Easy Understand English

Speak English Confidentaly - Speak louder! 

A loud voice not only helps people to hear the words you’re saying, it also sends a message of confidence.

Sometimes when you learn a new language, you worry about making mistakes, so your voice is not confident. Don’t worry so much; it’s expected to make mistakes! Speak up! Your conversation partners will be able to hear you better, which is a requirement for understanding.

How can you speak louder without yelling or screaming? Let me tell you some tips I learned in an acting class in college that can help you with everyday communication - and will help if you are ever find yourself on a stage!

  1. Use your diaphragm, the muscle below your ribcage, to breathe in deeply and force more air out from your lungs when you speak. More air = louder.
  2. Look to the farthest point in the room, and imagine you are speaking to someone there. Make
    your voice travel to the farthest place in the room, or even better, make your voice travel to the
    room next door.
  3. Open your mouth wider and keep your head up. Your mouth is like a megaphone, the thing police and cheerleaders like to use to make sure everyone hears them, so it needs to open wide so sound can be released.
  4. Use your tongue, lips and teeth to enunciate, or clearly pronounce, each sound you are saying.
  5. Make stressed syllables and stressed words even louder than the others.
Of course, you have to find a good volume – not too loud, not too quiet. Use your social intelligence to check other peoples’ reactions when you talk.

Try these speaking tips and your success with communication in English should increase. And as an added benefit, you will probably seem more confident and approachable. When you speak on the telephone or on a web-conference like Skype your volume is especially important

Extra Tip: It is a great idea to try recording yourself and listening to your actual voice and volume as others hear you. Use your computer or cell phone - it’s easy!
