It’s also frustrating for the other person.

The whole idea of developing great communication skills is to make it easy for your audience.
Well, here’s the #1 thing you can do to make it easier for your audience, when you’re speaking English.
Yes, slow down!
Many times, it’s very difficult to understand someone when English is not their native language, and they’re speaking too fast.
Maybe you’re nervous, or excited, or have some type of emotion that’s existing, and you speak faster than what you might normally speak.

And you can use it immediately.
It might feel a little different at the beginning, but slow down.
Everyone will appreciate it.
Make it easy for your audience.
Communicate at a much higher level.
I would really love to hear from you.
