Speak like a NATIVE SPEAKER by using sentence stress in English (with examples!)

source: Benjamin's English Classes    2016年7月13日
When we speak English, putting stress on one word or another can completely change the meaning of a sentence. In this video, I'll teach you about sentence stress and demonstrate with lots of examples. You'll practice listening to two stories and learn how different stress and intonation can change the meaning of a sentence or add hidden meanings to it. This is an important part of speaking English clearly and correctly, and will help you with your English comprehension. In English, there is a saying: "It's not what you say, it's how you say it." By the end of this lesson you'll know just how true this is!
