Answer:C! You want to start every speech with something that will grab the audience’s attention. Most people don’t find speeches entertaining, so surprise them. Add a bit of flare and personality to your speech. Start with a joke or quote to make your speech memorable. E &P

3. What is the best numberof main points to have in aspeech?A. TwoB. ThreeC. However many I dang well want!D. Five
Answer:B! Dr. Phil taught us early on in the course that a good speech should usually have three main points. It’s just enough to give people an adequate amount of information, but not too much to be grueling.
4.What do you need torepeat in your conclusion?A. Your three main pointsB. Your three main points, your name, andyour topicC. You don’t repeat anything; you wouldn’twant people thinking you’re stutteringD. Say “Thank you!” You don’t want peoplethinking you’re rude
Answer:B! At the end of your speech you want to repeat your three main points, your name, and your topic. It’s a great way of reiterating what you’ve gone over, so it’s fresh on everyone’s minds.
5. What should you alwaysprovide while speaking?A. An exampleB. Your Social Security numberC. Your life storyD. Why you took the course
Answer:A! Always,always give an example. It’s a great way of breaking down what you’re saying, adding a personal touch/personality, and taking up some time.
