Challenges in life help us examine our priorities and use our creative resources to find new solutions to adjust to change. I have spent the last two weeks packing and preparing for my move into a new apartment. Fortunately, I was too tired to become fearful about the world news. Maintaining my peace and faith in the "good of human nature" to work together towards a common solution is what sustains me. I trust we will emerge from this world health and economic challenge with compassion, care, cooperation and a closer connection to each other. Blessings to you, Donna
Good English Intonation uses 8 tones for stress, which is the pitch change. Our voice uses a higher tone for the stressed word or syllable to give it emphasis. We also use glides which can go down or up to bring attention to the important content words, last noun in the sentence, for inflection, unfinished thoughts and questions.
This 8 Note Scale exercise increases the capacity of your vocal chords to use all 8 tones. Record yourself and listen back to see if you can do the steps and glides. This will make a dramatic change in the way you speak to sound more American. Remember, it should feel strange or sound weird, or you're not changing anything. Good luck. Let me know how you do. Please like and share. Cheers, Donna
