  8. 8. HEY! 1a- •Module-2 •M2 STATEMENTS Practice Tips~ 1• Use simple patterns like these with only one main verb to focus on faster speech rhythm. I'm kidd`n. I' m˛only kidding. 2b- CONVERSATION •Slide-1 •S1 I'm kidding. 1b- 2a- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS I'm just kidd`n. WRITTEN SENTENCES 3• Note: Remember verb (to be) rule. (Am-are-is-was + ING) Lesson Notes: 1a 2• Use short phrases like these to try to repeat the loops at the same time as the speaker. 1• -I'm kidding. 1b 2a -I'm kidding. -I'm only kidding. 2b -I'm just kidding. Short simple sentences will often have very reduced common words. Contracted words like I'm will often be reduced to only a slight M sound. Reductions can create a syllable shift if the next word starts w/ a vowel. For Example: [I'm kiddin] might sound like [m˛kiddin] or [I'm only kiddin] might sound like [m˛only kiddin]. 2• Copyright © Language~Loops 2012 ~ LanguageLoops@Gmail.com ~ Language-Loops.com Friday, December 27, 13

I' m˛only jo˛kin. 2• Use short phrases like these to try to repeat the loops at the same time as the speaker. I'm just jo˛k`n. 3• Note: Remember verb (to be) rule.

Lesson Notes: simple sentences will often have very reduced common words. Contracted words like I'm are often reduced to only a slight M sound with an inaudible I sound. 1• Short For Example: (I'm jokin.) might sound like (m˛jokin.) or (I'm only jokin.) might sound like (m˛only kiddin.)

  10. 10. HEY! 5a- •Module-2 •M2 I thin˛k´yuhr kidd`in me. Pleaz don't jo˛kuh´round. 6b- Pleaz don't ki˛duh´round. WRITTEN SENTENCES 5a -I think you're joking. 5b -I think you're kidding me. 6a -Please don't joke around. 6b -Please don't kid around. Practice Tips~ 1• For slightly longer sentences try to develop your rhythm by working on reduced word sounds and syllable shifting for faster pronunciation. 2• Note: (i think you're) is difficult to write phonetically. The syllable shift and vowel reduction is subtle but still part of the speech rhythm. Lesson Notes: 1• Joke-around, Kid-around and fool around all have the same basic meaning and are up to the speaker. 2• Fooling-around might be used more often with physical activities while joking and kidding might be used more with verbal exchanges. Copyright © Language~Loops 2012 ~ LanguageLoops@Gmail.com ~ Language-Loops.com Friday, December 27, 13 CONVERSATION STATEMENTS •Slide-3 •S3 I thin˛k´yuhr joking. 5b- 6a- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS
  11. 11. HEY! 7a- 9a- •Module-2 •M2 CONVERSATION STATEMENTS •Slide-4 •S4 He likes tuh-kid uhther people. 7b- 8a- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS He˛z´uh real kidder. He likes-tuh-jo˛k´uh-roun˛d´uh-lot. He˛z´uh real joker. WRITTEN SENTENCES 7a -He likes to kid other people. 7b -He's 8a -He a real kidder. likes to joke around a lot. 9a -He's a real joker. Practice Tips~ 1• Practice saying the same meaning in different phrases like these. 2• Adjective words like [real] are very common in everyday speech adding a more natural flow of speech rhythm. Lesson Notes: 1• Simple pronoun contractions with is + a will always sound like he˛zuh - she˛zuh 2• Words [Kidder & Joker] are descriptive nouns referring to someones personality or general behavior. Copyright © Language~Loops 2012 ~ LanguageLoops@Gmail.com ~ Language-Loops.com Friday, December 27, 13
  12. 12. HEY! 10a- CONVERSATION STATEMENTS •Slide-5 •S5 Practice Tips~ He pull˛d´uh jo˛k´on me. I pull˛d´uh jo˛k´on `im. 11a- 11b- •Module-2 •M2 Did'e pul˛l´uh jo˛k´on you? 10b- 10c- PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS Hey, that˛s´uh funny joke. 1• For slightly longer sentences try to develop your rhythm by working on reduced word sounds and syllable shifting for faster pronunciation. Hey, that˛s´naw˛duh funny joke. WRITTEN SENTENCES 10a-Did he pull a joke on you? 10b-He pulled a joke on me. 10c-I pulled a joke on him. 11d-Hey, that's a funny joke. 11e-Hey, that's not a funny joke. Lesson Notes: 1• One question pattern here to illustrate the phrasal verb with Pull meaning (to play a joke) or (enacted a joke). 2• Using the preposition on is connecting the action to the recipient of that action. Sometimes "He pulled one over on me" is used also. Copyright © Language~Loops 2012 ~ LanguageLoops@Gmail.com ~ Language-Loops.com Friday, December 27, 13
  13. 13. HEY! 12a 12c 12d CONVERSATION STATEMENTS •Slide-6 •S6 Practice Tips~ She doesn't like-tuh-tell jokes. 1• If a longer sentence is difficult to speak the full rhythm try to speak only one half with each loop, then the second half for several loops, then all together. He doesn't like telling jokes. 2• Difficult words or word pairs can also be isolated and practiced. - - •Module-2 •M2 He likes tuh-tell funny jokes. - 12b PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS - I can't tell funny jokes. 12e- 12f- I don't like-tuh-tell jokes. They don't like telling jokes. WRITTEN SENTENCES 12a - He likes to tell funny jokes. 12b - I can't tell funny jokes. 12c - She doesn't like to tell jokes. 12d - He doesn't like telling jokes. 12e - I don't like to tell jokes. 12f - They don't like telling jokes. 3• Make sure to pronounce the full letter sounds when bolded like in Jokes. Lesson Notes: 1• Note the 2 different Verb Patterns of (To-Tell) and (verb1+Telling). 2• The word [Jokes] here is a noun meaning a verbal joke or riddle. 3• Difficult word ending sounds like R & S are very important to pronounce fully. Practice hearing and speaking these endings if needed. Copyright © Language~Loops 2012 ~ LanguageLoops@Gmail.com ~ Language-Loops.com Friday, December 27, 13

  17. 17. HEY! 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.

  18. 18. 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.
  19. 19. 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
  20. 20. 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. ("A Kid" as a noun is a young child or adolescent.) • The word Joke would typically be used when referring to an actual prank or verbal joke as a noun. 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.
