Have you ever met someone who has the so-called Gift of the Gab?

You know those people that can talk about a subject endlessly without any effort whatsoever?

This skill is called Verbal fluency. People who have the gift of the gab have a high level of verbal fluency. 

A few weeks ago, I posted part one of this blog and today we are going to cover two really great exercises that will help you improve this skill even more. 

So, if you want to improve your speaking and communication skills, then verbal fluency is something you definitely want to learn.

In this blog, I’m going to give you two powerful exercises to increase your own verbal fluency.

Stay tuned.

Now, we are diving into improving your verbal fluency. 

If you missed the first blog on this topic, you can check that out later. It is important to read both blogs to really understand it properly. 

Let’s get started.




This increases your ability to talk about any subject endlessly and makes your brain work faster! 

Step 1: Pick any word.

It could be a simple word like PEN.

Step 2: Find Another Word That Relates to the First Word 

Example: PEN and paper.

Now, your job is to keep doing this for about one minute at least to keep your brain moving and the ideas flowing.  

Here is another tip to make it even more powerful and effective: Download a metronome app on your phone and set it to about 60 beats per minute. When the metronome starts, try and keep up one word every beat so that in 60 seconds you have spoken 60 words out loud. If you find this really difficult at first, then set the metronome at a slower speed first and then speed it up as you get better at this exercise. 

To give you an idea of how this sounds, here is an example for you: PEN – PAPER – LETTER – MAIL – BOX – POST – STAMP – FRIENDS – FAMILY – HOME etc. 

If you keep doing that for 60 seconds, your brain will learn how to go faster. Don’t worry if you mess up at first. When you are learning a new skill, it’s natural to find it a bit hard at first but if you keep practicing, you will get better. Remember: you might want to slow down at first to make it super easy and then speed up to that 60 beats a minute.



This one is called non association and we are going to do it in a similar way to the first exercise but the main difference this time is, instead of choosing related words, you’re going to choose completely unrelated words. 

Remember the reason why we do these exercises is to train our brain in verbal fluency. It also helps your brain to develop the ability to converse on many different topics, different threads and different subjects. That’s an essential part of developing great conversational skills. This exercise is going to go something like this: Let’s start with the original word PEN again. Set your metronome to 40 or 60 beats per minute, or slower if you need to at first. You might need to go a little bit slower with this non association exercise. Let’s give it a try: PEN – Carpet – Lounge – Sky – Dog – Building – Bird – Man

The goal is to keep it going for at least a minute to challenge yourself! We are making our brain work faster. Now you may find the second exercise a lot harder than the first one, so be patient with yourself until you can get the hang of it.

If you practice both these exercises daily, within just a few weeks your verbal fluency will increase exponentially. 

Do not forget: Speak up. Speak out. Be ready to be heard because remember: YOUR VOICE MATTERS.
