Discussion Topics

Overcoming fear and nervousness

  1. What is public speaking? Do you consider speaking in front of people that you know public speaking (e.g. family gathering)?
  2. Do you fear public speaking? What strategies do you use to calm your nerves before giving a public speech?
  3. Is there a difference between public speaking and conversation- both involve speakers and audiences?
  4. What types of public speaking can you think of (e.g. to persuade, to motivate, etc.)? Have you ever given any of those?
  5. Do you think that humour has a place in public speaking? Why or why not?

Crafting and delivering effective speeches

  1. What are the most important elements of a successful public speech?
  2. Have you ever given a speech that didn’t go as well as you had hoped? What did you learn from that experience?
  3. What techniques do you use to keep your audience engaged during a speech?
  4. Have you ever given a speech in a language other than your native one? If so, what were the challenges you faced?
  5. What advice would you give to someone who is nervous about giving their first public speech?
