Students’ Speech –01

“My Feelings about Spoken & Phonetics Course”
How are you? ……..
Well, thank you very much.
This is Muhammad Jewel (tell your full name). I am here with you to share my deep-rooted feelings concealed in my heart for many days. But, dear friends, I am not a good speaker you know. I am really sorry for my ignorance. But I will try to say something about the selected topic of today’s speech: “My feelings about the Spoken & Phonetics Course at Mentors’”.
“If you want to change the world, at first change yourself”—is an unforgettable quote of the great scientist Einstein. These couple of words is true like daylight. It is needless to say that Spoken & Phonetics is such a course that will bring unparalleled change in you. It will change your art of speaking, your manners, and your styles of pronunciation. You will be an extraordinary person. After all, you will be smarter than before.

Let me tell you one BIG truth. Before attending this course, I felt nervousness and shyness while speaking before the audience. Now, alhamdulillah, it’s gone and gone forever. I have become more confident than before. People like my accent and pronunciation. They like to listen to my English. Now I can understand British or American English well. I enjoy listening to/watching BBC. English movies have been just my best fun. While I am on the net, I enjoy voice chatting.  You will not just believe, I’m not previous me.
Dear friends, our course coordinator told us about the mission and vision of the course. If the whole country needs an English course, what do you think; can it be any other course other than THIS? The answer is a BIG NO. 
Friends, I will not take much time. Please take the responsibility of the course on your strong shoulder. Convey the message of this course at Mentors’ to everybody. Tell everyone “If you want to get the real taste of English, be a member of SPOKEN & PHONETICS FAMILY.”

That’s all for today. Thank you once again. Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullah.
