Speaking a foreign language listening a foreign language l.jpg

Speaking a foreign language?Listening a foreign language!

"You can only speak a foreign language well if you can hear it properly.

That is, if you can distinguish the sounds, rhythms and music of the language."Dr. Alfred A. Tomatis


Listening l.jpg

Listening…

  • The human ear is designed to pick up a wide range of sound frequencies and perceive an infinite number of rhythms, but in practice, most of us can only recognise the sounds and rhythms of our mother tongue. In every part of the world, in every nation, people hear in different ways and this affects our ability to learn each other’s languages.


Slide10 l.jpg

  • The French use

  • a range of sound

  • frequencies

  • between 1,000

  • And 2,000 Hertz,

  • the English

  • cover 4 octaves

  • Between 2,000 Hz

  • and 12,000 Hz

  • and the Slavs,

  • known

  • for their gift with

  • languages,

  • hear and

  • express

  • themselves over

  • eleven octaves.

The organ of corti our inner body s microphone l.jpg

The Organ of Corti: our inner body’s microphone

  • Constant exposure to an environment pour in high frequencies makes the muscles in the middle ear become “out of condition”, so that high frequencies cannot enter into the inner ear.

  • We can restore our hearing (and thus our voice), by (re)training the muscles on the inner ear.

  • But how can we train the smallest muscles in our body?


Different sounds different pronunciation l.jpg

Different sounds, different pronunciation

  • When our ears cannot hear certain sounds, our voice does not contain them either

  • If we modify the hearing, the voice changes immediately

  • It is possible to improve the usage of our auditory channel:

    • (re)training the muscles on the inner ear

    • providing high frequencies


To improve the usage of our auditory channel l.jpg

… to improve the usage of our auditory channel....

  • A singing voice provides a high charge of acute frequencies, between 800 and 10,000 Hz (12.000 Hz), perceived by the singer by means of transmission via bone vibrations.

  • Singing is a primordial source of cortical stimuli.
