Three of the Best

This month I’m bringing you three of the most popular articles on Write-Out-Loud.

I hope you find at least one or two ideas or suggestions to help or inspire you in some way.

1. Diction Exercises

Do you get feedback that people sometimes struggle to understand what you’re saying? Yes? Sometimes? Then these are for you.

Your speech content may be great and you may look fantastic but unless your audience can UNDERSTAND what you're saying, your message is lost.

These diction exercises will help you learn how to speak clearly. What’s more you can listen to me saying a couple of them, including the toughest one on the page. And most important of all, they’re fun!

Visit Diction Exercises to start playing.

2. 100+ Speech Topics

Do you get overwhelmed by the sheer volume of possibilities when you need to choose a speech topic?

Or maybe you teach and need to pull together topic suggestions to give your students suitable ideas to choose from?

Whether you need a topic for yourself, your students or a friend, this article will help. You’ll find speech topic ideas arranged by age group, speech type and theme.

Find out why one of my most visited pages is 100+ speech topics .

3. How is Your Teaching Voice?

It’s that time of year! We’re heading back to school.

Do you teach?

If you do then you’ll want to know why and how your voice directly influences what happens in your classroom. Students learn more easily, with less behavioral disruption, when a teacher understands and knows how to use their voice effectively.
