ENGLISH
Asked by Rebecca

For english I’m writing a speech to deliver to my classmates about body image. Should I say male and female opposed to guy and girl or is that too formal?

As this is an assignment for class I would suggest using ‘male’ and ‘female’ - these terms are used pretty frequently and should not be considered too formal.

With classmates they will be the same age as you so in this instance you can be a bit informal with your language to fit the target audience and keep them engaged. So boys and girls should be fine, however if you’re talking to a group of teachers or mixed ages you will need to be a bit more formal with they way you address the audience
