But if you wish to speak English fluently, you have to become comfortable with your voice.

    1:46:40

    If English is not your native language, does it mean you have to compromise on the things you want to achieve in your life? Listening to the stories in this episode, you’ll see that the answer is absolutely not. But it wasn’t always like that. For my students who you will meet in this episode, English used to be a huge obstacle that was impossible to overcome. But with the right strategy, practice technique and mindset, they were able to make an incredible transformation in their English that led to making incredible changes in their lives, well-being, confidence, self-worth, and even salary! These are the stories of my New Sound students. Each of these remarkable individuals shares about their English journey, and especially their moments of success – a true testament to the fact that English doesn’t have to be a barrier in our lives.

    159. Learn American Intonation, Rhythm & Body Language With a Disney Princess

    16:08

    In this week’s episode, I’ll be teaching you the difference between stressed and unstressed words and sharing clips from Frozen 2 to show you how the character animation helps convey those operative (stressed) words. Stressed words are usually longer, louder, and higher in pitch while unstressed words are softer, lower in pitch, we say them quickly, and we reduce vowels there. Just like animated Disney characters, good English speakers have body movement, gestures, and facial expressions that are aligned with the intonation, rhythm, and stress of the language. If you want to enjoy everything this episode has to offer, we recommend watching the video version so you can see the clips I mention: https://theaccentsway.com/learn-english-intonation-with-frozen More video episodes about intonation, rhythm, and stress: American INTONATION – What They Don’t Teach You in School https://youtu.be/FStyKn4V8cE How to practice intonation? | Bill Murray movie speech analysis https://youtu.be/4QKfGSUTS7E Are you struggling with understanding word stress?
