I have just started taking a Public Speaking class and by the end of the tenth week I would like to become a more comfortable speaker. I would also like to learn how to really engage my audience when I am informing them about things that may not pertain to them. My last goal would be that I want to be more precise and clear with what I am saying so that my audience can really understand what I am trying to say.


I believe that if I can accomplish my goals by the end of the quarter then my future will really benefit. If I can learn how to find ways of making my audience interested with what I’m telling them then it will boost my confidence and decrease my nerves. With the new skills I want to achieve I know that they will help me become better at talking to important people like employers and professors. I think that if I can be more precise with my words I can really get my message across without having to explain what I mean multiple times. If I work hard and attain these objectives I think I have a chance of really opening my audience’s eyes.


I plan on achieving my goals by practicing my speeches a lot and in front of people before I actually give my speech in class. I will also try to be as well informed on my topics in order to feel more confident. I want to try different techniques to try to spark my audience’s interest in my speech. I will try to ask friends and my professor for feedback so that I can improve my speech arrangement and word choices.
