Today's activity uses a site with some interactive activities from CUP to help you improve your intonation.
Go to: http://tinyurl.com/4d59se click on 'intonation'. You can then listen to some short conversations. The conversations are animated so they show you where the intonation goes up or down.
Listen to them and then try to copy them. Pay careful attention to the intonation. You can get more practice at developing your intonation using clips from movies. Find a clip of a movie you like and try to copy the rises and falls in intonation of the speaker. You can find lots of film clips on YouTube.
You can also try some of the other activities on the site that deal with word stress and sentence stress and learning the phonemic alphabet.
Hope you enjoy these exercises and try some more EFL ESL activities tomorrow.
