Ⅲ.课文篇

At some time in your career you will probably have to make a speech if front of your colleagues or strangers. Keep in mind that most people feel nervous when they have to give a speech.

在你的事业生涯中,有时你可能不得不在同事或生人面前发表演讲。要记住多数人在发表演讲时都会感到紧张。

A good way to reduce your nervousness is to do plenty of research before the speech and to write down some of the main ideas that you will talk about.

减轻紧张的一个好的方法就是在发表演讲前做大量的调研工作,并把你要讲的中心写下来。

If you write the speech out word-for-word and then just read it, you will sound very boring. A better way is to write the main ideas and some of the key words and phrases and then improvise.

如果你把讲演稿逐字逐句地写下来,然后照本宣科,你的演讲听起来会很无聊。好的方法是把主要观点和一些要点词和短语写下来,然后即兴发挥。

You can make your speech more interesting using visual aids like overhead slides and Powerpoint. They will help you remember what you should say and reinforce your words so that people remember your points more clearly.

你可以用幻灯片和Powerpoint等视觉效果来使演讲更有趣。它们可以帮助你记起应该说什么,让你的话更有说服力,这样人们就会更清楚地记住你的观点。

If you get really nervous before giving a speech, try to imagine everyone in the room wearing no clothes. Although it sounds funny, you will find that it really does work!

如果你在发表演讲前确实感到紧张,试着想象一下屋子里的每个人都没穿衣服。尽管听起来有些可笑,你会发现这个方法确实很有效。
