    How do you become a well spoken person?

    you know using an impressive vocabulary to impress your peers... when you're talking.






    do you have to read a lot of quality books?
    What matters is the intensity, integrity, & courage you bring to the effort.

    To presume that your 1 in 64 million chance thing is a miracle is to significantly underestimate the total number of things that there are.

    "The path of the righteous man is beset on all sides by the iniquities of the selfish and the tyranny of evil men. Blessed is he, who in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of darkness, for he is truly his brother's keeper and the finder of lost children. And I will strike down upon thee with great vengeance and furious anger those who would attempt to poison and destroy my brothers. And you will know my name is the Lord when I lay my vengeance upon thee."

    Reading books is very important, you cant be in a conversation talking and talking without being quiet and boring.

    I often see people reading bussiness magazines...don't read stupid magazines.

    Be humble and dont be cocky about what you have, let others discover what you have.

    Record yourself with a web cam, then watch it over. Try to be as objective as you can and talk about a subject you already know. Review, retune yourself, repeat till you get what you want

    edit: did you mean just vocabulary?

    like when im up in speech class talking, its hard for me to improvise, if i don't have a script. i really want to feel comfortable speaking from my own mind instead of having to rely on some paper or notecards. I see some well spoken people in my class, and I really envy how well they put their words together.. just like im in awe everytime Obama speaks.. even if it is from a teleprompter.


    but its a fact i never seen a well spoken asian in my life, probably on TV but no one i know personally

    Yes. Trying reading pre-WW2 books or translations of classics. You'll soon pick up a more refined, elegant English.

    You can also buy vocabulary builder books and CDs to listen to, perhaps an easier and more direct option.

    Some from Amazon:

    It's not too hard.

    1. Say "CHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEYAAAHHHHHH" a lot.
    2. Say "BRAAAPP" and make your fingers a gun.
    3. Say "NahwhaImeeeen?" after every sentance.
    4. Ask dogs if they "feel" you all the time. "Ya feel me, dog?"
    5. After every paragraph reference your friends and area code.
    6. Incorporate these vital words. "Ho, cheddar, chill, scrilla, pimp, pimpin, big pimpin', playah, 'b', 'g', 'get that money', 'hater'.

    Read these books:

    The Iliad
    Epic of Gilgamesh
    Last of the Mohicans
    Who Moved my Cheese?
    Lord of the Rings: Trilogy
    The Bourne Trilogy
    SPIN Selling
    Paradise Lost

    Each of these will help you develop either an expanded vocabulary, improve your listening skills or give you a different perspective on things. Thus, teaching you mental flexibility.

    Also, keep a dictionary nearby. If you come across a word you don't know, don't rely on context; but actually look the word up.

    Remember, people are often considered well-spoken because they are concise in how they put their point across.

    Don't stammer or stutter, but instead pause. Not every moment need be filled with noise.

    Good luck.
    Being of Love.

    This.
    Never try and use big words.

    Work on being precise in what you say and say as little as you have to.
    Speak clearly and confidently.

    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^

    If you want to use language effectively, then this is the book from the master:



    http://www.amazon.com/Words-That-Wor...2487309&sr=1-3

    Echoing the above posters, it's about concise, effective language, not being verbose.

    i think that grade school brain washes people into thinking that using big words and sounding intelligent are the same thing. My english prof would say all the time to use normal everyday words in essays and to use as few as possible, because otherwise you'll just sound like a douche.

    Generally yes, but verbosity does have it's place.

    Some simple rules for effective use of language:

    From George Orwell's "Politics and the English Language":

    (i) Never use a metaphor, simile, or other figure of speech which you are used to seeing in print.

    (ii) Never us a long word where a short one will do.

    (iii) If it is possible to cut a word out, always cut it out.

    (iv) Never use the passive where you can use the active.

    (v) Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or a jargon word if you can think of an everyday English equivalent.

    (vi) Break any of these rules sooner than say anything outright barbarous.

    OP, you don't necessarily need to expand your vocabulary to engage people. you just need to know how to captivate an audience. for instance, maybe you can tell a great story to your friends and just build off on that. ever notice the most eloquent speakers tend to be great story tellers? or maybe you're just asian and english IS your second language and you really can't do anything about it. hell, take a look at winston churchill, he was a stutterer and overcame that to be one of the best speakers in the history.

    Vocabulary 4000: The 4000 Words Essential for an Educated Vocabulary

    English offers perhaps the richest vocabulary of all languages, in part because its words are culled from so many languages. It is a shame that wedo not tap this rich source more often in our daily conversation to express ourselves more clearly and precisely. Many a vocabulary book listsesoteric words we quickly forget or feel self-conscious using. However, there is a bounty of choice words between the common and the esoteric thatoften seem be just on the tip of our tongue. Vocabulary 4000 brings thesewords to the fore.
    All the words you need for success in business, school, and life!
