I listened to Ronald Reagan’s speech, “Tear down This Wall”. He was a good speaker with a confident tone. He moved his head a lot; there was no talking with the hands as a lot of people do. His voice is strong and he delivers a strong point in which the crowd responded to very positively. I read the speech and listened to it, and I believe a written version of this message would not be as effective because you don’t get the body language and tone from the speech unless you are watching it. He wasn’t very expressive but stern and to the point, you could feel his words and see in his face that he cared about this.

Unformatted text preview: The speech was directed to Mikhail Gorbachev; who had a lot of power over his country. He was a communist leader who probably didn’t want to give any of his power up. I don’t know how much of President Reagan’s speech influenced the take down of the wall but I am sure it did have a part in it along with the United State’s presence there.
