Have you ever tried to sound more natural in English by changing your pitch and voice, but the LAST thing you felt was natural?
Or maybe you’re not trying to change ANYTHING but the voice that comes out of you is simply not your own and sounds like somebody else is speaking. How does that make you feel?
Changing your pitch to sound more ‘American’ is not a bad thing.
English has a different vocal placement than other languages, and the American voice probably has a different vocal quality than your voice in your first language (native tongue).
However, finding the proper vocal placement in English can only happen once you start feeling comfortable with your OWN voice, and once you UNDERSTAND how your voice works.
I have noticed that for many of my students their voice and pitch change in English and they simply don’t know why and what to do about it.
If that has ever happened to you, you know that when you don’t use your own voice, you don’t feel like yourself.
And not feeling like yourself may make you feel distant, detached and self-conscious when speaking English.
In this episode, I’m sharing with you why your voice changes, as well as a great vocal technique that will help your voice sound more expressive, neutral and clear when speaking English.
Also…. I will show you how my voice sounds in my native language, Hebrew, so you could hear the different vocal quality of both languages.
Share with us in the comments – does that happen to you?
