When you are asked to speak in front of the class, your classmates will not just focus on what you say. They will also watch how you speak, so be conscious not just of what you will say but also of how you are going to say it.

This second part of the module on speaking starts off with learning how to construct tag questions. You know how to construct tag questions, don’t you? There you have it. A tag question has just been constructed for you!

Along with tag question construction, the intonation patterns used for tag questions will also be discussed. After these concepts follows the construction of the parts of a speech—the introduction, body and conclusion.

Remember what was just said about your classmates watching you as you speak? This module will also provide you tips in gaining and projecting confidence in speaking and on becoming better listeners as well. In line with this, the appropriate verbal and non-verbal responses that must be observed by an audience when somebody is speaking are also discussed.

The last part of this module deals with the use of clear, vivid, and memorable language in writing speeches. After all, the kind of language a speaker uses is of key importance in driving his/her message across.
