    3 words per second is a good starting estimate for comprehensible spoken word

    I'm not sure on an exact word count for a 5-6 minute speech. Your best bet is to read it while looking into a mirror, as if you are presenting your speech to your class. Time yourself and if you come up short, add a bit more. Remember to speak calmly and slowly so your speech will take up more time.

    About a page & a half double space, I don't know the approximate word count.
