The Types of Speech
According to Purpose

What are the basic types of speeches?
Informative Speech
This speech serves to provide interesting
and useful information to your audience.
Some examples of this are:
- A teacher telling students about earthquakes
- A student talking about her research
- A travelogue about the Tower of London
- A computer programmer speaking about new software

Some examples of this are:
- How to use Photoshop
- How to make lasagna
- How to write a speech
- How to… just about anything

Demonstrative Speech
This has many similarities with an informative speech.
A demonstrative speech also teaches you something.
The main difference lies in including a demonstration
of how to do the thing you’re teaching.
Some examples of this are:
- Promoting a movie or a TV show
- Improve your health through better eating
- Television violence is negatively influencing our children
- Become a volunteer and change the world

Persuasive Speech
This works to convince people to change in some way:
the way they think, the way they do something,
or to start doing something that they are not currently doing.
Some examples of this are:
Entertaining Speech
A speaker of an entertaining speech provides pleasure
and enjoyment that make the audience laugh or identify
with anecdotal information.
- Excuses for any occasion
- Explaining cricket to an American
- How to go to movies with your own snacks
- Things you wouldn’t know without the Internet

The four basic types of speeches are used: to inform, to instruct, to entertain, and to persuade. But, these are not mutually exclusive of one another. For instance, you may try to inform in an entertaining style, and you might inform the audience and try to persuade them to act on the information.
