Today, each of you presented a film (& his specific film genre) for about one minute.

Here are a few reminders to help you improve your speeches.


Remember to :
   - speak slowly : think of breathing  ;o)
   - mind your pronunciation, articulate words
   - speak up (loud)
   - avoid reading your notes

                 WHOM YOU SPEAK TO...
                 Remember to :
                    - anticipate : explain difficult words or points
think of rehearsing the key-steps (if any)
                    - possibly ask listeners if they need further
                      explanations / details

                                        WHAT YOU DEAL WITH...
                                        ask yourselves the following
                                        questions :
                   - Have you properly analysed your
                                              topic ?
                    - Can everybody understand what
                                              you said ?
                     - Is your 'message' clear ?

Here is an interview of George Clooney

click on "Rolling Stone" magazine  logo
[ The interview was made 5 years ago by Gavin Edwards ]
Actually, you don't have to read the complete interview ! I just intend to show you the introduction to the interview, and the kind of questions the actor might be asked. Thus you can only read the questions  - of course, if you are interested in reading the whole interview... well, you can do it !! :o)

Visual learners will benefit from this mind map most...
