When you are practicing your speech, make a mark on the paper to indicate when you should breathe. This will help your speech sound more natural. Sometimes in high-stress situations, like speaking in front of a group, we forget to breathe. These marks on your script will ensure that you don’t get to the end of a long passage and gasp for breath.

What is an Informative Speech?

An informative speech provides information about a specific subject to an audience. The aim of an informative speech is to help your audience understand and to remember the information you are presenting.

This type of speech uses descriptions, demonstrations, vivid detail, and definitions to explain a subject, person, or place. An informative speech makes a complex topic easy to understand.
