How Eating Out Can Make You a Better Speaker
Placing your order at a restaurant is one of the most underrated and perfect exercises for practicing communication techniques (such as being more succinct, lessening your verbal clutter, or trying out a new vocabulary word). Think about it; you’ve already got an attentive audience, you can measure your effectiveness immediately, and if you screw up, you never have to see that waiter or waitress ever again. You can just eat somewhere else!
So the next time you hear, “What can I get for you?” try something new, such as placing the entire order using one complete sentence, and let me know how it goes. Good luck!
