The science of stage fright (and how to overcome it) - Mikael Cho

This week we've watched and talked a lot about what makes a good speech. In the next few weeks you will be writing and presenting your own speech.

Have you thought about what your topic will be?

Have you ever had stage fright?

How are you going to overcome it?


  1. Hi Stephanie
    Yes I have thought about my topic and I have come up with a few ideas.
    I have had stage fright before but I appear outwardly calm but inside I'm shaking.
    I don't get stage fright as bad as I used to because I know what to do to calm myself down, I breath in my nose for four, hold my breath for two and breathe out my mouth for six. It really helps.

    From Helen

  2. Dear Stephanie,
    Yes I have given my topic some thinking and got a few ideas. But I'm most likely gonna do the definition of insanity. Yes I have experienced stage fright before and I overcame it by thinking: What do we think when someone's performing? They're cheering us on. That's what people think when we perform.
