9 ways to become a good talker

Talking is a voluntary action that deals with the use of speech for expressing feelings, thoughts and ideas. It is a very important tool for communication even in the midst of modern innovations and inventions, the use of talking can never be overemphasized. This is why we have to strive to polish our manner of articulation so that we can become a very good talker in the world today. For this reason, I have made a research of 9 ways I think one can become a good talker.

1) Be a Good Reader

To become a good talker, first and foremost you have to become a good reader, when you read, you will be start becoming interested in words, and you will be able to understand the structure of words. You will have your own collection of words and form phrases or sentences with them, this phrases and sentences, will become part of you that you will be able to use them subconsciously. Sometime ago, I was helping a kid with an essay assignment, and I’ve been helping this kid for some time. On this particular occasion, the kid realized that I’ve used this particular phrase ‘summoned the courage’ on a different occasion before. That’s what happens when you read a lot.

If you are not good with reading, you can listen to audio’s or watch movies, a lot of books this days have been converted into audios. I just prefer reading most time but movies and audios will also help.

2) Body Language

You have to be able to understand body language and also express words with them. For example have you ever seen a man proposing to his spouse with both hands in his pockets? Picture yourself like an actor trying to woo his audience, the mastery of body language makes it easier for people to understand you and pay some attention to what you are telling them, oftentimes it tells your audience how passionate you are about what you are telling them.

3) Using Pause and Breaks

Using pause and breaks when talking helps you to choose you words carefully and reduces your chances of committing a grammatical error. It will also give you some time to recover if you are running short of words, as well as enables you anticipate what your listener wants to hear, whether you are talking in a private conversation or talking in public. For example, if you have witnessed a Court scene and observed the conversation between the Judge, the Lawyer, and the plaintiff, you will have a glimpse of what I’m talking about.

4) Knowing your Onion

This involves being familiar with the subject area that you will be talking about. It will be much easier for a Football announcer to be able to announce a football game even if he did not practice before that game. But give that same Football announcer a task of talking to the new military recruit on personal development, and then he will need to make research to be acquainted with the new subject area.

5) Be Versatile

This entails going outside your own field where you are well acquainted with and study other cultures, beliefs, norms and social environments. Being versatile will help you fit into most conversations, discussions and arguments. It will improve your social status as people will always want your opinion on instant matters.

6) Master your voice

I used to have this horrible loud voice that you can almost hear me ten seats away in church on Sundays or when I talk over the phone sometimes, the receiver thinks I’m shouting and this can be very embarrassing. The manner at which you use your voice can affect your manner of speech, and the message you are passing across. Try to use a fitting volume, not just for your professional talk but also for your casual talk too. Or would you like your folks to call you like they were calling an animal. For this reason, a lot of people go for voice training but I just ask people to tell me how the tempo of my voice sounds when I suspect that I’m not sounding pleasant. I did this till I developed a consciousness for my voice.

8) Stick to the Subject Matter

To be a good talker, you must learn to concentrate, so that you do not aimlessly deviate from the subject at hand except if you are consciously navigating, to link what you are talking about to something elsewhere, with the intention of coming back. Keep yourself in check all the time, it gives you a professional outlook.

9) Have a Role Model

You may find yourself a role model if you please; it only makes your work easier and gives you a personality. I looked up to a lot of people while growing up and learnt the way they talk, not just the way they talk but other good qualities as well. Some of these people were entertainers, politicians and even my class teacher. My favorite talker was Al Pacino, Denzel Washington and Mr. Cheeks of the Lost Boys Crew. You will never know what else you might pick up.

Bonus

10) Practice! Practice!! Practice!!!

Practice, talk to yourself in your quite time, use those words and phrases that you have stored up somewhere in your head, improvise if you have to and little by little you will get better.

I hope this helps to achieve all there is to becoming a good talker and help you in attracting the numerous opportunities that comes with it, improve your relationships, business connections and social recognitions. It’s amazing what you will be able to do in the world today as a good talker.
