Ideas for great speeches


Some things are more interesting than others

In the speech class I took last year there were a few that were especially memorable to me.

They were speeches that either could be seen from two different angles or were about unusual things.

The different types of speeches we gave were informative, persuasive, and business. I found the persuasive ones to be most interesting because, of course, they employed a lot of emotion and intriguing facts to hook the audience. Plus it involved more brainpower; you had to engage yourself as a listener.
