Communicating with people is an art. Good communicators focus at using simple language and avoid jargons to make their speech interesting. They analyze their audience and develop their speech accordingly. Choose your words wisely. Effective communicators use an expanded vocabulary with more educated groups and a more basic vocabulary with less-educated groups. Along with words intonations too play a major role in making your speech effective. What tone are you using? Are you speaking in a monotonous way or do you change the tone of your voice accordingly? This helps people to understand the speech well and draws attention. Remember effective communication involves not just your words. Choosing the right gestures, maintaining eye contact with your audience and a smiling face can work wonders to your presentation. Effective communication skills enhance one’s ability to connect with people from all walks of life, at work and in social circles.
