Ex tempore

“Ex tempore” is a Latin phrase that means “out of the moment” or “on the spur of the moment” in English. It refers to doing or saying something without any prior preparation or planning. When someone speaks or performs ex tempore, they do so spontaneously, relying on their immediate thoughts and instincts instead of following a premeditated script or plan. This term is often used in the context of impromptu speeches, discussions, or performances, where individuals respond extemporaneously without prior rehearsal or formal preparation.
