IV. Course review
ps2-3. Find your opening
Your opening statement must intrigue the audience, so they lean forward and say, "And then what happened?"
When giving a speech about a travel adventure, feel free to write in the first person, assuming you were the one who had the adventure.
But no matter, read the text and study the pictures. Then write an opening paragraph for your speech. Pretend you were there. Make it fun. Add some research facts. Two or three sentences is enough.
ps2-3p. Find your opening
Work on creating a strong opening. Include the "And then what happened?"
Don't give away the whole story. Just enough for the audience to want more.
Scribble an entire page of notes. Screenshot your notes page. And make a video of you speaking your memorized opening.
Do it twice to show that you have learned it. It should be automatic.
Feel free to try a few high-energy, amusing, and intriguing styles. Test what works best for you with this speech.
