1-Describe a scenario in which a person’s nonverbal language says something quite different from the same person’s verbal language.
2- Public speaking
Public speaking is different from conversation. Explain differences and similarities of these two types of speaking by addressing an issue from your personal life or from current events.
3- Audience analysis
Explain the importance of audience demographics. Describe why audience analysis is important and how it can affect or change your presentation. How might the audience demographics change with a change in geographic location–be specific, providing details to support your ideas.
In doing so, be sure to address how non-verbal communication differs from verbal communication. Describe how the speaker’s message differs depending on the following elements of delivery: voice, volume, pitch, rate, pauses, variety, pronunciation, articulation, and dialect.
