The first response that comes in my mind after watching the video is that the speaker is keen to know about cancer and therefore is using different search engines to find out about cancer. The large number of the audience shows that the speech was inspiring and attention-grabbing. The speech is about how a teenager found out a hopeful test for cancer with help of internet. The reaction of the audience shows that they find the speech motivating and interesting.In the starting of the speech Jack Andraka is telling us about his uncle who lost his life because of pancreatic cancer. He moves on by telling us how with the help of internet he found out that most cases of cancers are detected late mainly because the tests used for the detection of cancer are very expensive.The language that is used by the speaker in his speech is quite clear and easy to understand. His tone of speech is moderate and he is quite fluent in his speech. One of the best things about his speech is that he gave different references from the internet which attracted the people of our generation since the present generation uses internet to get knowledge about almost everything.The speaker tries to communicate with the audience in an effective manner by making use of gestures, eye contact and movements of his hands which shows that the speaker has good communication skills. Eye contact during the speech also conveys interest and inspires the audience to be interested in the speech. It is said that our body language matters more than our words during a speech. The speaker had an appropriate open posture which is important for a good speech.One of the way. Analysis of TED Talks.
