This simply means that the level and standards of communication ought to become better as they practice and improve over the years.

When I was coaching the junior public speaking group two evenings ago, I was pleased that they were forthcoming to present their speeches. While there are still more improvements to be made compared to an adult speakers, they indicate immense eagerness to apply whatever they are taught.

This fervent enthusiasm adds to their drive to become better speakers. And already, I’ve noticed quite a number of them displaying marked progress. To me, this makes the effort of coaching them very worthwhile and satisfying.

Hence, to add on, here are a few quick tips for the new speakers to apply and speak immediately:

1. If you are unsure of the topic or cannot remember what you want to say, use your imagination to help you along.

2. Keep your mind in focus on what you really want to say.
