Hello. I have speaking exam for school, at monday. I have a really big fear, and I cant get over that thought that I will fail. I cant train with anyone, because I dont have anyone around me. And I dont know what to do

Believing you're going to fail is the worst thing you can do. You need to picture yourself speaking well, remembering all your key points, pretending to be much more confident than you feel -- and stepping down to cries of admiration.

I know that sounds impossible, but it's the only thing that will work. Good luck!

That's the best advice I've heard. :D Thanks for sharing.

Here are some guidelines for the day of the oral exam:

Eat something for breakfast, even in case you don't experience hungry.
Supply yourself a second to think before your answer.
Understand whilst you've stated sufficient. It's vital to recognize whilst to forestall.
Again, up a yes or no answer with proof or reasoning.
In case you do not know a solution proper away, sense free to take time to assume.
In case you are capable of use a blank sheet of paper and a pen or pencil, use the paper to attract the images you created as memory boosters.

Here is what helped me. When I started my first business, I had to do a big pitch competition for investors. I was an engineer that didn't really have to talk so imagine having to talk to a big crowd.

What I did was just ask random people on the street that I would never see again. So maybe you're fearing looking bad in front of people. Well, if you just talk to someone random and you know they'll never see you again, then what do you have to worry about?

That alone helped me a lot.
