Grammar ~ Dividing Messages into Tone Units

Today we continue our exploration into the depths of English pronunciation, as a novel concept of communicative grammar. This is actually the mechanics of splitting sentences into segments of meaning, which in turn give the intonation of these segments, which we call units or pieces of information, as we have learnt last time.

Please find this lesson on the Dividing messages into tone units page.

I added this lesson in the section of pronunciation, so you will be able to access it from the English Pronunciation page as well. I hope you will enjoy it and will find it useful for improving your verbal fluency.

Writing ~ Paragraphs

Once we have finished our lesson on clauses and the ones for sentences and phrases time has come for us to consider linking sentences into a meaningful unit called a paragraph. This is the next step up towards writing meaningful essays and other pieces of literary prose, as you shall see.

Please find today's lesson on the Paragraphs page. I hope you can enjoy this lesson as well and you are noticing the progress of your writing skills.

English for Work ~ A New Perspective on Business

At a reader's request this past week, we are starting a discussion on an intriguing aspect of modern business. If you are following the contemporary developments on the entrepreneurial revolution, you will be familiar with this angle of thought. If not, perhaps you will find it interesting - have a look for yourselves. You can find these ideas on the page for the Never put profits first article.

Please let me know if you agree (or disagree) and send in your comments, if you find a couple of minutes to spare. Enjoy the food for thought and I am looking forward for a discussion to begin among you business people, members of My English Club. Thank you for your interest!

This is it for now, my friends!

I hope you find this information useful and not too confusing. Even though you're at the stage of building on it, have patience at this point in your learning and you'll be able to reap the fruit of your work later on, whichever aspect of our lessons you are concentrating on.

Please feel free to comment and suggest your ideas by replying to this email - I look forward to hearing from you. If you wish to chat either with me or with other members worldwide, go to My English Club .

All the best from me until next time,

Lucia da Vinci

Founder of My English Club
