This presentation is delivered in a very clear and engaging way which could be used to illustrate 'the way to speak' to certain publics - especially the first section.
The story she tells is memorable also.
There are subtitles in English to support understanding, or to help learners identify key words or phrases that the teacher might give them beforehand. 'Listen and look out for ... the word for 'star' / 'pregnant' in French etc.
'Ecoutez et identifiez le mot 'star' / 'pregnant' en francais'
Or vice versa - 'fichue' 'accouchement' 'si tu me le permets'

This presentation is delivered in a very clear and engaging way, and is striking.
