Public Speaking :(

Okay so we have to do these speeches in english for a thing at my school. We also have to memorize them. The problem is I shake sooo badly when I go up there. And no one else acts like there nervous so i feel like the only one. Everything in my body shakes even my voice. We have to practice it every day this week :( any tips? and please dont say the picture in there underwear thing because that doesn't work for me.

oh trust me alot of people go through that but usually you feel it more than anyone can feel it.



i did it too but it does get a lil easier as it goes. it always helped me if i just made basic notes and tried to make things up as i went along so it was more like i was talking to a friend instead of memorizing everything

Ohh my gosh..The same happens to me :(

I don't really think people notice the shakiness on you as if you think they would.

Just calm down and don't think about it untill you are actually presenting.Because if you scare yourself that just makes it awful.



You may think those people "aren't nervous" but seriously..Mostly everyones nervous when speaking outloud.



-Dang! I had to memorize this ceasar speech for my english class last week!..I forgot what i memorized bc I let the nerves get the best of me.But if you forget just act like it's okay.

Hi miss,

I also despise public speaking, but have done it on numerous occasions as part of my past employment. There was this one time that I had to speak infront of 300 strangers, all new university students and I was sooo scared! But, I had one friend in the audience and thank goodness for that. He told me that whenever I my nerves would get up to just look at him, and hold his eyes, as it was a focus for me. I also had something in my hand that I kept turning round and round in my palm as I spoke. Both these things helped as they were kind of distractions in a way. Ask one of your friends to be your support, and take a rock, or an eraser up tehre with you.

Best of luck!

omg my friend has the same problem, but probably waaaay worse than you, because she started stuttering on like every 2nd word, but anyways, just picture yourself somewhere else and dont look at everyone, if your doing it in like a classroom then just look at the back of the room like in my classroom we have drawings we did in health of naked people with all the naasty private crap drawn on them, so i just looked at those, its like in a staring contest where you look at there forehead not there eyes, and also it helps not to think about it before you acctually do it because that makes you even more nervous and almost everyone gets nervous they just have different ays of showing it :) hope this helps lol

You have to be confident in yourself.... That's the only thing that helps... It's helping if you look somewhere else, but it's the best thing if you stand out there and tell yourself that you're gonna tell them that, and they will believe you... You have to change their minds, to tell them that the thing that you're saying is the right thing and everything like that..... ;) When you practice don't think about the fact that out there people will be listening every word and that stuff.... If you're sure in what you're talking about everyone will understand and memorize it, and if it's something important they'll sure listen to you.....Maybe everyone thinks that they're the nervous ones, and maybe you don't look scared at all...... :) (It happened to me, but I had to sing... Imagine the fact that your voice is shaking while you're singing... That's awful, but I did everything that I told you and it worked).... Good luck.... ;
