    • When we communicate, we use words, body language, and intonation.
    • What do you think is most important?
    • The teacher will say the same sentence with different intonation.
    • How does the meaning of the sentence change?
    • Why is it so important to use intonation?
  • 11. INTONATION!
    • Listen to the speakers and then choose the answer that best describes the feeling in the recording.
    • The teacher will assign two students who write the conversation down, and later read it to the class.
    • How well did they use intonation?
    • http://www.englishmedialab.com/pronunciation/upper-intermediate%20intonation%20exercise.htm
    • Remember that that if intonation is lacking, the speaker might seem uninterested and could be considered rude by native speakers.
  • 12. CONCLUSION
    • It is important to teach pronunciation so we can be understood by native or second language speakers, and we are able to understand them.
    • Using technology is an excellent way to teach pronunciation because there is a great variety of online exercises on the different aspects of pronunciation, and our students can become familiar with different accents being exposed to them on the internet.
    • It makes learners more secure in their speaking, and reduces the fear of not understanding different accents.
    • Teaching pronunciation using online exercises can be a very successful and fun way to improve your students’ pronunciation!
