In this webinar, we will use the 12 vowel sounds that you have learned so far to create the remaining 13 compound vowels, which are the eight diphthongs, or vowels made up of two sounds, and the five triphthongs, or vowels made up of three parts.
Simply put, this is where things start to get really exciting, and where you will begin to totally transform the way that you speak, and most importantly, how you feel about the way that you speak.
You will hear sounds that I hope will surprise and inspire you, and you will begin to see many practical steps that you can take which will make your speech create the absolute maximum impact. Many speakers fall into the trap of shortening or squashing vowel sounds. Think about how much meaning we can convey just by our voice and our vocal tone alone.
For example, a simple mm can convey that tastes great, mm, I hadn't thought of that, mm, or I wish you'd just shut up and get on with it, mm? This is why it is vital to know the full values of these sounds, so that when you wish to really drive a point home, then you can do so in the most dynamic and effective way.
As you learn these sounds, don't feel that they have to be full value every time you say them in normal conversation. I will teach you their full values so that you can allow these full value sounds to come into their own whenever they are emphasized, when they are the most important or emotive words of a sentence or presentation.
