Homework for Wednesday


Your homework for this Wednesday is to prepare a song in English. You will sing it in class, in one of our anxiety-management exercises. We will also improvise dialogs in class that day, as an exercise in mastering dramatization of characters.

As for next Monday, October 28 (the same day as your exam), you should hand in a one-page writeup of What’s the Worst That Could Happen if I Screw Up My Speech? The goal of writing up your answer to this question is simply to come up with such a ridiculous picture of what failure or making a mistake would cause, that you cannot take your own anxiety and nervousness so seriously when you are in a public speaking situation: you’ll be able to laugh it off and manage your anxiety.
