Example text

The solution is to • split the sentence up into very short chunks (12 words maximum) that are easy for you to say and easy for the audience to understand • use more verbs (the original contains only four verbs but around 20 nouns) • use the active form and personal pronouns 22 2 Writing Out Your Speech in English The revised version contains a series of short phrases. Short phrases do not mean that you express yourself in a simplistic way. You can give exactly the same information and keep all the technical terms that you need.

So you need to keep swapping sides. Make sure you make eye contact with everyone including those at the back. If you don’t give certain sections of the audience regular eye contact, they will start to lose interest. You can practice this by yourself at home. Stand at one end of the biggest room of your house. Imagine that the items of furniture (chairs, tables, desks, shelves, even windows) in various parts of the room are members of the audience. Practice talking to each item. Spend no more than three seconds on each item of furniture, then move on to another item.

The only way that you can show genuine enthusiasm is to feel it. This means that you need to identify areas of your research (or even of your life as a researcher, or about your country or town) which you truly find special, which you think the audience will find interesting, and which you can talk about with passion. You can practice smiling in front of a mirror, and if you smiling doesn’t come naturally to you then you can even attend smiling courses in the USA and the UK! But if you find it difficult to smile, don’t worry, you can replace a smile with a passionate delivery and the occasional forceful hand gesture.
