Intonation for very advanced students
 
Hi People!
I ´ve just completed a course that I ran for non-native English teachers and, although their pronunciation was wonderful, in a couple of cases it was practically native, there were some small intonation problems. I do have the Martin Hewings book (Advanced Pronunciation in Use) which I fully intend to use in the future, but does anybody know of something, web-page, books, youtube videos etc, that I could incorportate into a class for them that won ´t send them to sleep and, more importantly, actually works? These people have a minimum C2 level. I would like to be better prepared for this in the future and I would also like to develop
something of my own. Any ideas on intonation for this level would be very welcome. As I said before, their pronunciation was fine.

What about reading playscripts where there are quiproquos like ´the importance of being earnest ´ for example ?

Thanks for that Maryse Peyé. We did some theatre stuff but we didn ´t use scripts, prefering that the students wrote their own. This could be something for us to play around with in the future. Nice idea! Smile


And thanks Redcamarocruiser, I´m just about to have a look at those links you sent me.
