1)开始时对听众的称呼语 最常用的是 ladies and gentlemen，也可根据不同情况，选用 fellow students, distinguished guests, mr chairman, honorable judges(评委)等等。
5)结尾 结尾要简洁，不要拉拉扯扯，说个没完。特别是不要受汉语影响，说些类似“准备不足，请谅解”，“请批评指正”这样的废话。最普通的结尾就是：thank you very much for your attention。
ladies and gentlemen , good afternoon! i'm very glad to stand here and give you a short speech.
today my topic is “youth”。 i hope you will like it , and found the importance in your youth so that more cherish it.
first i want to ask you some questions:
1、 do you know what is youth?
2、 how do you master your youth?
youth is not a time of life, it is a state of mind ; it is not rosy cheeks , red lips and supple knees, it is a matter of the emotions : it is the freshne; it is the freshneof the deep springs of life .
youth means a temperamental predominance of courage over timidity of the appetite , for adventure over the love of ease.
this often exists in a man of 60 more than a boy of 20 .
nobody grows old merely by a number of years .
we grow old by deserting our ideals.
years wrinkle the skin , but to give up enthusiasm wrinkles the soul .
worry , fear , self –distrust bows the heart and turns the spirit back to dust .
whether 60 of 16 , there is in every human being 's heart the lure of wonders, the unfailing childlike appetite of what's next and the joy of the game of living .
in the center of your heart and my heart there's a wirelestation : so long as it receives messages of beauty , hope ,cheer, courage and power from men and from the infinite, so long as you are young .
when the aerials are down , and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old ,even at 20 , but as long as your aerials are up ,to catch waves of optimism , there is hope you may die young at 80.
I am very glad to make a speech here ! Today I'd like to talk something about English.
I love English.
English language is now used everywhere in the world.
It has become the most common language on Internet and for international trade.
Learning English makes me confident and brings me great pleasure.
When I was seven, my mother sent me to an English school.
At there, I played games and sang English songs with other kids .
Then I discovered the beauty of the language, and began my colorful dream in the English world.
Everyday, I read English following the tapes.
Sometimes, I watch English cartoons.
On the weekend, I often go to the English corner.
By talking with different people there, I have made more and more friends as well as improved my oral English.
I hope I can travel around the world someday.
I want to go to America to visit Washington Monument, because the president Washington is my idol.
Of course, I want to go to London too, because England is where English language developed.
If I can ride my bike in Cambridge university, I will be very happy.
I hope I can speak English with everyone in the world.
I'll introduce China to them, such as the Great Wall, the Forbidden City and Anshan.
I know, Rome was not built in a day.
I believe that after continuous hard study, one day I can speak English very well.
If you want to be loved, you should learn to love and be lovable.
So I believe as I love English everyday , it will love me too.
