Some people use the English language in such a way that it is a pleasure to listen to them.
This video of an interview of someone who had something to say. Listen carefully to David Bowie's British accent, his range and precision of vocabulary.and how he articulates his ideas and opinions.
Pay attention to how he uses the word LANGUAGE to talk about music and creativity.

Are you preparing for the IELTS Speaking Test?
Here is a strategy that works. Listen to interviews with articulate speakers of English.
Write down new words and expressions as observe how they are used in context.
1. uttered clearly in distinct syllables.
2. capable of speech; not speechless.
3. using language easily and fluently; having facility with words:
'David Bowie was an articulate speaker.'
4. expressed, formulated, or presented with clarity and effectiveness:
"An articulate thought.'
5. having parts or distinct areas organised into a coherent or meaningful whole; unified:
'an articulate system of philosophy.'
ARTICULATE (verb used with object)
6. to utter clearly and distinctly; pronounce with clarity.
7.to give clarity or distinction to:
'to articulate an idea.'.
The opposite is INARTICULATE.
In everyday conversation, you are constantly describing people.
Practise speaking about 2 people people you know, one is articulate, and the other inarticulate.
