Effective communication in our work, family, friends, as well as aspects of daily life, it plays a very important role. But we don’t always communicate effectively, ineffective communicate becomes obstacle when we want to gain the success and obtain the satisfaction. Nobody is born to dare to speak freely in public, every novice often have a kind of stage fright.
I interviewed some people. My host mother is my first interviewee. She speaks in public about once a month. She likes everyone else, feels nervous and fidgety. Before she go on stage, she feels the body heat and face redden, so she is used to have a paper and pen in front of her and keeps writing some letters. She also has some ideas on the issue about how to deal with stage fright. When she is speaking, she doesn’t look at audience particular or stare at their eyes. It’s better to put eyes level focus on the back of the audience. And she likes starting her speech with a joke in order to create a comfortable atmosphere. She recommends that rehearsing the speech in front of an audience and then asking for honest feedback not only improves the speech but also makes us a more confident presenter. Note is necessary for a beginning speaker, not everyone can clearly remember all the content of speech when they are nervous. And thinking people is our family can make us feel more close to the audience. My host mother thinks she has changed with more experiences. Specially though her church activities, she has more chances to be able to speak more with others. At the same time, she also served as a volunteer, assisting people promotes her ability to communicate. Therefore, she becomes more confident rather than having stage fright.
Another person I interviewed is my father. He usually has a speech twice a week. Before he works, he was unable to make a speech as freely as now. He perspires a lot and walks back and forth before the speech starts. He also told me that even sometimes he forgets something need to

    Gym Pet Peeves If you’re a fitness freak like me or spend countless hours in the gym rather than your own home you know what goes on wants you step a foot in the gym.

    Pet peeves Some of my pet peeves are smoking, people going into my room, people saying the phrase “yah know” (when I don’t), when people try to act all cool, when people take my sarcasm seriously, another is when I pick up a rock and skip it I all- of-a- sudden get a feeling to grap another and maybe the next one that stands out. The smoking part comes from the fact that the bathrooms in this school always smell like crap because of all the stuff that people do in them. It’s almost enough to make…
