Samuel Scott - SEO and Internet marketing speaker used to raise his view on the Art of Public Speaking “At any serious conference, hard skills and knowledge among the speakers are absolutely necessary first and foremost. But soft skills and the ability to amaze an audience are a very close second.”
As far as soft skills in public speaking is in concern, there has been an encouragement for students to improve some relevant skills, such as critical thinking, mind-map designing, problem-solving skill, credibility, background knowledge, and so on. As usual, one of the most common problems among students is that after getting the speaking topic, it is common for them to brainstorm a very general outline which is not appropriate to the certain context. Actually, the ideas are often taken from Google search or a very common belief. Therefore, the speech cannot be strong enough to attract or persuade the audience since they can not find their own problems analyzed, clarified and solved in a satisfying way. During the 2 recent school years, the alarming results of Public speaking final results have left a significant consideration on the change of teaching method to help improve this speaking skill as its effects are believed to be taken account to the future when students will be in the interview for job application.
The research focuses on the analysis of the current problems among students studying Public Speaking, and the suggestion of using the Internet to improve both soft skills and background knowledge which are believed to be simultaneously beneficial to reading, writing and listening skills. In order to keep the students on track of self-improvement, the support of the university library, the Faculty of foreign languages and especially teachers who are directly side by side on their progress is highly appreciated.Xem tiếp...
