Another example of a speech text but it’s the persuasive one. I hope you find it helpful and again, it ain’t the perfect one since I wrote it back when I was in my second semester of my bachelor program 🙂
Good evening ladies and gentlemen.
Thank you very much for the time given to me for allowing me to present my speech about the wonderful batik and making it as national attribute.
As you have to feel, we are proud of being Indonesian that have special character of various culture. There are many ways to preserve our culture, one of them is by wearing batik. We are proud of having this batik to be adopted as one of the world cultural heritages. By wearing batik unconsciously we get some benefits. First, we preserve our culture. Young people today indirectly have helped Indonesia to preserve the great cultural aspect of this. Besides, we also unite Indonesians by wearing batik. We live in differences from Sabang to Merauke, from Miangas to Rote; but as can be seen, Javanese may wear Sundanese batik. Even though we have different culture, we are one in Indonesia.
Why don’t we wear batik if it has many eases of it? Batik is easy to access or buy. It spreads everywhere in city side in almost every store. The price is not quite expensive as it was. Batik also has many functions which are not only for clothes but also for bags, table clothes, and wallets. Batik is no longer for mere old people. It also presents in various models and so attractive and interesting. It can be worn by everyone – child as well as adult. It also can be worn in many occasions, not only formal but also informal event. As an example, in our faculty, we decided Thursday as Batik Day, so students will increase their interest in wearing batik.
Thus, let’s wear our batik proudly because there are many advantages of wearing it. We are proud of being Indonesian, we are proud of having batik.
This is the end of my speech, thanks for your attention, nice to speak in front of you.
