Welcome to Part 1 of how to use English rhythm and intonation with CHUNKING. This is a new concept for many English learners and it is a very important step in speaking English fluently. Enjoy!

Chunking will help you know how to structure the way native speakers group their words together. Chunking: creating ‘chunks’ in your message that are separated by a pause or a change in tone. Chunking really gives variety to your speaking voice and will allow your listener to be more engaged. Chunking will also help your listener understand you much easier. This is something that most non-native English speakers struggle with, but it is also something that some native English speakers have trouble with, especially when it comes to presentations or speeches. For example, a speaker who speaks in a monotone voice, and/or pauses too much. In order to find the balance in chunking, I will teach you 4 steps! In this video I will show you step 1 of the 4... STEP 1: Watch the video for this lesson and listen to me read this paragraph to identify where the chunks are (where to place pauses). Note: a chunk doesn’t necessarily need to be where a punctuation is present. Sometimes there are pauses in between words that are not separated by punctuations, like commas or periods. “Today, I’d like to talk to you about a concept called Chunking. Chunking is a strategy that great speakers use very effectively. It sounds effortless, but in fact, it takes a lot of practice.” I hope you enjoyed watching Part 1 of Chunking! Stay tuned for Part 2!

Linking is what you are teaching Chunking is an Americanism designed to catch people's eye - a marketing tool Say linking same as pronunciation books highly regarded
