Telling a story in English

Thank you guys for your support. Many people asked me where to start to improve their communication. My advice is tell some story to your friends.

A useful skill in English is to be able to tell a story or an anecdote. Anecdotes are short stories about something that happened to you or to someone you know.

How to start

Traditional stories often start with the phrase “Once upon a time”. However, if you are going to tell your story after someone else has already spoken, you can say something like:

How To Speed Read

How to read fast

You acquire skills, which help you to read fast over time as practice reading. The problem is many people fail to see the skills they learn through reading.

Improve Your Communication Skills, Style & Speech

Communication includes diplomacy, style, pitch, vocabulary & tone. Sometimes you have to watch how you communicate with people. Without being diplomatic, you may not be an effective communicator. Diplomacy means skill in managing negotiations, handling people etc… so that there is little or no ill will; have tact & skill in dealing with people.

When you learn how to communicate with people it determines how they will or will not respond to you.
