Thank you for coming to my class, I hope you will enjoy it! (At least in due time).

First of all some class laws:

1. Always ask when you don't understand, feel free to scream out your feelings loud.

2. Tell me when I speak too fast, or cover a topic too fast, OR too slow

3. Tell me if it is too simple, I don't really know which level you are on

LET'S START!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Pronunciation

Imagine you wish to talk to a beautiful girl (or more

casually, a hot chic) at CERN. Would you do that if

you knew she doesn't speak Japanese? I think: no =)

Why is then pronunciation important?

1. You sound a little bit more less intelligent than you

are when you have a thick accent (think of me speaking

Japanese for example).

2. When you hear yourself pronouncing things wrongly

you get discouraged and want to stop talking.

3. You get stuck trying to pronounce a word which the

hot chic doesn't understand, and this breaks up the

conversation.

4. You seem to be much better in a language than you

really are if you have a good pronunciation. This way you will feel more comfortable and practice more, and then you will get better!

Improving your pronunciation will help a lot!!!

Pronunciation

Why is this important?

Imagine you wish to talk to a beautiful girl (or more

if you knew she doesn't speak Japanese? I think not.

A way to get more comfortable is to improve your

pronunciation:

1. You sound a little bit more stupid than you are when

you have a thick accent (think of me speaking Japanese

for example).

2. When you hear yourself pronouncing things wrongly

you get discouraged and want to stop talking.

3. You get stuck trying to pronounce a word which the hot

chic doesn't understand, and this breaks up the conversation.

So let's go through the English sounds and practise!

First out: vowels!

English may have several sounds for a specific vowel or combination of vowels. One sound can also be a gluing of two sounds, like lake. This is different (I think) from Japanese.

The e and i sound: (of course there are exceptions)

Now try this: feeling

The a and o sounds

OH! I found another sound: a in far, father and archipelago. It is a chain of very many small islands, maybe like the ones between Japan and Okinawa. This is how it looks in Sweden.

The funny sound in firm, birth, skirt, blur, further: I and u when followed by r

Amoose, a funny animal that lives in northern Europe, for example Sweden. It is 2.30 m high and weighs about 850 kg.

Hot chics, they also live in the Swedish woods
