When planning your talk think about the stages we discussed in class.
1. Amir Introduces himself and the subject of his talk to his audience;
2. Amir's main points are about a) Football - Iran is not doing so well in Asia b) in Wrestling, however, the country is #1 or #2 in the world;
3. Amir explains why Iran is so good in Wrestling - a) they have a long history doing the sport b) it is a very spiritual activity for Iranians, he says;
4. Amir closes his talk by inviting his audience to talk about their national sports and to ask him questions.
Remember to FIND and PRINT some pictures from the internet / or find a short video on YouTube to show the class - it is good to have something to show the class as you talk.
