Reflection While studying speeches under the title Power and Language in Part 1, I was amazed by how powerful they can get if the right techniques are used. In my Further Oral Activity, I explored the use of persuasive language in speeches. Specifically, I analyzed how authorities can use persuasive language in their speeches in order to inspire students. The reason why I chose this topic is because while we were studying Power and Language, the speeches we watched in class made me remember the speech of John Keating from the movie Dead Poets Society. I was extremely impressed by his speech, and I realized that he too used persuasive language in order to affect his students.
Of course, it was very good for speaking class. The writer and most of other students practiced actively in speaking instead of keeping silent as did during this times. This situation much influenced by speaking ability. Agreeing with other students when the interview is a student named Fitri said that the debate could improve speaking ability because it requires students to express their
According to Howard Peter Guber, “Language is a more recent technology. Your body language, your eyes, your energy will come through to your audience before you even start speaking.” One of the critical points in this quote is the body language. From the moment people present a lecture their hands, eyes and facial expressions begin to move in accordance with the response they speak and react. Besides, speaking in public requires a self-assured person who has a qualification to enlighten the audience via influencing their mentalities to amaze. Speaking in front of the community nourishes people who want to develop their self-confidence feel relaxed while speaking and perceiving a subject certainly.
Some of this was evident in my interview and so next time I will have to try and ensure that the client is finish speaking or ask if they were finish speaking so has to show that I was actively listen. The client demonstrate interest not only by my verbal responses, but also by her own non-verbal expressions such as leaning forward, nodding, maintaining appropriate eye contact, and your facial expressions. All of these considerations make for effective communication in you’re an interview
The story introduced the idea of self-confidence as being a skill that can be learned. Throughout the speech, he told stories that were either based off his own experience or were relevant to the information he was presenting, referred to the previous speaker’s speeches, incorporated analogies, and added humor to retain the audience’s attention. All these terms are techniques that proficient speakers use to gain and then hold their audience’s attention. Dr. Ivan Joseph presented the topic with his opening story and then motivated the audience to listen by offering tips on how to build one’s own self confidence and how to help others’ self-confidence grow. During the speech, Dr. Joseph established credibility by sharing real life stories that he had experienced and by
Charismatic communicator is defined as a person's ability to formally and informally communicate with members. It also says that effective leaders, are great communicators. I would agree with this because I believe that I am good at reading situations and peoples body language, therefore, I know how to talk to people in certain situations. I like to use analogies to help people understand what I'm talking about and connect with people by talking about their interests. At the University of Oklahoma, I could use this strength to communicate with my media, entertainment, and marketing team while also relaying our ideas to the athletic director and athletic coaches.
During the first session we did a lot of exercises, which made me learn the following; - Standing in front of people while maintaining an eye contact with the audience makes the they feels that you are talking to them. Familiarizing with the environment by standing firm in front of the audience contribute to my confidence. Sharing everyone thoughts with regards to presentation skills, helps me to understand that most of us do not like presenting, but what I like most is seeing one of my fellow student admitting
She listened to their stories of how the meeting with the return volunteers went. They also pointed out what works and not and raised some recommendations to make the meeting with the Return Volunteers (RV) efficiently and more accessible. According to Ronald Riggio, Ph.D (Riggio, 2006), a charismatic leader is “essentially very skilled communicators, individuals who are both verbally eloquent, but also able to communicate to followers on a deep, emotional level” I thought of Ms. Maloy as fitting this description because she uses her charm and eloquence in interacting with her staff and volunteers. She

Third, the promoting of body gestures in the SLG classes, given the fact that sometimes SLG learners are shy to perform the gestures need for a sign, and it is important to consider that facial and body movement are part of the grammar in the visual language. It is important to promote body language activities and to be aware the SLG learns that the signers are animated not because they are bubbly and energetic, but because sign language uses face and body movements as part of its grammar. Finally, the use authentic language videos, images, stories, oral expositions, and speaking tasks will encourage them to use the SLG with communicative purposes, and the use of a number of techniques make the vocabulary more memorable for the SLG learners (Barcroft, 2008). In addition, It is important to highlight that teachers should design activities that motivated the students. As motivated students learn faster and
