Back to school

Today’s Daily Prompt is Back to school

When I was at school, I was the sort of pupil who paid attention in class and soaked up information like a sponge soaks up moisture.  So, what did I fail to learn?

One thing I rebelled against learning was how to project my voice.  I was very shy and quiet.  When I was told to go and stand at the top of the stairs and recite a passage I was given to learn by heart, I didn’t bellow it out. The intention was to practise speaking so that someone in another part of the house could hear.

I know many people with hearing loss, so I do need to pay particular attention to clear speech and raising the volume control a little.  Another blogger wrote about this in a response to prompt for the promptless this week.

Return to school?  No need for that, I can work on it in the big, wide world or just in my neck of the woods.

  2. I’ve always had difficulty projecting my voice. I often strain it in an attempt to speak over others when I feel I’m not being listened to. BUT, when I observe the most charismatic of speakers, they NEVER raise their voices. If anybody strains anything, it’s their listeners straining to hear. Nice post!

  7. Hey! thanks for leaving a lovely comment on my post! Yeah, we are both using Pachyderm, great taste! I think from the internet, we can really learn lots and returning to school may not be necessary although learning may be more thorough.
