Public Speaking Description:
In public speaking it is important to focus on your topic, assess the audience, organize your material, simplify and sharpen your language, use humor in your presentation, and deliver your speech with style, confidence and knowledge. Also, a good speech should be lively, interesting and memorable.

Writing

The ability to write and speak correctly and effectively is a prerequisite for doing well in all subjects. I feel that writing, as well as speaking skills, are very important in school, and when seeking a job and trying to succeed in a chosen career. I believe that the ideal resource for everyone who wants to produce excellent writing is that it is clear, concise, and grammatically excellent. The guidelines for excellent writing should include: understanding the parts of speech and elements of a sentence, avoiding the most common grammar and punctuation mistakes, using correct punctuation in every sentence, and writing directly and clearly.
