ESB Entry Level Award in Speech (Entry 3)

Talk about something you have achieved, made, grown or learned about for 3 minutes. Use visual aids to support your talk. Candidates might talk about: how they gained a certificate; a trophy they have won, making or growing something; the planets, the Tudors. Displays and demonstration may be integrated into the talk. Demonstration, if used, must be integrated into the 3 minutes allocated. Brief, key word notes may be used – the examiner may ask to see these.

Prepare 6-12 pages containing dialogue from a favourite book for the assessor to choose an extract to be read aloud. Place the extract in the context of the story. The extract should last around 2 minutes. 


Answer questions after any of your sections. Listen responsively, ask questions and join in with discussion.
