Some people are naturally good communicators, but some others will not be. They can develop their communication with daily practice. There are many techniques that can make you to become a good communicator; you can go though watching all the talk shows; listening to all the radio programs; joining clubs dedicated to public speaking; etc.<br />What you know<br />Education is all about learning and internalizing the basic knowledge, but to be an effective communicator is to practice what you’ve learned. Knowledge is only useful when it’s applied. Of course we all have our limitations, but that doesn’t mean we can’t learn to keep up and share what we know. Don’t be afraid to share what you think as this becomes a habit, you’re shaping yourself up for a better communicator as well.<br />Listening<br />Listening is more important to develop effective communication. This is one of the most difficult things to do for many people. Most people forget that they actually have two ears and one mouth. Learn to listen more if you want to be a better communicator.

So in a group, don’t be afraid to ask if you’re saying the right word. Form mistakes only you learn the correct one and if you have any doubt don’t hesitate to ask and get the correct one.<br />Eye Contact<br />Try to keep an eye contact for better communicatin.Some people struggle to make eye contact with others, which is a basic component of social interaction. Failing to make eye contact suggests to some that you’re shy; to others, it indicates<br />Rudeness or boredom or you’re trying to hide something. Just look directly at the person in a relaxed manner.<br />Smile<br />Keep smile always in your face while you mingle with other. It gives them an impression that you are more close to them.

While you speak you can modulate your voice by using high and lower pitch.  Your volume should be soft and loud. This voice modulation adds more charm to your speech and it seems more professional.  Listen to your TV news anchor; take notes to develop your voice modulation.<br />Use appropriate volume <br />Use a volume that is appropriate for the setting.  Speak more softly when you are alone and close.  Speak louder when you are speaking to larger groups or across larger spaces.<br />Slow down <br />People will perceive you as nervous and unsure of yourself if you talk fast.
