Have you ever noticed TV News reporters talking fluently and confidently? They are able to convey so much information to many people in a short and interesting time. How do they do that? Below are some steps that you can use to practice and you learn as stages of speaking so that later you can talk as happily as they can.
Here are the steps:
1. Pay attention to news shows
Watch and see the news delivered earnestly and understand the point. Focus more closely on each reporter say and do. Then, observe not only what he says, but what they convey to you in their tone of voice, inflection [change of tone of voice], and their gestures [body language]. Try to answer the questions below yourself, by questioning yourself, before others, while analyzing them critically.
What is he saying? How did he say it? What is the reporter’s voice like? On what and who eyes lead? Where is the position of his hand? How does it regulate head motion and position the shoulder?
Speaking like a news anchor starts with having an adequate quality of reading English. The type of book you are reading is very influential. Read the same information and align it with the style used by the host when they deliver the news. Example; Biography / History Books, Newspapers, News Magazines.
It’s because what is always a good point of reading is improvising speech and enriching your ocean of vocabulary. See and find strange words that you never knew. If you do this method, this will really help you understand the contents of what you are reading and to facilitate your pronunciation skills.
Take a book or newspaper, take it to the bathroom, read aloud while facing the mirror there. And, it doesn’t have to be in the actual bathroom, as long as there is a mirror hanging and not disturbing, it’s not a problem. This is the time to really see and hear your performance. You have to practice regularly to be able to master well, the ability to glance at the written material. Catch it quickly, read it back properly, looking straight ahead.
See. how your face looks when you say, with occasional reading. Reporters have strong self-confidence when they stare at a camera.
4. Listen to your speech
Practice reading quickly, without “tripping” when doing it. It’s important, regulate the articulation of each word so that it always sounds fresh and clear when you will communicate a statement. Every word and letter, you should “stand” firm and not flow, or mix with other words.
Know when you have to slow down the sound. A reporter would say, “Coming up next” quickly, but it began to slow down when he said, “and you don’t want to miss it” [and don’t miss it].
