How to become a better speaker?
I have heard many questions about how to be a better speaker, such as:
– How can we train to speak?
– How to talk about a subject with complete dominance?
– How to control our primary stress?
– How to present in front of the audience?
In this article, we teach you how to train to be a better speaker?
We have repeated a thousand times in our other articles that presentation needs practice. It’s not enough to study about it, but we have to work on its techniques and methods practically.
How to learn to be a better speaker?
There are four practices I want to teach.
1- Practice in front of a mirror to become a better speaker
Wear suits just the same as you will go to the seminar. Then stand in front of a mirror. Start talking while you have eye contact with yourself. It will help us improve our self-confidence and body language. Speaking in front of a mirror needs courage, it’s not that easy!
2- Record an audio file
You can record your voice. Use your chatting App to do so. It’s a tool to help you improve. Then listen to your voice. When you listen to your speech, you will find out where you make mistakes and work on those parts.
3- Record a video file
Wear suits and formal clothes and imagine you are going up on the stage to speak in front of a large amount of audience. Give your cellphone to one of your family members or friends to record it for you.
Three minutes talking is enough each time. This practice not only let you enhance your rhetoric skills and body language but also allows you to go back and see your video and find out where you make mistakes more. Then you can work on those parts more than the others.
Then you can see your video files will get better and better every week.
4- Use every opportunity and the crowd
Try to use every opportunity you get and talk in each gathering of your family, friends, and colleagues. It’s a pretty convenient excuse to put yourself in the situation even if it’s for a few minutes.
It’ll take time, and it needs the practice to accept that you are not afraid of the crowd and you are self-confident enough.
I hope you will be a better speaker by using these tips.
