You know, I’ve been a dialect coach for almost 10 years, and while I had mostly focused on pronunciation in my first years, I recently realized that RHYTHM is the real key for ‘getting’ the flow and feel of English.
And sometimes, especially when it comes to long words, applying different rhythm makes pronunciation pretty complicated.
Now, I have a few videos that teach the melody and rhythm of English that will be released in the upcoming few months, but in the meantime,
I’d like to use this pronunciation video – how to say CONGRATULATIONS – to also discuss the rhythm in words.
Check out the video ‘How to pronounce spontaneous‘ to practice some more the rhythm in long words.
