The Art of Storytelling is a great way to improve your verbal communication skills

The Art of Storytelling, which is currently 80% off, can improve your verbal communication skills!

This course goes into detail about what makes a great story. It helps you to understand the psychology behind what makes people enjoy a story. It is always a good thing to know why people are emotionally tied to one topic or another.

Think about your favorite movies/novels. What ones do you like best? Sure, a good shoot 'em up is fun to watch, but are you emotionally invested? Probably not. Transformers is a good example of this. There is not much story there to really keep you interested,

However, what about a movie like Pulp Fiction? Sure, there is a lot of violence in that movie, but what draws you in? The story. You want to know about Mia Wallace. You want to know if someone really died giving her a foot massage. That's interesting.

What about a movie like Atonement? Or the novel for that matter? It's a movie that really draws the audience in. The audience is invested not because of the war setting, but because it is character driven. You empathize with the characters? It's not fair that they were being kept apart. The fairness of it all really speaks to people. That's what makes a good story.

This course can help you weed through all that makes something interesting, entertaining. It can help you shape that a fantastic narrative in an oral format, or via the written word.

With our The Great Courses coupon, you can expand and improve upon your own storytelling.

Think of all the ways in which you could use a course like this. Life, is just one long narrative. You have a work narrative, a family narrative, even a friendship narrative. All of those situations are based on interactions with others. Improving that interaction can improve your quality of life.

I say start the improvements today.
