PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS 1b 2a 2b 2c •Slide-1 •S1 Are you kidding? - Are- yuh kid˛i n ? - Are- yuh kid˛` n me? - Are you joking? - Are you jo˛ki n ? - Are- yuh jo˛k` n ? 1a - 1c •Module-1 •M1 WRITTEN SENTENCES 1a -Are you kidding? 1b -Are you kidding? 1c -Are you kidding me? 2a -Are you joking? 2b -Are you joking? 2c -Are you joking? QUESTIONS Practice Tips~ 1• The grey color of (function and linking) words means that it is often a "Reduced" pronunciation. 2• You and Yuh are completely interchangeable. Typically Yuh is spoken naturally when speaking fast or casually. 3• Try to repeat short easy phrases at the same time as the speaker. Learn to anticipate the tempo and rhythm to speak exactly at the same time in the same way. Lesson Notes: 1• PATTERN: Question Helper Verb + Subject + Verb. 2• Remember, every time the helper verb is a verb "to be" (are-is-am-was-were) the next main verb will always be an "ING" verb. 3• Joking and Kidding have exactly the same meaning. 4• The reduced sound of an ending N can sometimes be very short and difficult to hear.

WRITTEN SENTENCES 3a -Are they kidding? 3b -Are they kidding? 3c -They kiddiňg? 4a -Are they joking ? 4b -Are they joking? CONVERSATION •Slide-2 •S2 Are they kidding? 3b3c- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS QUESTIONS Practice Tips~ 1• If you hear changing voice pitch with intonation, try to mimic it exactly as you hear for the practice. 2• Listen closely in conversation for different intonation pitch. Try to connect to pitch with the emotion of the speaker. 3• Native speakers will generally not think about intonation but it reflects their feelings. Lesson Notes: 1• Sentence 3c (They kiddin?) omits the main question word (are). This is common with fast speech & commonly replaced with an ending intonation tone. 2• A simple question intonation is often a rising or higher tone but other lower or falling tones can express different speaker emotions.

  10. 10. HEY! 5a- •Module-1 •M1 CONVERSATION •Slide-3 •S3 Iz˛E kidding? QUESTIONS Practice Tips~ Iz˛E kid˛'n? 1• It's good to intentionally practice both the fully pronounced pattern and the short, fast, reduced pronunciation. Iz-she joking? 2• Practice speaking short phrases as quickly and often as possible during. Iz-she jo˛kin? 3• Note: Identical phrases that only differ in 5b6a- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS 6b- WRITTEN SENTENCES 5a -Is he kidding? 5b -Is he kidding? 6a -Is she joking? 6b -Is spoken pronunciation are paired with # & (a-b-c). Lesson Notes: 1• PATTERN: Question Helper Verb + Subject + Verb. she joking? 2• Remember, every time the helper verb is a verb "to be" the next main verb will always be an ING verb.

  11. 11. PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS HEY! 7a7b- 7c- •Module-1 •M1 •Slide-4 •S4 QUESTIONS I˛za t˛ d´uh jo k e? Wuh˛za t˛ d´uh jo k e? i˛zis´ uh jo k e? WRITTEN SENTENCES 7a -Is that a joke? 7b -Was 7c -Is that a joke? this a joke? Practice Tips~ 1• Listen for the short cut ending sounds of letters marked grey color. 2• Listen for the phrases that drop the first word "Do". 3• Some reduced sounds are almost inaudible but they still affect the rhythm. Listen Close. Lesson Notes: 1• Here "Joke" is a simple noun but the word joke is not aways a funny phrase or riddle? Joke can also be an untruthful statement or a misleading statement. 2• Notice the significant "Syllable Shift" and "Reduced" words here with the natural speech.

Practice Tips~ 1• Statements can be turned into a question with an ending rising tone or a ending question word. 2• Intonation is completely individual with each speaker. Sometimes a strong rising tone with a question tag word indicates a strong interest or curiosity. Lesson Notes: 1• PATTERN: Question Helper Verb + Subject + Verb. 2• Every time the helper verb is a verb "to be" the next main verb will always be an "ING" verb. 3• Confirmation questions can also be less direct than than a straight question.

Basic Guide for Using Lang~Loops. • SIMPLE LISTENING TIPS 1 •Use earphones to get the best sound details for faster learning. 2 •Listen with only one ear or cover one ear to hear your own voice. 3 •Hearing new pronunciation sounds clearly takes time and concentration.

  17. 17. Basic Guide for Using Lang~Loops. HEY! • TIPS ABOUT REPETITION SPEED 1 •If a loop seems too fast to repeat with the speaker, try to practice only half the phrase until you can match the pronunciation. Then work on the 2nd half of the phrase in the same way –then repeat the full phrase together. It will only take a few attempts to speak it all together. Mi m i c repeat it 2-3 times for rhythm practice before the next phrase. The more you repeat the faster you'll Listen develop more natural English Speech Rhythm. Repeat Friday, December 27, 13 2 •If a lesson section seems too slow or easy, then Repetition is the simple secret to fluency.
  18. 18. HEY! About: Key Words Joking & Kidding Mini~Course 1.0 Joking & Kidding Mini~Course Lesson notes & Tips • Vocab. & Grammar Notes • The words Joking & Kidding have the same meaning and politeness. Using one over the other is strictly the speakers choice. Kidding (might) beused slightly more between close or intimate friends, but not necessarily. • Intonation is a very important expressive tool in English and can add different layers of meaning to any phrase. Intonation or Voice Pitch can not be learned as a set of rules like grammar but must be listened to and associated with expressive situations. • Copy the speakers voice pitch to build "Sound Memory". You will hear the same Intonations in real conversation. (Sound Memory + Real Experience = Understanding) • Joking & Kidding usually can use the same grammar pattern, but not in every case. Some expressions might grammatically be the same but one might sounds more natural in everyday use. Friday, December 27, 13 Sound y Memor Real e perienc Ex nd ndersta U ing
  19. 19. HEY! About: Key Words Joking & Kidding Mini~Course Lesson notes & Tips Mini~Course 1.0 Joking & Kidding • Vocab. & Grammar Notes • One vocabulary difference is that "A Joke" as a noun & "to joke" as a verb both refer to the same topic. But, the word "to Kid" is only a verb referring to an action.

Words of similar topics like (Kid - Trick - Fool - Play) are often used when referring to a verb action. • Remember the basic rule that main verbs become "ing" verbs when following a helper verb (is-are-am) • A Joke = Noun • Joking = Verb • Ex: That's a good joke. • Ex: I'm joking. Nouns • (To) Joke = Verb • Ex: He likes to joke around. • A Joker = Noun • Ex: He's a real joker. • A Kid = Noun • Ex: That kid is a good joke teller. • (To) Kid = Verb • Ex: Please don't kid me. • Kidding = Verb • Ex: Are you kidding me? • A Kidder = Noun • Ex: That guy is a kidder, he likes to joke around. • Kids = Verb • Ex: He always kids me. • (The) Kid = Noun Friday, December 27, 13 • Ex: That kid is a big joker, always fooling around.
