Impromptu speaking is a speech and debate individual event that involves a five- to eight-minute speech with a characteristically short preparation time of one to seven minutes.


 Practice impromptu speech


  1. On your own:


  • Choose a different random topic every day and speak out loud about it. What you say does not have to be perfect, or eloquent, or enlightening.
  • The important thing is to speak out loud. I do this when I am stuck in traffic.
  • I pick a random topic and then I just speak on it for a minute or so. Don’t over do it. Just once a day


  1. Speak in a group:


  • Practicing in front of a group and getting professional feedback is the best way to learn impromptu speaking.
  • I know that this option is harder than practicing on your own for many reasons.
  • Not finding the right group, not finding the time are just a few. However, it is not impossible.
  • You can try out different speaking classes or join a Toastmasters group in your area until you find one that resonates with you. It will be worth it.
