"How to stress the stress" – word stress & sentence stress

What is stress? What is unstress? Do you find it difficult to understand native speakers when they talk? One of the main reasons why communication breaks down is pronunciation. Understanding concepts such as word stress or sentence stress makes it essential for people to communicate. This interactive session will provide practical ideas on how to introduce aspects of English pronunciation in our lessons.
