What is pausing and why do you need it?

Rid your speech of the familiar non-words like erm. uh, ok,right. 

Give yourself time to think of what you want to say next, it opens up space to find the correct grammar or the next phrase, expression or to find a more appropriate word.

It gives the listener time to understand what you said, and people listen and talk more with people they can understand.

Pausing can signal that you are about to say something important and therefore your listener starts to pay more attention.

Most importantly pausing builds your confidence as a speaker and is natural for a native speaker.

Discover how, when and why natural English speakers use pausing.

Be prepared to do some self-analysis with the aid of voice recording.

I will ask you to record yourself speaking in the many different situations that you need to speak English. This can cover presenting, story telling, answering the telephone, giving instruction, explaining, sales or good old fashion conversation.

 

You will learn how you can, from a recording of your speaking, make a transcript/text that you can then analyse and use as the basis of a sound scripting exercise before re-recording your speech.

With the advancement of technology we are now more able to gather samples and to analyse the language, how and what is being used. It is therefore important that you are shown some simple cost-effective ways in which you can use technology to help you achieve your goals in English speaking and to continue learning independently in the future.

 

Technology can help if you don’t have much access to ‘live’ English, it can also help to prepare you for the ‘live’ English world, and as it can be a rapidly changing world this section and it’s links will be regularly updated.

So now we have the cornerstone of speaking natural English. We can use and identify pausing. 

 

Now we need to use intonation to give our English the natural rhythm and flow. Intonation will help our listeners to understand, with clarity, what we are saying, they will get the message because we choose what is important and how to give the necessary words emphasis.
