ESB Entry Level Award in Speech (Entry 2)

Talk about an object, model, picture or piece of equipment for 3 minutes explaining its importance to you. Candidates should explain their personal interest in the subject. They might choose to talk about: something they have seen, made or assembled, a collection they are developing, the kit or equipment for a sport or game they play. Practise speaking with minimal notes or prepared text, but aim for a natural and spontaneous style of delivery without notes.


Speak by heart a poem you enjoy. Say the title and the poet’s name first and give a detailed reason for your choice. The poem should last around 2 minutes.


Prepare 4-5 pages containing dialogue from a favourite book for the assessor to choose an extract to be read aloud. Introduce it saying which character you would like to meet. The passage should last around 2 minutes.
