1.LEARN ABOUT WORD STRESS 

Word Stress is golden key number one for speaking and understanding English. Word Stress is *very important*.

You can try to learn about Word Stress. This is one of the *best* ways for you to understand spoken English - especially English spoken fast.

 What is Word Stress?

 Take 3 words: photograph, photographer and photographic, for example. Do they sound the same when spoken? No!

They sound different, because *one* syllable in each word is "stressed" (stronger than the others).

2.SENTENCE STRESS 

Sentence Stress is golden key number two for speaking and understanding English. With Sentence Stress, some

*words* in a sentence are "stressed" (loud) and other words are weak (quiet). Look at the following sentence:

 We want to go.

 Do we say every word with the same stress or force? No!

We make the important words *big* and the unimportant words small. What are the important words in this sentence? Yes, you're right: WANT and GO.

 We WANT to GO.

 We WANT to GO to WORK.

 We DON'T WANT to GO to WORK.

 We DON'T WANT to GO to WORK at NIGHT.

 It's impossible to explain everything about Sentence Stress in this email. The important thing for you is that you know it exists and try to learn about it.

Sentence Stress is *very important*!
