If you're like me and my Portuguese, you've tried language and vocabulary classes, pronunciation drills, a business course, and even presentation skills training.
But, nothing seems to change how you feel or how you are perceived when speaking English.
I discovered that
I had to forget about traditional ways of speaking a second language.
...is to use a musical approach. People think I am more fluent in Portuguese because I use the rhythm and melody of the language!
When I first started my career as an ESL teacher, I taught pronunciation. The other teachers didn't like the subject, but I found it fascinating and a compliment to my "MBA" in performance.
But, pronunciation drills became boring and my students weren't making progress. I was starting to feel concerned.
Then, I had this ah-ha moment!
"It isn't about the diction of the language. It's about the MUSIC of the language. Two very different things!"
Research shows that native speakers are wired to hear the rhythm of their language—and that's true of EVERY language. Phonetics are secondary to the brain.
I thought, "If I could help my students adopt this belief, they would be able to focus on the rhythm of the words and sentences instead of the articulation of every single sound! This can give them the confidence they're craving."
25 years and thousands of professionalss later, I am proud to say: "THIS WORKS!"

IT'S FUN! I LOVE IT!
I read Jill’s scripting exercise a few times with different rhythms and pausing to an imaginary crowd and it worked! I can’t wait to share it with the group. Thanks for the business application exercise. It is so useful.
