When you get nervous you will start to read fast. Just think as the people at not there in front of you. If you don't get over being nervous when talking you will never be good at speech.

Oh I know, generally when I get nervous I forget things, so I start reading from note cards, or I will just start talking super fast. This is my first public speaking class ever and the teacher makes sure you do EVERYTHING right, as in standing straight, arms to your side, eye contact at least 95% of the time. We also have to have "visual aids" so I just got a bunch of pictures of starving africans and am going to place it as a small slide show.

The first speech I gave in this class I didn't even go off the cards after the first 30-40 seconds, but it was the easiest speech ever. We had to bring in some items that describe our lives and talk about it, not hard to just pull stuff out of your *** with a speech like that. But this one is longer, and has a lot of information, statistics, and some quotes.

So I can't just bull**** stuff. and I don't have it memorized for crap.

Well get a general overview about the subject and then what I would do( if you don't already have this in your speech) to put your input and what you think about what is happenings in the modern day and age, but you will have to memorize statistics and numbers which is hard as hell. I took a speech class in 8th grade and currently am in 9th grade. You probably no motley about the rules and stuff but the biggest thing again is to not get nervous

What do you know about speeches? You're 14.

I chose to do my speech on world hunger and why it shouldn't be a problem but still is. I have graphics and statistics and whatnot, but I got to write the speech tonight after class. But I'm scared I'm going to **** up when I get in front of everyone. I gave another speech for my midterm and it was horrible. I got super nervous and the only time I spoke fluently was when I wasn't going off my speech/note cards, and was talking off the top of my head (if I try to memorize a speech, the second I get nervous I will forget it).

So what steps should I take in order to be more confident/comfortable? I mean I can talk to people fine, but standing in front of them and giving a speech while I have to stand perfectly straight, maintain eye contact, and not read from the cards, I get ****ed.

Anyone else have this problem?
I got drunk before one of my speeches. My teacher gave me a 95 and said she knew. lawl.

If you're allowed visual aids, put some of your statistics on graphs and use those for aids. Also, print out a small copy of your slides(if there is info on them) and use those as note cards. I've done that before, though that was in highschool. Also, don't think of it as a speech. Consider it a presentation.

And as has been said a few times, XANAX. Too much and you won't care about your presentation, too little and you may as well not have taken it.

You should have taken the high road and insulted his 7th grade English skills considering he said "common seance" whatever that means.
