Obviously i know that going to some debating club is an obvious answer but i dont feel confident enough with my current ability.
Since a child i have always lacked confidence when expressing myself. I found writing essays difficult and even sometimes when disscussing topics I would always end up saying "Oh whats that word" or worse end up waffling. Im also a non confrontational person which means i never had lots of opportunities to improve. I dont want to become better to win verbal fights. I just want to be able to express my opinions and feel and look confident when i do so.
Are there any good sites/books or excercises i should read or do?
