How to Improve your communication skills?  Speak English Fluently | Understand Native Speakers


Hey
everybody welcome back this is me Meera and you are watching me on Skillopedia. Well today
we’re going to talk about a very interesting topic which is almost a favorite of all of
you out there. What I want is, I want you guys to up your game when it comes to communication
skills. Well why do we talk about communication skills in general because it’s a mixture of
both spoken language as well as body language. Now what happens is you probably are stuck
in a situation sometimes, it could be a meeting or it could be a presentation, it could be
just bumping into an old friend or it could be talking to a native speaker and you were
supposed to respond in such a situation but you are just lost sometimes and you cannot
gather words, you cannot form sentences properly. Now why does that happen? Why do you think
that happens? And that is because if sometimes lack of practice and in general it’s the coordination
between our body language and our mind game that is our spoken language. Today we are
going to learn to update and to upgrade your communication skills step-by-step, right?
Because that would really help you. So let’s get started guys and we are going to make
sure that by the end of this video you would have had steps, tricks and tips that will
help you to up your game. Well guys let’s get going. Most of the times guys we often
face a situation where there is a communication gap because of which most of the times we
do not understand what the person has just told us, maybe you were on an international
call and you just understood 30 percent of what was told to you or what was spoken. Maybe
you’re just watching an American series and for half of the times you were like okay this
is Greek to me I do not understand this, I don’t know what they are speaking about. Now
why does this happen? This happens because there is a gap. And why is there a gap? Because
we are not used to speaking to native speakers or we are not used to listening to them. Well
you don’t have to worry about that because we can definitely bridge this gap, how? What
you can do is, you can download an app called “Cambly” and on this app you would find
a native speakers from the US, UK and they are there available for you 24 by 7 depending
on what time you are available they are ready to converse with you, talk to you, clear your
doubts, correct you and most importantly they are certified and they will speak with you
in their accent which is natural to them, right? Now what happens when you do this?
You get used to certain things, you get, you start listening more carefully and your understanding
becomes much better and here is an opportunity that you can make use of, because you need
this to bridge that gap. Now I recently went on “Cambly” and I had a conversation with
this particular person his name was Derek and I spoke to him a little bit about small
talks since I really wanted to know as I usually get stuck. Why don’t you take a look at what
happened and listen carefully and you will understand exactly what I’m talking about,
yeah? So let’s check it out. So let’s quickly go to the app which is right here, it might
take a while but, as you can see yes, so there’s a menu over here and we are going to go on
tutors. All the green buttons here suggest that all these tutors are live and ready to
converse with you right now. So let’s take a look at who we are going to call? Let’s
call David over here, I’m just going to call him, say yes, “Hi!” “Hey, hi David.”
“Hi, how are you?” “I’m great, thank you.” “My name is Meera, yes I’m calling
from India.” “Excellent, where in India are you?” “I’m basically in Mumbai.”
“Mumbai, um-hmm.” “Right so I’m, I’m a tutor and a trainer myself.” “Although
I wanted to just check out the app before I suggested to my students because I want
them to use “Cambly” and I want them to practice on “Cambly”. “So I wanted to
ask you something, shall we go ahead?” “Yeah! Go ahead.” “All right, okay so I usually
face a lot of situations where I have to indulge into a lot of small talks.” “Hmm, okay.”
“Right, could you, could you give me any tips how to go about small talks or any phrases
which I can use?” “Just general small talk, I suppose in England probably the, the
biggest source of small talk is the weather, we’re always talking about the weather probably
because it’s, it’s always changing you’ll find complete strangers talk about weather
things like that so that’s a yeah something that’s a common topic for starting conversations.”
“If I have to give you a situation, I’m meeting a colleague of mine after a while
and we just bump into each other in the aisle, so any phrase or any suggestions how I can
go about it or anything that I need to ask him or her?” “I suppose you, yeah you
just start off so how are you hi nice to see you yeah um we sometimes say almost jokingly
off fancy seeing you here if it’s yeah if it’s a place where you almost expect to see
them sometimes yeah okay depends I suppose what yeah if it’s just, just an acquaintance
or somebody you know.” “All right so I think that’s about it for today I will be
back very soon with a topic that I get to speak to you about but for now that’s all
from Me” “Okay, okay very nice to meet you.” “You have a great day ahead though.”
“And you too.” “Yeah thank you.” “Appreciate it, bye-bye.” So guys how was it? I’m sure
that it was pretty insightful because he shared so many things, he shared phrases with us,
he shared why it is important to talk to a native speaker and that is exactly what I
wanted you to know. Well now this app doesn’t come for free but we got in touch with them
and you can use a 7-day trial for just $18. Well I’m sure that if you like it you will
continue it but you must try it because it is very important in order to understand native
speakers and speak more fluently and be, become better at your communications game, right?
So make sure that you make use of this app, oh the link will be in the description box
