Public speaking refers to the practice of addressing a public gathering, usually in a formal capacity. 

Speaking in public can be extremely challenging, particularly for a young child. Even the most seasoned of speakers may feel anxious just before delivering a speech. The fear of public speaking, scientifically called glossophobia, is extremely widespread in the population.
