Public Speaking in English

Speeches


The topic of a prepared speech is selected freely by every speaker according to her or his personal interests. The form of a prepared speech is usually determined by the objectives of a speech project in the training manual the speaker has chosen to work from. (Let us show you some Toastmasters manuals when you visit us as a guest.)
