Well, well. Now that you have been learning English for a long time and you can speak English fluently, what would you do next?
I would say, my dear, go for eloquence.
Is the word new to you?
Yes, then let me introduce you to the charming skill of English language, Eloquence.
Eloquence is adding charm to the speaking skills.
Have you ever heard Barak Obama addressing a crowd or talking with a person and you feel the charm in his way of talking, his word selections the attitude that wins in the end even if he is bantering you.
Eloquence is reflection of good manners by use of velvet tongue. No, I am not talking about snooty people who might reflect a good command over language but possess the skill of make someone's ear bleed.
Eloquence is the charm that wins the heart. To practice eloquence, you have to listen to some charming people. Note it, how they avoid using harsh words, negative terms even while talking about some critical issue, even while they are reprimanding someone.
Also, it is not a skill attached to English. I am sure you have heard some eloquent speakers in your native language as well. If you are already one in your language, I guess it will not be tough to add the charm with your English skills as well.
Now if you are wondering, "I don't know many eloquent English speakers" then my friend I have a little help here, Ted Talks. Not all, but most of TED talk speakers are eloquent. You can find some movies as well in which some character has skills to win heart by words, though, at the moment, I am not able to recall any. I wouldn't mind if you will add some suggestions in the comments.
I hope I contributed a bit to this learning community today.
[I also request you to correct my mistakes.]
