As a heavily disturbed individual with all psychological illnesses a human being can possibly have, I have a hard time to speak to foreign people.
If I got warm with the person, meaning I know em, I am most of the time in the right mindset and I speak fluently and very eloquent without any issues at all.
But if I dont know the person at all, I sometimes even got a hard time, if he has a highly personalized speech, to understand what he is saying at all. This isnt resulting from a lack of concentration but moreso that I need some time to filter his sentence in my mind from blooming elements he used to underline several key elements of the sentence, so to strip it apart and get the factual words he meant.
That results into the huge problem that I sometimes misunderstand people, if the discussion is fast-paced and answer incorrectly. Or even worse that I need some time to think about what the other one said, cause its from a field of intrest, I was never intrested in and have to get into theoretically and mindfully first.
I know most people use standard phrases in fast-paced discussions with foreigners, making the whole conversation somewhat inaccurate and them to be at cross purposes. And I want to learn that too.
Is there a way to practice public speaking you can do online ? I know the best way is to learn by observation in real life and I am doing it, just wanted to ask if maybe someone has got some nice ressources.
Good public speaking would be a nice asset to in presentations or lectures you give, but I am fairly good at those already. But I would like ressources concerning that topic too, cause maybe they have some good information about public speaking with people too.
