Greetings to all those suffering to knowledge. In this article we will see how a properly delivered, beautiful speech helps to find a common language with any interlocutor. The ability to express thoughts and convey meaning is a useful skill. However, to achieve the skill, you need to work hard. Beautiful speech – the fruit of quality work on themselves. How to learn to speak and express your thoughts beautifully is a burning question, and today we will analyze it in detail.
What does it mean to speak nicely and confidently
By listening to the speaker, a person can immediately determine whether it is a beautiful speech or not. This conclusion is based on subjective judgments and generally accepted “silent” rules. Words are intangible. They cannot be defined by sight, and therefore the interlocutor relies solely on his or her hearing.
Let us understand what it means to speak beautifully.
The speaker feels confident. He understands the subject of the conversation and can answer questions. Consequently, he does not need time to learn the necessary information from his memory. There are no pauses, long silences, crumpled answers. Thoughts are expressed clearly and competently.
Speech is delivered correctly. Removed all distractions: pauses, words-parasites, jumping from topic to topic. Pure speech helps to convey information and express your thoughts so that you can be understood correctly.
Neutral or friendly tone. The ability to gain trust by intonation alone is a true art. It is difficult to give, but gives enormous confidence. It is pleasant to speak with a beautiful voice, and the interlocutor does not want to stop talking.
It is difficult to change the already formed opinion about yourself. Therefore, it is worth forming positive connections at once. Charisma and correct speech work for that.
Is it possible to learn to speak gracefully and is it necessary
There is no skill that cannot be mastered. The main thing is to show interest and perseverance. But you can’t learn a skill if you’re not interested. Engaged in unloved business – a tedious and difficult task.
So you can learn to speak beautifully. But that’s why? Beautiful speech not only helps to establish contact with other people. Awareness that a person has accepted his own flaw and corrected it, gives him a tide of motivation and spirituality.
Perfecting oneself step by step, one cannot be disappointed. Achieving goals is a key reason to develop even more.
Also beautiful speech helps to feel confident in any field. There are no more problems, for example, to say beautiful compliments to a girl or a good joke. About how to be charming and learn to joke quickly, we recently told.
3 tips on how to develop speech
Realizing the need to improve the quality of speech, we need to move to action. The right and comprehensive approach is important.
Improve the diction
The first point in transformation is to start speaking more clearly. It doesn’t matter how smart a person is if the interlocutor can’t understand the speech. That the conversation takes place without stuttering and queries, without improving diction nowhere.
Step 1. Before you start talking, develop a mouth cavity. The following exercises are suitable for this:
Open your mouth and start to move your jaw actively on all 4 sides;
stretch your tongue by moving it from cheek to cheek;
Speak vowels and consonants loudly and focus on those that cause difficulties and problems;
develop lip muscles by folding them into a tube.
Step 2: When the muscles are warmed up, you can move on to active work. Speech development and diction in adults are underestimated by many. You should not worry if you can’t do it the first time. Regularity is important here. The first short conversations should be short and clear. Gradually, the pace increases, and one go can last up to 5-10 minutes.
Examples of short conversations:
“Senya Sanya is lucky to have Sonya in a sled. Sleds in braces! Senya’s feet, Sanya’s side, Sonya’s forehead. Everybody in the snowdrift, clap!”
“I’m a verticultup. I can scarify. I can scarify.”
“Bankers are rebranded, they are not rebranded.”
Could you talk and not break your tongue? Now toasts and congratulations are easy!
Step 3. There are poems in addition to short conversations. They help develop diction. Also, when reading a poem aloud and standing in front of a mirror, a person sees his mime. This helps to improve the appearance of the face when speaking. To remove the fear of the stage and communication with others.
Correctly staging the diction helps not to talk. Avoid problems when thoughts ran forward and the mouth has not yet been able to voice the previous sentence.
To speak well and eloquently, you need to replenish your vocabulary. There is an opinion that the number of words that a person knows affects the beauty of speech. It is true, but with a reservation. It is necessary not only to know words, but also to understand their meaning. There’s nothing worse than saying a word in the wrong context. Especially among knowledgeable people. To speak coherently, you have to saturate your brain with the right words.
It’s another misconception that classics are the best source of vocabulary. However, it is not. Classical books use words that modern people often do not use due to their obsolescence.
The main rule is that it helps to increase the vocabulary:
Read books that arouse interest.
And which books to read, the soul should already choose. It makes no sense to force yourself to read boring, uninteresting works. They do not cause the desire to return to the reading. Therefore, there will be no benefit or effect.
But the book has been chosen, started and arouses interest. How do you get the most out of it?
Pay attention not to individual words, but to word combinations. Scientists have proved that the memorability of words in a pair is higher than in single memorization.
Stress or write down words and phrases of interest. In order not to break away from the reading process, highlight after 5-10 minutes and find the meanings of all unfamiliar words.
You need to read all the time for the result to be visible. How to develop a habit of daily reading is described in detail in the article “How to make yourself read books every day”.
Remove parasitic words from your speech…
In order not to interrupt the speech and keep it homogeneous, you need to take out the extra garbage. There’s no abnormal vocabulary or parasitic words in a well-defined speech.
The peculiarity of getting rid of such problems is that a person lives with them for a long time. He joins them and doesn’t notice anymore. So in order to get rid of parasitic words, you need to calculate them.
How to determine the parasitic words…
One chooses a free topic in which one is well versed. Next, a little discussion is recorded on the recorder. It should be a spontaneous flow of thoughts, do not think in advance. It should be recorded for 3-5 minutes.
The received monologue is turned on and listened to. Usually a person does not attach importance to the way his speech sounds. In the same case, he consciously begins to evaluate his words. Very quickly comes the understanding of what words are used frequently, not in the place or to fill the silence. These are the words that are parasitic.
This way, he can quickly identify problem areas and begin to solve the problem.
Why are words like parasites used? Most often they appear because of uncertainty and poor vocabulary. Therefore, the brain needs to be filled with knowledge.
It also requires work on self-esteem and confidence. Try to abstract yourself from what people and interlocutors might think. Reduce the pace of speech and think about every sentence. Initially, it will seem unpleasant to listen to the person you are talking to. Over time, however, it will become clear that this kind of speech is more attractive than the one filled with unnecessary words.
How do you get rid of the parasitic words
Using simple home methods helps to improve speech quality.
Speak words slowly, clearly and clearly. Get rid of the habit of saturating the conversation with unnecessary words just to make it seem friendly.
