How To Improve Your Speech

The other day, I brought my student to a speech contest Division Level Voice of Asia Speech Contest.
My contestant was tensed during his delivery. it was her first time. Aside from that, he was more convenient with writing NOT in speaking, she told me. But I told her that was her chance to improve herself. Easier said than done..
She did not get a place but she did good.
After the contest, the judges were given a chance to share some tips on how to improve one’s speech – extemporaneous or impromptu.
One judge said: Good posture, less unnecessary movement which is distracting. She added that the voice projection, the stress for emphasis should also be considered.
But I was impressed with the other judge who said: Think of PREP.
Start with a Point (P), then support reason/s (R) for your point. Then give Examples (E)to elaborate. And lastly, go back to your Point (P) by giving a concluding statement.
Very helpful. I hope we’ll make it next time.
