Actor Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar Acceptance Speech

Matthew McConaughey pic  I have just watched Matthew McConaughey’s Oscar Acceptance Speech. I was very impresssed  that he could articulate  his feelings and  his belief system  succinctly while holding the viewer’s full attention. It’s a skill few have, and all without cue cards.

This speech is a wonderful example of how entertaining and informative 3 minutes of English language can be. It is not an example of sophisticated or academic English. It is simply an engaging and well-delivered  speech.

If you would like to get some ideas on how to  improve your English speaking: delivery, timing, and intonation,  watch the video:
