These English-major students were asked to deliver an impromptu speech in 行政大樓6F. They were very nervous, but their performances were IMPRESSIVE!

2. You will have 2 MINUTES to deliver your speech. Poor time-controlling will cause a serious score deduction.
3. The main points of an effective impromptu speech:
a. Start with an attention-getter.
b. State a specific subject or point of view.
c. Present reasons, logic, and data.
d. Conclude with a restatement of viewpoint.
