Speaking is an important part of our personality . Therefore we should try to improve our speaking .
In School , Home or office we spend much time in speaking .
Because most of us speak much more than we write , we are judged more by our speaking or speech than our writing,
no doubt it is a great and important part of our success.
Following are some of the tips for improving .
1 > PREPARE WELL
A skilled speaker has tremendous advantage over others . You must know what to say . Do your homework . If you are well prepared , the listeners will feel satisfied . This thing will add to your respect and reputation .
2 > CREATE A POSITIVE IMPRESSION
Effective speaking contains many things other than words. The proper atmosphere is the first essential step. The place should be neat , well lighted , well ventilated and free from disturbances . An impression is the sum total of many factors , such as dress ,posture , facial expressions , manners etc. Proper care should be given to all these factors
3 > ORGANIZE LOGICALLY
If you are going to speak about a person , idea or event etc . Think carefully about what is involved . Your audience will understand you best if the ideas are presented in a good order. Put yourself in the position of a person who does not know the subject . Decide what he will need to know first . If you present ideas in an order , your listener will be able to understand easily.
4 > BE INTERESTING
Too many speakers are satisfied merely to present the information . It is the duty of the speaker to make the speech interesting .
Especially important is an interesting opening . You may have noticed that very young children seldom talk together , rather they talk at each other. Avoid this thing.
Guide the people by intelligence , humour , and courtesy .
5 > SPEAK CLEARLY
You must speak very clearly . Learn some ways of improving voice and speech skills. The clearness with which you speak depends greatly upon how you utter words . If your voice is pleasing to others, it has a warm quality and is free from unwanted sounds . Make sure you can be heard easily .
6 > ESTABLISH EYE CONTACT
Eye contact plays a vital role in speech and speaking . Look directly into your audience’s eyes , but do not stare at them . Spread your attention over all selections of the audience equally . With a large group , maintain eye contact with those in first rows .
Eye contact keeps the audience attentive .
7 > PRONOUNCE WORDS CORRECTLY
Good pronunciation means correctly knowing how to utter words. No one can pronounce correctly all the words in English language . There are too many of them , and English spelling is not always a reliable guide to pronunciation . There fore , consult a person or a dictionary to pronounce words .
