How to Memorize a Speech

Confident, clear, and concise public speaking is both a skill and an art. In life, we all have moments where we're tasked with delivering a speech, and we know that we're not going to get a second chance. The stakes are high, so it's important to make a great first impression and deliver your speech right.

One of the best things you can do to increase your confidence is to know your speech well. This allows you to focus on other things, such as your vocal pacing and maintaining eye contact.

This course will teach you how to memorize a speech in the right way, and gives you an online memorization game to practice in.

Practice memorizing a speech in an online exercise that can be accessed directly through your web browser.

First, you'll enter the main and sub-points of your speech into the exercise, both of which you'll be tested on how much you can remember.

After this step, you'll be asked to enter your entire speech. Whole paragraphs will be removed from it - try to remember as much as you can from the removed sections.
