Hi Magician, the words "das Sprechen" and "die Rede" or "die Ansprache" have different meanings in german.

das Sprechen -> the speech -> the saying of words if you want die Rede / die Ansprache -> the speech / the address someone is talking in front of other people

And why not "Sprechen"?

The right word would be "die Ansprache war zu lang"
