Memorize your speech just before going to bed in a easy way you can, taking the point into consideration that you have to do the same in the morning in front of a mirror as an exam and do the same in the morning just after awaking.
Practice it and don’t focus on memorizing it you can write it down on flash cards and look down on them to remind you about the main points in you speech. From there you can normally remember the rest and don’t just practices reading it you should look at yourself in the memoir to look at how you’re standing, your hand movements and the speed that you say it. Then when you have passed yourself exam test it in front of others a close friend, parent, or sibling.
read parts of it at a time not all at once. after you read one part try to say what ever it was with out looking at the paper that you were reading it off of. i hope this helps you out a lot. this is what helps me when i need to memorize a speech or a report or answers to a test. don't try to memorize some thing with in 2 days work on memorizing some thing like a week or 2 before you have to present the speech and don't try to do this right before you are going to bed do this during the day.
read it over and over again and then recite it in front of your parents without your note cards to test if you have it memorized if not, rehearse over and over again and then retest yourself. once you have it right, practice it even more until you are sick and tired of it.
Try one of these options! 1. I like to read things out loud a few times to get the rhythm and feel for things. 2. If you read out loud in front of a mirror that can help! 3. Walk around your house or outside while reading aloud!
keep reading it over and over and every time u read it, try to memorize little parts (like a sentence or a paragraph) and eventually you will memorize it all! and the more u practice it, the less nervous you will be when you present it because you will feel more confident and prepared! :D
do something funny while practice, for example fart really loud in your dad's drinking glass when he's not looking and then you'll remember like "what was i going to say" then u remember the funny thing like " oh yea hahahah i farted in my dads drinking glass so i was going to saaaaaay struck".
write each line 20 times then write out the whole thing stanza by stanza 20 lines and say it over and over before you write it trust me its a lot i definitely know but it's a great way to remember it i used it in french and still remember it.
Read it about 5 times, then before you go to bed, read it constantly, for about 20 minutes. When in bed, say whatever you can memorize. When you go to sleep, your brain will absorb the information better, and it will be stuck in your head for a while, of course you won't know the exact words, depending on the length of it, but you should know the whole basic structure. Hope this helps!
Is it that important that you memorize it word for word? I would just go with an outline that includes key words that you want to use and wing the rest. But you need to pratice. Everyone who is good at something is not good at it because they were born that way but because they practiced it. That is how they make it LOOK easy.
If you memorize a speech, it will sound mechanical when you give it. If you must memorize it word-for-word, begin at the end, repeat the final phrase from memory until you get it right consistently, then practice the final two phrases, etc. That way, when you actually give the speech, you progress towards the parts you know best.
read it out loud three times, then say it once, without looking. Irreiche's also right. When I have to memorize speeches, I do both. Also, try to make a game out of it, that way it makes it fun, and you learn it easier.
Write the main points,one to a card, on numbered index cards.Keep the pack of cards with you and whenever you have a free minute review them Having someone listen to your speech and give you suggestions helps immensely
