What Is Lecturette in SSB?
Lecturette is small talk which judges your capability to express yourself in front of the group. In this task GTO has a set of Lecturette cards with him, each card has four Topics written on it. Each one of you has to pick up a card and move to some distance and prepare on any 1 topic among the four topics for three minutes and then come in front of the group and deliver the talk for 3 minutes.
