Take this Mini-Quiz to check your understanding of the lesson material.

1. How can an entertaining speech be valuable to an audience?

It depends on how much they pay for the ticket

It is of no real use to an audience

It can relieve tension and even help to improve their health

2. What personal satisfaction can you get from being valuable?

If you wear expensive clothes, you feel valuable

Being in demand can be gratifying

Many speakers don't care what the audience thinks

Become arrogant

Get the audience to want more
