Hur fungerar det egentligen, när man talar?

You wrote: I’ve tried to tell myself ”Ok, when this happens. Stop. Relax. Take a deep breathe, and then speak… smoothly”. This is really not going to help, because you are asking yourself to do something that does not have anything to do with speaking naturally. It is almost impossible to relax when at the same time, consciously or subconsciously, you are pushing words out. Taking a deep breath isn’t speaking, and speaking smoothly is very abstract. What exactly does speaking smoothly mean to you? The best way to get over the fear of the big blocks is, when you are not in a fear situation, to learn how your speech system works to produce natural smooth speech. Carry out this process again and again so that when you are afraid it will be so familiar to you that you can stay present and repeat what you have done so many times before.
