    Re: How to improve communication skills?

    Communication skills are very important in personnel and professional. Communication is a basic skill which has to be nurtured; there are some people who are naturally good communicators. With little time and effort any one can master the gift of the gab and command over the language. There are few key steps involved in improving communication, they are, be an active listener- one way is to watch English movies, listen to English music ,buy CDís of novels read out in English where one can play it out and carefully listen to this as to make out each words and sentences. The more one the more comfortable they become with the language. In oral communication, taking it slow will help the communicator big time. Speaking too fast, will complicate things and the listeners will lose track of the entire topic. Another crucial part is to practice; it is the only way to improve, the more one practice, the more easier it gets. It you are not certain about pronunciation of a word then use a dictionary or website, from where one can hear the word out loud.

    Re: How to improve communication skills?

    Having good communication skill is a must to secure a good job. Also it is not possible to improve it overnight. You need to take a lot effort to improve it. Listening and reading alone will not suffice. You can begin with making reading books, newspaper aloud. The next step would be to make small presentations in topics of your choice. For the first few time you can prepare what all you would like to speak. Read it a few times. Then make a presentation in front of any of your friends or relatives. Ask them areas where you need to make changes. Select the next topic prepare the same way. In this way you gain confidence. There are also some CD and books available in the market in this area. These will also help to some extent. But making presentations is the most important.

    You can do short term certificate courses on personality development,English speaking,communication skills,etc offered by many institutes today.But be careful while choosing the institute as many of them make fake claims.The most important of all options though would be reading magazines/novels/newspapers/articles as it will enhance your vocabulary and also your intellectual side which is greatly needed in personal interviews and Group Discussions.Communicate in English in your daily life with the people you stay with,with your parents,peers,teachers, which will help you find your faults and rectify them.
    All the best...!

    The best thing you can do is do a lot of reading of newspapers, Magazines, watch English news channel.

    This will really help you in improving your communication skills. You can even buy some books from which teach you proper grammar and communication skills

    There are also some centers which teach you how to speak in public, present yourself etc. You can also apply for these types of institutes.
    you can also refer some standard books for communication skills available in the book store.......

    Effective communication is an effective tool to achieve long run success.being an MBA student you should have good communication skills. but for having good communication capabilities ,you need
    to practice a few things for example start conversing in English with your friends and relatives and try to make yourself comfortable in this language. regularly read English dailies to enhance
    your fluency in this language. if possible, join a good English speaking class, start learning new words in English and use them frequently in your routine.
