INTERJECTIONS •Slide 1 •S1 1a- WRITTEN SENTENCES EXPRESSIVE Practice Tips~ 1• Try to hear the intonation and copy the voice pitch exactly. 2• Intonation in speech expresses the speakers thoughts or feelings. Thinking of those feelings while practicing speech rhythm will help make the expressions your own. 3• Remember to pronounce a strong R sound for practice if it is a difficult sound for you, as it is for many speakers. Lesson Notes: 1• When the main verb follows a helper verb (to be) it will always be an "ING" verb ending. 2• The high intonation in the speakers voice with joking and kidding here refer to something that is a surprise.

Practice Tips~ 1• Use basic phrases to work on expressive intonation. 2• Use basic reduced pronunciations to develop faster speaking speed. 3• You might notice a rhythm of speech where certain pairs of words are spoken close together as shown with a dash- or dot.between words. Lesson Notes: 1• Expressive casual interjections are often reduced pronunciations when spoken quickly. 2• Expressive interjections can also be spoken more clearly and sharply to emphasis a thought or feeling.

WRITTEN SENTENCES 6a-I'm not kidding! 6b-No, 7a-I'm I'm not kidding! not joking! 7b-No, I'm not joking!

  16. 16. HEY! PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS •Module 3 •M3 •Expressive ..........Interjections MODULE 3 NOTES & TIPS • Module 3 Lesson Notes -1 • Expressive interjections can be a variety of expressions or feelings such as (surprise, curiosity, strong interest, frustration, disappointment, concern, disapproval, disagreement, anger etc.) • Expressive interjections can also be seen as direct statements but not necessarily strong, negative or demanding as seen in module 4. • Everyday natural English can be difficult to learn because English uses a lot of Intonation to add ve xpressi s E tion nterjec I Voice ion ntonat I expression and secondary meaning to speech. Noticing and practicing the Intonations in module 3 and 4 will help train your ear and voice control. Friday, December 27, 13 rs speake The s motion e
  17. 17. HEY! PHONETIC SOUND SPELLINGS •Module 3 •M3 •Expressive ..........Interjections MODULE 3 NOTES & TIPS • Module 3 Lesson Notes -2 • There are a few ways in which expressive emphasis can be added to statements or questions. Usually these variations are used fluidly together depending on the speakers thoughts and feelings. • Intonation or voice pitch is a change from a normal speaking voice such as a higher tone, a lower tone, a rising tone or a falling tone. • Word or syllable stress is the strength of pronunciation. Syllable stress greatly affects speech rhythm because full pronunciations generally require more effort in mouth motion to produce a full pronunciation compared with a reduced pronunciation, which can be done faster and easier.

  18. 18. HEY! Basic Guide for Using Lang~Loops. • BASIC PRACTICE GUIDE • • Listen closely to the speakers Pronunciation, Intonation, new Sounds & Speech Rhythm. • Mimic the speaker. Match your voice with the speakers. ~try to copy it exactly as you hear it. • Repeat each looped phrase immediately as you hear it. Listen • Read the “Phonetic~Sound~Spellings” to study important sound details of spoken English. • Ask direct questions on any lesson at Sound Cloud to receive personal help and feed back.

  19. 19. 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. Focus on producing the Rhythm of speech and sound even if accurate pronunciation takes a little longer. Speech Rhythm Practice is a physical exercise. Friday, December 27, 13 Mimic Listen epeat R
  20. 20. 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.
  21. 21. 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
  22. 22. 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.
