Bush II / Discurso en el Capitolio / 21 septiembre de 2001 «Señor presidente, miembros del Congreso, queridos estadounidenses: En el transcurso normal de los acontecimientos, los presidentes vienen a esta cámara a informar sobre el estado de la unión. Hoy no hace falta tal informe: ya ha sido enviado por el pueblo estadounidense. Lo hemos visto en el coraje de los pasajeros que doblegaron a los terroristas para salvar a otros en tierra. Pasajeros como ese hombre excepcional llamado Todd Beamer. Por favor, ayúdenme a dar la bienvenida esta noche a su esposa, Lisa Beamer. Hemos visto el estado de la unión en la resistencia de los socorristas más allá del agotamiento. Mis queridos compatriotas. Esta noche estamos en un país consciente del peligro y llamado a defender la libertad. Agradezco al Congreso por su liderazgo en un momento tan importante. Y en representación del pueblo estadounidense, agradezco al mundo por el respaldo brindado. No olvidaremos los momentos de silencio y los días de luto en Australia y Africa y América Latina.

write-argumentative-speech-6020239 Everyone has an opinion. One way to express your opinion and get others to agree with it is to present an argumentative speech. In this kind of presentation, the speaker takes a stand on an issue and provides information demonstrating why his position is better than the opposing one. If you follow the standard format for a speech of this type, you can convince listeners of the validity of your position and lead others to agree with you. Select a topic. Decide which position you want to argue. Study the topic. Write an attention-getting introduction. Do not assume that your listeners understand the topic. State your position clearly and quickly, backing it up with supporting information that you gleaned during your research. Conclude your speech with a restatement of the main points.

The science of stage fright (and how to overcome it) - Mikael Cho Prinsessebryllupet Ari Behn holdt sitt livs viktigste tale til Mãrtha. Her er talen gjengitt i sin helhet.

Jeg takker dere for fra første stund å ha møtt meg med tillit og en vennlighet som har grepet meg dypt. Å forelske seg i landets prinsesse er nå en ting.

Great Speeches Analysed: First Analysis - Obama's 2004 DNC Cpeech This is the first entry in this site looking at great speeches in history, in movies, in business – wherever they can be found. Suggest some speeches, and if they’re great I’ll analyse them. The purpose of this blog is to try and give you some insight into why speeches work and how you can craft a speech that will win the argument, win the business, or maybe even win the heart of a loved one. In each case I’ll give some history to place the speech into context (either into the context of the speaker’s life or the context of surrounding historical events), some general comments and an in-depth review of the speech. I will reproduce the speech according to how it was delivered wherever I can source the video or audio of the speech being delivered, and I use a single line space where the speaker took a small pause and a double line space where there was a larger, more definite pause or a break in the speech to move to a new section.

'Who is the queen?' And other ways to get talking to strangers | Life and style I sit down next to a man at a train station. He’s staring at his phone and doesn’t notice me taking the seat next to him on the platform. I take a deep breath. “Hi,” I say to him. He recoils in surprise. A few years ago, I found a box of badges at my local cafe in London. For me, talking to strangers is something you do as a last resort: lost in an unfamiliar neighbourhood, dead phone, broken leg, typhoon – and only if these things happen all at once. I know I’m not the only one who feels this way. Intrigued, I actually kept one of those I Talk To Strangers badges, though. Around that time, on a flight from New York, I found myself in a three-person row with two men. This was baffling to me. I decided to talk to as many strangers as I could for a month. On day one, I walk purposefully up to a woman at the bus stop at 8am. Deflated, I decide to go for some low-hanging fruit. “I’ve worked here for three years,” he replies. It is then that I grasp the main hurdle: my fear of strangers. No.

The Other Pair This ELT lesson plan is designed around a short film by Sarah Zorik titled The Other Pair and the themes of altruism and empathy.

Lift Off “Education then, beyond all other devices of human origin,Is a great equalizer of the conditions of men.” – Horace Mann, 1848.At the time of his remarks I couldn’t read — couldn’t write.Any attempt to do so, punishable by death.For generations we have known of knowledge’s infinite power.Yet somehow, we’ve never questioned the keeper of the keys —The guardians of information. Unfortunately, I’ve seen more dividing and conqueringIn this order of operations — a heinous miscalculation of reality.For some, the only difference between a classroom and a plantation is time.How many times must we be made to feel like quotas —Like tokens in coined phrases? —“Diversity. Inclusion”There are days I feel like one, like only —A lonely blossom in a briar patch of broken promises.But I’ve always been a thorn in the side of injustice. Disruptive. Talkative. As educators, rather than raising your voicesOver the rustling of our chains,Take them off. I was in the 7th grade, when Ms.