below. So go ahead and take a look at it and see how you find it. Now what else is important?
It is important that you’re able to convey your message in a way that people understand
you and your message. Can you do that if you’re super, super nervous or anxious? No you must
learn to relax and calm down before you begin, before you start. Your conversation and your
response really depends on the state of your mind. So just imagine this situation, right?
When you are learning how to swim or when you were baby and you were learning how to
swim, most people get extremely nervous and in the water and end up, you know with water
in their mouth and nose which makes them even much more nervous and afraid, but have you
ever seen babies or have you ever seen experienced people the way they are calm and relax they
literally just float on water. Now we need to learn this and apply it similarly when
we speak in English to native speakers to avoid things like these, like really fast
speech where nobody understands anything or something that is really slow where you get
even more conscious. Quick relaxation exercise coming right up for you, well just follow
me with this one, okay? We’re going to take a deep breath, we’re going to exhale. Now
I want you to relax your shoulders and your face, so if you’re really tense just relax
and take this time to gather your thoughts and choose a natural speed for yourself make
sure that it isn’t too slow or you’re not running, it’s not too fast this helps in getting
rid of the butterflies in your tummy, right? And this helps you think about the right sentences,
the right word, the right, you know the phrases, right? This will certainly help you calm down
and this definitely creates a positive impression on others. Plus a good communicator is always
someone who has calm and confident at the same time. Now I will ask you to do something,
I will ask you to be as fearless as a baby. Now you’re thinking, why is Meera making us
look like babies when we’re looking at talking to adults, right? Why a baby? That is because
these beautiful creatures are born fearless they make mistakes and that is how they learn
you cannot learn any language or any act any skill without making mistakes guys. Now most
of the times we go blank when fear pops in of making mistakes, right? And that is, that
is because most of our sentences, that is a reason why most of our sentences go wrong
and our message is not conveyed properly it’s understood. So be ready that you will make
mistakes instead of getting nervous about it, about making a mistakes, you would be
prepared to get corrected by others which is absolutely fine you know? You can always
say it again if you were wrong and you can rectify it just the way you have been doing
all your life when it comes to your family members. Well things such as, “Oh, I meant
to say…” And then you correct your own sentence that is the key of improving your
communication skills by simply letting yourself make mistakes and improvising, correcting
yourself and this will automatically increase your confidence because you’re not fearful
anymore about it, right? That is why you will not hesitate to speak in front of others and
this will really help you. Do you want to know my favorite method, yeah? That’s imitating.
Yes you heard me, I usually watch a lot of talk show, talk shows and hosts and I literally
try to copy their action their style sometimes I copy a whole speech if I want to of course
in front of the mirror. Come on now we all have once imagined ourselves winning an Oscar
or Emmy and we imagine ourselves giving a grand speech on the grand stage, right? Well
that’s a great way to actually learn to better your communication skills, don’t you think
so? Instead of just academically studying, this will change your overall personality
and that is exactly what we are aiming for, right? So I suggest go ahead and shadow, imitate
someone just to improve, right? Not to continue acting like them but slowly you will find
your comfortable style, you’re comfortable communication style with the help of these
talk show hosts or comedians, right? They are, they are doing great, and you can always
make sure that you catch on them. Don’t these steps really sound handy and simple and easy?
Well they are. Now make sure you apply these maybe one at a time, one, one step in a week
and then the other in the next week and come back and tell me in the comment section about
your experience, right? Well that’s all for the day. I will see you guys very soon until
then make sure that you’re smiling spread a lot of love this is me Meera signing off
of the day guys, ciao.

    In order to become good communicator any language you need to read as much as you can reading helps to enhance your vocabulary

    When you are reading its easy to understand the meaning of author because you can see the words written on paper

    Best communication and pronunciation improvement software is speech to text software you can actually speak and software automatically recognise your speech and convert into text so if you pronounce or communicate effectively this means that you are communicating and pronouncing good

    So I am using speech notes software

    Best software 2 improve the communication and pronunciation

    So first one is the reading

    Second one by speaking using speech to text software

    Third one is the listening as much as you can

    So improve your communication skills after 1 to 2 monthsb by reading your will able to explain anything in your own words because you can understand how author is communicating with the reader he knows much better than ordinary person so learn communication skill by reading

    Is everyone aware that people who evolved like scientists state "isnt debatable" but is "scientific fact" arent going to be able to communicate like portrayed in the movies or on tv and news medias? and alot of people would have the issue some more severe than others. after all prehistoric humans couldn't speak n modern day humans evolved from them. 😝mao
