The main points of the student’s speech were based on historical findings, scientific research and articles such as Carolyn Dilly and Susan Bell who were the authors of the chili pepper book on why chili pepper is dietary essential hence spreading across the globe.

The speech was perfect and I cannot say that it needs any more improvement because he offered everything from history to research to the future chili can offer
