One of my favorite features of EnglishCentral is the “famous speeches” topic. Famous speeches that really can get students motivated to learn English and also learn some important presentation and public speaking skills. These famous people really model well, the things that make for great public speaking: repetition, control of voice, pausing etc….
Students can easily use these speeches for practice in class. They really work! Here are my own favorites. This one too – is stellar and has a very important message for us all!
Can you recognize these “pieces” of famous speeches on EnglishCentral?
