Exercise 1-58: Creating Word Groups CD 2 Track 32
Break the paragraph into natural word groups. Mark every place where you think a pause is needed with a slash.
Hello, my name is_______________. I'm taking American Accent Training. There's a lot to learn, but I hope to make it as enjoyable as possible. I should pick up on the American intonation pattern pretty easily, although the only way to get it is to practice all of the time. I use the up and down, or peaks and valleys intonation more than I used to. I've been paying attention to pitch, too. It's like walking down a staircase. I've been talking to a lot of Americans lately, and they tell me that I'm easier to understand. Anyway, I could go on and on, but the important thing is to listen well and sound good. Well, what do you think? Do I? Note In the beginning, your word groups should be very short. It'll be a sign of your growing sophistication when they get longer.
