About This Class


Learn to Speak English the Fun Way presents a super bite sized mini video class with Peter`s sidekick Crazy Mike. Peter explains what 'Intonation' is and how important it is when speaking the English Language and Crazy Mike, Peter`s twin brother, takes you through some examples by using one simple sentence. We then look at further examples of 'Intonation'.

The class, consisting of 7 short video lessons (including the introduction) is less than 15 minutes long in its entirety so this class can be digested in one chunk if you so wish.

Our project is for you to write an English sentence and then to give examples of how the meaning of that sentence can be changed depending on the intonation (verbal stress) used on any of the words in the sentence. You may show the stressed words within the sentence by writing it out several times and underlining the words you would stress to change its meaning.
