You are a special person. We are all special. We are all different. When we meet new people, we learn new things; about their life, their family. What they like and what they don’t. About the problems they have. We all have problems, right? If we were all the same, maybe we would not need this word – personality. How do we learn about other people? How do we find out they are different from us? First by seeing them: Some people are tall, some are short, some are fat, some have big muscles, and some are very thin. Some people wear glasses. But these things don’t make you special. Having long hair is not special. Buying expensive shoes is not special. Your personality is special. So how do people find out how special are you? By talking to you, by understanding your life; that means you have to tell them. You have to find the right words to tell them and for that you would need to improve your communication skills and you would need to speak English fluently. Just think about those people on television who are so smart. How do you know they are smart? Because you hear them speak. And if they speak well, you know what they mean. You come to know their true personality. If you can communicate effectively and find the right words to say, people will learn about your true personality. You need to find the right words when you are looking for a job. You need to find the right words when you want to make friends. If you can say what you really want to say, people will understand your personality. This is why it is so important to be able to speak clearly, and use the right words for what you want to say. You have to work and practice if you want to improve your communication skills and speak fluently and clearly. In school, we do not get the chance to speak openly. We are only supposed to say what is written in our books, or what our teacher tells us. This does not give us practice to say what is in our heart. This needs a different kind of teaching. We need to speak and learn in a place where we feel free, and can say what we really want. This will help us in life. This will help the world learn about our personality.
