How is it going with your “up and down” melodious voice?
As you practice speaking this way, here are some videos which may be not only helpful but also entertaining!
This is a compilation of short excerpts from popular TV shows featuring strong, fabulous women with something to say. Notice where and how they emphasize certain words, how they use different notes for emphasis, and how their femininity comes across in such a wide variety of ways.
This clip features the iconic beautiful Sophia Vergara in another popular American show called Modern Family. She has a LOT of melody in her voice – some of it comes from her Colombian background. But regardless of your accent, it’s helpful to notice her emphasis and range. Notice the contrast with the actor who plays her husband. (By the way, you’ll notice the little boy speaks very melodiously, closer to a female pattern, as many young boys do.)
Now find some more shows, movies, video clips with melodious sounding women and repeat the phrases that you really like!
“See” you soon!
