The art of oratory 23

Dialogue
The speech event should represent a dialogue with the audience. The speaker does not have to speak their monologue all the time; he must answer questions from the audience, listen to their answers, and respond to the behavior of the audience. Any presentation should have the features of a conversation. Your questions to the listeners may be rhetorical, but they can increase the effectiveness of your speech.

Hi Oleks!

I completely agree! Good speeches always involve the audience directly and you should always keep your audience on their toes by asking them questions! Also playing devil's advocate can be an incredibly effective thing to do in a speech. Do you agree?

Excellent, flawless written and spoken English in this extract! Well done yes
