help! Speech englishWatch
I’m writing a speech for English and have no idea what to do it on any ideas?
-why are certain crimes illegal in some nations but not in others
-differences in childhood in different countries
-obesity crisis (comparing healthier nations with high life expectancy rates like Japan to US and U.K.- similarly high life expectancy but we are very unhealthy, keeping the overweight alive through drugs and not changing life style)
-drugs (there are countries that have legalised all drugs and have seen a massive drop in deaths- drugs are heavily criminalised in the U.K. but we still have lots of drug related deaths and people in prison for supplying/using.. you could talk about the effectiveness of different treatments e.g Abstinence and rehab vs methadone treatment- have a look at the Russell brand documentary about heroin treatment in the U.K.! Well worth a watch on YouTube)
Hope this has given you an idea- mine was based on similar topics and I got a distinction
Also you could research an illness and raise awareness of it. I did a speech on dementia last year for English
If you have something which you can relate a personal story to or invole sympathy with, that’s always useful.
