English LI: To practise reading my speech aloud

Keep going with your speech if you're not yet ready but if you are:

Practise reading your speech aloud to yourself. When you are ready, perform this to your family.


  • Use eye contact as you read so take time to look up at your audience
  • Speak slowly and carefully but make sure the pace is comfortable
  • Put on your best voice to make your words clear as you speak
  • Think about the volume of your voice. Also does your voice go up and down, especially if you ask questions? This is called inflections.
  • Have you organised your topic so it is easy to follow?
