Did you know that words have… RHYTHM?

Maybe not like a pop song or jazz, but words have rhythm as a result of the stressed and unstressed parts in the word.

Now, every language has its own rhythm, and in this video you’ll learn how the rhythm of your language might be different than English.

Rhythm can help you significantly with your pronunciation and with understanding other people better.

In this episode, you’ll learn why it’s important and how you can practice.

  1. EXcellent video class , my dear Hadar.
    Every video from you is a mountain of new learning. Love and kisses!

  2. Hello Hadar
    It’s a pleasure to watch your videos. The word “campagne” was a revelation to me, always thought that the first part is short. Would like to know more about body language and speech

  3. Dear Hadar !
    Thank you a lot for the engrossed, riveting video of “Hadar style”. Over my stay in America the “singing” character of American English has become conspicuous several time. For Instance, the long name of one of the Institution affiliated to the University I memorized with difficulties. It was the same with the name of this Institution’s manager. If he called me on the phone (perhaps, in addition the phone system distorted a bit) I have never recognized him by his or by the Institution’s name. However, both his name and that of the Institution sounded as if they were nice melodies. These was easy to memorize and recognize. Laszlo

  4. I been wasting my time, this video is a bomb. It so amazing, words are inadequate to express.
    Thanks a million times.

  5. Intersting and helpful!
    I am practicing English again. (Intermediate level – many years ago…)
    I will follow your videos to improve my pronunciation!!

  6. Thanks for such good video. Having worked for many years in a multinational record company in Italy, I often had people ask me why do British singers sound American when they sing? Well this is because the American English has a natural rythm of jazz-rock-folk sound and the words fit in smoothly as you stated!
    Grazie e bacio
