Hi, Nice to meet you.
Um, hi. Nice to meet you…too.
Do you know what happened there?
Romain’s words sounded friendly, but his intonation certainly didn’t.
And that’s what communicates the emotion. The intonation.
I’m Christina and you’re watching Speak Better, Feel Great TV.
The place to boost your English and boost your career.
In this video, I’m gonna show you how to sound polite,
not rude,
with your intonation.
You ready?
There’s a difference between sounding unfriendly
and friendly,
and it’s all in the intonation.
Listen to these examples.
I don’t know
I don’t know.
Have a seat.
Have a seat.
No, sorry.
No, sorry.
Romain , do you know one big stereotype that Americans have about the French?
We’re romantic,
have the best food,
and are très chic
right and that French people are rude.
And I’d be willing to bet
that intonation is partially responsible for this stereotype.
After all, you guys are lovely, French people.
Romain’s a nice guy.
yes i'm
But maybe your intonation is giving your American colleagues a different impression.
Let’s practice with a short dialogue.
I’ll ask a question.
You’ll see the response on the screen.
And try to say it with polite intonation.
Then listen to me (or Romain) say it.
What do you think of the report
It looks good.
Can you hear what happens in polite responses?
The intonation goes down,
and then it goes up.
“It looks good”
I don’t know
Have a seat
No, sorry.
Now that you know the secret,
let’s practice again, just like before, with some short dialogues.
Do you have any news from Claire?
Do you have any news from Claire?
I don’t, I’m afraid.
Here’s your coffee.
Here’s your coffee.
Thank you very much.
