Why speak in shorter sentences?

It’ll force you to slow down.

You’ll reduce & identify filler words more easily.

You’ll simplify the grammar.

Particularly helpful if you’re speaking in a second or third language!

So try keeping those sentences short.

Especially when saying something important.

You’ll be punchier too.
