How to write your own speech


Before you begin to write your speech, you need to develop an OUTLINE with your main ideas ranked in the order you're going to present them.


  If you haven't done one, complete this 4 step sample speech outline which you can download in the file below. It will make the writing process much easier.

You also need to know WHO you're speaking to, the PURPOSE of the speech and HOW long you're speaking for

Basic Speech Construction:

Your speech will have three parts:

  1. an opening or introduction
  2. the body where you present your main ideas
  3. an ending.


Split your time allowance so that you spend approximately 70% on the body and 15% each on the introduction and ending.

How to write a speech

1. Write your main ideas out incorporating (einbeziehen) your examples and research.
Link them together making sure each flows in a smooth, logical progression (ansteigende Bedeutung der Aussagen/Botschaften).

2. Write your ending, summarizing your main ideas briefly and end with a call for action

3. Write your introduction considering the 'hook' you're going to use to get your listeners listening

An often quoted saying to explain the process is:
'Tell them what you're going to tell them' (Introduction), Tell them (Body of your speech - the main ideas plus examples) and Tell them what you told them, (The ending)

TEST before presenting. Read aloud several times to check the flow of material, the suitability (Angemessenheit) of language and the timing.

  The third part of the speech found its resonance and  echo in society, arts and the music scene as you might see in the following video:


It was a creed written into the founding documents
that declared the destiny of a nation: Yes, we can.
It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail
towards freedom through the darkest of nights: Yes, we can.
It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores
and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness:
Yes, we can.
It was the call of workers who organized,
women who reached for the ballot,
a president who chose the moon as our new frontier,
and a king who took us to the mountaintop
and pointed the way to the promised land:
Yes, we can, to justice and equality.
Yes, we can, to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes, we can heal this nation.
Yes, we can repair this world.
Yes, we can.
