Section 6: Pronunciation Paragraphs - Learn to match rhythm, intonation and linking
00:29

You may have noticed that even if you can produce the sounds of the English language, you still sound unnatural. That's because sound formation is only a small part of the puzzle. English is like music. It has its own flow and rhythm. Once you are able to match that flow or rhythm, you will sound much more natural. The problem is that most courses don't give you the material that will actually let you learn to match the rhythm of English. Other courses just focus on telling you about it. But in this course we would rather help you learn HOW to do it.


You must learn to match the rhythm, intonation and word linking of a native speaker. Native speakers of English learn this through constant interaction with other English speakers. We have designed these pronunciation paragraphs to match those interactions.


The paragraphs will be read at a slow speed and then a natural (fast) speed. Try your best to recreate what you hear. Read along and focus on sound production as well as matching the rhythm.
