Some people are gifted in the area of verbal processing while others need to know and practice the ways to become more verbally articulate.

Some speak so eloquently and with ease while others struggle to find the right words to say.

I find that some of those people who do struggle are gifted in the area of writing and explaining thoughts beautifully on paper.

If that's you, then keep reading!

Here are some practical ways to become more verbally articulate that are extremely beneficial.2

1. Think First & Slow down Your Speech

,

One of the best ways to become more verbally articulate is to first stop and think.

Think clearly about what you want to say before you say it so that you don't ramble and stumble over your words as your thoughts come.

Not only that, slow down your speech - there's no rush to get your words out and honestly, you'll sound more intelligent if you speak in a slower, concise way!

2. Avoid Verbal Pauses

Pausing when you're speaking, even casually with another person, comes across as lack of knowledge and confidence.

If you need to catch your thoughts, silent pauses are a much better alternative than "umm" or "uhh" because they show pensive thought!

3. Practice Communicating Verbally with a Close Friend

If you have trouble verbally articulating your thoughts, chances are people close to you know your struggle.

Practice having verbal conversations with those who care about you and whom you trust as often as possible!

This will help you to become more articulate in unknown social settings and will boost your confidence in your ability to be understood and heard!

4. Know What You're Speaking about

person, official, profession, speech,

Often times, it's easy to get caught up in a conversation that sounds interesting but you may not have much knowledge on the subject.

Speaking just to speak and be a part of the conversation is a good way to stumble upon words and thoughts - no one sounds articulate in these situations where knowledge is lacking, and we've definitely all been there!

It's best to stay silent and interject only when you know the topic well.
