    Not feeling well havent revised much!
    what is the best way to start these speeches out?
    And how should I structure them?
    And techniques... Ending it...
    Im currently on a bad grade in english and i have to prove my teacher wrong.
    Start off with an attention grabbing, unexpected scream for attention! Like: 'Migrants should not come to the UK!' Or 'There was blood all over the floor..' Or even something as simple as a quote from a famous person. Try to avoid the boring, overused openings like 'hello, today I am going to...'

    Structure it with a brief introduction summarising your opinion and then break the main body up into as many paragraphs as you want making sure that each has its own topic sentence and overall theme. This makes it very easy to follow and sustains attention. If it's a speech begin every new paragraph with something funny or interesting to avoid your speech sounding like it runs on and on and on...

    End the speech with something memory, do a quick summary of your main point and then end on something shocking like a statistic or even a joke, something which will stick in the listeners head!!
    Hope this helped a wee bit! Gimme a shout if you have any problems
