hello, everyone, today is your first speech delivery session, how do you feel ? butterflies in your stomach? are you excited? if you are excited, you are not alone. i know some of you have had kind of experience doing public speaking in English before taking this course, while others may be more liking in experience giving public speech, it doesn't matter which situation you are in , what metters is that today is a moment , today is an opportunities for us all together to break ice, by getting eveyone here stand up , and come here stand in front of the class, and speaker give your very first speech. and your first speech is very important, on the road to building your confidence and it is going to be foundation on which you bulit for your later speech of this term. so before i invite someone to speak today, i wou;d clarify what you do. there are two main tasks to accomplish today. task one, you are going to give two-minute self intrduction speech which is different from that self introduction you often make whenever needed, most of the time, simple by providing the basic information about yourself. and today the self introduction speech si kind of special, because you are required to use an object to as a starting point to explain some aspects of your persinality , bacrground , belief, or asperations. there are other side, your responsibiliity which is peer evaluation, each student to give peer evaluation for five other students, for this purpose, we have divided the class into five groups, with each group comprising 5 students also. this is going to be very convient, because we have arranged people in the same group around the same desk , so you watch your group member go up and stand in front of class, and speaker and evaluate the speaker immediately after words, and you watch the speaker go back their seats just near you , so the impression is reinforced, so you won't get wrong person. now, everyone here has got five copies of evaluation form in your hands, and you will be given 30 seconds after each speech to complete the form , whhich will be turned in after this class session. this is what we are going to do, how do we do it? what are the guidelines? in fact, what we are talking about the guidline you have already used, when preapring your speech, and still find it is necessay to review important one, and beside, some important guidline concern your delivery and presentation which have today. here they are, the first guidline, the self introduction speech is like any speech, that should contain three parts, namely, introduction, body and conclusion. and above all. it is the title, that clearly define your central message, and instantly establish a kind of relationship between object and yourself. second guildline, since we have required you to use an object to provide insights into yourself, so what we expect is creative speech, the more creative speech, the more successful it is going to be. the third guidline, it is impossible to cover everything in your life within 2 minutes , so a better approch will be to focus on one or two events , or at most three main points. next, observing time limits is alway an esstntial aspect of any speechmaking. so i want to make sure eveyone here is concious of time limits. 2 minutes. and we have the time keeper, ,,,, to help you observe the time limit. number 5, be a good listener, since giving peer evaluation is an improtnat task today and to give responsible feedbacks you need in the first place to be a good listener. make sure not to fill out the form during the speech, but after the speech, and you will be give 30 seconds after each speech to complete the form. .one last note, everybody here is require to turn in two copies of carefully appropriate , printed manuscript of your speech.
