We teach children how to write, but not how to SPEAK.

Very few people know how to improve their speech.

How to become more articulate:

1. Record yourself speaking. Find one thing you'd like to stop doing.

2. Listen to great speakers. Find one thing you'd like to start doing.

When you listen to yourself, find things to remove.

When you listen to others, find things to add.

Then, study rhetoric.

Highly recommend this book.
