Oh my, you are going to WANT to watch this interview.

In this episode, I talk to Samara Bay about the practice of how we SPEAK and how we get HEARD (with sprinkles of pronunciation).

Samara is a Hollywood dialect coach for actors in television and film; among the actors she coached are Gal Gadot, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan, Penelope Cruz. And she is also the host of the wonderful podcast ‘Permission to Speak’, which explores the power of voice and strives to change what power sounds like.

In this interview you’ll hear us talk about public speaking, feeling authentic, using your voice to speak up, and about breathing.

She will also show you a fantastic method to learn the pronunciation of vowels using body movements.

I hope you’ll love this episode as much as I do!

  1. Make your voices heard. Outstanding and without showing yours and mine “True Colors” the messages were clear. Congratulations are in order. It was indeed a pleasure listening to both of you. Invite her again…
    Regards

  2. Dear Hadar !
    Thank you for the amazing conversation with Samara Bay ! I’m sure, this conversation contains everything what is important regarding the usage of American English. I learned a lot listening to it several times. I personally regretted a bit that the pathological-medical correlates of sound formation couldn’t been alluded. This might had involved the voice changes by elderly age. For instance, that could be relevant for elderly people whose grandchildren had been born in an other English speaking country but accent barriers exist. Thank you again. Laszlo.

  3. Very interesting your advice to memorize one paragraph. Each time some different that have some meaning and passion for us
    Definitely I will do. Sound for me like a key to hear myself like a fluenty speaker.
    Great! Thanks so much

  4. Dear Hadar:
