#2. Correct the pronunciation:

To speak smartly correct pronunciation is very important. If your pronunciation is not correct, then what are you trying to express no one will understand it and no one will feel interested in listening to you. But if your pronunciation is proper and correct then you can easily become everyone’s favorite. For example- we usually use this word “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”, but we do not pronounce it correctly, someone pronounces it as “HAPPY BADDY” and someone as “HAPPY BARDY”, but the correct pronunciation will be “HAPPY BIRTHDAY”. Similarly, practice is required for correct pronunciation. For practice make a video from yours in your Smartphone and watch it repeatedly and where you find that you are wrong, practice that again and again.

#3. Don’t go to OFF Topic:

There are some people who, while talking get diverted into another topic and there are some people who, while giving examples start indulging into a story which has no end and when the story ends they themselves asks “where I had left?” All those who present in such conversation feels irritated. Their concentration and interest are ruined. Later no one likes to listen to him. So to speak smartly, do not forget the main topic, keep interest and concentration on the topic, then the audience will feel interested in listening to you.
