Is a person born to be a good speaker or does he/she trains to be one? Actually I do not have the answer to this question. I was just viewing this video off YouTube and was recalling some previous interviews by some of our members of Parliament not too long ago. All individuals interviewed were interviewed in English and none of them could claim that English is their mother tongue. But how is it that these two can speak clearly, articulately and makes sense, whereas the others (I am sure most of you will know who I am referring to without naming names heehee) mumbled, stumbled and cannot make cow sense (no offense to the cows here). Thank goodness at least one of them probably may not be exposed to more interviews any time soon (phew!)
