  • - [Narrator] If you're learning English,

  • and you have to give a speech or a presentation,

  • you've come to the right place.

  • Today at FluentU, we are revealing five secrets

  • for public speaking in English

  • for second language learners.

  • With each tip, we'll show you a couple of examples

  • from legends in the public speaking world.

  • So you can watch their habits and imitate them.

  • Let's get started.

  • Our first tip is to learn key phrases for speeches.

  • Key phrases are like the foundation of a house.

  • You'll need to build on them,

  • but key phrases will give you a great place to begin.

  • - Special bow to the class of.

  • - [Narrator] Here are some phrases for different stages

  • of a presentation as shown by Oprah Winfrey in 2013,

  • in a Harvard commencement speech.

  • - And to you, members of the Harvard class of 2013!

  • Hello.

  • (audience applauding)

  • I thank you for allowing me to be a part of the conclusion

  • of this chapter of your lives,

  • and the commencement of your next chapter.

  • My one hope today is, is to,

  • is that I can be a source of some inspiration.

  • I'm going to address my remarks

  • to anybody who has ever felt inferior or felt disadvantaged,

  • felt screwed by life.

  • This is a speech for the quad.

  • Predicts that you will at some point fall.

  • And when you do, I want you to know this,

  • remember this, there is no such thing as failure.

  • Congratulations, class of 2013,

  • congratulations to your family and friends.

  • Good luck, and thank you for listening.

  • (audience applauding)

  • - We're not driving, it's one of their first dates.

  • - [Narrator] Next, master the art of storytelling.

  • Storytelling is a universal language.

  • And here's a hint, telling a story while public speaking

  • is a lot easier than trying to recite facts or statistics.

  • A story has three parts.

  • Let's take a look at this example.

  • - A lot of you won't remember this,

  • but when I ran for the presidency '08,

  • the truth is, is that not a lot of people gave me a chance.

  • So I'm about to make my pitch.

  • I'm trying to muster myself up.

  • I let him make the best of this.

  • I'm going to do it quick.

  • And then I'm going to get out of here.

  • And suddenly I hear this voice from the back, just shout,

  • "Fired up!"

  • (audience shouts)

  • And everybody in the room says, "Fired up!"

  • And I said, ready to go.

  • And then I hear the voice say, "Ready to go!"

  • And everybody in the room says, "Ready to go!"

  • And I don't know what's going on.

  • Ready to go, ready to go.

  • But the interesting thing is, after a while,

  • I'm starting to get kind of fired up.

  • (audience laughing)

  • I'm not, I'm starting to,

  • (audience cheering)

  • I'm starting to feel like I'm ready to go.

  • And all those, all those negative thoughts,

  • and all those bad memories start kind of drifting away.

  • - [Narrator] A hugely important part of speaking

  • is body language.

  • Unfortunately, this can be

  • one of the trickiest ideas to master

  • because body language changes from culture to culture.

  • FluentU is a great tool to learn about body language

  • with authentic English videos.

  • FluentU provides real world videos,

  • including speeches and lectures, as well as movie trailers,

  • YouTube clips, music videos, and more,

  • which have been transformed

  • and gesture when giving public speeches

  • without worrying that you will not understand

  • the speech itself.

  • You'll also learn a lot of vocabulary

  • with FluentU's interactive subtitles.

  • And if you want to find a specific word

  • for your speech or presentation,

  • you can use FluentU's video dictionary

  • and engage the audience.

  • use this technique a lot.

  • Some ideas of where you can pause are,

  • - My messages that we'll be watching you.

  • (audience laughing and applauding)

  • - Faculty, parents, friends, dignified guests,

  • graduating class of 2014,

  • (audience cheering)

  • coming out of the corn to be with us today.
