    Speech making round 1 每组一个代表,不能同前!抽取题目。2分钟即兴演讲使用以上句型。


What is a successful speech:

    1. No speech should last more than 20 minutes

    2. Focus on one topic

    3. Choose your words carefully so they’re comprehensible the first time

    4. A lot of words sound alike, for instance, eunuch(太监) and unique. A speech that describes a

    unique responsibility is very different form a speech that describes a eunuch responsibility! 5. Humor is vital, it helps to relax

    6. Don’t forget to say thanks

    Speech making round 3: Academy awards speech



     I’m very grateful to receive this award for “best Actress/Actor”. I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate this great honor. There’re many people I’d like to thank. First of all, I want to thank my parents for bringing me into this world. I also want to express my gratitude to all of my teachers over the years, but especially to my acting teacher, Jim Jones, who taught me everything I know. I want to thank my husband/wife for his understanding and kindness. And finally, I want to express my appreciation to all of my friends for their support, especially to Martin Miller, for being there when I needed him. This award means a great deal to me. Words can’t express how

    honored I feel at this moment. I will remember this night for the rest of my life! Thank you very much.
