“you should write and record a 3-5 minute speech in honor of a person of your choosing who has had a positive impact on your life and whom you would like to celebrate.  You will be evaluated on your use of language and rhetorical style learned in this course to deliver a speech full of vivid imagery and that elicits positive emotions in your audience. You will also be delivered on your ability to show appropriate emotion and enthusiasm in your delivery. You should strive for an extemporaneous, prepared-but-conversational style of delivery”.

as you read above my teacher’s instructions, I wanna get a toast to my best friend at his wedding. and I want it to be done today like in two or three hours. it is a short speech.
