1. Four Types of Speech Delivery: Impromptu, Extemporaneous, Manuscript & Memorized
There are four ways in which a speaker can deliver his or her information. Once can speak from his head, commit every word to memory, read from a script or use a blended approach.
2. Using Vocal Qualities to Convey Meaning in Public Speaking
To keep your audience engaged, it is important to consider vocal qualities like volume, pace and pitch. These qualities are what keep your speech not only interesting but also engaging. Learn about vocal qualities in this lesson.
3. Considering Pronunciation, Articulation, and Dialect in Public Speaking
The speaker's culture and habits often have much to do with the vocal traits of a speech. Thus, punctuation, articulation and dialect are three very personal aspects of speech delivery.
4. The Role of Nonverbal Communication During Speech Delivery
When delivering a speech, your body movements tell almost as much about your message as your actual speech. Eye contact, body orientation, posture, facial expressions and gestures play into how your audience perceives your message.
5. Speech Rehearsal: Importance and Process
Speech rehearsal is as important as writing the speech itself. It starts with a pre-rehearsal and then follows several steps. By following the process, you will have a winning speech.
6. Q&A Preparation: Answering the Audience's Questions After a Speech
When the audience asks a question, the speaker must be sure that he/she can properly respond with an answer that is correct and that satisfies the inquisitor. There are a few ways the speaker can formulate an answer and deliver it with confidence.
7. Intonation: Definition, Patterns & Examples
In this lesson, we will learn about the two musical meanings of the word 'intonation' with emphasis on the more common usage of the word as it relates to pitch: why it is important and how different musicians accomplish it.
