have to use persuasion or when you want something from your mom.
