Prosody: Word Stress, Timing and Rhythm, Intonation, Fluency
Prosody is a broad term that refers to several types of speech, such as stress/accent, intonation, and timing. Like grammar and vocabulary, prosody is also a significant element of precise, natural and concise speech.To teach students English prosodic patterns, first, we have students answer five questions while their answers are recorded. Second, we analyze the recorded answers and get the result report which details the students’ delivery aspects (fluency, intonation, stress, rhythm, pronunciation) as well as use (structure, vocabulary, development of ideas) of English language. We review the results and discuss the detected problems with students. If necessary, we introduce the concept of prosody and its importance in spoken English.
Third, based on the test results, we introduce a series of practical teaching materials and recommend tailor-made activities such as listening and watching well-designed English videos in which lexical and prosodic stresses and boundary accents highlighted. It is because to address exact problems of each student and then the student can efficiently improve its spoken English proficiency.
KEEP-SPEAKING, the fourth feature of our lessons, students use our online application and practice speaking, check their performance, consult with us until they hit desired proficiency level.
