1. What kinds of people are invited to give a speech?
Usually, the people asked to give a speech have accomplished something extraordinary. For instance, when you graduate from school, the valedictorian of the graduating class is asked to stand up and make a speech. Often, an official that oversees the government or an educational department are also asked to say a few words.
2. When are you a good listener?
Whenever my friends come to me with a problem, I tend to listen to them attentively. They are important to me, so I want to be a shoulder to cry on when they need me. I also try to be a good listener when I am in class. However, sometimes I simply can’t concentrate.
3. Is listening to speeches important to children?
I believe speeches can be important for children. However, the speaker must take into account that children need to have their minds stimulated in order to pay attention. Thus, fast movements and visual aids are imperative. Children must move more than adults too, so speeches must be short and to the point for kids.
4. What is required to be a good public speaker?
I think the most important thing is to have confidence in the topic you are speaking on. Charisma is important too. You can get by without it though if your topic is engaging. Of course, the information you provide must be accurate and inspiring. Otherwise, people might get up and leave while you are speaking, which would be embarrassing.
5. Do Chinese people feel nervous when it comes to giving a speech?
I know people who feel excited when they have to give a speech. Personally, I am a nervous wreck when I have to speak in front of people. I try to avoid it at all costs! I think it all depends on your personality. Thus, my answer has to be both yes and no.
